This hostel is in a superb location just a few minutes walk to the busy area of Sydney. Lovely and clean, a super kitchen area and the most amazing views from the roof terrace. Everyone seemed so friendly and we had a great 5 nights here. Pizzas at The Australian are wonderful and also close to other many pubs/cafes so an easy crawl home!
