Location is good and beds aren’t uncomfortable. The bathrooms are clean and private (no one taking a shower at the same time in the same room). People are nice and can leave luggage before and after checkin/out. Bring a lock!!!

Very good location, but the karaoke on the ground floor could be a problem for light sleepers.

Close to everything!

Best location as it's close to shops, restaurants and transportation; a five-minute walk to Sydney Central Station Room was clean so is the toilet and bathroom. Friendliest staff. The only down side is there is no elevator or lift. Good for stay during cold weather.

Like being at home!

Pros: Everything is so clean and is cleaned all the time. Heater, fridge and TV in every room. Extra blankets available and towels replaced every two days.
Cons: More cups and mugs to drink out of in the kitchen.
Location: Capitol Theatre is just across the road and China Town and Central Station, the Light Rail, Paddies Market plus the seconds fashion mall is a block aw
This very cheap inner city inn has everything you could want! It cost us $392 NZ for 3 nights. A fraction of what it costs to stay elsewhere. One floor has huge bathrooms, (though bathrooms are on all floors!) there is a great little kitchen, living room and laundry on site.

Excellent for the price!

Pros: Really cannot fault it for the price we paid.
Cons: Air fresheners in the bathrooms perhaps? Though for shared bathrooms they were fantastic!
Location: The pub next door does excellent meals!
Excellent little hostel to stay at - especially for the price. Staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming, room was spotless upon our arrival.
