I stayed in this hostel for 4 months and really felt like home. The owners are extremely nice and very helpful, the location is amazing and all the facilities were well maintained. In comparison with other hostels the price was super cheap and it's definitely worth it. Thank you guys from Alfred Park, I'll be back :)

We arrived early in the morning around 10.30 am. Just a quick walk from central station (cut through the park), in terms of location it is pretty ideal. However, the accomodation itself was disguting.
Crumbling, weathered and dirty exterior makes this look more like a sharehouse then budget accommodation. There was moisture stains all over the carpet in the entrance, peeling back from the walls. The lady at reception was nice enough, and said that we we could go and put our things up in the room which we had reserved.

Turns out, that the room had yet to be cleaned from the previous guests. Paying 40+ a night for a twin (worked out at around 90 bucks for the two of us) I would expect something clean and neat.
What we got was disgusting. After you navigate your way around the dipalidated corridors (mind thepeeling carpet again - and watch the leaking bathroom which were supposedly renovated recently), the room was roughly 3x3, with beds that were neither made up, nor had been cleaned after the previous occupants had left. Combined with the condoms in the bin (again, not cleaned) this was not what we expected. The curtains were filthy, and the room smelled of old cigarette smoke along with something something which I would rather not identify.
We had booked into a room which supposedly had shared facilities. However, the room we received actually did have an en suite attatched. However, a quick glance in showed that the toilet had been blocked and the mold growing here would soon be approaching sentience.
We decided that we would try and find someplace else, so we went to explore other options in the area, letting the lady at the desk know that the room hadn't been cleaned. (not mentioning that we weren't planning to stay in case there was no other accomodation available). Two hours later, we returned to grab our bags. There was what looked like a mother and two daughters smoking in the reception area when we quickly dashed inside to run to the room. The room still hadn't been cleaned. So we picked up our bags, carried them down the stairs (no elevators here!) and ran out. The receptionist was on the phone at the time, so I simply deposited the keys on the bench and left.

Never, ever, EVER again.

I liked the location, a short walk through the beautiful park to central station, the transport hub of Sydney. The room was clean, we had shared bathroom but it was always available to us. Free wireless internet for us. Overall very positive experience.

We actually stayed here in December then came back in January because the place was great value for money.

Its located 10 minute walk from Central Station (Train and bus) and it's a nice walk through the park to get there. The place itself does look a little rundown from the outside and the shared outside areas could do with a bit of a refurb but the shared bathrooms are brand new and very clean.

The 4 bed dorms are well kept. We stayed in one en-suite 4 bed dorm and one shared 3 bed dorm, both were comfy and clean. The rooms also had a fridge and a small TV in. The kitchen could get a bit crowded and if people don't wash up after themselves it gets dirty but it's generally well equipped.

I would recommend it because its cheap for Sydney and there's a free bus that goes into the circle quay from the Central Station.
