            • Single
              7.4

              Location. One block from the train station to the airport. I had to leave at 7:00 am and having to wake the housekeeper to get my $20.00 deposit on the key was a bit of a drag.

              It was fine for one night in town. I am 64 years old and were I to be there for any more than one day I would have chosen a grade or two higher in accommodations.

            • Couple
              2.8

              Very bad experience: bedroom dirty and bad smell (backpackers so dirty I didn't take any shower and I cleaned myself my bedroom otherway I couldn't sleep at all coz of the smell), staff not friendly at all= I cancelled my booking and I just stay 1 night. It was enought. + notice on the door " because of the number of agression at night don't be by yourself too late in the street". Nice= Get away.

            • Couple
              5.0

              Bed sheets were clean. Price per night was reasonable. Clock radio was useful.

              Did not like the fact that the carpet in the room was so old and dirty. The bed spread and blankets were also dirty and stained.

              Goodness of staff and good services getting to the customers

              The dilapidated furniture and the real estate in général

              location of the hostel

              (1) room very unclean (2) no pillow (3) bedsheet used ones left on bed

              Bad smell from the room; unhelpful frontdesk; no followingup after reporting broken bulb in toilet; extremely noisy at night (from outside traffic noise)

              6.6

              The Location was really good. Close to all the stores and the arcade. Lol

              I didn't like the fact that we had a remote for the tv and no tv. Lol

            • Single
              5.0

              The only good thing was the location.

              I stayed in the private room. Toilet kept leaking, shower had missing tiles and no curtain or door, bathroom had no door knob and did not close properly. Obvious mold throughout the room and growing on the curtains as well.

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              The location and the facilities quite enough

              New guest already came before I check out, the check out time is 10 am, and the guest came at 8.30.

            • Single
              4.2

              Location

              No lifts. Dirty room. Dirty linens/bedsheets. Musty, old smell. Cracked shower glass in the bathroom. Leaky faucet. I checked in to see the room, and checked immediately - I couldn't stay even for one night.

            • Couple
              3.8

              The images used to advertise the ensuite rooms differ from the same rooms available. We found the staff to be unfriendly and the room to be disgusting. The room is dirty and the bathroom is rotten. The room must be rodent/insect infested. I strongly discourage anyone from staying here as the room advertised differs from the one's available. I'm still waiting on my refund too.

              i didn't like anything , may be the bathroom is best , that's all

              You are right in the heart of Sydney and within walking distance of a number of attractions. Central stations is 5min away.

              This accommodation is budget. Really budget!!! If you closed the window to keep the noise out there was no ventilation. The shared amenities were on a different floor and the staff have little idea about how to fix a problem which has to be passed on to the manager who I think is fictitious. The light bulb in our room blew and was not replaced during our stay. Lucky there was street lighting shining in the curtainless window.

              A bed to sleep on

              The bathroom was very dirty and the toilet ran the entire time.
