    Location was fab in the city and good price compared to most. Hostel has the potential to be good with spacious dorm rooms. However in our 3night stay the room was not cleaned at all and it was filthy when we arrived! Beds not cleaned...More

    The hostel is very central and compared to the others it's quite cheap, but the rooms aren't very clean, the common room isn't too big/nice and the kitchen is WAY too small. If you're low on money this is a good option, but if you're...More

    The place was rough. Didn't look like it had been cleaned in weeks. Common room was unwelcoming, no chill-out areas and the kitchen was a joke. Can't imagine 5 people cooking there, never mind 20! And what's the deal with the pillows? Ended up using...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
