Poor 2.0
Poor quality choice
Overall cleanliness of shared facilities i.e bathrooms kitchen spaces was a half star - kitchens not adequately equipped - music system set too loud and songs often on endless loop rooms cold unheated - aircon set point set too low with high volume cold air coming out of registers

Good 6.0
Clean room , hotel location the best .
The YHA is in a great place easy walking distance to central train station the hop on hop off bus China town and darling harbour. I just wish they had family rooms. I paid the extra for breakfast thinking on holidays One less meal worry about I will not do that again the cafe next to the YHA the staff could not cook toast I got warm bread I ended up asking them take it back make it brown. You had get your own tea or coffee and cereal I could have done that in the kitchen at the YHA the place they had set up to help yourself was they storage area and dirty. The staff at the YHA very nice helpful. I have stayed here before and will again. Good price for Sydney.

Great value, location and services
Hostel has an incredible central location and very friendly staff. There is a pool and cinema on site, both free to access for hostel guests. Every day there is a list of sightseeing ideas provided by the hostel staff along, followed by nightlife activities and parties in the evening. The only downside would be that the rooms are noisy and you can hear EVERYTHING that happens on the street, in the corridor or in the room next door. Bring some earplugs if you're a light sleeper.

Great stay
It was a great ideal place to stay in the city, everything in walking distance & friendly staff
Sian, au4 night trip
Very good 8.0
The chain was great, the room was clean with more room than you would expect for a hostel. Lots of street noise. Cars, motorcycles, emergency vehicles, etc. Could be a problem for light sleepers. Didn't use any of the amenities but they were plentiful. Would stay again.
Brett, ca1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
I stayed because of early and late flights. Possibly just know that you are paying for the location and the deals for things like staying long term.
