Bad hostel and bad service. The toilets is always dirty. The rooms are very small. Smells mold in the hall and luggage room. They said free wifi but it's just for 24 hours and after that you have to pay every day. I would not stay there again.

We stayed here knowing it was a place for back packers. It wasn't dirty, but obviously wasn't the most luxurious place to stay. We booked a room with a bathroom (best option) so we had a shower and toilet to our selves. The bed wasn't so comfortable but we went in there not expecting anything great and it turned out...

We stayed in this hostel for 6 nights. The location was perfect. Close to nice restaurants and good public transport to the city center. Unfortunately the hostel itself is not so good. The kitchen is dirty and there are no teatowels, so all the crockery and the cutlery are wet and you can't dry them. We didn't cook in the...

Was surprised to see this place listed as a hotel since last time I stayed there two years ago, it was a hostel. I signed up for a twin room and that's what you get - a room with two beds and THAT'S IT. Nowhere other than the floor to put your stuff, no hooks, no cupboards, nothing. Walls are...

This place is really nice and in a great location, with some really simple changes it could improve immensely! You have to pay for wifi ($3 a day!) the kitchen is far too small and often dirty. The common room was full of flies. There are very limited power sockets in the rooms. However, the rooms themselves are good and...

I was put in a dorm with four young girls who had spread their stuff out all round the room that it looked like their rucksacks had exploded. Despite the window being open the room stank of feet. The building is dark and in desperate need of some money being spent on it. I understand that the décor probably doesn't...

This hostel is conveniently located between a 5-10 minute walk from Sydney central and is relatively cheap. The facilities are mostly clean and modern and the aircon was a god send. The desk staff are friendly and helpful and you're able to leave your luggage in a room after check out free of charge which is also good. My only...

I am not too sure about this hostel in terms of the rooms that are contained within this old Victorian styled terrace - i.e fire hazard - no fire exit stairway or possible escape alternative in event of fire and some old roofing in top rooms. There is a more modern building annexed at back which I have not been...

If you are looking for a place where to stay no more than 2 or 3 nights this is a good place. It has good services as free breakfast (bread and cereals with milk, coffee and tea) or the free shuttle bus from the airport (up to $15). They also give you linen and towels. The worse part is that...

Stayed here with a group of friends awhile back. I stayed in a separate room to the group as I was always the first up for work and needed sleep. The guys were in a room out by the car park and I was next to the kitchen. With a big room comes a bit of mess. Even more so...
