Good service Perhaps the noise level from the streets
It's located right next to Central CityRail Station, as well as bus stops, which made for easy trips around the city. Haymarket was within walking distance, too. You could easily hear the noise coming from the hallways, especially from noisy and rude occupants.
The room, the shared toilet and bathroom are very clean. And the bed is very comfortable, big and clean. Even there are enough lockers in the room for all guests. The best backpacker hostel I have seen so far. And the price and location are really good as well. I stayed in a six beds room. It was really hard for me to sleep well, especially there was party in that night. People came in and went out all night long. The door made such noise, including the toilet door.
great location! no toiletries were provided.
One of the best hostels you can go. Clean, well organized, big kitchen, awesome roof terrace, fantastic location and still peaceful enough to have a good night.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, ready to answer any question. The other guests were fabulous and great to talk to :) The internet service was slower than dial-up. I also didn't like having to pay for a towel ($4 + $10 refundable deposit) or to store my bag for an hour or so ($5).Other than that, everything was great.
It was noisy the 1st night with some backpackers who keep slamming their doors throughout the night. The toilet was always occupied in the morning with backpackers queuing to bath. The advantage was it was near the railway and main road, but also means that it is quite noisy.
centrally located and close to central station. handy if catching a plane sqeaky fire door next to room - noisy at night
it was close to where I needed to go. the cleaner was friendly. it was easy to book. hot water in one of the male showers was inconsistant
Location We booked a private room and our bathroom was incredibly dirty and disgusting. The room smelled and was very dirty (including the bed). We changed hostels after the first night.
Cheap, good location. Kitchens too small for the amount of guests, not enough cooking equipment (only one fork!), room was too hot ( warmer than rest of hostel), no permanent member of staff to talk to to get stuff sorted out (when we complained about lack of cutlery all they could do was pass on a message), unfriendly due to layout of the two buildings (couldn't eat in the outdoor area without taking our food out into the street first)
Fairly clean and quiet. One of the cheaper options. Small room, reception apparently opened at 8:00am but I was there waiting until 8:45 for someone to turn up so I could check in. Bathrooms were terrible, one shower wasn't working and one had no lock. Also security card opened two doors (not visible from each other) at the same time (there are two sides to the hostel) so if you entered one door the other would be open for anyone to enter!!
easy access, close to city and on bus routes
Wasn't particularly impressed with anything. First two rooms we were shown were in a really bad state. Very run down and damp. Eventually the third room we were shown was exceptable but not great.
Home backpackers is very affordable and good for the money your paying. I prefer a side to b side although both sides are both good. It's awesome that it's so close to the main city and central I soul definitely stay here again and probably every time I stay in Sydney. The bathroom got quite dirty but I would probably just put that down to dirty backpackers
The best thing about this hotel is the low price, private room options, and proximity to the train station. Although located next to a train station, their name suggests that it's by another station, over a mile away. Also, my room had ants that gradually increased over a few hours. They were full, but they moved me to a dorm room by myself which I appreciated.
No air con
The hotell staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was full of young people creating a great juyful atmosphere.
Convenient location My single room booked over Internet the previous day did not exist when I arrived. You must fix this!
Good location Poor Wi-Fi that by definition disconnects after 3 minutes, Mugs and cups require 1$ deposit. The stuff is not friendly
cheap and close to where we wanted to stay toilets and shower area was unclean. Condoms left in showers!!!!
Very close to Kings Cross Not very helpful staff
i really enjoyed myself while i was there that i couldent stay longer
Free shuttle bus from airport (if you book 2 or more night ;) ) Really clean room and bathroom. A lot of rental car company not too far from hotel.
The staff was wonderful and very helpful. They were always very eager to dispense great advice, book anything we'd need, and were generally great. I was surprised to see that, although the clientele was young, there really wasnt' noise after a certain hour - they were serious about making sure people in the neighborhood and hostel will be able to get some sleep. I would definitely recommend staying there, it's a great and quiet location. I dont' really think the price justified the room we got.
Close to central station, China Town, Paddys Markets - great location. Room + accommodation was basic but clean. Think a bit overpriced for what it was - but then it was Sydney City on a Friday night. Lots of city noises to keep you up late, and wake you up early!!!!
the location only for backpackers
Near to all places were I wanted to go and one of the cleanest hostels I have stayed Can't use wifi in the rooms
I liked the location so close to china town darling harbour and the central train and for a fun night out at the clubs it wasn't far to walk either lots of beltway shops close by great spot come and go as you please (as long as you have the keys) The fact when I asked for a latter checkout time they said it was fine until the next morning when I was told to get my stuff together and get out while I was believing that I had a longer time than they implied
Light in our room did not work and noone fixed it during 3 days of us being there. Also, they should not advertise breakfast being included if it consists of toast + jam + butter provided in a filthy kitchenette room.
