I will never, ever come back to this hostel and it is definitely nominated for being the worst hostel in my 3,5 months of traveling through Australia.
The 6 bed dorm I was staying was small and there, and the beds were so close together there was hardly anyplace to leave our backpacks. The dorms were very hot at night, and therefore we slept with open windows.. As a result we got a cockroach family in our room. The mattresses were uncomfortable and the linen didn't look very clean to me.. So I had to use my own.
The bathroom was simply disgusting, with mould at the walls and hairs and nails all over the floor. Even after the staff came 'cleaning', the same hairs where still on the floor at the same spot. Had to wait 2 days before new toiletpaper was provided in the only toilet on my floor. There where insects walking around in the kitchen, sink filled with foodscraps which nobody removed, so couldn't use them for doing dishes. Wanted to clean a pan but couldn't find anything to clean it with, asked at the reception and they didn't have a spare sponge or anything. Really, this is NOT a clean hostel and it is managed by backpackers so nobody is doing anything about it.
I did like the fact that the place is relativity quiet (no bars or anything connected to the hostel) and they have free toast with jam, thee and coffee in the morning. But unfortunately, that didn't make up for the dirty bathroom, dorm and kitchen. More than 15 minutes walking before you are in the city center. No air conditioning. And not even a cheap hostel... For the price of 33 AUD a night, you can get much better, and especially cleaner, in Sydney.
