Great location, great place and easy to deal with staff. Only downside is the room to shared toilet/bathroom ratio, but not too hard to deal with!!

It is a very pretty place to stay. The en-suite was very comfortable and the balcony was so nice. It was a safe place to stay and the staff was very welcoming.

Newtown hostel

Pros: Its location, its cleanliness, the pool and the pool surrounds.
Location: The hostel is close to King Street, Newtown, where there are many restaurants, a Dendy Cinema and excellent shops. There is a park nearby.
The hostel is all I required for my short stay in Sydney: close to family in Newtown and close to the train station. The shared bathroom was clean with bath mats and hand towels supplied, as well as individual towels and soap for guests. The kitchen facilities were also clean with a jug for making tea/coffee, a stove, a fridge and crockery and cutlery. The only [small] criticism would be that the remote control for the TV didn't work (probably needed new batteries).

Great location & comfortable family room

Considering this is a hostel for backbackers it also manages to meet expectations of a motel. Staff are very helpful, room comfortable with daily towel change and bins emptying. So close to public transport, cheap eats and city.
