Really amazing hostel. Has so much information available on what to do in and around the area, where to eat, walks to go on, tourist attractions, etc. The facilities are all extremely clean and great laundry room and lockers. Overall though, it is an awesome hostel.

The free wifi was very good and the location next to the central station is helpful too, it's not directly in the city centre, but if you stay in Sydney for a bit longer than two days it definitely worth it because you can easily catch trains and buses to any other direction

This is a typical hostel and there's a bar underneath which I liked but I was staying only for a night with the intention of going on a night out. Mostly liked the value for money with this place so I would definitely stay again.

It was one of the only places that catered for a family of 5. The location was really good for getting to the airport for an early start. Breakfast was included which was a bonus as we hadn't realised it was.
