2 nights staycation”

Staff were so friendly and accommodating. The bathrooms were clean and the room was not too bad — there were 3 of us in the room. The location is perfect! A lot of food places around and walking distance to Darling square/harbour/Haymarket/George st/central station. If you want an affordable accommodation, not fussy with shared bathroom and that is in the heart of the city then try booking here! 😊👌🏻

Amazing hostel!”

This hostel is amazing - we've stayed in a bunch of hostels all over the world and this is one of my favourites. Great facilities esp the kitchen! No free wifi but we bought the 7-day pass for $12. Staff is great. Lots of activities, drink coupons in nearby bars, and free food days! Highly recommend!

Good Location & Price for a Private Room”

Good Location & Price for a Private Room, albeit shared bathroom but these were kept clean. An extremely friendly atmosphere. On 3 nights per week I think, they do a free dinner for everyone which is great fun. Check which nights. On the downside, there are a lot of backpackers & they do hit the grog pretty hard. The Maze even has certain nights with 'drinking games'. However this isn't a huge problem, I've never heard any trouble, it just makes the kitchen area a bit loud some nights. Staff are all nice & helpful, definitely try it out if you're looking for a cheap private room. *** Make sure you request a 'street view' private room.

I feel really safe staying here. The Location is really convenient to bus and train station. It is also located near shopping center, grocery, restaurant and Chinatown. Shower and toilet are always clean. The room is okay, beds are really nice and clean. The only thing is the carpet is not clean and has a foul smell already. Friendly and accommodating staff.
