Amazing! Miss it so much!

Big hostel is such a good memory of Sydney! The people that works there are so nice and friendly, and you get a lot for your money compared to other hostels in Australia! Very social, fun and clean! The rooms are big and light. The staff always helps you out if you need help with anything, and there is a very good atmosphere! Best hostel in Australia if you ask me:)

Best Hostel in Sydney

Very clean, friendly staff, close to everything in the city and has a nice rooftop balcony. I been coming here over the last several years and will always come back. I recommend this hostel to everyone who comes to Sydney.

New Years Fun in Sydney

Great budget accommodation

by Olivia O on 08 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

Booked a double room with own toilet and didn't regret it. We were only there for a night but wouldn't mind staying here for quick trips in the city. Although we did not eat brekky in their shared kitchen, it looked pretty clean. The staff were accommodating and the location is just perfect. Totally great value for money!

Great price! Clean room!

by Cheryl M on 02 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

Great price! Clean room! Quiet! Great roof top space! Lucky the dog is adorable! Elevator a little dodgy! Great location very close to train station and convenience store! 5 min train ride to circular quay, Opera house and Harbour Bridge. Would stay again with my family of 5.
