We stayed 4 nights in a mixed ensuite dorm for 4 persons, two sets of bunk beds. The room and bath were very clean, had a window that opened, and great A/C that could be adjusted according to preference. There was small side table between bunks, metal cabinet with 4 storage areas that could be locked, portable "closet" with hangers for hanging clothes up, and 4-tiered shelf for other belongings. Bed was comfortable, sheets nicely ironed and crisp, pillow ok, and 3-piece bathroom: toilet, sink, shower, all spotless. No reading lights for each bed!
Kitchen was large, fully equipped. Breakfast, 4-5 kinds of dry cereals and white/wholewheat
breads for toast. Milk, peanut butter, assorted jams, and margarine provided. Staff was fantastic! So helpful, so knowledgeable, so friendly. The best I've encountered in a hostel.
Large libary of paperbacks for swap, selection of movies, large flat-screen TV, picnic tables
for eating, well-worn couches for lounging. Laundry for $3 to wash and $3 to dry, plus $1 for
soap. Luggage storage area. Elevator. First floor common areas could use new paint in brighter colors...quite drab as it is. Definitely would stay again when in Sydney. Fantastic value for the money!
