The best about our hostel?

LOCATION. We are a short walk away from all of the “must-do” destinations in Sydney. You can walk to Sydney Opera House in 25 minute. No joke. Not a fan of walking? No worries! We are right beside three major train stations, Museum, Town Hall, and Central; which will take you where you want to go. We are surrounded by yummy restaurants, night clubs, pubs, and a grocery store right down the street!
GOOD VIBES. We, all of the staff, really want you to have a good time. Our staff are always willing to help in hopes to make your stay a good one! We have weekly “family dinners” and “Hangover Pancakes” at no additional cost, as well as games and activities.

    Nous étions dans une chambre de 8 lits, tout s'est bien passé. Nous avons eu besoin de prolonger notre séjour, Mel à l'accueil à été très serviable et a pu nous prolonger plusieurs nuits. Elle est vraiment drôle, de bons conseils et au top pour répondre à nos nombreuses questions 😅 L'hostel est bien placé, propre, il y a une bonne ambiance avec les autres backpackers. Il y a une grande cuisine avec tout ce dont on a besoin, le supermarché est vraiment proche. Je recommande fortement !! 😀🤗

    Cet hostel est bien situé. Le staff est très sympa et jeune. Les chambres sont propres et confortables. En revanche c'est très très bruyant la nuit à cause de la rue. La cuisine est souvent en bordel et un peu étroite quand on est nombreux. Les parties communes pourraient être mieux nettoyées (vitres, poubelles qui débordent dans les toilettes). Un bon rafraichissement de peinture serait bienvenu mais cen'est pas important pour moi. Si ce n'était pas si bruyant je serais restee plus longtemps.

    Auberge bien décorée avec du personnel très sympathique et à l’écoute. L’auberge est très bien située et des attentions sont présentes. Dommage que certaines règles : hygiène, civisme,... ne soient pas partagées par tous les voyageurs. Aussi, les toilettes et douches sont en nombre insuffisants. Le bruit est très présent : portes qui claquent, eau de la tuyauterie, musique, chaises,... Le wifi ne fonctionne pas dans les chambres. La climatisation serait également la bienvenue.
