If the promised sauna wasn’t out of order and the room wasn’t grubby...i would have rated higher. I walked into a room that was full of bags of stuff...recently purchased stuff...it was worrying as i thought maybe it was a swag bag of abundance or something!!!! Turns out, it was one girl with a tonne of stuff...spread out everywhere. Swapping a room seemed futile and i was leaving in the morning. The view from the rooftop was super duper though...sunset tastic...oh...and a mini pool to go with the view...nice

Hi there - our apologies on the sauna, and we are onto it. With shared rooms - living communally does need a degree of cooperation between all guests. Our staff are always there to help with issues like this and would have tried to move you so if that happens again, just ask!

The location is one of the USP for this hostel. The main hub, central station is opposite to this hostel

Pros:
1)Location
2)Public transport
3)Dining
4)Facilities in hostel like tours, kitchen, movie night etc

Cons:
1)No free wifi in the rooms

Great hostel for any aged backpacker. I promoted the place for the weekend and it was nothing but a great stay. The staff was super helpful and they were very accommodating. There were so many rooms and the pool and sauna were a great feature!

Stayed fri 9/3/18- mon 12/3/18. Check in was smooth and staff member (male) was very friendly and welcoming. Two au$ to hire two towels. Hostel has lifts. I was in a four bed dorm (room 606) very spacious. Had a small balcony very convenient as was extremely warm and with the doors open it was very refreshing and airy in the room. Big size lockers in room -please note to bring a padlock for the locker. No wifi in room 606. Female bathroom on floor 6 -both the toilets and showers were clean. Kitchen/ dining area on floor 1 was clean and spaciou and theme was great.
I would definitely stay here again due to the very central location. However downside no free hostel wifi in rooms!!

Clean, safe accommodation near everything Sydney! I stayed in both private and dorm rooms in my week there. Considering the sheer volume it’s runs very efficiently. Daily activities run by the up best staff which includes three time weekly roof top burgers or sausages with beers! Pool, sauna, cinema, tour desk and luggage storage. Did I forget to mention both an attached bar and cafe? Large kitchen and restaurant like seating for do it yourself meals. My first YHA experience and you can bet I use them throughout my Australian travels to other cities. Hard to beat this.
