    very bad not clean and safe

  • 7.0
    Very good

    Staff appeared to mainly be residents working for their board and were not particularly knowledgeable about the building or the surrounds.

    Good

    Its low budget and exactly what I expected. so all good.

    noice level at the hotel, I guess due to its location in the centre of the city, can not be helped

    Location was excellent for centre of city - train station really close

    Mattress & pillow really soft so a little uncomfortable for anyone with back problems.

    Location

    The showers - they had hot water but just a trickle of water. The kitchen wasn't well equipped, I had to buy a mug in the supermarket as there were never cups or mugs available and the bathrooms were really filthy

    The location is good, but other backpacker hostels are also in good location.

    The building is old, not clean. The shared bathroom/restroom is extremely dirty, only once staff-clean a day. The walkway is smelly. The pillow is dirty, the mattress is not comfort. I really do not recommend to stay in this hostel as it was my only bad experience traveling Sydney.

    The staff here were really friendly!!location of this place is quite good,near to train station.the room,kitchen,toilet,shower room are all very clean and tidy,I lived there for two night,everyday I could saw hardworking staff cleaning the public area around the hotel,staff here make me feel like family members :) even allow me to take photo with them as a memory of my journey in sydney.this place is not as good as the 5 stars hotel,but it bring to me the atomosphere of home~I will rather choose to stay here instead living in those expensive 5 stars hotel...I Will sure recommend this place to my friends and hope to come back again!awesome place!brighten up my journey! Miram & mum

    The room was just a little bit smelly,butI treat it as the smell of home~

    Very good

    communal shower and tpilets are used by a great number of people sp they were messy but to be expected with the great price and location, very popular with the young party crowd

    Staff were really friendly and chipper.

    The state of the hostel makes it a pretty depressing building to stay in. My room had burnt out carpets and the blanket provided smelt so bad I had to put it in the cupboard. It really could do with some heavy duty investment and TLC. If not a coat of paint? The lack of air con made it very hot and the whole place smelt (although I think that was more to do with guests leaving stinking footwear on window sills). I know its aimed to appeal to younger and more laid back travellers but I think there could be more prominent messaging re general quiet and respecting folks sleep. Of the 3 nights all were broken by people coming in drunk, being loud etc. All in all I felt depressed at the thought of returning to the hostel at the end of the day. But the staff were very lovely and friendly.

    Fabulous

    room was cheapest . location is good ,close to central train station and cbd.room was clean and bathroom facilities good . i thought it might be noisy because it was backpackers but it wasnt and also rooms are quite noiseproof

    a. the checkin time was 2 pm . and checkout was 10am b. the storage room was in basement and luggage had to dragged through narrow stairs to be stored there . also the luggage had to carried up to room and no lift available ,was difficult because it was crowded

    The friendly Irish lasses that were very helpful. The location. That is all.

    I wish I had read some of the reviews on other travel sites. As this place absolutely awful. I booked a single bed and room, and fair play to them; that is what I initially got. However, the bed was terrible, it squeaked and the mattress was so worn, I could feel the springs through it. The room was small, dirty and putty was coming of the windows & the wardrobe was decidedly dodgy. On top of that all I got to put my stuff on was a chair. The second room they gave me was better, but no wardrobe and someone had been smoking in there. There were also stains on the floor and I would not like to know what they were. The bathrooms were horrible and half the locks did not work and the tiles on the floor were missing and it was generally unkempt. All the carpets in the building were extremely worn and looked like they had never been cleaned since being laid. There was no control of the folk there and generally it was old, dirty and dated. Out of 10, I would rate it 2 and that is because the friendly Irish lasses there were very helpful and apologetic. Overall, I would not advice anybody to stay there.

    Fabulous

    It was really cheap, I have to say. Only 25bucks for a night ( three of us took a room) and only a min walk to clubs LOL Well for this price, you just cant complain anymore :)

    It was not that clean but yehhh acceptable i guess?
