Great location, not for everyone ”

So close to the train station and great location. Neighborhood gets a little noisy on the weekends, and there are strip clubs across the street. I did not mind this at all, but I know some people would. I stayed in the summer and there was no a/c but there was a really good fan. I had a great time there and felt very safe!

This is a red light district”

near to train station, convenient store & restaurant

It locates within 3 mins of walking distance from train station, and located exactly in the red light district. Feel annoying when we walked back to hostel during night time, as those security guards from pubs trying to pull you into pubs although we said no. Strongly not recommended for female traveller, if you are not into night life. Would suggest backpackers near to central or town hall train station where you will feel much safer.

Could have been worse”

Nice Staff, fairly convenient location

Nice friendly staff, lent me a converter for free. But the room quality was extremely poor, and the cleanliness left quite a bit to be desired (And this comes from someone who has stayed in hostels throughout Asia and Europe). While the hotel isn't to blame for guests having in my dorm room while I was trying to pack, it does make one wonder where their name came from.

Cheap but by no means great”

Hump backpackers is 2 train stops till you are right in the heart of the CBD but that's the end of the reasons to stay there. Rooms aren't similar to photos displayed, felt more like shoving 4 beds into a single bedroom than the spread out room photos shown. Bathrooms are dingy, unkempt, there are electrical faults that instead of actually dealing with them they just ducttape and clingwrap over them despite me telling them I had been shocked touching light switches. Walls are falling apart, when ever someone above me moved around pieces of paint would fall onto my bed which really wasn't nice to come back to every day. Beds were clearly thrashed about and incredibly rickety, any slight movement would wake the entire room up. All in all, I stayed there, I wouldn't again, there are much better maintained hostels around Sydney for similar money.

여성 여행객 혹은 안전한 거리를 원하시는 분들에게는 비추천입니다.”

일단 숙소 근처에 술집, 클럽, vip lounge등 완전 유흥거리에 있어서 밤에 정말 시끄럽습니다. 그리고 술취하신 분들과 노숙자분들이 길거리에 많이 돌아다니십니다. 물론 저에게 그분들이 시비를 걸거나 해꼬지를 하지는 않았는데 혼자 다니시는 여성 여행객분들에게는 추천하지는 않습니다. 놀기 좋아하시고 술 좋아하시는 분들에게는 위치와 숙소 분위기는 추천해드립니다. 방 청결 상태는 딱히 좋지는 않습니다. 냄세도 많이나고 방도 정말 비좁습니다 ㅋㅋㅋ 머 그런게 배낭여행의 낭만이라면 얼마든지 추천해드립니다. 그런데 그런게 싫으신 분들은 돈을 조금 더 지불하고 시내쪽이나 좀 더 깔끔한 곳을 추천해드려요. 그리고 시티랑 거리도 가까우면서 멀어서 구경다니시기에는 은근 불편할 수도있어요 좋은 점은 바로 앞에 metro,coles(홈플러스, 이마트 같은곳)이 있어서 장을 보거나 필요한 물건을 살때 정말 편합니다. 그리고 지하철역도 도보로 2분?도 안되서 교통편은 좋다고 생각합니다. 요약 : 술마시고 여러사람들과 어울려 놀기 좋아하시는 분들에게는 추천! 그게 아니고 숙소에 들어와서 편하고 조용하게 쉬고 싶으신 분들에게는 비추천합니다. 제 후기가 도움이 되셨기를 바라면서 즐거운 여행되세요^^
