    the only „+” for the localisation and quite friendly stuff.

    it looks great on photos, but in reality… in room not even one hook to hang a towel or a hanger for clothes (and towels on deposit only). and please, don’t call this thing „breakfast”- poor toast bread, margarine in a box, jam, cereals and UHT milk. and you have to pay deposit to have a cup to make yourself coffee… it was loud at night, lot of people stoned.

    The hostel was clean and the bathrooms and bedrooms were spacious and well maintained. Close to St James train station. Staff are really friendly and helpful.

    There is no air on or ventilation in the rooms so it became really hot and stuffy over night even with a small fan. The cleaners will block off areas when they’re cleaning(fair enough) but they clean at peak times I.e. 9am for the bathrooms which makes it hard to get ready in the mornings. The area is not the best and I actual felt unsafe at some times as it’s a fairly rough part of Sydney which we didn’t realise until we got there- I wouldn’t have been comfortable alone. You also had to pay for everything a $1 payment for a cup etc. If you haven’t got your own it could be a bit annoying.
