Beast deal in Sydney! Free internet and free late check-out anywhere else is unheard of. The location is perfect. The Service was excellent. Most friendliest and helpful staff in Sydney. Recommend this to anyone staying in Sydney.

Had my first stay in Easy Go Backpackers (EGB) for 3 nights staying in a 8 bedded female dorm after read the reviews on TripAdvisor. It never disappointed me. It was a good place to stay. People in the room were nice and friendly. EGB is located near the China town and within walking distance to the central station.It took me about 5 mins to go to the central station from EGB. The kitchen is at the different level which you need to take the lift to reach it but it is not a big problem. The things I like in EGB is the 24hours CCTV & reception service , cleanness and you will be given an access card to scan the door when you enter to the building and the room where you stayed. Therefore, it's very safe if you are female travelling alone. I would recommend you to stay in the female dorm, it's 3 dollar extra compare to the mix dorm with 10 bedded but it's worthy. The toilets are clean which is quite important for me. In addition, the staffs there are very helpful. If you are new in Sydney, you can ask the staffs for the information, they are happy to help, as well as the people staying there. The only thing I don't like is the the the lift, it is old and you need to slide the first door manually when you get into the lift which is a bit heavy for me. However, you will still get someone staying there to help if you are lucky. Not a big deal though. The only cons for EGB is they don't do online reservation, so you need to call for booking. Overall, it's a good accommodation which provided the basic stuffs that you need. I'm not sure about the others but this place is at a good location and safe to stay. Highly recommended. I would pay my stay for the next time.

Convenient short walk to Central station, Darling Harbour and Chinatown. The lift wasn't working during my stay. Bathrooms are good, showers never ran out of hot water and cleaned everyday. But only 1 for each sex on each floor - wasn't too much hassle. Bunks are standard, linen is clean, towels provided free. Rooms are spacious with ceiling fan, but with lax enforcement, tidiness is dependent on the people staying there. Free wifi, but couldn't connect with my phone. Found most staff helpful. If u like meeting people and don't mind 8-10 bed dorms, then EGB is a very good choice.

Room Tip: rooms with windows on George St are a bit noisier with the traffic. ask for 1st floor if have heavy...

Easy Go Backpackers (EGB) has everything you need: an excellent location at a fair price. Clean, good bathrooms (in every floor), neat kitchen, tv room, internet. Really, it is the best. I stayed at this hostel after a really bad experience at a different hostel. Although I had to pay $5 more for night, it was so worth it. It's located on George Street, one of the main streets of Sydney's CBD. So transportation at door, although for many things you can just walk from there, it's safe and staff is friendly. Great experience at the EGB! I would recommend it!

Nice place to stay also the staff r friendly.not include the old elevator it's not too good to be used so I rather use the stair.my room is clean and tidy a bit messy from other room mates but it's fine.small kitchen always busy to avoid peak time would be better.some couches r too old and unuseful better be changed.
