  • Big Hostel is in a great location. It's an easy walk from Central Station and to the Opera House, Darling Harbour, etc. The staff is A+, the room was clean. I'd definitely stay there again. :)

  • Kate and Kylie as well as the rest of their staff were amazing. They were always fun, kind, and never tired from my constant questions about how to get around where to find things I needed. The cleaning staff was cleaning cleaning cleaning. One of these two cleanest hostels I have ever stayed in over more than 25 years. People were friendly and fun to be around, shared food and drink with some great people. They kitchen had plenty of refrigerator space and dry storage area very important .
