Wasn't particularly impressed with anything.
First two rooms we were shown were in a really bad state. Very run down and damp. Eventually the third room we were shown was exceptable but not great.
We booked a private room and our bathroom was incredibly dirty and disgusting. The room smelled and was very dirty (including the bed). We changed hostels after the first night.
Home backpackers is very affordable and good for the money your paying. I prefer a side to b side although both sides are both good. It's awesome that it's so close to the main city and central I soul definitely stay here again and probably every time I stay in Sydney.
The bathroom got quite dirty but I would probably just put that down to dirty backpackers
easy access, close to city and on bus routes
Cheap, good location.
Kitchens too small for the amount of guests, not enough cooking equipment (only one fork!), room was too hot ( warmer than rest of hostel), no permanent member of staff to talk to to get stuff sorted out (when we complained about lack of cutlery all they could do was pass on a message), unfriendly due to layout of the two buildings (couldn't eat in the outdoor area without taking our food out into the street first)
it was close to where I needed to go. the cleaner was friendly. it was easy to book.
hot water in one of the male showers was inconsistant
centrally located and close to central station. handy if catching a plane
sqeaky fire door next to room - noisy at night
Fairly clean and quiet. One of the cheaper options.
Small room, reception apparently opened at 8:00am but I was there waiting until 8:45 for someone to turn up so I could check in. Bathrooms were terrible, one shower wasn't working and one had no lock. Also security card opened two doors (not visible from each other) at the same time (there are two sides to the hostel) so if you entered one door the other would be open for anyone to enter!!
It was noisy the 1st night with some backpackers who keep slamming their doors throughout the night. The toilet was always occupied in the morning with backpackers queuing to bath. The advantage was it was near the railway and main road, but also means that it is quite noisy.
