8/10 Very good

Walking distance to the Piers, Street Trams and Buses Terminal. Located at the center of the Rocks. Safe. Kitchen and Dining area are good. Rooftop with awesome view. Only somewhat a drawback is the need of climbing many stairs in the Rocks to get to the hostel. It was quite a workout to bring our lugguages to the hostel after getting off the bus and it was a bit confusing when following google map to walk to the hostel from the pier.
