  • The location is fine. Easy access to many areas of Sydney. The staff was average. Not overly friendly, but not rude. The problem was with the cleanliness. I am not a picky person. I stay in hostels a lot and don't mind dirt/dust/clutter. But this hostel was disgusting. It smelled like urine EVERYWHERE, including the dorm rooms. The bathrooms were, needless to say, a nightmare. I will not be going back.

  • Although the location is good and the price is affordable if your're looking for a long stay, the hostel could improve in so many aspects! Beds are hard as ground! Kitchen is too small for the quantity of guest this hostel can accommodate (also, it has no windows!!). Toilets and showers should be cleaned more often, smell was disgusting sometimes. Full of threats ($$) if you don't follow the rules and security deposit additional to that for the key!!. Won't stay there again.
