Liked: Environment and sanitation are both ok. For this price, it was a satisfied dorm, we cannot ask much more for a dorm which is only $29 per day, and the most important is, it located in the city, you can almost go anywhere you want (eg. Darling harbour, Chinatown, fish market, Central station, circular quay) by foot if you live here, saved much money on transport.

Disliked: Too noisy at night, can not sleep all 4 nights, it might because that it located in the center of city, the room is pretty hot, no air conditioning, big fan only, if we closed the window, we cannot sleep as it was too hot, otherwise, if we open the window, also cannot sleep as it was too noisy.

Liked: The beds were sturdy and comfortable, a difference from our hostel before that! Actually felt as if my sheets etc were fresh. The rooms fan worked really well so it kept the room cool! The staff were super helpful and friendly. Despite being a fairly small hostel the use of the space was good. Got upgraded to a 6 female only free of charge despite booking for an 8 bed mixed dorm- very happy!

Disliked: The kitchen facilities could be a little better as they don't work excellently (the hobs) but as everything is being done up I'm not sure if these are just old and that they will be bringing in new ones. I wish there were more fridges too as it was absolutely crammed and there wasn't really enough room for all the people staying in the hostel.

Liked: Location. Bathroom was on a different level, but there were enough facilities that you never had to wait.

Disliked: Small kitchen. No lockers in the room. The one's they do have are tiny and there aren't enough for everyone in the hostel.

Liked: Great location, free breakfast and free airport pick up. Roof top terrace with views of Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Disliked: Very little atmosphere. Most of the other guests were German, either couldn't or didn't want to communicate. Very small kitchen, poorly equipped. Corridors and rooms needed a good vac. Bathrooms were sometimes very messy.

Liked: Fivei minute walk to Kings Cross

Disliked: The office check in times. Open 8 - 12. Arrived 12.05 and office was closed and did not open again until 4pm. Called number left to call if arriving outside these hours and no one answered. Stayed in private double room. Room disappointing and dirty. Carpet dirty, Fridge dirty, tv reception fuzzy. Did not enjoy my stay at all. Also paid a 10% deposit online and balance to pay on arrival but was charged full price again as person at reception said the 10% paid had nothing to do with them as that was Hostel Bookers fee? Yet when booking it stated that I would only have to pay the balance less the 10%?
