Upon arriving, my first impressions were it's located in a secure building with a security guard / concierge as soon as you enter. It's on the 4th floor and the main area is quite spacious and bright, which I really enjoyed. Each room was clean, warm (cozy), and had little lockers to stow your stuff away for the day. They provided locks for you. Wifi is fast. Kitchen available. Honestly, the place made me feel like home. Hostel perfect for my Sensation White Party, just 5 min walk to the ArenA.
The best thing about this hostel for me was the atmosphere. It was relaxed, creative, open for people to sit, watch some sports on tv, and chat about their adventures travelling and about life. Super chill, and each room and living space is beautifully painted in theme by some amazingly talented artists. Trevor and his girlfriend were super helpful and kind to not only recommend some off the beaten path places to visit but also the easiest way to get there. Ended up extended my stay 4 more days.
DESPITE the poor review, this place was one of the greatest for partying! If that's what you enjoy then this is the hostel for you. Located in Kings Cross--great for sunday sesh, nights out to clubs, shopping and a nice 20 minute walk to the outdoor poor and seawall path to the beautiful view of Sydney's Opera House and Harbour Bridge. I LEFT another hostel in Kings cross to come back to this place BECAUSE of the atmosphere. Your choice ;) Of course, it's the people that make your visit worth it
