Great fun atmosphere and friendly staff. I had a blast with the rooftop party. The place could do with a little maintenance though and they could use some fans or aircon in the rooms. Still, had a good time.

Hostel it's self was fine and the staff were really great. The rooftop garden is smaller than it looks but it was still nice to have it there. I just didn't much like the kings cross area.

Great location for visiting the city. Rooms were cleans and beds were comfortable. But the WiFi didn't work, the kitchen wasn't very clean, and there appeared to be a lot of long term residents which affected the whole 'vibe'. The rooms were hot and it was very noisy with the windows open. But overall it was alright.

Right in the middle of Kings Cross, it's hard to argue with the location on this one. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Stayed there over New Years and they definitely cranked up the price for that. Definitely didn't feel "clean" but sometime what can ya do. Also the claim to have "Ceiling Fans" but they absolutely do not have any fans whatsoever in the rooms which makes it almost impossible to sleep in the summer. Suggestion: bring your own fan.

Staff were very friendly but the hostel was not very clean. There ade always plenty staff around cleaning the bathrooms but the kitchen and hallways were full of cockroaches. No air-conditioning so keeping the windows open at night was not ideal with location of the hostel and noise.

Worst hostel! No curtains in our room the outside light kept us awake. Window wouldn't stay open had to prop open with a bottle. Bins kept outside the window & had no net so there were lots of cockroaches! The room had no fan or air con so it was a sweat pit to sleep. At night the hostel came alive, to the point where you were woke up by people banging on the corridor walls and shouting. There was even an arrest outside our room! You get breakfast but milk is warm! Never stay here!

Stayed over christmas. was a kiwi guy who was off his face on weed all the time, was homophobic and eventually smashed the hostel window....staff didn't want to know and just said 'why don't you call the police'. Pretty sure it's their job to make sure people paying to stay there feel safe! The bloke was eventually arrested but still came back to the hostel two more times and staff did nothing. fridges are rarely cleaned out. Rooms not cleaned properly and too stuffy. No fans avaliable!!
