Hotel Name: The Downing Hostel
Address: 253 Castlereagh Street, Sydney CBD, 2000 Sydney, Australia
Th hostel is one block from St James train station, so it is easy to get to from the airport train.
My private room was clean and bright, with a big window facing the street. The bed was a double bed with a single bunk. There was a work desk in the room as well.
The common area is comprised of tables lined along a corridor so it felt a bit odd sitting there while it is a passage way.
There is a shared kitchen with enough space for self catering. There are supermarkets nearby as well so you can cook for yourself.
The shared bathroom were kept in good order.
There is wifi throughout the hostel and i had no problem connecting in my room. The hostel dorm rooms seemed a bit more cramped, and the common areas weren’t very well laid out. Overall this was ok if you are just looking for a cheap private room.
