    Great value for money. The hostel is very well provisioned, just slightly grubby because of it's age. Staff were great. Breakfast was awesome, but could be better organised.

    Lot's of longterm guests so the room was a bit chaotic.

    Close enough to everything and nice tv room Great breakfast! And comfortable beds

    Quite dirty and they seem to just spray sent to cover it up. The kitchen was far to hot and crowded. People living there were quite loud. And breakfast every morning you’d get pestered to buy a tour with the happy company

    The location is one of the many reason why I chose this place; close to the city and to Bondi And have breakfast options also helps a lot when you just arrived to Sydney

    Free breakfast was so good. Also location was easy to go somewhere. Price from internet reservation is so better than offline.

    I was little bit late so check out. i was preparing to check out at that time the Italian female cleaner staff keep telling me you have to go out. And i said yes i know i am doing it now. Several times she was interrupt me to preparing my stuff. And you know what? she make my carrier to stand,,, all the zip was opened i was so upset at that time. And i did check out ASAP , 1 hour later from check out i apology to her "i am sorry i was misunderstood the check out time as 11am because most guest house i visited was mostly 11am was check out".. anyway everything was happened from my late check out. And the Italian female told me you can reconize easily because on your room key, front-desk to notice. On legelly she is so right. But the fuxking Italian girl was so rude. I really do not want to go there neeeeeeever.
