        Great but..... not as described on booking site.”
        Great location, fantastic price however the advertisement on Agoda said that there was a shower this was not the case and only shared bathroom pretty disappointing that what I bought was not what was given, also disappointing they do not include towels. Super close to Central Station
        Reviewed February 16, 2019
        Thanks so much for your review. I'm sorry about the misunderstanding regarding ensuite bathrooms but our description does mention that there are shared bathrooms on each floor and every room description accurately says that they are shared. If you could give us a call and explain where you saw this incorrect information I can set about correcting it so that this confusion does not happen again.

        I've booked a room with one bunk bed just for myself for a 2 nights stay in SYD. The location is good as the hostel is close to the main railway station, the local market, China town and the other main hostels are all in the same area. The room was OK, good enough for a short stay. The shared showers/toilets were OK, clean. The communal area/kithcen is in the basement and offers plenty of seats but could be kept a bit cleaner (sticky chairs, tables, floor). All in all good times and I would book again.

        It was my second visit to Sydney and also my second stay at 790 on George's, so that would obviously mean that I had an enjoyable stay. I stayed on a 4-bed dorm, which was clean and comfy. It's just a few steps away from the Central Station, and it's ideally located. Everything you need is just within walking distance. When I needed to catch an early morning flight, the staff was kind enough to call a taxi for me.

        Location and cheap internet
        Good location, 20 mins walking from the Opera House and 5 mins from Chinatown for some cheap chinese food. Internet is perfectly working and VERY cheap! I mean, cheap for australian standards. No problems with security because you need a card to get into your room, and even for entering the toilet, and there are lockers in every room (but you have to bring your own padlock). The restroom may be cleaner but all in all good place, I would stay again!

        Thanks for your review. I'm afraid I'm not sure why your room was humid and/or wet as every room at 790 is air conditioned (with control ultimately falling to the rooms occupants). I'm sorry that it wasn't cool enough for you but if you'd have informed us at reception we could have fixed it for you immediately.

        With the construction site right in front of the hotel, surprisingly I can have a decent sleep. My room was in on the 4th floor and the noise was minimum. Always choose 790 on George whenever I visit Sydney. 10/10 Recommended.

        Suck!”
        I booked 1 room 3 person between 13-15 September and I had special request that late check-in. I arrived on 14 September at 6 am and I came to check-in but staff told me she didn’t keep the room for us because we weren’t call hotel first. I have paid via Agoda and you should keep room for us and staff so suck and she told me to keep our baggage in canteen at basement that was insecurity. The reason why I booked this place because I need to sleep around 4-5 hr before I check-in another hotel and I have booked the Meriton hotel but I can check-in at 2 pm. I’m not recommend this place so tiny and dirty. olo

        The location is the best, it takes only 3 mins to walk from here to central station and some popular places in CBD.

        Typical backpacker hostel with sharing bathrooms. Key card must carry most of the time. You need the key card to access the main entrance at night, to the bathroom, kitchen, room & toilet near to the kitchen. Location of the hostel is the best. 2mins walk to the central station where you can hoop into the light rail & train. 2mins walk to the Paddy's market, World Square, Chinatown, UTS & Capitol Square. Surrounded with various restaurants & convenience shop. This is one of the best hostel for travel with low budget.
