Low Price But Not Safe”
Not a good chance of getting out alive if fire breaks out, very narrow hallways and stairways. Lots of litter all around caused by too much partying of guests. Forget about their free wifi because signal is always low.

The hostel give me bonus when I'm arriving there late night. I've booked the dorm-32 beds, but they give me dorm-6 beds. It was awesome! But unlucky no power source around my bed and i need to go to the rest area to use the power source (plug).

Dorms - pay for what you get and very bad wifi”
I got the huge dorm room 18-36 people at 40% off. Bed n Sheets ok, but Bottom bunks taken by long stayers - floor 2 the Church room No ladder to top bunks - ok there were rungs - usually covered Free wifi only barely worked in the kitchen and cut out every 10 minutes. I would say unusable to the point of trying to upsell you to a paid version - untried. was next to a snorer So I would next time pay the exta 5 bucks for a 6 person dorm. Plus. Cheap if on special. Good kitchen. Digital lockers medium size. 24 hour reception . Still managed an OK sleep. Would pick elsewhere if not on special. Note lots of French and Germans here - a good point.

Ehhh, gets the job done. ”
Place was alright at first. Great tag, bed already made, toilet and shower in the rooms, kitchen counters usually always cleaned and guests washed their used dishes. But the bedding or the room smelled, couldn’t tell which, there was construction going on and a bit of flooding, and absolutely no room in any of the food storage areas; including the refrigerator.

Cold & Wet”
Stayed 4 nights in 4 share dormitory during beginning of July. Once check in, the door system was broke but functioning. Reported, staff acknowledged but till I check out no one fix it. No heater in the room. we paid the same price with other room but facility is not standard across the rooms. We did asked the reception but is just apologisation from them. Just assume there's no hairdryer provided as there's always someone taken for the only one functioning hair dryer they had. The blanket is cold and wet luckily sydney is kinda warm during my stay. The staffs will apologize for any reports you made but no constructive actions taken. Cockroaches is normal in your room. No need to be panic. And if you wanna hangout in common place, be prepared to smell like the food the other guests are cooking because the ventilation is awful. They just have one lift so be patient and is totally normal if the corridor smells like puke.The only I'm glad is that my room consider CLEAN comparing other

When I arrived. Someone helped me bring my bags upstairs. Forgot to ask his name. That guy is very nice. Great staff. Thx. The room needs more fresh air. The locker under bunk is broken. There are electric lockers against the wall, u may check with the staff. The kitchen and living room is nice. Wifi is good, but seems only available at the living room.

Stayed there for four nights. Had a wonderful experience. Location is superb. Staff is very helpful and friendly especially Grant was a great help in getting the lock of my son's travel bag fixed and in explaining us different places to visit. I would definitely recommend this accomodation to others.

Dirty”
I was backpacking in Sydney and looking for a cheap place to stay. It was surprising that the hotel is so cheap in a mixed dorm type room with 32 guest in a room. However, the room is so dirty, it smells really really bad. Good thing I stayed there just for a night and I was so tired and slept right away. They did not give me linens so I asked the staff if I can have one but the staff informed me I can get linens on those vacant beds. I wasn’t sure if those linens are used or not but they are folded. You get what you pay for. Never Again. I’m sorry, just honest review. Kudos to Jenn who is so helpful.
