    We stayed in a double room with ensuite (Room 227). There were many positive aspects: comfy bed and pillows, TV, tea and coffee-making facilities, good shower, nice and clean. The location was great, being a short block's walk from the Town Hall train station. However!...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

    I used to work there as the activities role, basically using tipi ideally is the best way for you guys to see what's going on at the hostel, unfortunately it takes ages to sign up and no one reads the messages through tipi
