7.6.Good.
  • 8.0.Very good

    Its a very nice and cheap place to stay. Well, always book online bc the service just wants you to charge more even if you are a longterm. An other point is for example that pancakes are promised from 9-11 or something but after 10 am there aren’t any more left and all the people who woke up late don’t get any pancakes. There is also no non dairy milk option at breakfast. And some people just take overnightguests home and are having sex with people from other hostels in your room, not taking care about anyone. Normally it’s not allowed to take non adys guests home over night but the service doesn’t care about that. It also doesn’t really care if people are stealing your stuff from the fridge and the cameras aren’t in every direction of the fridges. All in all the hostel is very good for its price, the rooms are clean and the cleaners are cleaning all the time. The Tv room is sometimes a bit smelly but that’s the only thing and the kitchen isn’t the biggest. The opportunities to go out with the hostel are very great and the pancakes are good and also the bbq. But the cheese of the bbq is also always empty if you aren’t one of the first people who eat. the rooftop is the best about the hostel and the evenings there as well! So you should def give it a try

    Nice people. Not enough room for all the people. They clean a lot. Building needs renovation. Many food for free offers. Good if you are looking for a cheap stay.

    Not a good backpacker hostel

    The dorm room was small. Bathroom and toilets were too small and always full of people near the sink. The place is so noisy with loud and drunk residents. The toilet paper quickly runs out. Shared kitchen is dirty.

    Good hostel

    A nice hostel with friendly staff. The air in the room was very bad, but the dorm was all in all in good condition. Will absolutely consider staying there again if I come back to Sydney.

    Good rooms, clean. Friendly people working at the hostel, very helpful. Only downside would be that the kitchen is a bit small. If you avoid cooking at busy hours you'll be fine.

    1) If you are a short-term or solo traveler I would avoid. Everyone I met was staying in the hostel long-term and not necessarily trying to meet new people. 2) I asked for a quieter room if possible. I was placed in a room on the first floor next to the community areas. People were yelling and music was blaring very late. I can sleep through anything so not a huge deal for me, but still annoying. 3) I’ve stayed in many hostels and this one just felt gross and dirty. Common areas are way too crowded. Fridges are jam packed. Originally booked 4 nights here and left after 1. Didn’t get a refund, but had a 1000x better experience at the Sydney Harbour YHA. Would highly recommend spending a few extra dollars than staying here, it’s not worth ruining your trip.
