“Good location but bad party noise”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Stayed 2nights here in Nov.'13. Room was ok. Good things were the location and a kitchen on each floor. The shared bathrooms & toilets were cleaned. The Saturday night we were in, there was a loud, noisy party at the check-in area downstair till 3am.Terrible! No sleep!! Bring your own towel as there is charge for them!

We had a double room with shared bathroom. Spacious room and clean, great kitchen facilities. The only thing we missed was some changing space inside the showers and a lock not to let anybody enter.
Generally speaking is worth the price. It's 15 minutes walk to most popular places.

We arrived an hour before the check in time, payed the full price of the 2 rooms and got into one of the rooms, because that was ready. We changed and went to the Opera House for a concert. We got back to the hotel after 9 pm and wanted to get into the second room but we discovered it was never cleaned, it was all dirty with used bed sheet. We went down to reception where one guy – heavily drunk - was around but he ignored us. My husband went to the back of the building to find the receptionist. As the first (drunk) guy heard our concern he got aggressive, saying all rooms have been cleaned and he wanted to see it himself to see it was really undone. As he saw we were not making such a story up (why would we?), he said he will clean the room. Then he disappeared and another 10 minutes
later we started to look for him. No one at reception knew where he went, so the receptionist came up, said he will fix the room but he went also missing. We kept waiting but finally went down again to get the third person who finally cleaned the room in 20 other minutes. (we got in there at around 9.45) Before the 3rd guy came we were about to ask our money back to leave and go elsewhere. But that person apologised and offered a 15% refund to my husband. We never asked for this, he offered it himself.

Next morning the drunk guy was at the reception, still not too sober (could hardly speak), in extremely dirty shirt, being quite arrogant. As we asked about the refund he said there is no refund, he is the boss here (I honestly doubt he even finished elementary) and we used the room so we should not get any money back, also what do we expect for 80AUD. (Well I think a clean room to sleep in 7 hours after check in time, 8 hours after payment is a fair expectation). Anyway it was obvious that this guy is not on the level to have discussions with, so we left the luggage behind as we went for a sightseeing.

When picking up the luggage, Eric was there again who confirmed the refund but said he had issues with the computer. And he disappeared again. Since we had to catch the flight, we had to leave, but it was obvious that they just don’t want to keep their promise.

This accommodation was the worst experience ever: further to the extremely unprofessional and arrogant “customer service” the bathrooms were dirty, the man toilets were not working on any of the levels and the people in charge kept lying into our faces.

Do yourself a favour and avoid this place!

Arrived here at 8 in the morning, and was a little confused, as we could'nt find the reception. Looking further we located it behind a closed door, with the lights out, with no indications as to when it would be open. We left the hostel with our suitcases and came back at about 11 o'clock, and were pleased to see the lights were on and reception open. Even though check-in wasnt til 14.00, we were allowed to go to our rooms, which after endless hours of travel made us very happy. The lift was (still) broken, so we had to carry our luggage up the stairs, but the receptionist kindly offered to help.

The rooms were minimalistic, which I had no problems with. If anything, I missed a mirror. The beds were a little hard, but I found them comfortable, also pleased with the pillow and duvet. The bathrooms were located at the end of the hall, and were quite clean. The showers could have done with somewhere to hang your towel and clothes, as well as a shelf for shampoo etc. The shower head was kind of loose and because of that it was too low (this could easily have been fixed by tightening a few bolts). Kitchen and laundry room were good, and the lounge are was ok too.

The most annoying thing I encountered was the unstable internet connection, which drove me completely crazy. So if a stable internet connection is important to you, maybe think twice about booking.

I would'nt mind staying here again, and if the internet issue got fixed I would have given it 4 out of 5.

I was quite disappointed with this place.
We arrived for check in, and this place had a receptionist who was new on the job. He was very unfriendly and didnt even show us to our room!

The lift was NOT working at all so we had to drag our heavy luggage up the stairs on our own to the 3rd floor.
Receptionist didnt even offer any help, even after seeing that we needed help to carry the luggages up.

After all that hard work, to our horror, our room was not made, carpet was dirty, newspaper left from previous occupant, and messy bed sheets greeted us. Worse, we actually though there was a bathroom in the room but no, there wasn't.

so we went down again to the receptionist, requesting for a room change to one with ensuite bathroom but he said the place was fully booked. then he asked a staff to clean up our room and we had to waste about 15-20 minutes to wait.

Bathroom only had 2 sinks (only 2 sink?!) for the entire level, so in the morning, u had to wait and queue to use the sink :S
NO television in room either, entire room looks dull and the lift was never fixed the entire time i was there.

the only good thing is that this place is very near king's wharf and darling harbour, abt 5 minutes walk away.

We stayed for one night (Sat). I had originally booked online $80 for a private double room with shared bathroom, but received a call two days before we arrived asking if we wanted to pay an extra $20 and have a private bathroom. I accepted.

When we arrived at 4pm we had to be buzzed in. The reception guy was pleasant. He gave us directions to our room, instructions for using our swipe-card for building entry, and also told us there was a kitchen on our floor that we were welcome to use.

We were in room 4b at the back of the hostel. Unfortunately the lift was broken; luckily we didn't have much luggage as we had to climb a lot of stairs.

Our room was pretty clean, as was the ensuite. The shower stall was tiny and had no curtain, very odd. The room was rather spartan but much bigger than I expected and even had a bar fridge. The bed was a bit hard but we slept well. There was plenty of open shelves and cupboards for storage if you had a lot of gear. The windows opened so you could get fresh air. No views, but wasn't too noisy even with a pub across the road.

The location is good, and there is a 7-11 a block away. Winyard station is a 6-7 minute walk. In the 4th floor common area there was a kitchen, 6-seater table and 5 lounge chairs.

I'd probably stay here again, it's hard to find cheap inner-city accom in Sydney.

This is a hostel with small rooms on several floors, like a hotel. So you only share with one other person and the bathrooms are down the hall. I was not given a towel, but I didn't ask for one either. It's as plain as could be, with grey carpet and white walls and sheets, not a lick of decorations anywhere. Wide open common spaces without furniture, but a TV on one floor at least. Kitchenettes on each floor for common usage. And, it's darn inexpensive for what you get: a semiprivate room in the middle of the business district! The front desk is not open 24/7, and I agree with some other posters that they are not the most responsive or efficient. However, they were at least always friendly. Just know that you won't get information from them or any extra services. This place fit my needs perfectly, and had space when everything else was sold out (big weekend in Sydney). I had the room to myself two out of three nights, and for under $40, that's a steal. It's a utilitarian place, quiet and boring, and right in the middle of town.
