I spent a short time at the hostel whilst I was in Sydney because I had an early flight in the morning. The reception staff were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Access to the lift and room is via a keycard provided at check-in - so the hostel feels very secure. The hostel is located about 2-3 minutes walk from Central station - take the exit on Eddy Avenue (turn left out of the exit, walk down Eddy Avenue then turn left onto Pitt Street - the hostel is on the opposite side of the road - you can't miss it).
The communal areas are modern, clean and tidy. There is a communal television room and kitchen on the first floor. The television room has a large screen and seating with bean bags and cushions. The adjacent kitchen area is a modern stainless steel kitchen area, the kitchen closes at 10pm.
The reception area has a large circular soft seating area and a large flat screen television showing movies. There are internet terminals at the side of the reception area. Opposite reception there is a kiosk providing local information and careers information.
The room I stayed in was a four-bed dorm. There are lockers provided inside the room which you can use with your own padlock. There are toilets/showers on each floor. Rooms are basic and functional, clean and tidy.
My experience of the hostel is pretty limited because I arrived quite late and left quite early but what I did see was a lively hostel where you can meet great people who are travelling or working in Australia. The hostel has a truly international feel and a great place to meet people. It can be noisy until quite late but most people are doing the same thing and having fun in Sydney so keep it in mind if all you want to do is sleep. I did see a couple of people who had drunk too much and were a little boisterous during the early hours but nothing that wasn't dealt with swiftly by security/reception staff.
I would definately recommend this hostel if you are in Sydney and want to meet new people whilst travelling.
