It was a great start of my trip, I arrived at Sydney Airport at around 8:15pm and called the hostel for a FREE shuttle pick up. First shock of the trip, I booked the wrong arriving date, but the girl who answered the phone was lovely and changed my booking straight away. The shuttle goes from the airport every 30mins and its a short journey. The hostel was clean, there's heating in the room, and they provide a blanket(its important because many places in that area actually ask you either for a cash deposit or you have to pay extra for a blanket even when its winter!!), everything needed in the kitchen; pots and pans, cups, cutlery, oil, salt etc.
Most important thing is that the amoshpere was very good in the hostel, theres plenty of common area where you can sit and chat, a nice tv room if you want to borrow a film to play or just watch some tv/sports. People who work there are nice and helpful. they also arrange night outs every night, there was a nice BBQ night and only $5 to fill your tummy!!
only down side is that sometimes the shower is only luke warm when everyones using hot water and internet is quite expensive to use. Overall a good stay!
