            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.

            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.

            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).

            The location is pretty good just 2 minutes walk from the train station. I planed to stay around 2 months in the hostel but suddenly the staff said to me that I can only stay for 28 days. So basically they kick me off from the hostel (the same happen to a lot of people who was living at the hostel) For above 2 weeks we had cold showers. The staff not helping at all, they didn't offer any kind of solution just the excuse that "the plumer was coming tomorrow."Actually one girl from the dorm got a flu because the cold showers. They have free breakfast but it's not healthy at all (just bread, pancakes and cereals) and it's not serve in the hostel, you have to go to another place to get it, but luckily not to far. It's a regular hostel that offers just the basic. Not recommended at all. They're better hostel with the same price

            以這種便宜價格來說是很不錯的背包客棧, 房間乾淨程度還好但是公共區域天天都看到有人在清潔。 樓下因為是鬧區夜晚很吵, 不過基本上來這邊玩的晚上也不會待在客棧裡所以ok, 早餐很不錯,是住過附近很多旅社來講第一名! 住著各國背包客很適合交朋友, 廚房有點小可惜。
