    This place is located right in the middle of it all! The staff is great and there are lockers underneath the bunks. It is a party hostel though Incase you are looking for a quiet place.

    The hostel wasn’t like other hostels I’ve stayed in. It was a Victorian house style. A double terrace knocked through. I was in an all girls dorm which as clean and fine to sleep in with a shared bathroom near our room. It was pretty busy when I stayed so many people to talk to and more homely vibe to it. The security deposit was the highest I’ve paid and on every notice around the hostel you were being warned that they had your $50 deposit which I felt was a bit ‘full on’

    Pros: Near Kingscross Station, cheap restos & convenience stores, affordable rate with good service, free wifi, free breakfast and with kitchen. Cons: The facade of the hostel looks creepy, the window in the room 35 cant be closed & its freezing cold in wintr, bunk beds has no bed curtain for privacy purposes, the tables & benches outside the kitchen is full of sprinkles of water in the morning where I cant sit because i will be wet in winter, the guests must be silent inside the room.

    Would be much better if you can keep wifi online. It is quite unstable to use in room. And...well, I saw a bug in my room when I came inside the room given. Fortunately, any bugs were not seen after I got rid of it.

    This place doesn’t look like much from the outside and isn’t the best inside either. Staff were friendly but the hostel wasn’t the cleanest and the kitchen was tiny. Location is decent though.

    The pictures look good but they left out the corridors and staircases that look so worn out that you question whether you'd want to stay. The rooms are airy and have ample storage facilities. However, outside my room the router kept repeating "WiFi connected" every ten seconds. Breakfast included (though it's simple jam and bread and plain cereal), but there's nowhere to eat it really in the winter. I tried in the common room but there were 3 people sleeping there.

    The hostel is really close to Kings Cross Station so getting our heavy bags there. It’s like a massive student house. It felt like more of a working hostel rather than travelling hostel which is fine. Walking in first impressions not so great, especially the kitchen and communal areas but my room (all female) and bathrooms were pleasantly and surprisingly clean. Also you get with a $50 deposit which I really don’t think is worth given the state of the hostel. Got it back after the stay.
