Okay, the hostel has a good location. But that sort of sums up all the up's with it. It is dirty, with bugs in the rooms, only 2 toilets per floor, and the beds are hard and noisy. Also the hallway seems to be some kind of place for people to party. Earplugs and sleeping mask is a must-have if...

We had to stay here over new year with a minimum stay of 5 nights. During that time there was not internet in our 'annex' its wasn't very clean and there are only 2 showers per floor! If it hadn't been new year our time in Sydney would have been heavily marred by our accommodation,. As it was we didn't...

I shared a room in the 5th floor with 4 girls, room was clean, the bed was also not bad, no towels were provided, the shared bathroom was clean also. Though the address sent in the booking confirmation was not right, the local was in George Street and the address mentioned in the confirmation was 249 Castlereagh Street, not too...

You get what you pay for and some reviews have been harsh (and made me a little nervous). Staff were friendly, quite a few long staying people on their OE - had made friends and shared food - vibe was ok, polite etc. Shower was hot - never had a queue and everything was cleaned at 7am everyday. Didn't get...

We booked a room here as we arrived in Sydney at 9am and were leaving at 7pm on a night bus, we wanted somewhere to have a shower/sleep/relax! So it was perfect for this! Beds were comfortable, and the shower was hot!! Only problems were checking in at a different hostel down the road, and carrying our luggage up very...

The bar was the only place in Sydney that I felt 'real locals' and not toiurists or business workers , were the customers. felt honest adn welcoming for an australian bar. Also did meal deals which were good for Sydney.

First night in the hostel my room mate got bitten all over her shoulders and legs. We had noticed upon arrival that the doona covers had not been changed, but the sheets and pillow case were. When we returned to the hostel the second night, I lay on my bed for ten minutes and immediately noticed that I was starting...

I stayed here for eight days and it wasn't luxury but it was palace to sleep. It was right above a bar so it could get loud at night epically on the weekends. It was fairly clean and the beds were your standard rickety bunk beds. The upside is that they have free wifi but you have to walk a...

Have stayed at Stattons Hotel (also affiliated with World Square Hostel around the cnr) and been happy on both occasions. Rooms were clean and almost quiet, bathrooms the same... as expected, it IS a backpackers' hostel, so come expecting that. Don't arrive expecting 5 star and then pan it... you may have to share the room with someone I was...

A pretty nice hostel right in Sydney. We found the prices were good, not too expensive. The rooms were fairly clean and quiet. Bathrooms were okay, kind of a weird set up, but for the price, they were good enough. The showers were pretty clean as well. Not as impressed with the kitchen, it was small and not as clean...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.

“The kitchen is on the second floor, so there were alot of people coming and going to this level (however we were thankful to be on the second floor because after carrying your bags up World Square Hostel to check in and then carrying your bags two blocks up the road to Strattons - we wouldn't have made it up any more stairs!!)”
