                  Place was a safe haven for roaches and there was a rather large fungal bloom growing on the roof in the bathroom. Other than that it was quite smelly.

                • Group of friends

                  location great. facilities acceptable. pricing excellent.

                  staff unaware that room already paid for prior to booking in. then they mixed the rooms. Room booked was a twin room, staff put us in a double room. Then I had to make calls to my wife for her to sort it out.

                  City Resort Hostel is very convenience to the city of Sydney. There have a gazebo you can take rest and enjoy city view and thalassic view of Sydney.

                  There was a shower in my room as I wouldn't have used communal showers in the hostel. The hostel was within a walking distance to city centre and public transport.

                  There were cockroaches in the room and I had to kill quite a few of them myself. When I checked in I found half a dozen squashed cockroaches on the walls left from the previous occupiers. It appears the hostel staff didn't even bother cleaning them off the wall before letting out the room.There was only one sheet on the bed and no towel provided. By the time I realised it the reception was already closed for the night so I had to wait until the next day. The hostel promised a free shuttle bus from the airport and I wrote them an email asking how to get it. I never got a reply back. It was by sheer fluke that I found it at the airport by asking around as it was not advertised.

                  Very run down. Room door was unlocked when we got back. Not going back there again.

                  4.6

                  Location was good. Central to everything. Single rooms were quite big and good value with private showers attached.

                  Some of the workers including the manager were very unhelpful. Did not meet my requests for items such as clean sheets, a towel and blankets (it was very cold) despite me asking several times.

                  The place

                  Very dirty, very cold only two thin blankets.Very disappointing

                • Single
                  6.2

                  Quite close to top end of Sydney city. General decor a bit dated but room itself was clean. Smoking outside my window annoyed me, but what can you do. Good for price paid

                • Single
                  7.8

                  very friendly and helpful staff

                  I thought I had paid via Booked.net - it should be made clearer that you do not charge credit cards

                  4.6

                  Only 10 minutes' walk to Sydney city centre, & very close to many places of interest such as Sydney Tower, Australian Museum & the Opera House.

                  Too noisy if you stay in the street-side rooms. Reception is only available from 7am to 10pm.

                  I could borrow the fan from reception for the night!

                  Entrance door smashed, kitchen utensils old, dirty, room very stuffy and hot

                  Leaving after one night - and the fact that they did not charge me after my complaint.

                  Filthy, poor service, noisy, I could go on

                  A lotta noise till late saturday night

                  the location was great

                  the smell was gross! and the showers were not very clean. we also reserved a carpark but was unable to get one on arrival.

                • Single
                  7.0

                  Totally quiet - clean bed to sleep on at a very reasonable price.

                  Mouldy ceiling in the bathroom (may be a health hazard, esp in winter months).
