I found the constant announcements over the PA during the evening very invasive and unnecessary. I also found it frustrating having some of the guests drinking and talking nearby my room late at night bloody annoying when trying to sleep. The hostel staff should monitor noise levels after 10.00pm to allow guests the right to peace and privacy to enjoy their stay. On the first night staying there I heard a key turning into my lock of my room door and the door suddenly opened ! I have no idea who the person was and thankfully I wasnt undressed at the time!

Found the room comfortable. Missed not having en suite but facilities close. The staff really friendly. Liked the availability of breakfast for a small fee also an evening meal if required. Would stay again when in Sydney.

Nice European Hostel

Pros: - large common area - central - next to lots of public transport and food - common areas quite clean
Location: - very central - lots of public transport and food
Good place to stay. Convenient and modern. Aimed @ mostly younger travelers say. Sometimes there's too many ppl just lounging around, but I guess that's what large hostels are!

Quite good, even for older travellers.

Pros: Close to trains, which also take travellers direct to the airport. No need to catch taxis etc.
Cons: The cleanliness of the rubbish bin in the ladies bathroom. The outside and lid area was really dirty. I didn't want to open it. Cup of tea cost $3.00!
Location: Close to Sydney Central - good eating places
I booked a private room for myself - comfortable bed and enough space for luggage etc. it was quiet despite lots of young people around. (I was a bit worried about the noise level as I was an older person travelling alone.)

Convenient as so close to Central

It was a no brainer to find, so easy and close to Central, am happy with my choice and my stay as I came with a late afternoon flight and another flight the next morning so it made it bang in - dinner in the CBD - bang out back to airport. Cool staff, cool place.

Would definitely recommend it

Had a better than expected experience here, given what I'd heard about some other hostels in the area. Wasn't too noisy, very clean, nothing to complain about.

Convenient and comfortable

I stayed here for one night so that I could get to the airport in the morning. Very convenient to the airport train. The room was clean, not too noisy and suited my purpose well.
