We had a lovely family dinner here. Service was outstanding, meals tasty and big.
Appreciated the extra touches, extra sauce for kids and bonus jug of softie for them. House wines and beer also very good. Thank you.

Bar is very over stimulating with no real design. Bartender was extremely rude and poor layout of bar and amenities. Would t recommend very average. Miss the old bar and layout simple and easy

Stopped by for a quick lunch, and I gotta say, this was a really great sandwich!

The chips were seasoned well, the sausage was well cooked, and the spices and flavour from the meat blended really well with the sauces and vegetables inside giving a really unique taste that I haven't really enjoyed anywhere else! I'm glad I opted in for the sandwich over a burger!

Great cocktails and great atmosphere. Perfect location, right in town. Dropped in here for a drink with my family after Anzac Day March. The staff were very friendly. Perfect place for a quiet drink.

The Downing is a great hostel in a great location, right next to all public transport and in the heart of the CBD! The staff are all super friendly and as is it a smaller hostel you can get to know and mingle with all the other guests so well during their weekly events which they have on almost everyday! The hostel is one of the cleanest i've stayed in and overall has a great vibe ill deffo be back!

The absolute worst. One ceiling fan spinning as slow as paint dries, no air circulation in rooms, listening to every single noise coming from the street. Disgusting mould filled bathrooms with nowhere but the toilet or sink to place your change of clothes and toiletries. I booked for two nights but in the middle of the first night booked another hostel because this is unbearable. I can't sleep. Absolute waste of money. Avoid at all costs.

A hostel with such potential, let down by a management duo who are about as useful as an ejection lever on a helicopter. This hostel provides the bare minimum for you need for an average stay, it is very social which is about the only benefit. The many drawbacks of this hostel can be hidden by the hard working, entertaining staff, who was again, themselves are held back by the a management team who also happen to be a couple, so as you can imagine, they are full of different ideas (not!). The rooms are hot and average with cockroaches making camp in most of the rooms, the communal areas are nothing short of sub-par and although the kitchen has good facilities, it is always crowded which makes it a safety hazard when cooking. The main benefit is the location however to summarise, this is a noisy, insect infected hostel with overall okay facilities and good staff who once again are held back by a management team who are happy to kick guests out for disobeying a rule that doesn't exist on any signs or website T & C's and claim to 'help you out' by speaking to their boss 'for you' who was too busy anyway to come and have civilised and productive chat. This is overall not a terrible place to say if you can avoid the management!

I loved my stay here! All the facilities in the kitchen we're absolutely perfect and had everything I needed! The beds were super comfy and the location is amazing right in the CBD of Sydney so very easy to get around from the hostel! Would 100% recommend:)

Great facilities, great location and great staff!

Everything was always clean and the beds were comfortable. Loads of cool spots in walking distance. Staff are friendly and super helpful. Loved their rooftop area, especially on movie night, you get to see the city in a whole new light with the added bonus of a free drink and some popcorn.

Cannot recommend this place enough!

Great hostel! The location is perfect, you're very central making everything easily accessible. The staff were all super friendly and they put on a different activity every night so it's easy to socialise and meet other backpackers. Dorms are also simple and clean, but very comfy. Definitely recommend staying here if you're coming to Sydney! ????

Visited pub after Anzac Day march. Hotel very crowded with defence force personnel.

Toilets were 2 flights of stairs under hotel. Strong urine odour could be smelt whilst approaching the Toilets.

I stayed here for 2 nights on the weekend. Staff are amazing. Super friendly and helped me with any queries I had. They also told me some cool spots to visit & cheap places for food/drinks. The hostel itself is basic but all that you need really. Within walking distance of everything and train station near by. I Highly recommend to anyone looking to stay ??'????'??

Sumptuously Excellent hotel, very comfortable room, good beds on which you can sleep. It was a one-night driveway an ideal place to relax after a long journey, but it was decided that we would choose the same hotel for walking around the city, as it is ideally located, everything is close by - metro, parking, market, shops. very friendly staff
