Good Location, thats it

It's the kind of hostel that feels like you've accidentally walked into someone's home. Except this person has taken no pride in their home and is kind of annoyed that you've turned up. Staff on arrival were unhelpful and moody and most staff were more intent on explain how many hours they'd been working rather than helping. There was a fight in the kitchen on one night which resulted in the police being called. The location, however, was fantastic and the price was right for being such a comfortable walk to circular harbour. (i also saw a different room which was much nicer than mine, perhaps i was unlucky). This place is probably more appropriate for people intending to stay in Sydney long term.

Terrible, not clean, lost my money. Don't go there

In addition, I had to leave one day before my check out time and they did not give my money back and charged me 20 AUD more cause I was late for check out time! So I lost 20 AUD+ 1 day.

Worse stay I ever have!

The p hostel is very old, dirty and untidy. I am very surprised that there is a so bad quality hostel in Sydney. Especially the bathroom, the shower rooms are small, the water is weak and sometime has no hot water. If you are a traveller, pay a bit more per night to enjoy your trip!

Disgusting. Don't bother unless you are desperate.

Posted Aug 7, 2013
Pros: One of the staff members was excellent and super informative and friendly. Remember I said one. The other was so clueless.
Cons: Ummm, joining the 21st century? Cleaning?
Location: Nada.
There's no Wi-Fi. Need I say more. You can't even purchase it. They are living in the Stone Age. Talk about inconvenience. The only reason I booked here was that I needed a single room for cheap and booked too late for other hostels and was in a hurry. My dream would have been to stay at the YHA Rocks. I didn't realize what a dump this place was and the no Wii-Fi is unreal. The common areas and bathrooms are disgusting. Plus it's out of the way of everything. There is no bus that takes you there. You will have a 15-20 min walk home every night regardless where you are. Good luck!
