Relaxed place with awesome, honest and unbelievably helpful staff. Thanks Liz and Eva.

I was very impressed about the fast and well organised check-in. It isn't a party hostel, what I really appreciate.

Nice hostel in the middle of kings cross. The rooms are okay and the bathrooms are spacious and clean. The kitchen is well equipped. There is only wifi in the kitchen on the ground floor which is oke but the wifi was very bad. Sometimes loading a simple web page wasn't even possible. The staff during the day was very nice but the people who where there at night seemed to ignore us.

it was wonderful backpackers. Everything is clean and beautiful. but We feel a little angry because Some people look down on us because we are Asian. And Many People stay in there but kitchen is just one. so very crowded. Except these, everything is fine. thanks

Really laid back and comfortable place. Eva's made me feel home away from home. Not too far from the train station and also tons of food options too. The rooms were nice as we'll as the bathrooms and shared kitchen/lounge area. Would for sure come back if I was in the Sydney area again. Stoked!

Definitely one of the best place to stay in Sydney. I met a lot of people there. Good place to chill and relax. Not free breakfast all days just one per week but always coffee, chocolate and tea.

The staff at Eva's is just awesome. Everyone, from reception to housekeeping, is friendly, open-minded and helpful. We got a lot of tips from them. Everything is clean and tidy. The kitchen is a little small, though. We enjoyed our stay.

I felt the hostel staff in general were unhelpful. Most people who work in hostels are friendly & interested in helping travellers have a good trip but upon arrival i wasn't given a map, wasn't told anything about the area (the sights, transport etc or any of the basic things a newcomer would need to /like to know). Also, free wifi should be available in the entire hostel, not just the kitchen.

Nothing outstanding about this hostel but it was clean, decent atmosphere. Couple of staff weren't as friendly as others I've encountered along the East Coast, and not much lounge/social area although the roof terrace looking over Sydney was nice with BBQs. Bathrooms were nice, always clean as were the rooms. All in all a good stay at Eva's.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Eva's. It's a friendly, homely environment with kind staff and clean facilities. Liz and Rva do a great job running a tight ship here. The refrigerators smell fresh and guests are generally clean in the kitchen. Rooms are a bit claustrophobic but linens are fresh, bathrooms spotless, water hot . Overall I'm happy with this hostel and would return again.

I had a great stay at Eva's. Yasmin at the reception was very welcoming and helpful. Location was quite safe when I was there despite being close to Kings Cross, a notoriously dangerous area at night. Would definitely recommend to another traveller!

I was in Sydney for a weekend away. The hostel is very close to the train station and is surrounded by shops and restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is a little tired on the inside, but clean.

Free tea, coffee, and WiFi in the common area were lovely. It might be odd, but my favorite aspect of this hostel might be the bathrooms. They were sparkling, had great water pressure and heat, and there were plenty for all the people on our floor. Beds were comfy and the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, etc.

The best part about this hostel is the lovely lady who does all the cleaning. ^_^ It was quiet at night, bathrooms were awesome, kitchen was ok, wifi was slow, staff was friendly and answered emails very fast. Location is great, close to trains and a really good thai-restaurant (Thai-terriffic, the green curry is divine). Would stay again. :)

Very clean and tidy. Lovely to get a fluffy towel! Also really like having oil, Salt and pepper etc in kitchen - makes cooking much easier! Bathroom nice and bed fine. Bunks a bit creaky. Otherwise, all great!

Stay was allright. Good atmosphere, nice dorms and roof terrace. Quite expensive, as everything in sydney. Luggage storage with a code that was shared knowledge for all guests. Staffmember that was around when i got in was rude. Also happened to stay in the same dorm as him; i have not seen him anywhere else than on his bed, not even saying hi when i came in the room!!!
