    Worst hostel in Sydney

    I've stayed at a few hostels in Sydney and honestly this was the most disappointing one. Two nights I couldn't sleep because of the noise outside and once I saw a cockroach on my bed before I was about to go to sleep.

    The staff were rude and the service as bad

    I have stayed at several hostels in Australia and this one was the worst one. The staff were rude and not too helpful. I didn't expect great service at that price but they were just very poor. I won't be staying there again. There are better hostels in Sydney

    Not clean and felt dirty

    The bed had some stains on it. It didn't look like they washed the bed covers. I've stayed at a lot of hostels and this one was the most unclean. The pictures on their website made it look so clean but it wasn't.
