    Located in the heart of the city (Town Hall), it was a highly accessible location to the numerous attractions and places of interest. Several convenient locations such as Woolworths and Coles were nearby as well, making the location of this hotel a highly strategic location...More

    A dirty hostel. Staff don't treat guests with any particular kindness. It does not feel like a family. Bathrooms are not maintained. There are other hostels nearby that are better. Steer clear of this one.

    Friendly staffs, good localization right next to Town Hall ststion. The dorm with 16 people have bad ventilation hard to sleep, but occasionally they turn on the AC. Kicthen with only 1 small fridge, cleaner than I tought, but they could be cleaner.

    Well, maybe it is in the center (as some other hostels nearby), but is also one of most horrible places that I've slept in. There's no air conditioning or it doesn't work. Pillows are made of some kind of plastic, also beds are crealy quite...More

    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
