Positive Reviews

Very centrally located in a Sydney suburb.

Situated in Newtown's cultural district, this hostel provides a great location for people looking to enjoy the vibrant nightlife and attractions. There is also plenty of shopping within walking distance and a train station which can take people into Sydney proper.

Well appointed, comfortable rooms.

For an accommodation that is considered a budget hostel, the rooms at this property are comfortably furnished. The common areas are also a plus and great for socialising.

Budget hostel provides a good value.

All of a traveller's basic needs are covered at this hostel, and for a really affordable rate. Including a free continental breakfast and equipped communal kitchen add to this property's great value.

Negative Reviews

Walls are too thin.

Sounds carry too much for comfort at this hostel. Most guests will be able to hear their neighbours, which can be a significant issue as the property tends to attract younger and more rowdy travellers.

Hostel is not great with customer service.

Getting a lot out of the staff can be frustrating. The reception area is only open for a limited amount of time each day and not every employee is great about fulfilling requests. Information that is sent out via email at booking also doesn't contain very accurate information, according to reviews.

Shared bathrooms are in rough shape.

All of the bathrooms at this property are shared facilities, and guests comment they are often in poor condition. At least some of the bathrooms are always closed for maintenance, and they aren't as clean as the rest of the property either.
