would not recommend
good service at front desk, free WiFi, no other bonuses
I understand that this is a budget/backpacker hotel and am generally very easily pleased. However, my room was infested with earwigs and small insects, my bed was covered in dirty laundry when I arrived, the sink in the room did not work, and there was not even luke-warm water in the communal showers. Although the staff were very easygoing and great to get along with, I would not recommend this hostel to anyone. For the same price, you can find much better in Sydney.

The smell was not very good
location is great
The smell in the dorm is not very good. A price list on the wall shows shuttle bus:$12, but when I tried to book from receptionist, I was told price is $16. Then I call shuttle bus company, and was told the price is still $12. Is it cheating for $4? Not sure.
