Pros: decent location (close to a metro station), relatively affordable, friendly staff, TV room and free breakfast. Cons: bathrooms are not clean/broken a lot (even though they're supposedly cleaned every morning), about a 30 min walk from the CBD and lots of long term residents so not ideal for socialising or going out with other hostelers.

This is a great place to stay in Sydney amd its easy to meet backpackers and whv people from all over the world. Staff are really friendly and helpful and there is a great social atmosphere. Good location - about 30 min walk to the harbour. Free breakfast is also fab.

The pictures provided are quite deceiving. I arrived to find the hostel tucked away in a tight old building off a main street in Kings Cross. The entrance, hallway, stairway, and 4-bunk room were all quite narrow which created a claustrophobic effect. The entire hostel looked run-down, but especially the bathrooms where mold and grime could be easily spotted. The doors were broken (one didn't even lock) and there was always a line to use the bathroom, and the wifi signal was spotty. Also no A/C.

Friendly staff who helped a lot when we checked in (gave us maps of the city, directions, free SIM card). Free breakfast everyday was brilliant, good choice and you could eat as much as you liked. Location was good, opposite train station and only a 15 min walk to Sydney opera house viewpoint. Showers could have been a bit cleaner and rooms were slightly cramped, but overall a good stay

The hostel is just a usual hostel nothing less, nothing more (in terms of facilities). The staffs are very accommodating. Breakfast is GREAT. The location is not hard to find. If you're on a tight budget this hostel is highly recommendable.

After trying out two other Hostels in Sydney, this was finally the one that fulfilled my expectations. Especially the staff and the atmosphere were awesome! The cleanliness could be a little better because people left the bathrooms and kitchen rather dirty on some days, though all areas are being cleaned frequently. The weekly free BBQ, Taco Tuesday and the great included breakfast rounded things up, so I can really recommend Hump Backpackers for staying in Sydney!

Great atmosphere, nice and friendly staff. Perfect location in front of the train station and the supermarcket one block away. Full breakfast, and kitchen with oven, tea and coffe. Would definitely stay again.

great breakfast, non-squeaky bed, very friendly staff but i do want to mention the not so good atmosphere. everyone was nice and friendly but for solo travelers it was hard to get to know new people. maybe that was just because of the current set of people though.

The staff was friendly and the hostel clean, but the girls in my room just ignored me when I wanted to introduce myself and then they were just making phonecalls in french and spanish, nearly the same in the common area.
