We had a great time at Zing backpackers.The location was great as it was 2 minutes walk from kings cross train station & within walking distance to the CBD.The hostel offers free breakfast every morning which is a great help for backpackers on a budget.The staff were really friendly and very helpful.The bathrooms are cleaned 2 daily and are by far the cleanest I have seen in any hostel i've stayed at in Australia.I would definitely recommend Zing to anyone looking for a friendly hostel in Sydney

The hostel has a very family atmosphere. The stuff is friendly and helpful. The citchen could be bigger, sometimes you have to wait to use it, but there is everything you need. The courtyard closes exactly at 9.40 pm, so its quiet afterwards. all the facilitis and rooms are cleaned every day. The location is good to party, even Kings Cross had better times before the lock out rules. 1 min to train station, coles, bars, bottleshop....

Overall its a good place to stay. Our room was quite small but enough for 2 persons. Bathroom could be cleaner. It is very close to the major attractions and I like the Shuttle service which was very convenient for early hours ..


Everything is fine.
