creepy and dirty
Never stayed asked for a refund closet sized room with filthy brown pillows wet paint everywhere.In Sydney after went all over in a taxi booked at 2 different hotels then was asked for a $500 deposit and a $300 deposit at another one ended up at Lithgow on the coldest night of the year at 1130pm first arrived at 2pm $30 in taxi rides later.

Good 6.0
Well located for the station and city
It doesn't help my stay coincided with roadworks connected to the light rail extension, but it was noisy all night, no air conditioning I could really detect, not super comfortable beds either. Service was fine, and the shared bathroom was opposite the dorm, 210 in my case, with decent showers. Really convenient for the station, and the city centre, and unlike many hostels it has a lift which was handy

Average price in a centric location.
The Hostel is located in a great area. Near restaurants, Chinatown, and supermarkets. Also, 1 min walk from Central Station. So is very convenient if you are coming/ or going to the airport. The kitchen is big and clean. Same the rooms. Restroom was small and old, a bit dirty to be honest. The only thing I disliked about the place was that I needed an airport transfer and they didn’t schedule it for me. I sent them an email request and never replied. I called them to make sure everything was ok and they said that they didn’t get any email so I tried to schedule the airport shuttle on the phone but the lady said it was ok I could do it when I check in, even tho you need to schedule it 24 h in advance. She said NO WORRIES we will do it later today, and I trusted her, obviously. Once I arrived, the girl at the front desk said it wasn’t possible, when I explained to her that the lady that morning said I could do it later her answer was. No sorry, we can’t. You can go by train is a bit more expensive but faster. Very disappointed.

Great location
Convenient location but can get a little noisy for me possibly cause it’s a younger crowd (I’m in my mid 30s)
