Liked: Centrally located near Central station, walking distance (30 minutes or so) from Darling Harbour. The staff were pleasant enough. No curfew. WiFi was reasonably strong. Free washing machine and lots of space to hang washing up. Good size kitchen for the property size.

Disliked: No air conditioning, so very hot in there in summer, there was a fan on me on the bottom bunk but top bunk must have been awful. The heat and general lack of cleanliness meant it often smelt fusty in rooms and common areas. The light in my room didn't work and the bin wasn't changed in the 3 days I was there. Ladies toilet would run out of paper so would have to go into the gents to get some, and toilets/showers looked generally a bit grubby. At times you could smell the gents in the corridor. There was a sign up apologising for some intermittent cold water in the shower, but there was nothing intermittent about it, I had either lukewarm or freezing cold showers. In our 4 bed dorm there were 10 lockers, but no keys or way of padlocking them. So I asked to put my valuables in the safe, and when I went to retrieve my items the safe wasn't locked, nor was the office the safe was in, manned. Overall, the negatives outweighed the positives for me and I wouldn't choose to stay again.

Liked: This is a small hostel with a friendly atmosphere. There are several people who are staying in the hostel long term so they could advise about the area. It had free wifi and offered a BBQ one night with loads of meat and salad.

Disliked: Due to the small size of the hostel there were not many bathrooms and showers, so often had to wait to to use both.
