Good location, average quality

Location, kitchen, bathrooms
Pillows were terrible, room didn't have any windows/poor ventilation, top bunks didn't have bar to keep you from falling off. Bathrooms were good as the toilets and showers were their separate rooms. Kitchen had new appliances and all the utensils/pots and pans/dinnerware you need. WiFi is reliable. Expensive compared to hostels in other countries, but cheap for Sydney!

Three nights in dirt

It's cheap for this good location (cbd).
It is unbelievable dirty. The showers, toilets, especially the floor in bathroom and in sleepingroom. It's okay for few nights, but I wouldn't want to stay longer there. But the location is very good, it's in cbd, next to clubs, bars, cinema, restaurants, cafés, shops etc. Everything u need. The Harbour bridge and opera house are in walkingdistances, also the botanicalgarden and museums.
