PReviously I have stayed here and enjoyed it. This time though (9 May '20) the heating thermostat in the room was set at 28 degrees, there was no hot water and I was woken up at 6am by construction work across the street.

Location was excellent! Check-in was very quick and easy. Counter staff was very helpful and even recommended nearby places to look for dinner. The room and ensuite was clean and well-presented.

Beautiful view from the roof, and lso possible to see the opera house from their premium room. Overly clean and quiet for a hostel - strange times the virus is causing. But the bed and air con was not all perfect, and common rooms were quite cold

I stayed 12 days at this hostel and I loved it. the staff is very friendly and helpful. close to circular quay, tram and parks. The evenings at the rooftop with that amazing view. The district The Rocks is my favourite spot. Thank you that you made my stay welcoming and lovely. Doris

The location is epic, there's a whole archeological site under the hostel and the view of the opera house is unbelievable, it's so beautiful :) I loved the eco-friendly approach with the water and the lights in the hostel and the free traveller swap-shelves for books and clothes.

The best location in Sydney, central but quiet :). Stunning view from the rooftop! Very big hostel, but maybe too big to easily socialize.

Great hostel - only marked down as beds are a bit uncomfortable and atmosphere good but not amazing but I imagine this is likely due to Corona Virus as I’ve heard social gatherings at this hostel are usually great!
