We stayed a week ago. Apparently it has just been taken over by new management and they seem to be trying to improve it but effectively it was a building site while we stayed and it was still $30 a night for an 8 bed room that was so small it should have been a 4 bed max! There was...

It's ok I suppose and judging from some to the other reviews it has improved. The rooms are small but it's ok if you are in with people you get on with, doesn't leave much floor space for you bags though. Location is good, maybe a 30 minute walk to the harbour. Toilets and showers are about acceptable. They also...

Only stayed here as a last resort over NYE period. The prices are outlandish at this time. First call ahead before check in as they close when they feel like it. I came and had to wait two hours for receptionist to come back from lunch. Then there was no bedding. The place is filthy. 99% work and live here...

The free breakfast was very disappointing literally they just put some loaves of bread in the...

Me and my girlfriend flew from the UK for 27 hours and were meant to be staying here. We checked in and got given sheets etc to make our own beds along with a chipped mug for our tea. We weren't given directions to our room either. When we got there there was a drunk french girl asleep next to...

You could almost miss this hostel walking down the street, but you'd be sorry if you did! This place has an awesome atmosphere, the rooftop is amazing for chilling out during the day and partying during the night, and has staggering views of the city. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and take you out lots so you get...

This is a great hostel for people wishing to enjoy a fun, laid-back, frienly nightlife after a day of sightseeing. The staff was very friendly, kind and helpful. The view from the rooftop was fabulous, the facilities were in great condition and the location is excellent. We will definitely stay here again! Highly Recommend!!!

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighbourhood Profile
Darlinghurst
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
