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!

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.

Liked: Safe & secure- Need a room key card to access the lift / floors / rooms which was very good Cleanliness - spot on, cleaners seem to work really hard and very impressed Location - right outside Central Station. If you are there for under a week, by a weekly travel card for $43 which can be used for trains buses and ferry. Unlimited amount of use with unlimited destinations it seems. Otherwise it's a nice 20-30 mins away from hot spots such as botanic gardens, harbour etc Value for money - doesn't seem to get any better, espec if you catch it on a deal Atmosphere - modern, clean and spacious living area. TV rooms on level 1, Internet on ground floor and 3rd. Kitchen, dining, TV on top floor. Room - clean and spacious. Lockers in room (bring own padlock) with a plug socket which is brill.

Disliked: There are a lot of long stay residents however this has recently been changed to a max number of weeks which I think will help the atmosphere. Although the residents they had were friendly enough and invited done newbies to events etc

08 October 2012 Claire would recommend this property

Liked: Close to central station and there was a bar downstairs that served dinner too. It was clean and pretty quiet. Also organised things happening for most nights of the week. It wasn't really a "party hostel" - could be a good or a bad thing!

Disliked: The pub crawl that was organised was a bit of a mission. The person running it didn't know how to get to the first location where we met up with another hostel, so we ended up walking around for a long time. Also, the 5 pubs was reduced to 3. The other guests were pretty friendly, but lots there long term that were a bit clicky. Generally I'd say it was quite good if you are happy to do your own thing :-)

Liked: Just next to central train station. That really makes moving around Sydney pretty easy. On top of that, the bus stop for the free bus service 555 is just 5mins within walking distance.

Disliked: Staff don't greet you when you enter the hostel. They hardly even raise their head to smile at you even if there is no one they need to attend to at the counter. Only on my last 2 days were I greeted with a hello.
