I guess the Wifi, and cleanness from the bathrooms and Kitchen are the strength from Hyde Park Backpackers while the lack of 24 H staff are...

Upon arrival, the guy who met me told me what a great deal i was getting. At $120/night, i guess this place is cheap by sydney standards. If so, you get what you pay for: this place is a dump. Dirty, noisy, and bed was uncomfortable. Theres no front desk, which makes checking out problematic unless you have a local...

I stayed here 2 months and it is a very good place to stay and not too expensive. The manager is very nice. The wifi is very good and free of charge. Comfy bed and you have 4 bathrooms so you don't have to wait to take a shower. The location is perfect, nearby everything in Sydney.

The dorm room and bed was fine and everyone sharing the room were respectful and so friendly. There is quite a lovely camaraderie amongst guests/backpackers in the evenings which adds a whole new dimension! Cant go wrong...

This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”.
