    Een super chill hostel om te verblijven! Als reiziger alleen ontmoet je snel nieuwe mensen. Het hostel organiseert meerdere dingen in de avond en ook is er een rooftop waar soms feestjes worden gegeven. Verder heb je geen geluidsoverlast hiervan, na 23.00 uur moet het namelijk stil zijn. Personeel is heel vriendelijk en hulpzaam, vooral de manager is erg chill!

    This hostel is exactly what a hostel should be, low key with heaps of nice people! All the staff is really lovely and are super keen to help you out or just chat with you. All together I’ve stayed here a little over a week and I’d happily come back whenever I’m in Sydney! The location is perfect, close to a train station and if you don’t mind to walk it will take you less than an hour to get to circular quay.

    Just a fine hostel, good location, the general area and washing/toilet area were a bit small but everything pretty much works as it should so it's fine.

    Perfect location. Only went there because I went to a concert and needed a place to crash. It is the kind of : old looking, but you've got the basics hostel. It was okay, not too exciting, you could see that it mostly a party place, but it was sufficient for me to crash for a night

    Positives: the personnel was really friendly and helpful, the location was great and it’s nice that wifi and laundry is free Negatives: the hostel is pretty dirty, there is no real bathroom only some random toilets and showers which have space between the doors and the walls so other people can see through. Also, there is no common area/place to eat except for a random table in the hallway. There is no elevator so you have to walk up 7 stairs with your backpack and my room smelled bad..

    Locatie was top, maar het hostel zelf was in een oud gebouw en deed mij nogal denken aan een vies studentenhuis. Veel mensen wonen permanent in het hostel wat de geur niet ten goede komt. Er is geen airco dus je slaapt met de ramen open, maar heel de nacht zijn er sirenes en stadsgeluiden. Daarnaast erg weinig wc’s voor het aantal mensen dat er slaapt. Staff was erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam.

    Geen gemeenschappelijke ruimte. Bedden kraken heel erg. Heel erg warm in de kamer. Douches heel vies, zelfs beschimmeld. Keuken klein en niet erg schoon.
