      This hostel is mad. ”

      I did not have a lot of expectations as the price was low for Sydney. And if I was not disappointed I was surprised positively. Staff is friendly, breakfast is awesome (and free !) : pancake, milk, orange juice, bread jams, corns. It is open until 11am. Cleanness which was my biggest fear is really good. Everything is cleaned daily and room are deep cleaned twice per week (first time I get it in an hostel). Kitchen is ok, room are not the biggest but their are alright. There is a tv room with movies and video games. And if you like to party, it is possible every day. The hostel purpose access to club nearly every day. And it is to good club. I would definitively recommend this hostel only point is it is a good 30mns walk from cbd or you take train the train (you have to pay though).

      Excellent hostel”

      Amazing price for what is included - gym membership at Fitness First, breakfast including pancakes eggs and cereals. Staff are very friendly, the cleaner mistakenly threw away my food (my fault as I hadn't name tagged it) yet reception kindly refunded the cost. Lounge room with PS4, Nintendo 64 and Netflix.

      Poor infraestructure”

      Full of rooms with just a few toilets for them. Most power plugs are broken. Very disappointed, as I expected more from a Mad Monkey Hostel

      Amazing breakfast ”

      The best thing of the hostel is the breakfast they serve in a bar/travel agency close to the hostel. Free buffet with great pancakes, eggs, etc. The room was big enough, the bathroom was OK with a shower, a toilet and two sinks (one without mirror). The air con was sometimes too cold, but that allowed you sleep with the quilt. The girls room was quiet. The lounge it's great. And also as there were renovations, every evening the gave away pizza apologising for the noise.
