    This hostel is in the most wonderful location at The Rocks, within easy walking distance to public transport and Circular Quay/The Opera House. What foresight to build this lovely complex here, especially over "The Dig" which gives a look into past ...

    I always stay here when in Sydney! Great location, price, facilities and best view of Sydney :)

    Mara P. (April 2014)

    Like a new hotel with great facilities and perfect location for attractions and fun exploring older historical area. View rooms are not as good as photos from roof, but worth the sunrise over the harbor.

    Wonderful stay, the 2nd time for some of the clan. Monday morning dig tour definitely the highlight of our entire stay in Sydney,thanks Alison. The interest you generated kept our 13 year old and us going for another 11 museums! We had a Nana join us...

    Staff told it was ok to walk from circular quay station, but it was A little tricky/scary for a girl alone arriving at 23:00 (everything worked well) but other than that it is one of the best hostels i have ever stayed
