Very nice place to stay. Very clean. Excellent staff. 100mb wifi per day.


The hostel felt dirty and unclean. We found cockroaches in our beds and the staff weren't helpful at all they just laughed about it. The wifi was also terrible! Would never stay here again.

This was a nice chill hostel, many of the people staying were long term and working. Even though the patio area closed at 10pm, there was still at couch and tv area where you could hang out after 10.

I would definitely stay here again. Good value for money, spacious hostel, lots of bathrooms etc. Liked that the rooms had fridges, sinks, and enough outlets for each bed. Would've been a bonus if we could've played music outside - the no tolerence rule is a bit much.

Thanks for your kind comments Chelsea. We agree, we would love to be able to play music in the sunshine! However, all Kings Cross hostels operate under a strict licence which prohibits any unreasonable noise, unfortunately that includes music.
