Room smells and wasn't what I seeking

Rachel M. Solo travelers Australia, January 14, 2014
pity about the shower

clean in the rooms, toast, tea & coffee provided free
would have been ok if there was more than one (very moldy) shower for half of the whole establishment.

Don't stay here unless u absolutely have to

Possibly, the location. That's it.
This is by far the dirtiest hole in Sydney. That place is so filthy they Should be ashamed to take money for staying there. The bathrooms and showers were absolutely Disgusting, simply imagine someone's mustache Glued to the wall less that a meter next to u. It was excruciatingly hot in the room, the cheap fan Couldn't handle the heat and every time someone Closed the door somewhere else in the building, The room door banged so loud it was almost Impossible to sleep. On top of all that, they charged very high which is Basically an outrageous, shameless ripoff. Dixi

Everything good, but if free internet wifi will cool
Chris B. Solo travelers New Zealand, October 27, 2013
Good for the budget

Near parking, near downtown, very reasonable price
I did get some sleep. I met some interesting people. I was able to have a shower, shave, go to the toilet and ask reception where to find some important places.

Easy Access to transportation and city area

Cozy, Close to train, cheap
We stayed 3 nights in double room. Room was very basic, but with some strange stains on the upper wall. Nice to have your own fridge in the room good for traveler who cook a lot. No lift means if you have a 20+kg suitcase like my GF you will have a difficult time
Thomas A. Couples United Kingdom, August 26, 2013
Fine for a hostel. Best location for metro/trains

located very close to central station
Hostel was fine. Staff at the desk were very helpful even though they hadn't received the agoda booking... They sorted it all out for us. Recommend the location, because you can cross the road, get on a tram, and get into the city centre.
