Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice hostel not far from Central Station. Clean and quiet and there are activities for guests to meet other guests. Some rooms are with private bathrooms. Friendly staff especially Dhiraj at the reception. There are many restaurants nearby.

This hostel was okay. Not good value for money though the rooms are fairly clean however the bathrooms and the kitchen are mank. We had snot on our tap and all over the walls that wasn’t once cleaned up during our stay. the hostel is quite far away from anything in the city. Staff were nice just a shame about the cleanliness 🤷🏼‍♀️

Wouldn’t recommend. Have stayed at nicer hostels in Sydney. There wasn’t great bathroom facilities - not enough toilets or showers for the capacity. There was a severe lack of sinks which I didn’t realise would be such an issue but is! The bathrooms were often dirty and not cleaned regularly. There was a lack of toilet paper constantly. The bed was uncomfortable and pillow was hard. Beds were very loud to get in and out of so felt like I was waking everyone in the room whenever I needed the bathroom. The staff were fine but not overly helpful. On check in we weren’t advised where the kitchen or lounge area was, or what the check out protocol was. When we checked out the staff never advised us what to do with the bed linen. Location was grand for Sydney, a bit further out but wasn’t really a hinderance. There was good public transport. For reference I have stayed at two other Sydney hostels, and plenty of hostels up and down the east coast.

So I tried to check in as I needed a private room a couple of days before I flew out of town. I could say the bed was comfy, the shower worked but that became incidental as I nearly gave up at check in and was thinking I’ll need to ask booking.com. For a refund. Almost all the guests I spoke to said check in was a nightmare. TWO and a half hours after arriving for check in my pleas were finally replied to. They say ring, but no one answers. They say message, but no one replies. I was literally running round in circles. The only people who tried to help were two drunks but they weren’t the only social housing staying. Chance it if you want, but don’t pay up front as when there is literally no one there and no reception you always then have the option to say stuff this and go somewhere else.

I have had the most terrible experience of starting at this place where the staff has not only ripped me off by not refunding my payment for the next day but tried to unjustly charge my credit card. There is no escalation point and manager to contact. Got abused, threatened unjustly and humiliated for no reason. Most horrible place anyone would want to stay. Avoid at all costs.. Email me of you want to see videos of how the staff harasses tenants at this place.

On a recent visit to Sydney, we stayed at this hostel as it was in a convenient location for us. While our double room was very small, it and the ensuite were very clean and serviced daily. The amenities are very basic but were sufficient to meet our needs for a four night stay and the tariff was very reasonable.

Such a terrible place. Bugs all over the place and trash wherever you walk. Dirty. Luggage storage is outside so anyone can access, stuff all over so you automatically feel like someone will steal your things. Milo the receptionist is very rude and inconsiderate. Also very difficult to communicate with him for simple things. Make sure you check the place in person before you pay for your booking. It's not worth the low price as there are better hostels for the same price in better areas. The neighborhood itself is not that great and filled with students while the hostel is filled with old men and long term people. If you are arriving in Sydney, don't choose this place as your base.

Stayed here for 2 nights in a 4 bed dorm en suite with 3 friends. The room was pretty small but had a modern and clean en suite. Didn’t use the kitchen area, it was so untidy and just looked run down. Place is a little run down in some areas but was alright for a couple night stay. Not too far from Glebe centre and bus stops nearby.

WARNING: THIS HOSTEL IS UNSAFE. Mt My life was in danger as a hostel guest stormed into the kitchen, grabbed a knife, and threatened multiple people with it. When I reporter this incident to hostel staff, the staff member pointed me out to the offender as being the one who reported the incident which immediately put me in greater risk. The staff memeber also refused to call the police or kick out the offender. When I asked for a refund because I didn't want to stay any longer at the hostel I was told he would speak to the manager but a week later I still was not refunded and so I contacted booking.com who contacted the hostel and they apparently denied the incident happened at all. Worst hostel I have ever stayed at. Beware.
