Liked: It was very conveniently located in the central CBD of Sydney.

Disliked: The doors were left open so anybody could walk into the dorm. The hostel did not have any floor space to put bags, everyone was trampling over stuff. When we came home late at night there were 6 people who slept on the ground because they were unwilling to pay rent and the staff members did nothing about it.

Liked: the convenient location in central Sydney

Disliked: Everything else:-staff not helpful at all, the best you could expect was An unexpected break in at 7 am in your room in order to chase people to pay the second tranche of their stay…not pleasant while you are trying to sleep-really expensive for the hostel conditions and services offered: the kitchen in reality cannot be used at all is too dirty and disgusting, the room in a week staying wasn't cleaned once, toilets were joint with shower s , meaning you had to wait ages just to wee, also 3 toilets on a floor of 25 people it is a ridiculous number-the hostel is on 3 floors and there are only tiny stairs, no elevator -if you leave the hostel at 6am the reception will be closed and they will try not to give you back the deposit for the locker keyDefinitely not good value for money!
