Dirty Hostel with Promise

Location, Staff, Location
This basic hostel is located right in the CBD on a major st, near Central Stn (you can literally see the stn from outside the hostel; great for arrivals from the airport). The staff are very friendly and eager to help you. And the price could not be more attractive. However, there's much room for improvement. First, they need to clean. I don't expect any communal living area to be spartan, but this hostel was a biohazard. Trash appears not to be taken out til the very end of the day...or the next morning, fridge foods are not removed and allowed to rot (opening up the fridge was similar to lifting the trash can lid), surfaces were covered in filth. The carpet was untouchable. Drink cans were left to dry up in the lounge area. The bathroom somehow fared the best, but that wasn't great either. Anyways, bottom line is there needs to be regular frequent cleaning perhaps every 2 hrs and especially after peak times in the kitchen/bathrooms. Secondly, better heat insulation. We were here during the winter, and were quite cold. That and the thin walls and old windows allowing every street noise to penetrate through gave me the experience of sleeping homeless on the streets of Sydney. Nice social experience, but not what I signed up for. I hope that they plan to purchase better windows to keep out the cold and the noise. And more blankets. I can only imagine what the hot summers are like. I can't emphasize enough how wonderful the staff are, and I think that this is the saving grace of this hostel. When I asked to print out my boarding pass, the manager went home and printed it off his personal computer and brought it back to me the next day. When I complained that the wifi was inadequate, I found good wifi in the lounge area the next day. There are ongoing improvements being made, and I'm sure given the location, price, and service, this hostel will rise up in the ranks. But at its present state, I won't recommend.

Centrally located hotel with poor performing staff

location and cleanliness
Hostel staff during check in was not very professional. She requested for payment again although the booking was from Agoda(she should know that it has already been fully paid). Then the next horrifying thing is that she pen down my credit card number with the security code at the back on a piece of rough paper. I have to cancel my credit card because of her. Apart from that the hostel does seems to be fine. The toilet/shower is quite clean.

Heater needs improvements. Staff is friendly.

Staff is friendly. Centrally located. Easy access to public transport.
The water heater needs to be improve. It can get noisy at times due to traffic and bar near the area. Other than this two main issues. It was quite a pleasant stay.

Served the purpose.

, the staff, the staff
For 2 very tired people coming to Sydney after a very long flight, we were very disappointed at the low standard. However, the staff could see how tired we were and went out of their way to help. We cannot speak highly enough of the staff who looked after us and their pleasant manner.

Friendly, budget, located in city center, clean

Quite during night time, the owner is very honest and friendly, walking distance to most of the places in Sydney city, clean beds.
The hotel is a new hotel just opened 2-3 weeks when I stayed there. The owner is the staff there very friendly and warm hearted. Kept asking me if there is any thing I need. Although the business is still small it can be very flexible. Good experience when staying there. Even there are many bars around, in the night time it was very quiet. Close to the central station, convinient.

Just awesome!!

It's location is just amazing, we're located in the city, at thai town. Good food is everywhere and you can easily walk to paddy's market, chinatown, darling harbour and more. The bed is comfy too.
It was just great! It has carpeted floors though.. some might find that gross but personally the entire place felt rather clean and the beds are really comfy. room is spacious too. location is great. would stay here again!

Perfect for budget travelers!

Location, security and cleanliness
The check in and out process was quick and swift. Room is a good size for 3 of us and the bathrooms are clean. The front door is locked at night and only accessible via key card so you do not have to worry about the safety. Accommodation is near the central train station and there are a fair bit of clubs and pubs around at walking distance. Overall it is good for budget travelers who want to live in the city.
