    It is an older, smaller building; so don't expect a modern, spacious spotless place. But the 4 bed dorm I stayed in for 1 night was fine. Mattress and pillows clean and comfortable. Adequate kitchen; free brekky (cereal, spread, toast, tea, coffee) was good. Nice, friendly, helpful guy at reception. Easy access to city and Eastern beaches, or just walk to Oxford St. Perfect for SCG, football stadium and Hordern Pavillion events. I paid $26 for my bed, so seriously, how could you complain?

    I expected for the cheap price a dirty party place but turned out that the place was actually pretty clean, the staff very nice and friendly and all un total, I liked staying there. Internet connection was good as well - depending on the time you used it. Would definitely go back there. Nice rooftop! As far as I saw, they cleaned in the morning and evening and the bathrooms were pretty clean cinsisering that it was shared with all gender. Really nice, cheap place. :)

    The Clover Backpackers was adequate. If what you want is a place to sleep, this is yours. The rooms are clean, though I wouldn’t shower barefoot; the staff are absolutely lovely. There is not the “hostel spirit” is come to expect from my travels, without nightly events or daily activities. It seems a waste to be so close to Oxford St and not make the most of it. The place is well lit and well-enough kept. The location is beyond reproach. The bistro downstairs is lovely and very cheap. The beds are clean but have thin mattresses, and the frames creak. All doors have locks, but the lockers in my room did not close. Overall, adequate. Consider it a budget option. Don’t ask for much more than a place to sleep and brekkie included.
