Recommended for basic base

location, comfy beds, good showers
It's very basic so don't stay if you want luxury. Pros - The staff are helpful and friendly. The beds are comfortable. The showers are powerful and hot water plentiful. The bathroom is clean. You have to use your key card to enter bathroom so you feel extra safe. Half an hour walk from Opera house. Cons- The WiFi is extra, you're asked to strip the beds yourself at the end of your stay. The air con didn't work in our room. They didn't empty buns in room while we were there (we stayed for three nights. Overall it's good for a base if you're there to explore the city.

Not worth

A huge kitchen. Good location. Lots of free food weekly.
The room is very dirty, there was a cockroach when I was staying. Completely no arrangement of the bed so that you have to take your bed when you arrive the room by luck. Very loud in the kitchen as lots of guys are playing music and speaking loudly inside. The laundry costs AUD8 in total, it is quite expensive. You have to pay for the luggage storage after check out, and it is quite expensive as well.

Price, location, 24 hours
The windows were shut and unable to be adjusted leaving just enough gap for traffic noise, but not air. The air conditioning didn't work, so the room was hot and stuffy. The pillows were a lumpy mess. It was clean though with a power point for charging

Great location. Friendly staff.

close to Chinatown. central train station.
Over all my stay was satisfactory. Only thing I don't like is the shared washroom and having to grab a room key and washroom key for a late night piss.

Could be a better stay.

Location, staffs and location
The kitchen need some revamping and fixing. The common areas need more clean up. The bunk bed need some tightening. Doors needs some oiling. Then all is good.

Too dirty too squeeze

Although it's not the hotel fault with a bad roommate, the hotel is too small for public space! Also the hotel is very dirty and you would not feel comfortable in this place

We were 4 adults and hence had a whole room to ourselves. Was a great experience since this is the first time we were at a backpacker accommodation.
