Liked: Staff were very sympathetic when I lost my debit card meaning I could not pay for the first night. Mixed rooms are a good value for money for short stays and they have many 2 person rooms for those who are staying longer. They cater very well for people who work antisocial hours giving access to the kitchen and living room 24/7. They provided a variety of indoor entertainment such as films, tv programs and games as well as wireless internet. There was a variety of information of how to get around Sydney and things to do there.

Disliked: The kitchen could be better equipped. One of the cookers was difficult to work and when a glass was broken it could not be cleared up straight away as there was no dustpan. The wireless internet is great but it can be really slow if many people are using it at the same time.There could be an area provided for phonecalls or Skype conversations especially for those in larger rooms who want a little bit of privacy.

Liked: Location was good and had single rooms at a reasonable price.

Disliked: The property was very poorly maintained. My single room had a window which could not be opened because it was painted shut. the hinges on the door of the adjoining bathroom were so noisy it woke me every time someone used it :(

Liked: Location of the hostel is convenient for public transport

Disliked: Cause the hostel locates beside the road with lots of trucks running during the night, the noise problem may become an issue if someone is easy to be waken up during night time.

Liked: I only stayed for one night, but it was a nice, small hostel, with a very homey feel to it. It's quite close to Central Station, and it was also pretty quiet at night. I'd definitely stay there again.

Liked: close to central station

Disliked: showers cleanliness needs a lot of improvement. hot water at showers has a mind of it's own: you wait for hot water, you think you're good to go, then the water gets cold, then it gets warm again so forget about having a shower with constant temperature

Liked: Good location, clean rooms and showers.

Disliked: 2 things. Both annoying. 1: no mosquito net on the windows (at least not in my room) but there are plenty of mosquitos and I was bitten like 10-15 times during the night. Shutting the windows was not an option because of the heat. 2: they must have very cheap and/or bad quality boilers. You have to wait like 2-3 minutes for the water to heat up and then you have to be quick taking a shower as you've only got hot water for a few minutes then you have to wait even longer for the hot water to come back on.
