    Had a great stay at this hostel twice; The brilliant location, friendly and always helpful staff and general warm, relaxed atmosphere creates an ideal place to stay and a true ‘home away from home’ vibe. Its a relatively small hostel which helps to make your stay more personal as you can talk to and get to know both the staff and the other guests a lot easier. The facilities are good, the bedrooms, bathrooms and shared spaces are clean and I would happily stay here again :)

    Lovely welcoming staff, stayed in the double private room and had a tv and our own fridge and tea/coffee facilities which was an added bonus. Place a little dated but they are in the process of updating it as it an old building but didnt cause a problem. Free brekki - always a winner!! Would recommend.

    I had a great time staying at Asylum! The staff really go out of their way to make you feel at home and are great at their jobs. Some areas are a bit rough around the edges but they are working to fix this and it wasn't an issue for me. Apart from that everything was really clean including the bathrooms and kitchen, the kitchen was a tad small but worked just fine! Locks aren't provided so make sure you grab one on your way there. Amazing location too! I would definitely recommend staying here.

    Staff members are super nice and helpful. The room was clean but there were quite some cockroaches around the room and the patio. Kings Cross station is 2 mins away. I would definitely stay there again.

    Place is showing a little age but still decently maintained. Staff is really great and the 6 person room i got was really spacious (heard that it was the biggest room). Facilities are generally adequate but there are only 2 bathroom per floor (that i can remember). During peak occupancy there might be some issues. Although it was off the main road there were traffic noise oming from the garbage truck and other vehicle moving along road alongside the hostel.

    Hood hostel, friendly staff. Pretty good overall if it weren't for very obnoxious guest called Johnny being loud in the middle of the night when everyone else was sleeping. Not enough toilets for all the guests, had to go to other floors quite often. Location was good, really close to Kings Cross station.

    Clean hostel with friendly staff, kitchen was small and often crowded but had everything you needed to cook. Felt like more of a house share for people working than a backpackers hostel. Our stay was perfectly fine but would choose somewhere with more of a backpack vibe in Sydney next time.

    The staff and the atmosphere there is good however there are several drawbacks. The place feels very old, the beds are really uncomfortable and noisy and the showers aren't great. On the first day I was there the shower tap came out the wall and the bathroom flooded. Also when using the wifi it makes you post as where you've checked into on your Facebook. Which really isn't cool. I was going to stay longer but I really didn't like the place.
