The amenities are tired and grimy. The checking was the most unfriendly experience I have had of checking into a backpackers or similar small accommodation place in 25 years of extensive travel, as a adventure tour guide and private travel across dozens of countries in Asia, Europe, Africa, North & South America and the Middle east. The 'Smart' room locks did not work as advertised w/ numbered code and required an phone app; good luck if your phone goes flat late at night accessing the building, your room or even going to the toilet. The kitchen was ok, the lounge felt like an old teen retreat in a half abandoned room with a half full fish tank sinking the place out. Lots of potential here, but no care taken - reduced traveller numbers due to Covid is no excuse for this lack of service and feel.

I booked a three bedded dorm then it was switched to 4 bedded room with opposite sex stayed in together. I expected a female room mate, well, great. Smh..... Location is amazing, close to tramshed, on main street of the quiet side. Price was great as well.

Unfortunately my experience here wasn’t great. The receptionist didn’t know much and took forever to check in. Simple questions baffled her. Once directed to another building, I walked over to be met with locked doors and absolutely NO signs anywhere on how to get in. The reception area in this building was closed. I went to press the night bell (even though it was 3pm) and guess what!?! The bell has been removed. So I looked at the check in information I was given, nothing. I looked for more signs to tell me how to get in. Nothing. Fortunately another guest was walking past inside and opened the door for me. Then I had NO idea where to go as there were no signs. Oh, sorry. Yes there were. There was about 7 Signs telling you to bring your linen to the reception at check out, but no map, no indication of where to go. I finally found the staircase and climbed up 3 flights and got to my room. (I have a broken back so doing this was painful enough), only to get to my room and the key pass doesn’t work!! I had to call the hotel and tell them I couldn’t get in. I then had to wait 15 mins for someone to come by to give me the “right” key. The room was stuffy and the fan was full of dust, the bathrooms stank and were dirty and the entire building is a echo chamber so when someone opens and closes a door, it is so loud. And they do it ALL night!! Invest in some better soft close doors, educate your staff and for goodness sake, put up a map and a sign so people know where to go!

No where warm to cook eat or sit after 9pm

Cons: Customer care
Location: Great location but Sydney becoming so quiet it's boring Melbourne is full of live music restaurant s open and city night life.
Has potential to be fantastic needs to care about people staying in hostel most hostels the kitchen is open till much later or all night!
