Liked: This is a great hostel, I ended up living here for four months while in Australia on my working holiday visa. Would definately say its more suited to people working as there are a lot of people staying there long term but its the same in most hostels in Sydney. The good thing about Big as its a good size, its big enough so there are always lots of people but not so big that there are too many people and its hard to get to know people. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the hostel has a great living area. Also unlike some other hostels in Sydney it does not have its own bar so you are free to drink your own alcohol in the communal areas. It also has free wifi which most hostels in Sydney don't offer for free.

Liked: Had a private 4 bed room with ensuite. Was clean and towels were provided. Awesome big screen in the main rec area. Breakfast was the usual cereal and toast, but the kitchen was very clean, lots of space in the fridge and shelves to pack away your own food. Staff were super friendly and very helpful when asked about the best places to eat/drink/see etc. My parents stayed here with me and they really enjoyed it as well. Very quiet and great location!!!Overall just great! :)

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Good location, can catch free shuttle from just across the street. It was clean and felt safe. It has a good lounge area downstairs with wifi internet access.

Disliked: The wifi was at times a bit slow and you can only access it on the ground floor.
