  • Such a colourless, uninspired hostel. Where are the group activities? There is an upstairs balcony that never seems to get used, what a waste. Throw a $5 snag and can dinner once a week, gather hostelers and go out to the pubcrawl together.. some kind of activity would be good. All you're currently offering your patrons is a stiff hospital bed. 3/10 - would not recommend to anyone Also your staff are really stiff and unwelcoming. A smile goes a long way.

  • 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.
