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.

Pros: Located right next door to Central Railway Station, and adjacent to other transport options
Cons: Rooms were too hot, even more so if it rained
Easy walking distance to most of the Inner City areas
