Having stayed here when I first got to Oz it was like coming home. Great location, so clean, friendly staff. They've made some improvements, so if your staying at the hostel you can get free Internet on the computers down stairs. Great stay again I would say though my room was right by the kitchen and I heard the cleaners...

I loved the location for my stay in sydney! Very clean hostel, only bad thing (which i could have found out before) is that it is quite a party hostel, so not the best to stay at for your first jetlaged night in Australia. But very friendly staff and looks very modern!

The doors are very loud closing, however the hostel itself is in prime position in the city. I never had to line up for a shower and they were in good condition. Staff are really friendly and the breakfast bagel in the cafe downstairs is awesome!
