    Everyone at the hostel is really great! Staff and guests are friendly. Lots of activities like pub crawl, Soda Factory and family dinner. Cozy hostel right in the middle of CBD. Taylor is a legend and so is CJ.

    Sanitaires à l’ancienne mais très propre. Les pièces sont très bien insonorisées. L’auberge est idéalement située dans Sydney. La cuisine est propre est équipée même s’il manque de place pour manger ! En revanche le wifi est très médiocre, il saute sans arrêt (même s’il y’a 5 wifi différents dans l’auberge, aucun ne marche régulièrement). Les lits bougent beaucoup mais cela n’empêche pas de dormir. Manque de rangements dans les chambres. Dans l’ensemble, l’auberge est satisfaisante.

    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.
