    Ideal location near the central station. Social atmosphere and loads of other packbackers. Kitchen is really good, is big! Room smelled a bit mouldy... pricing is a bit weird since no inhouse prices. Enjoyed my time here

    Just grab a taxi or airport shuttle. Shuttle will be cheaper by about $10, and can be easily found at the exit at arrivals. Taxi is more convenient and will cost roughly $30 to Pitt St in the CBD.
