The lady at the desk was a sweetheart and she seemed to be there 24 hours at a time. But I just felt so dirty there, the carpets were ruined. Bugs were under the cushions in the tv room. It was just gross.

We were in town for an interview and standardized testing. Being students, budget was key and a good night's sleep. The minute we walked in the room we regretted it. Their picture looks great, but the actual room looks nothing like it. Picture creaking floor boards, dusty carpets, a doona stained with what we're hoping is food. A shower with duct tape on the tiles and a shower head held up with string to keep it from falling over. The only good thing about it was that the bed sheets were clean, there were no bugs. But for 10-20 dollars more, we could have stayed at a much nicer hostel (Bounce Hotel, YHA, Wake-up or Hotel Ibis) all in central Sydney. We'd both stayed at those other places before and they were amazing, they were clean, renovated or new and quiet. Right, the walls were also thin at Home Backpackers, it was noisy. There was loud music coming from somewhere in the building and people chatting in the halls until 4 am. For a place slightly cheaper than other backpackers it was ridiculous. Stay at your own risk, avoid being as stingy as we were.

My wife and I had only two full days in Sydney and did not want to spend an extravagant hotel to crash. The place is good enough. Could be cleaner though. There were little cockroches I have observe also.
