Big hostel is such a good memory of Sydney! The people that works there are so nice and friendly, and you get a lot for your money compared to other hostels in Australia! Very social, fun and clean! The rooms are big and light. The staff always helps you out if you need help with anything, and there is a very good atmosphere! Best hostel in Australia if you ask me:)

Stayed: November 2016, travelled with friends

Very clean, friendly staff, close to everything in the city and has a nice rooftop balcony. I been coming here over the last several years and will always come back. I recommend this hostel to everyone who comes to Sydney.

Room Tip: Avoid level 1 facing Elizabeth St as you get the noise of traffic and trains. Lift too slow? use the stairs to rapidly travel floors

We had a family room for 4 of us over the New Year period at Big Hostel. The facilities were clean and easy to use. We were there in a heat wave but the room was always cool enough to sleep comfortably with a blanket thanks to the air conditioning. Staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was also provided which made mornings easier. Good location, only a 5 minute walk from the closest train station, 10 minutes from the big malls, 20 minutes to Darling Harbour and 30 minute walk from the Circular Quay. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay.

Room Tip: If there are four of you traveling together it is just as cheap to get a private bed and bath as to get dorm beds.

Booked a double room with own toilet and didn't regret it. We were only there for a night but wouldn't mind staying here for quick trips in the city. Although we did not eat brekky in their shared kitchen, it looked pretty clean. The staff were accommodating and the location is just perfect. Totally great value for money!

Great price! Clean room! Quiet! Great roof top space! Lucky the dog is adorable! Elevator a little dodgy! Great location very close to train station and convenience store! 5 min train ride to circular quay, Opera house and Harbour Bridge. Would stay again with my family of 5.
