    Room 228 - stayed on a Saturday night. OVER PRICED. Should have been alarmed when packets of disposable ear plugs were on the side table. The place was noisy because the private ensuite rooms were located above the night club which ended VERY late. THEN,...More

    It’s cheap for a reason! I think the photos are quite misleading. Just because it looks good it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s clean and worth your money! I was completely grossed out by the state of the communal kitchen. ALL of sinks were filled...More

    This hostel is next to a bar called the 'scary canary'. It's a youth hostel with a party atmosphere. I booked a private room as cheaper an alternative for more expensive CBD options for a work conference as I'm 26 and used to hostels. However,...More

    You do NOT want to stay here. The lobby is nice enough, the staff is mostly friendly. But that's all. The rooms are VERY dirty and they smell very badly. The lockers are bent out of shape -if they work at all- so it's very...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

    I used to work there as the activities role, basically using tipi ideally is the best way for you guys to see what's going on at the hostel, unfortunately it takes ages to sign up and no one reads the messages through tipi
