Big hostel near central train station, clean but cramped ”

Good location for train and bus links at Central station, also near to supermarkets and cafes. Rooms are cramped but with comfy beds and large lockers and key card entry. Decent number of showers that are kept clean, be aware the reflective tiles make your shower not so private... Plenty of toilets and sinks too. Cooking facilities and common area with a TV are way too small for the number of people, always rammed and full of people lazing about watching Netflix. Good social activities organised in the evenings including free meals, but make sure you're there early as it all disappears in the first 5 mins, mainly as longer term residents are very aware of the schedule. Reception staff are helpful and friendly, large number of volunteer staff who were a bit too focused on getting jobs done than being friendly e.g. going straight into rooms when people had checked out to change sheets even while people are sleeping before check out time and making moving around in a tiny dorm harder

Excellent”

It was a great place to stay if you are out and about everyday. Breakfast is just toast and cereals. The showers are mixed gendered with quite wide gaps on the doors where people can look through, if you are not comfortable with that you should find another place. But in general it’s a nice and comfortable place to stay and easy access to everywhere!:)

Good location...”

On the whole it was a good stay and the staff were extremely helpful and knowledgable. The hostel had recently been renovated, however it could do with being cleaned more thoroughly, as our bed sheets didn't look like they had been changed from the previous occupants and the bathrooms were a bit grubby. But other than that it was good value for money and an enjoyable stay!

GREAT PLACE!”

The staff were wonderful! They were funny & helpful. The hostel had more items than other hostels I've been to. It was very clean. The only thing that annoyed me was how the lights in the shower kept turning off due to it being motion sensored. Showering in the dark at night isn't great. Otherwise, everything else was TERRIFIC about this place! Definitely would recommend :) Thank you to all the staff members!

Very very dirty accomodation I've ever used. ”

I didn't have a time to arrange to book a hotel in Sydney for business travel. So no option to book on the day I flied to Sydney. I am not a picky customer. However, this accomodation is the worst one I've ever used. There was lots of dust and hairs on the bed and the room was fill with very unpleasant smell by no cleaning. Me and my partner couldn't sleep at all on the dirty bed. Strongly recommend not to use this accomodation. All the photos are fake or taken 10 years ago.

Sympa bien que quelques defauts”

Bonne ambiance dans cette auberge bien située, avec une wifi fonctionnelle et petits dej compris ! Les deux éléments qui m'ont un peu dérangés ou manqués sont : une cuisine spatieuse pour cuisiner (elle est très étroite!) qui va de pair avec une petite salle à manger qui fait office de salon, et un manque d'aération dans la chambre à l'origine d'une odeur pas hyper agréable. Pour le reste, j'ai rencontré des personnes super et apprécié mon séjour sur place !
