31 January 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Modern and comfortable furnishings. Big kitchen and dining area with everything you need to cook/eat in, and the roof terrace is perfect for relaxing with a few beers with a great view of the city (apparently good to watch the sun set although we missed it when we were there).

Disliked: Location is great for central station, but is a little walk (10 mins) to the main shopping/bar area. The harbour (for harbour bridge and opera house) is approx 30 mins walk away, although there is a free bus that runs every 10 mins around the city centre, or you can catch the train there from central station for a couple of dollars.

Liked: Definately one of the best hostels I stayed in during my 6 weeks in Australia. Very spacious clean dorms, their lockers are great, big enough for your backpack AND all your other luggage and things! There is even a private plug in the locker (unfortunately my world adapter didn't fit there because it was too big..). Roof terrace is great, with a nice view over the city! Kitchen is very good, big, and clean. Common rooms are nice!

Disliked: Just the toilets and especially the showers, could be a bit cleaner
