“Comfortable, good location and clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

This is a clean and well-maintained hostel. Good location with the main train station right opposite to it. Stayed in a 2 person ensuite. Bed is comfortable with a tv attached to the wall right in front of the bed. Each bedside has a closet which I reckon is more than enough for 2 person. Great common kitchen with all equipment available.

I stayed here for a week in a 8mixed dorm, bad mistake. Did not get one night decent sleep, boys were coming in and out at all times in the morning, switching the main light on waking everyone up.There was a small community area outside of the room, which was used as a place to get drunk until early hours of the morning, empty beer bottles were left there, table glass was smashed from a wild Friday night. A couple of guys did not have a room over the weekend,and as they knew one of the guys that was staying in the dorm, they decided to leave all their bags in our room, knocking at all times to access their belongings.I would have advised staff, but they were friends of these partially boys, very clicky.

Room Tip: If you are a solo girl traveller, do not pick a mixed dorm.

This is a well-maintained hostel in a reasonably good location on the outskirts of the CBD, next to the main train station (Central Station). We stayed in a four-bed dorm consisting of two bunk beds, the beds were ok comfort-wise although the metal frames did make a bit of a racket from just the slightest movement. The room contained four very large lockers which are great from a security perspective as they are large enough to accomodate a large backpack. The toilet and bathroom facilities were very clean, and the roof terrace is a lovely feature. In my view the rates were still a bit high but this may have been as a result of staying in the three days up to and including New Years Eve. Overall it is a very good quality backpackers hostel.

Really can't fault this hostel. I absolutely love it and it made my visit to Sydney! Its relaxed, easy and clean. One thing that they could of done better is explained things a little better like hanging our tags on our bed, where to put our stuff in the kitchen etc...even if it is a little booklet ? Staying in a dorm might put people off but was spacious, clean and safe! Thumbs up from me and I would defiantly recommend it to anyone! :)

Room Tip: A family would be better in a family room but if your travelling solo or with friends dorms are grea...
