Stayed in a 4bed dorm and the room was way to small for 4 people. Also strange that they only had 3 lockers and 4 beds so there was no locker left for me. Luckily I made a friend in the room who i got to share locker with instead. The showers and toilets were combined which got them occupied...

Stayed here for our first stop in Australia. Had a warm welcome by reception who continued to be friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Our room was very basic but comfortable. We had two fans, however the room was still too warm! The bathrooms were very clean and spacious. However, they were very rarely empty and there was often a...

Heard a couple of good reviews for this place but was very disappointed. The hostel looks so badly run down and has no air conditioning which isn't always needed in hostels but this hostel really needs it! The room was so hot all the time! there was a fan in the room but it took ten minutes to start working....

Staff weren't the most friendly but that's fine, common area with tv is very cramped and in order to get to my room I had to walk through is amongst all the people and walk in front of the tv which was a little awkward. I had a 4 bed mixed dorm, it had a private bathroom, it was clean...

We stayed here for 3 nights and liked the location (close to kings cross station and the opera house /harbor bridge) and the kitchen, which is well-equipped and clean. The room and bathrooms were also clean and the bed was good. Then, the downside(s). WiFi was free, but very slow, and only worked in the common area; for decent WiFi...

Eva's was recommended to me by a friend in Melbourne. I only had a week in Sydney to see the sights and relax between jobs and Eva's Guesthouse was just perfect! The rooftop overlooking Sydney skyline was stunning and all of your amenities (laundry, kitchen untensils) are all available to you. With reference to reviews saying this is not a...

Hostel is okay, staff really friendly but there isn't really a good common area to meet people and there's no atmosphere. No music can be played at all but it just depends what you want. Rooftop was nice, Kings Cross station is close. If you want a quiet stay, choose this hostel

I just stayed at Eva's for a couple of days and really enjoyed it. It felt much more personal and cosy than most of the other hostels I've stayed in in Australia. I really liked that they offered free tea, coffee and hot chocolate and provided free towels. The staff were very friendly and helpful too. My only criticism was...

Pretty good hostel. Reception and cleaning staff were very friendly. I stayed in a four bed room with en suite and everything was very clean. The room was a bit on the cramped side and it was incredibly hot at night. I would genuinely avoid this hostel during summer becuase of this. But in winter it would be quite cosy...

We stayed here for 5 days and it proved to be a good choice. It's very clean (a cleaner comes everyday who is lovely by the way, she even got me a fan because I said I was hot). Good modern facilities and rarely had to wait to use them, although 9am is a busy time FYI! We had a...
