Our family found the Big Hostel great value accommodation. Clean, simple and functional for a trip to Sydney. Can't wait until tram line commissioned to SGC from nearby Central Station. Breakfast included and great that we could cater for ourselves in the communal kitchen.

Downside - mould in the bathroom grout, but stayed in 5 star places in Sydney with the same. at the price per room I didn't care.

Stayed: April 2018

The location was central and good but the room was not really clean and there was a stop in the sink. The free wifi in the lounge was good although it was sluggish when many were in at the same time. Simple accommodation.

Goor breakfast organised everymorning. Four types of cereals and all types of breads.
Good atmostphere at hostel all the time. Kitchen facility is 24 hours which is great for backpackers.

The big hostel offers everything you need, a brilliant location directly at central station, a filling breakfast, friendly staff and suitable dorm rooms. Highly recommended especially for backpackers!

We just stayed for one night in Big Hostel. Not amazingly clean. But spacious, welcoming, and the rooftop is a nice touch. Quite pricey, however to be expected due to the great location in Sydney city Center.
