    Really nice hostel directly at Kings Cross train station, about 5-10 minutes walk from the cathedral and botanic garden and about 20 from Opera house. About 30 minutes from Bondi beach too. Stuff is very friendly and helpful, hostel is nice and clean and you get free basic continental breakfast (self-prepared). Supermarket across the road and plenty of eating or drinking options. Nice place to stay when discovering Sydney.

    I stayed here for 6 nights in the deluxe mixed dorm. When I first arrived I wondered if I would survive the asylum... however as the days went on i assimilated... this has been my favourite hostel in Australia and would stay again in an instant. Staff were so helpful and friendly, excellent facilites and location (nighttime views of harbour bridge), building was a bit old but with character and very clean! Lots of love to the doggos xoxo

    Very Good

    Nice, big rooms and good bathrooms. The kitchen is way too small though and there are not enough bathrooms. Also the only actual common area and places to sit are outside so when it’s raining you’re stuck in front of the TV or in your room. Staff was great though and the dogs are so cute!

    Staff are amazing and location is very good. I had some problems with my room, the so called “B5”: people who were there seemed to be druged, there was a guy masturb**** and a girl naked walking around. Didn’t like it at all. The room smelled awful. Tryed to go to private rooms, and it was only possible to be there two of four nights. I switched rooms with a friend and, although it smelled better and had some sweeter people there, it was a very noisy room (yells/trucks in the street).

    People in rooms need to be informed to put their things in their own space, could hardly walk around room with so much stuff on the floor, shoes everywhere so the room was messy. People in entertainment area were watching inappropriate stuff late at night and I could hear noises and s** acts. Super uncomfortable!! Staff was incredibly nice and willing to help me out with late check-in. Friendly place just needs structure changes for people staying there.
