Great location with perfect view. Clean room and tours available. Professional staff too.”

Great location just beside Shangri-la with perfect view of opera house and harbour bridge. Impressive kitchen and rooms are clean. Joined a tour to bondi beach walk which is free and interactive and cool. I am most grateful for the professional handling of urgent matters by the staff. I did have an unpleasant incident in the hostel which started off with a crazy old lady singing in the middle of the night and the staff transferred me to a shared room. But the guy sleeping below me bed was violent and he snatched my bag and hit me. So in one night I met some crazy and violent fellows. In fact I was so scared I could only message through agaoda and the staff replied almost instantly. But fortunately the staff responded fast to both situations professionally and helping me through. I am glad to be given a private to stay in the end too. So it is reassuring to know that you can rely on the staff for help when needed. But do be watchful for females who stay in shared dorms as it is really vulnerable for women staying in mixed dorm with violent guys.

Comfortable stay throughout. Enjoyed my trip much thanks to being in the heart of Vivid Sydney. Very well located within the Rocks. Love the rooftop for lazy nights no need to go out to watch the lights. I wish they can do late checkout but since they can't, it wasn't too bad waiting for my airport transfer in the common area.

So close to the harbour, Circular Quay, Barangaroo, Bridge Climb & The Rocks. The 180 degree view from the rooftop terrace is amazing.

Good”

I stayed in a 4-female-room and the room was big. I loved the neighborhood since it was very in lively mood in the evening and you could walk to the Rocks market. The only downside is that you should take a walk up the hill unless you take a taxi. If you carry out over 20-inch-luggage, you will curse yourself for 8 minutes to get there. However I really liked the space a lot. Strongly recommended.

Spacious room was great but little hard to get there”

The room was so spacious(wide) and with the bathroom inside, it was great. The bathroom and the room was frequently cleaned. The staffs were nice too. But the hostel is littel high, on the hills, so it was hard for me to get up there. Plus, there wasn't a bus station near which made it bit harder. But anyway I'll definetly go there again if I have a chance.
