Possibly one of the most decrepit and dirty places, I have ever stayed in (including visits to asia). However staff were nice and the hostel is actually good fun.

One bathroom for 8 rooms, staff obviously make an effort to clean, well situated however if you like kings cross. Very Uninspiring hostel compared to others, good for a place to sleep but no more.

Thank you for you review Alex. It is always appreciated to have critical comments so that it can give us a chance to improve and become better where possible. You stated that the hostel was very “uninspiring”. We have a newly refurbished basement with a pool table, comfy couches, and a huge plasma screen for all guests to enjoy the latest films and TV series. On the ground floor lots of kitchen amenities, along with plenty of information about Sydney, tours, maps and what’s on if interested, with areas to sit and socialise. A free bookshelf stacked with all types of books. An entertainment board with daily events for all guests to involve themselves in, another big TV with Foxtel to watch the news or reality programs. On the roof is a vast space to relax and enjoy the weather, complete with tables and benches, several large beanbags, huge BBQ, trendy L-shaped couch with pillows and of course decorated with thousands of fairy lights that create the most inspiring atmosphere at night. I apologise that you felt for the 1 night you stayed here the hostel didn’t have a good atmosphere. We do have an excellent cleaning team who reside at the hostel and take great pride in their jobs, so thank you for commenting, although on the 2 floors that we have, no floor has 8 rooms or more than. We wish you happy travels, and hope you enjoy Sydney and the rest of Australia.

If you like a 24/7 party experience, this is the hostel for you. It has good facilities and is well situated in Cairns. My only quams was that I had to wear a coat to bed because we could not control the AC in our room and that the place could do with a little jazzing up , its very spartan and utilitarian, why not get some kids in to pain a murel or get some graff artists to do some wall pieces? Overall a lot of fun

Really nice staff. Okay location, close to a subway. Dorms were a little crammed and the dormitory area smelt a little. Overall a good stay but a few improvements needed
