    The two lovely ladies that welcomed me to Casa Central were wonderful to me and very kind. I want to say a big thank you to them for being such caring and wonderful people.

    Unfortunately I was not able to sleep at all because the matress on the bed was so hard that my hips and legs were in constant pain and discomfort while trying to sleep. I hate to complain but If it were not for the rock hard bed I would definately recommend and use the Casa Central again.

    located right next to central station so a good base to explore Sydney. Free tea / coffee and laundry facilities also free wifi in rooms which was handy. really nice staff ,chilled out vibe as only a small hostel.

    The mattresses are very hard was like sleeping on a tombstone. if you have had a drink its not to bad, but not the best if you are sober!!!

    This hostel is close to the central station so it is very easy to visit the town. (buses, trains, metro) The area is also nice for nightlife.

    Considering its location Casa was surprisingly quiet, the bed comfortable, the bathroom clean, the kitchen well-equipped AND the Wi Fi free, even in your room. As it becomes more established Casa will become even better.

    Nothing within their control - there was building going on next door - although I think more could be done to make the rooftop a pleasant area for sitting.

    It's very near to the Sydney Central train station and knowing that Sydney's train system is really well connected to all parts of the city, which made the trip easier for me. Other than that it offers free wifi and inside is really clean.

    No big sign boards outside with hotel name on it, which will make the tourists easier to identify the place.

    Fabulous

    The stuff very friendly, gorgeous international stuff, Italian and Venezuelan girls very friendly, beautiful smiles, keen to help out travellers I'll definitely go back again

    the bed was very hard, a bit uncomfortable but not everything has to be perfect!!

    Fabulous

    Great friendly staff, really clean and reasonably priced. Much better than the YHA! Slightly older crowd so not everybody wants to get drunk all night.

    Great value for money! Clean kitchen and bathroom. Good location, very close to Central Station and walking distance to the Convention & Exhibition Centre/ Darling Harbour. The other guests were friendly and quiet. Free wi-fi available -very awesome. Good to have washing facilities and food storage in the kitchen available. If I return to Syd, i'd definitely stay at Casa before any other hotel.

    The bed was extremely hard. I thought I would have bruises. On the second night I slept on top of the blankets to try to add comfort. There was a little bit of rowdy noise from the pub patrons on Friday night, but nothing sleep couldn't overcome eventually.

    The location is ideal as it is right next to the train terminal and it is easy to get around

    The room is too small and the bath needed to be shared basis

    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Casa Central. I was a good distance away to feel safe and comfortable and still close enough to see all the sights with no hassles. We bought a bus pass which allowed us onto public transport (trains,buses and water ferries) and within walking distance of them all. It was well located when it came to staying in town. We stayed with people from all over the world (even some that did not speak english) and they all made us feel welcome. Thankyou very much Casa I would love to stay with you again.

    I have just been told that the springs on the door were to strong and caused the doors to slam.

    I would not recommend Casa Central at 11 Regent Street as it displayed no name or number and I spent ages looking for it and this was stressful in the dark. The hotel across the road did not know of the place. I eventually knocked on a glass door showing lighted stairway. This resulted in staff coming down and surprise! Surprise! It was the Casa Central. Others staying at Casa had had problems finding the place!! This hotel should not be listed until name and number are displayed!!!

    The staff is really nice. The living room is comfortable, the bathroom was clean and the location is pretty much in the heart of Sydney.

    It was a bit cold in my (single) room, yet it was no big deal as I spent most of my time there in the living room.
