I didn't realise this was above a club, i got no sleep which was a pain. It was ok not the best, but would avoid if you want to sleep and don't want to lie awake all night. If you are after the party scene being in a central location then this would do i guess.

The location is excellent and the price is extremely cheap for its location. That being said the rooms are a bit stuffy (no AC) and there is a club across the street that plays really loud music till one or two in the morning. The staff were all extremely nice and did a great job. It might be worth it...

Cockroaches, bathroom kitchen and rooms 3. 1 toilet and 2 showers for the whole floor 4. WiFi only works on level 2/3 5. Drilling and roadworks going...

Dirty, old, disgusting. Nothing like the photos. Smells. Rude staff. Location is good but that's the only positive I can think of! The whole place needs completely re doing. Above a loud and smelly bar. No fans in rooms. Bathrooms were not cleaned in 3 days

I stayed here in a 4shared. The rooms are just simple, with a bed and a locker. The bathrooms are very clean! There is in the ladies bathroom a hairdryer, always good! The kitchen is ok, its not very clean and there are just bars where you can sit, there are no tables for groups. At the reception there is...

Fairly clean very social hostel with large rooms and good kitchen. Staff are friendly, unfortunately no good social area but best location for everything plus cheap bar underneath. Slightly noisy due to George Street.

Great and calm hostel. $30 is a good price for the location and quality. We got an upgrade to a four - person room wich is great :)! A nice was the bathtub at the guys bathroom at the top floor. Kitchen isn't that big though, but you'll have enough places to eat at george street

The location of the hostel in relation to the middle of the city is ideal. Being in the same building as a pub gives you an early impression of the type of place it might be. A hostel like this is always going to be a place for people who are enjoying the party life Sydney can offer. I arrived...

Cheap accommodation in the middle of the city. Furthermore there is a bar/club below the hostel (Bar Century) which serves the cheapest drinks (3 AUD for certain drinks/beer/wine all the time). Loved staying in this hostel.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
