We stayed at this lodge for sometime when we were in Sydney. The location is quite good, very near the train station and close to Enmore Rd and shops.
It was clean but sometimes the cleaning lady would wear the same gloves she used when cleaning the toilet and packing up the dishes in the kitchen. The staff were friendly and helpful, Zorica and Bradislav were good. There was another receptionist who wasn't very friendly though. Sometimes when it rains they would put a note on the dryer saying out of order when they used it to dry their own things. At times it felt unsafe particularly at night when going to the toilet as all the lights were switched off by 10pm and the corridors were dark.Staff were also getting too over friendly with certain long term residents and sat in the lounge area all the time making you feel uncomfortable when you go to the kitchen or want to sit in the sitting area. There was a dog that was being brought to the kitchen which belonged to one of the staff, whilst cooking and I thought that was a bit unhygienic. Sometimes I wondered what sort of clientele this backpackers targeted. At times there was homeless people and people who were mentally unwell and this made me feel very unsafe Overall not sure its an actual backpackers or a place for homeless people.
