Casa Central Accommodation
Ranked #19 of 150 Speciality Lodging in Sydney
Reviewed 24 March 2014

We stayed at Casa for one night (our last night) in January. We chose it because of its proximity to the train station and the ease of getting to/from the airport (it's about a 5 min walk).
We arrived before our room was ready, so we were allowed to leave our bags in their lockers. The staff was nice and accommodating.
The kitchen is fairly spacious - there is a big fridge, and lots of dishes and space to cook. The living room/sitting area is a good size too, it has a communal computer and a TV.
Our room was on the third floor, facing the street, so it was quite noisy, but nothing some earplugs wouldn't fix. The room was very very small, but we didn't really need much more space (one double bed and an armoir). The room was clean enough, and the bedding was ok. No complaints there.
The only thing that was kind of bothersome is the cleanliness of the shared bathrooms. Anytime I'd go in there it was dirty and had hairs on the floor (why can't people also clean after themselves?).
The location of the hostel is pretty good - it's walking distance to many pubs and restaurants, as well as a grocery store, and one can easily walk from here to the Harbour and the Opera House (about 25 min or so)
Other than this, this hostel was ok for the price.

This is a great little hostel if you want a more chilled hostel experience. It feels like a home and this is helped by the friendly staff especially the Italian girl who pretty much runs the place (Kim). Asides from being amazing at her job Kim also happens to have the best speaking voice iv ever heard. The cleanliness of the rooms and things are good and this is mainly down to another Italian girl called Gloria. She is also very nice. Overall very good experience and I would recommend.

Room Tip: you will be lucky to get a room. Biggest downfall of the hostel.

Hallo,
I've just stayed here for 1 night. But I'm happy with my choice :)
Nice staff, clean hostel.
Only the dunna's were too thick for the Australian weather ;) and I've missed a mossy fence.

Groetjes uit Nederland,

So i just spent two nights at this hostel. I thought, on arrival, that the entrance looked a bit weird..judging from the direct flight of stairs...but when you get in, the place looks and feels like a home ! it doesn't feel like a hostel. In the first 5 minutes of my getting there, i had already met around 4 people ! Real homely feel and real friendly people !.

The bathrooms and toilets were sparkling cleaned everyday. but the problem i would say, were the people, who would not take their hair out of the shower with them...so the place looked a bit dirty after a while....If you stay here, i would recommend staying on the 2nd floor...the bathrooms were much cleaner here.

To summarize, this hostel is really really good, even though everything is not perfect. It is good because :

It is kept clean
it is so close to the city, literally 3minute walk to central station
The kitchen has an oven and has REAL FREE FOOD
The manager Kim, works very hard to make sure the hostel looks good
And most of all, THE FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE in this hostel IS AMAZING !!! I have stayed at hostels where no-one was talking to the other...so i know how it feels.

The bad points though..

the thing i really did not like, was having the toilet in the same space as the shower...you could literally hear someone using it, while you were showering...and you had the smells too from the toilet...so i didn't like that.

Also the noise was bearable, but my room gave onto a street where motorcycles passed from time to time..so don't forget to bring your ear plugs ! They helped me.

The rooms had squeaky beds, so every time i turned or another person in the dorm moved, we could hear it...but i do think its not hell on earth !

Very grateful for the atmosphere, and will surely consider staying here again if i come back to sydney !

Room Tip: Choose a room on the second floor..the showers looked a lot cleaner there.

I have stayed at Casa Central for 6 months - with a brief spell when I moved out over Christmas. It is a great option for slightly more mature backpackers. At 28, I did not want to be in a hostel full of 18-20 year olds. The age range is probably 23-35 ish but older travellers also regularly stay here. There are lots of long term guests who work so evenings are usually quiet, especially mid week.
The fact that it is a smaller hostel means it is much easier to get to know people. The option for the 2 bed dorm is great. There is only 1 bathroom on each floor, the 2nd floor is just one shower and one toilet however this has never been a problem.
The staff are great, very friendly and accommodating to everyone. Ask who the Wombat is so you can hear 'the rap' - it's the best.
The only issue I have with Casa Central is the internet connection. It is far too slow.
As a travel agent I will definitely be recommending this hostel without hesitation to my customers around the world.

Services are really excellent here. All amenities mentioned online are true. This hostel is located in central of CBD and near to Railway, Bus, Tram which are Excellent. Cost of stay is nominal and at par with services, and amenities offered here. Have to mention the staffs here are way too motivated and have excellent hospitality I have ever seen.

Special Thanks to staff Kim, Amanda, Andrew. Well done !!!
Your works definitely deserves Appreciation and Encouragement.

Thanks again Casa Central Team !!!
