Woodduck Boomerang Backpackers Sydney Reviews
Standard Backpackers in the heart of the city Mar 07, 2012
I have stayed at this hostel many many times, the first 5 months I lived in Australia here. It is fantastic for meeting people and is in an excellent location - 10 mins walk to the CBD and 5 mins to Kings Cross bars & nightclubs.
The hostel is on 4 floors and many stairs - great for a workout, not great for older people or people with disabilities.
The dorms range in size from a Double room / 4 share / 6 share / 8 share / 10 share and 12 share. The prices range in Summer from $26-$32 and around $80 for the Double room.
The rooms are not a bad size and are just what you expect for budget accomodation, although the mattresses are slightly thin.
The hostel is probably in need of a good clean in general but they do have cleaners everyday and rubbish is always removed. The kitchen is adequate but needs a bigger and new oven. They have a TV room with Foxtel which is awesome and the rooftop terrace has spectacular views over the City and Harbour Bridge.
The reason I have stayed for over 10 months here is the group and family atmosphere and its great location. The hostel takes people out to bars every night and organises pizza nights and entertainment.
I would definately recommend the hostel to young people travelling alone to meet people but really its a fun place for anyone - just remember it is a budget hostel so dont have unrealistic expectations!
