    Uncomfortable stay”

    This hostel is an old broken down hostel. If not for its location at centre of town, I advise backpackers to avoid it. The bed is really bad as the springs underneath is poking you. Are the window opens out to the street below, we had to endure all the traffic noise. The carpet in our dorm is dirty and worn-out. Door lock is about to give way. Couches in recreation room are all torn down. Kitchen is full of cockroaches. Reception staff not friendly.

    I stayed here for 2 nights. The only bad thing is noise. The price is very cheap for such accommodation quality. The staff I met are friendly and nice. The security is fine, you will get your own locker to store your personal belongings.

    The location is great - they are located in the central of Sydney City. Rooms are cozy and spotless, the free Wi-Fi was fast and efficient (nothing turns me on like a good internet connection speed). They also provide free breakfast. It maybe not the best hostel in Sydney, but worth the price.

    Overall, it worth the money.”

    That was my first time staying at a hostel. Great location with essential facilities. Since it 's in the heart of Sydney city, you will not stay very quite. The security is not bad, you will got own key for your small storage container. It is a good place for young people. The only pity is alcohol not allowed in the room.

    Poor Service”

    No wifi at all. I had asked the hostel staff and agoda for assistance but there was minimum improvement Rooms were untidy and many people were staying for a long time and their things scattered around Breakfast was provided Electric plugs were not enough and several people need to share 1 plug No air-conditioning, windows were open and it was noisy. Room was dim as several lights could not be switched on

    Cheap & Affordable”

    Quite a nice hostel that basically has everything I need. Well, of course I didn't expect too much as it only charged me $25. I think it is suitable for solo or a family(take one four beds room), it close to everywhere in the Sydney city, the staff are friendly and the room is clean. It worth the money.

    Awful ”

    Dirty+++++, smelly+++++ Good location, cheap. But for the price you can get a much better one. On line it says check in time is after 10am, you would think you can check in after 10am anytime, that's why I booked with this one. But the receptionist told me it had to be after 2pm, 2pm is after 10am(WTF?) I had to wait hours as I arrived 7am. The room was so smelly and dirty! Bathroom was dirty too! Bed wasn't comfort at all! The blanket was full of hair I didn't really use it. My second day when I got back, my bed had someone else's stuff, and my stuff was some where else! I went to the reception, but the receptionist wasn't really helpful as that was his first day! He said the bed isn't by the numbers, we can pick whichever one. But I didn't check out, I don't understand why my bed was occupied by someone else. Luckily earlier in the morning there was a girl checked out, so I could move to her bed. I understand it is a cheap backpacker, but it's really not even worth for that money!
