Good location coming from the airport, close to central station.
Rooms are not bad. But toilets facilities are insufficient and not very clean. If you are in the top floor...you nees to go 2floors down for the nearest wc. Also...wifi dowa not seem to work there.
Free breakfast is a plus!

This place is terrible. The communal bathrooms are disgusting. I was grossed out by vomit in 2 out of the 4 one evening. Even when we didn't have to deal with that, the bathrooms were still just very dirty with moldy walls and wet toilet paper everywhere and lots of trash, including empty beer bottles strewn about each morning. Our room was like a cell, 2 cots and an exposed light bulb. If possible, stay anywhere else.

Close to Central station. Friendly staff. Free wi-fi for first 24 hrs, 3$ per day if you want more. Dirty carpets and it smelled moldy. Had my own bathroom which was moldy and not so clean. Dirty towels so bring your own. A bit scary at times because when someone went to the room next door it felt like they were coming into my room.

Room Tip: Bring your own towels

The hostel is one of the better ones in Sydney area. It's a fairly close walk to Central station (10 minutes) but isn't considered a close walk to the CBD at all. When you try to tell friends it is in Surry Hills/Redfern they all think it's very far away from everything. There is free breakfast which is really nice, choice of 3 cereals and toast with butter/PB/or hazelnut spread; not bad at all. There are no lockers in the room, only coin operated lockers in the hallway or a food pantry with locks in the dining area. Not a very social hostel either. I stayed in the ensuite and loved that the room had its own shower and toilet however it didn't always get cleaned every day. And the deep cleaning that they state would happen twice a week: well if there were bags around the floor they would just vacuum around them, meaning sometimes rooms were never really cleaned. Worst thing was: WiFi wasn't free, $3 for 24 hour or 500MB. Total money grab. If they fixed those issues the place would be awesome

Room with ensuite was good. Could have done with a vacuum. Beds were OK but too soft. Breakfast was OK - plenty to eat but not a lot of variety- cereal, toast and spreads but no VEGEMITE - needed it to educate all the O/S visitors. I have rated as Average but Good would have been closer - just not Very Good
