    Location is very convenient - right smack in the spine of the city, George St. Perfect for the backpacker. Hostel is over all clean and safe. One thing though, unless you have earplugs with you, do not pick the bed next to the dorm window...More

    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
