Good location, nice place, good value for money. Smelt a bit funny but nothing too bad.

Decent enough hostel, comfortable stay but do not arrive after 7 if you don't want to be treated like you're trying to rip them off- absolutely no flexibility with leaving something as insurance... Even if you arrive 5 minutes before they close, have kept them well informed of arrival times. Oh, and room had a weird smell in it, and the safe didn't work.

Apart from the friendly welcome during check-in and the nicely done up bathrooms, there's not a lot of good I can say about this place. Quite dingy and smelly (especially stairwell), bedroom was too hot at night (no aircon except a couple of noisy desk fans), kitchen/dining area is way too small for amount of guests, laundry is only accessible certain hours. 'TV room' is nothing more than 2 sofas & 22" LCD in hallway. Worst of all, signs everywhere stating all manner of rules. Bad vibes overall.

Nice little hostel with friendly staff. The ensuite bathroom could do with a little maintenance, but overall a clean and welcomed stay!

Standard, nothing special.

The kitchen is small for the number of people in the hostel. We barely found a place to stock our food and give up on cooking due to the lack of space and utensils (forks, plates, etc), which was always dirt. The common area is also minimal. Staff didn't seem interested in providing much information. We asked about the supermarket and the girl at the reception gave us a map and the supermarket was not even marked. Also, the door of our double room was left openned for two days in a row.

While I don't like to make a bad comment there are a few things they should improve… bath mat and hand towel were there the whole 3 days (longer than thatI presume) and were beginning to smell. Having the tv area in the hallway of the first floor where 5 dorms were was not good as there was no curfew in turning it off or even keeping it down after a certain hour. Dishes/kitchen weren't particularly clean but they did have someone to help out with that

Need more kitchen to so many guest or less guests. To many germans in one places it make the atmosphere un polity.

The lockers were broken and had been for weeks, the lights didn't work in the showers and the staff didn't really care about it. It was also quite filthy and the only thing you got from the hostel was a blanket. Had it been cheaper it would have been OK and I wouldn't recommend Kings Cross to anyone who doesn't like prostitutes, drug dealers or youth gangs in basically every corner during night time.

Nice Bathrooms but had to wait 30 minutes in the Morning. Really nice roof top terrace. But if you are older than 20 there are much better places Tod stay.

Free Wi-Fi, plenty of power points for recharging electronics, nice shelf and light by your bedside, very nice and practical hostel. The location is a little far from downtown Sydney (Circular Quay area), but with the economic realities of the city seem to indicate that a downtown hostel would charge a lot more per night then what I paid in Kings Cross. Public transportation in Sydney excellent, so getting from hostel to downtown not at all a problem

the only reason I stayed at Eva's was because I needed a hostel for one night in that area and every other hostel required a 3 night minimum for weekends. the hostel itself was average. the staff was super friendly and the location was great. however the bathrooms were extremely dirty and the rooms weren't the greatest.

Very clean bathroom, kitchen and bedroom and accommodating staff. Was lovely to have a private room for the group with hardly any extra cost. Nothing to complain about at all!

No service sorry. After 6pm, nobody was there to help us and give service. So we never had towel for shower and we had to go to an other hostel to by ticket for airport pickup.

The cleaning lady is just lovely!! Turning the light off after 11pm in the kitchen us quite annoying. Bathrooms always clean, bedrooms a bit tiny and smelly. Big disadvantage are backpackers on work and travel holiday who basically live in the hostel.
