Property Description

Welcome to Mad Monkey Backpackers Kings Cross

Please note that this is a hostel for international travellers aged between 18 and 35 years old. Therefore, a valid international passport must be presented at check-in.

We pride ourselves on our amazing atmosphere so please only stay if you want to meet and socialise with other like minded travellers. Our entertainments team will organise nights out every night and get you the best deals such as free entry and a free drink at local pubs/clubs.

The building is cleaned top to bottom every day and although being on the main night club strip our solid walls allow for a quiet sleep too.

With our FREE Ultra-fast Wi-Fi throughout the hostel, our famous FREE HOT breakfast, FREE tea/coffee, FREE Meal Nights a few times a week, FREE TV room with Netflix, cable, and 7 speaker surround sound, makes Mad Monkey KX the best value for money in Kings Cross and popular for both short and long term guests!

Our XMAS/NYE package dates are now available for booking!
Full payment will be made to your credit card on 01 Dec 16 for any bookings over NYE with no cancellations after this time.

Package Inclusions:
Welcome party on the first night, giving you the chance to form friendships with like minded backpackers. Our friendly staff will introduce themselves and serve up a traditional Free Australian BBQ with some free drinks to get everyone chatting.

Our daytime events coordinators will organise Free BBQ’s, Beach days (Bondi, Coogee and Manly), sports days and tours to Sydney attractions throughout your stay.

Kings Cross evenings are where the real fun begins! Our night time events staff have a jam packed schedule with free entry and a free drink at various hand picked bars/clubs every night of your stay.

There will be a XMAS boat party with over 400 backpackers where you will travel past Sydney Opera House and the Harbour bridge and free entry and bus transfers to a night club after party.

On Xmas day we will come together as a hostel. We will head down to the famous Bondi Beach to celebrate a traditional Aussie Xmas with your new Mad Monkey Family :)

On NYE we will take you to a great local Sydney park, drink and play games during the day and then watch Sydney’s famous NYE fire works from the waters edge. Our three hostels will meet with other hostels creating an awesome group of a few hundred backpackers.

On the 02 Jan some of our guests choose to stay on and some continue on their travels. For the ones leaving we all get together and send them off in style by throwing a massive party to complete this package.

Backpackers each year forge long lasting friendships/relationships during this period. It is a special time for our hostel as everyone is living and partying together for an extended period of time which creates a simply amazing experience.

Don't miss out - join the Mad Money Family :)

Latest Review

" We stayed for 2 nights and have mixed feelings on it. The people here were great, staff very friendly and welcoming and everyone went out together at night which was a great time. The facilities were a bit old though so some cracked tiles or glass and things seemed a bit dingy. Main bathrooms were a bit cleaner but the kitchen wasn't that clean at all. The area, King's cross is a popular backpacker area but those that are not travelers are a bit on the less desirable side. "
