We stayed there for a week in a double room with shared bathroom. The staff were so great, helpfull whenever you asked them anything. Just a five minute walk to the central train station which was very good. A very well organised hostel, kitchen and bathrooms clean. Nice to sit on the rooftop and have a drink. We were very happy with our saty there. :)

Great location near the central train station. Reception open 24/7 with staff varying from uninterested to excellent. Fantastic kitchen facilities, clean, well organized and spacey. The common areas are also spacious and comfortable with free WiFi. Not the best place to meet new people, too big and not very cozy. The rooms are clean with very squeaky bunk beds and nice, clean bathroom. There was a water leak so we had water dripping down the wall and some of our stuff got wet. All we got was a 'sorry' from the reception staff. Considering location, I guess it has to be called price worthy. Adequate, all-you-can-eat breakfast, with cereal and toast.

This was the first hostel my partner and I stayed on arrival to Sydney in Nov 2005. We stayed for 2 weeks in an en-suite double room with air-con. Very clean and well maintained. The air-con did break down but they kindly allowed us to stay in another room without having to move our luggage a couple of nights until it was fixed. Linen & towels were provided at no extra charge and the rooms were serviced daily. The cheaper weekly rate for paying in advance and free breakfast (if you're up early enough!) was a great incentive. The rooftop area was great to relax on and have a chat and the kitchen facilities were adequate. The fridges were overcrammed with food bags/boxes though and would have benefitted from more frequent cleaning out. The lounge area was very comfy but people were reluctant to mingle in the lounge area. The big screen TV kept people transfixed to the screen a lot of the time. There were old vidoes that could be borrowed to view in your room if you had a TV & video which was handy when we wanted privacy. The staff were friendly and helpful. Although rooftop BBQ's were advertised on posters, it never happened whilst we were there unfortunately. Nice place to stay but don't expect all night parties!
