This is a good hostel to base yourself in for a trip to Sydney. They have nice rooms and really clean bathrooms.

There is a nice rooftop terrace, a big kitchen, laundry room and Internet access(pay).

The only downside is that there seemed to be a large contingent of People living there, mainly English, who can kind of take over the terrace or tv areas.

I stayed for 5 nights in a 4female dorm with private en suite. Bathroom and bedroom really clean. Liked key cards and lockers for security. Good value for money, especially with breakfast included. Staff werent the friendliest but overall really good accommodation in a central location.

Room Tip: Would definately invest in paying a little more to get own en-suite.

This is a clean and well-maintained hostel. Good location with the main train station right opposite to it. Stayed in a 2 person ensuite. Bed is comfortable with a tv attached to the wall right in front of the bed. Each bedside has a closet which I reckon is more than enough for 2 person. Great common kitchen with all equipment available.

I stayed here for a week in a 8mixed dorm, bad mistake. Did not get one night decent sleep, boys were coming in and out at all times in the morning, switching the main light on waking everyone up.There was a small community area outside of the room, which was used as a place to get drunk until early hours of the morning, empty beer bottles were left there, table glass was smashed from a wild Friday night. A couple of guys did not have a room over the weekend,and as they knew one of the guys that was staying in the dorm, they decided to leave all their bags in our room, knocking at all times to access their belongings.I would have advised staff, but they were friends of these partially boys, very clicky.

Room Tip: If you are a solo girl traveller, do not pick a mixed dorm.
