Liked: The location was fab and the staff very friendly, helped by the fact we got upgraded to a free private room on arrival! It wasn't like a hostel the facilities were better than some hotels I've stayed in

Disliked: The only negative I can say is the fact the bin lorries drive down the streets at the rear of the building at 3am and there are several of them waking you each night

Liked: Very spacious rooms, very comfortable beds. Quiet if you want to relax but plenty of spaces to socialise as well as evening activities to meet other guests. Clean bathrooms, nice showers. Half hour free wifi on arrival and free left luggage facilities. Minimal charge for internet afterwards. Lots of computers. As only stayed one night didn't use all facilities but kitchen is big and clean with lots of fridge space. Overall, a great hostel!

Liked: I liked that the facilities and the room were very clean. It's also very quiet so you can have a nice night if sleep... The location is also good, just in front of the central station and about 5 min walking to George's street. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Very pleased.

Disliked: To be prefect it could have some coffee or restaurant facilities... Other than that nothing really.

Liked: It is very clean and modern. There are sockers in the lockers, whats a goid thing when you are traveling with a laptop, Ipod etc. The rooftop is great! You have a stunning view above Sydneys skyline. The staff is very friendly! Everything is very organized.

Disliked: I think it's more a hotel than a hostel - too many people! I prefee smaller hostels with more atmosphere. This one is nice, but the best hostels are the small ones where the staff can remember your name :)

Liked: The hostel was very clean and well-secured. The staff was super nice and helpful. The location was really excellent, because being right across the street from the main train station was really helpful to a newcomer in the city. I never had to worry about getting really lost. It was a great place, and I will stay there again.

Disliked: Nothing, everything was great!

19 December 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Excellent location, great facilities, rooms were well designed air conditioned and comfortable. Rooftop terrace was lovely.

Disliked: Most of the staff were great, except for one male cleaner who was exceptionally rude to us, and one male receptionist who was also incredibly rude, dismissive, and gave us incorrect information about the area. A hostel of this calibre, especially one trying to reach into the hotel market, should have a better handle on who they are hiring.
