I checked in for about three days and the rooms were lovely. Well equipped with a TV a fridge and a dresser. It was kept well and the manager was a kind man. It was very private and close to alot of good sites and shops. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Had a misfortunate situation which led me to this wonderful location. Never stayed at a hostel prior and believe me, I was weary. Ironically the stay lasted close to a month and never had an issue. The owner is/was always helpful and friendly. Willing to give a helping hand when required and give advice about pretty much anything. Rooms were...

Type of place where you can chill out and take it easy. Not the type of place if you're looking for the wild backpackers experience! Manager is easy going. More like a bed and breakfast - without the breakfast. Probably the cleanest backpackers I have stayed at.

The owner (Dan?) is a creep and the place is so dirty and disgusting. He is so rude and the rooms are very dark and the sheets were dirty. The kitchen smells and there wasn't enough cutlery to make food. Don't stay here, it's the worst hostel I ever been to.

My boyfriend and I stayed here while traveling the east coast and is honestly the worst place we stayed during our trip. The hostel itself is very bizarre. There is no reception. You literally have to hang around the common area and wait for the manager to show up to check in or check out! We waited for 40 minutes...

Amazing location within the CBD yet on the quiet side away from the bustle and traffic for a restful sleep. Easy access (~1.5-2km walk) to the quay, botanical gardens and opera house. Excellent value for money and slept comfortably in the private 2-person double bed with private bathroom. Very friendly manager

Came in and stayed 5 nights, the place is cozy, really clean, pretty good location, located downtown. Very close to all of the attractions (Sydney Hardbor bridge, opera house etc.) free wi-fi available here as well, and the price for each night stay is very very reasonable. The manager is very friendly, and occasionally plays a guitar set with the...
