    Amazing hostel, ideal as a first stop in Sydney, all the long term hosts are very friendly and willing to give good tips on practical matters. The receptionist Sofia in particular is extremely helpful, friendly and professional.

    breakfast is good, bed was comfy and staff was nice. big lockers which is good to keep your stuff safe. space was tight in the room though and the street is busy so heard a lot of noise coming through which was annoying. easy to walk around places though and right by kings cross train station which is also handy.

    Lots of long term travellers here. People who are working and staying for weeks/months. Facilities are pretty decent. Kitchen, common area, patio area. Staff are all travellers also and very nice and helpful. Not ideal for someone just passing through like myself. But I made it work. And you can’t beat the price if you’re on a budget.

    Very Good

    09 Sep 2019
    All in all the hostel is good, it’s clean, the staff is very nice and for me it has a great location as well, even if it’s located in Kings Cross. The only and also biggest problem is that it is way too loud in the evening. If you stay in the 12 bed room right next to the tv room it can be very noisy because the door of the tv room is always open and you hear the people and the tv. They also always play loud music in the evening, so it’s hard to go to sleep when you have to get up early.

    The location is good. The rooms smells and some roommates are old people who live there, so no backpackers. Bathrooms are a bit dirty. I guess you get what you pay.

    Bathrooms were gross, I could feel the springs in my bed. The people staying there are very clique-y speaking their native tongue, making it very hard for an English speaking guest to make friends.

    The hostel is not clean at all. There is always a mad rush to the bathrooms/toilets. There is no space to put your shopping in the kitchen as there are so many long term people staying here. The vibe is lacking and the only saving grace is the breakfast. Never again.

    Atmosphere cold, even if the staff was nice . The black carpet and the white wall make it hard to feel good. The vacuum was still in the tvroom but seems like no-one is using it. Feel not safe at all with the wall in front the reception desk. There is no room for the sun in this place.. or maybe I'm to use to the shining Jolly Swagman backpacker.
