Sander By far my favorite hostel in Sydney, I return here every chance I get. The very best part about this hostel is its location in glorious Glebe, a very welcoming and almost bohemian feeling neighbourhood, with the atmosphere of a small village, yet a mere 20 minute walk / 10 minute bus ride (15 in rush hour) away from central station (take bus 431, and ride it to its next to last stop; you'll know you're there when everyone else has gotten off the bus). Glebe Point Road is lined with awesome bakeries, cafes, used bookstores and restaurants, perfect for spending a lazy afternoon. The hostel itself has good atmosphere, and features an awesome rooftop terrace with lazy hammocks (only in summer) and frequent barbecues. Its rooms are clean, the kitchen large and okayishly equipped (has been better), and the bathrooms are decent (although only just; they could definitely stand being improved upon). I don't care much for its TV lounge either, but with the rooftop terrace, I've never felt the need to hang out there anyway. Highly recommended.
emma.mcfad There needed to be more of a "welcome" note in the room telling people who stayed in the rooms about the facilities.
petchy111 The hostel staff were very friendly and helpful with our stay and with additional information about the area. The room was clean and comfortable but it did not have air conditioning which made the room a little hot. The kitchen and eating area were nice and there was a good atmosphere. I would recommend it as a place to stay in Sydney.
rachelle86 No lockers they will not store you laptop in the safe. Kitchen dirty intended to stay a couple of weeks got out after one night. The linen i recieved was old and threadbare. Its also not as close to the city as they make it out to be its actually a 30-45 min walk. Pretty expensive hostel for what it is. Bus is out the front but $3 to city each way which would add up. Staff were unhelpful but other guests were nice alot seem to be long term. Internet very expensive.

juliod great hostel, rather for grown-ups, very clean, quiet, everything you need. Only TVs in the room can be a bit annoying if your roommate watches constantly. Would def always return to the lodge.

rem282 This was the first hostel I stayed in, in Australia. I'm glad b/c I didn't have any others to compare it to and realize the difference. It wasn't really good, nor was it really bad. The rooms were standard and clean. The common areas like the kitchen and bathrooms were pretty messy and in need of a remodel. As for the service, Val (the manager?) was pretty knowledgeable on the city and transportation. The problem was that he always seemed too busy help you with any of your questions or issues. It also felt pretty far from downtown Sydney and I ended up doing a lot of walking. The one nice thing is that they did offer free pickup from the airport with a 3 night stay.
