Great hostel, very clean and nice atmosphere!!
I can really recommend this hostel, as it is very clean and you dont feel anonymous there. The staff is so friendly they always help you with everything you need, especially the Manager helen. She was so nice and helped me finding a job. You get breakfast for free just as wifi. Its not a party hostel, quiet and for every age group. There are also some long-termers here that makes the atmosphere very familiar. I really enjoyed the stay here -- it's my favourite hostel in sydney!

Ok hostel in good location.
Hostel was alright, free breakfast, good location near Central Station, clean bathrooms, lockers in rooms. However, the beds don't have reading lights and were a bit squeaky. Be careful to wash your dishes because if you don't they take away your $20 deposit.

Friendly stuff at great location
The staff was very friendly. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. Free breakfast, free internet. The only unpleasant thing is just that there are a lot of warnings about cleaning your dishes hanging around. But maybe this is the only way to keep the place clean.

Nice cosy hostel with really friendly staff
Had a private room to myself with an ensuite, comfy double bed, good hot shower. The hostel has a nice friendly feel, communal area and kitchen facilities were fine, appreciated the included breakfast and free wifi. The staff were really cheery which was one of the best things. My only complaint is that it would have been nice to have a proper window in my room.

Excellent price, great quality
You can't beat their price. Free breakfast (jam sandwiches and milk) and internet (in the common area) are definite pluses! The rooms were what you'd expect, functional and clean. The staff was friendly, and the other guests were mostly young people.

Ok
The woman at the check in wasn't friendly at all -- when she saw that we were living in NSW, she proceeded to question us about why we were using a backpackers and commented that it was "weird." When we asked whether there were other backpacker hostels nearby, she told us to make up our minds whether we definitely wanted to book a room or not because if not, she didn't want to bother seeing if there was availability! The en-suite double room itself was ok -- the bathroom was new and the best feature in the room. Everything else was relatively clean. The room could have done with a chair or two!

Friendly, comfortable, just like home
Was greeted by very friendly staff upon arrival we had booked a double en-suite room, which was very clean and comfortable. good breakfast provided. will definitely stay there again if we visit Sydney and also recommend it to friends.

Very well organized and clean
Great location near the central train station. Reception open twenty-four/seven with staff varying from poor to excellent. Fantastic kitchen facilities and common areas with free Wi-Fi. Not the best place to meet new people, too big and not very cozy. The rooms were clean and the bathroom was very nice.
