As an Australian is is disappointing we have these places existing. The nice exterior and Lobby of this place shields a dark underbelly. I had a four room dorm, with bedbugs in three of the beds thrown in for free. The response of the management was frenzied apathy (both for the bugs and my blood on the sheets from bug bites), they couldn't give a damn. The reception staff are patronizing. I didn't expect this in the heart of Sydney! If I could give this hotel a negative rating I would.
The best hostel accommodation in Australia!
This place is fantastic. Run by the extremely NON-money grabbing community organization YWCA (but all ages and genders welcome) you will find boutique style dorm rooms (4 share) with air-conditioning, fluffy white towells and mini soaps, 5 star hotel style bedspreads on single beds (not bunks) subdued decor and a free delicious light breakfast, all at the standard backpacker Sydney rate. The location, opposite Hyde Park and on the corner of the trendy Oxford street (home to cheap eats, the Saturday morning Paddington markets etc) couldn't be more ideal. There are two lifts which will transport you up to your floor (no lugging a backpack/ suitcase up rickety steps). Highly recommended!!

Liked: Bed was comfortable Disliked: No very clean
Internet is not free
Breakfast very poor
Beds really close ( 20 cms in between). Not as in the pictures.
Liked: comfy beds and excellent breakfasts Disliked: it sells itself (and charges) as something more than a hostel but apart from the cafe it wasn't much different to many other hostels and had little atmosphere.
Liked: Friendly staff, central location, good value for money rooms, free breakfast, comfortable and clean. Disliked: Very few facilities (no pool, etc).
Liked: There was a problem with our booking when we arrived, but both staff and management were very good at resolving the issue.
A big thank you to the manager Stephen who was extremely helpful. Disliked: nothing
Liked: Loved the location; gave easy access to pretty much everything in the CBD Disliked: Reception staff who helped me check out and returned my locker deposit was surly and nearly borderline rude; he was an exception though, since the rest of the staff were nice. It's just unfortunate that my stay there ended on a sour note because of one staff member.
Liked: Excellent location and very good value for money for Central Sydney hotel. Disliked: Didn't realise we had shared toilet/bathroom till we arrived, but this was ok once we got used to the idea.
Liked: We were upgraded to a private bathroom room. The breakfast included is good. Disliked: Nothing.
Liked: the location is fantastic. the room was clean. I especially liked the fact that there is no double-deck but 4 single beds. Disliked: It would be better if boys and girls were on different floors by rules.
'What a fun way to travel', share room with four single beds complete with linen, towel and locker, tea/coffee and light breakfast. Share accommodation and save money.
