Hostel in good location for King's Cross. Cool design inside, but looks dated. Bathrooms weren't very clean and not well thought out - nowhere to change, hang towels or clothes, etc. Was pretty noisy at night with people shouting and stamping at 4am one night. Room was tiny and basic - uncomfy mattress and creaky floor. Very basic breakfast but kitchen area was dirty with flies. Majority of staff helpful. Good BBQ for $5 with beer. Suited to younger party people as noisy.

We had a great time staying there. The staff was extremely helpful and very friendly. They gave some great recommendations. Good value for money especially the private rooms. And great location, close to a lot of good restaurants and just of the main strip in Kings Cross. So if you're off to the City for a party this is the place to stay. Highly recommended!

Mardi gras weekend in Sydney so it was an awesome cheap place to stay. Typical hostel. May not be for you if you're not used to hostels.
