    Place is in the backpacker area of kings cross which is sound but it's got a few strip clubs / prozzys stood on the corner , but a lot of good places to eat nearby, fair few people live and work there so is more social on the weekend with weekdays being fairly quiet. Beds are super squeaky which is a bit annoying but can't knock the place and would stay here again if in Sydney, also very handy it's bang next to tube station

    Very Good

    30 Nov 2018
    This hostel is in a pretty good location for the money (it is in the “red light” district though - strip clubs, etc...). Easy to take the train to the more popular areas. The cleanliness of the bathrooms was good, but the dorm I stayed in wasn’t the cleanest. It also seemed like the people I shared the dorm with had been there for a lonnnnnng time & they had all of their stuff everywhere. So not sure how much the dirty-ness was from them or the hostel. I would consider staying here again.

    The area was sketchy, but a short walk to everything you would need/want to get to. The beds were very uncomfortable, the street was extremely loud overnight and the kitchen was very small. The staff were very helpful and kind, though.

    A bit rowdy, rooms smell funky, no AC, but in a convenient location. I'd only stay here if you're looking to meet other people to get super drunk with but not a great placr if you're prioritizing cleanliness/comfort.

    The staff were super friendly, but the place was pretty gross. Cockroaches everywhere, the longterm people had a bunch of empty food packets in the room, I got eaten alive by something in the night, but I didn’t see any bedbugs. They offered free breakfast every morning which was awesome and it was close to the train so that was convenient. Definitely more of a loud party atmosphere for 18 year olds. You can find cleaner and way nicer places in the city for the same price. I left after 2 nights.

    Only booked this on NYE as there was nowhere else to stay. It’s possibly the most dirty, unprofessional & nerve-racking place. Being on Kings Cross, it’s a very rough area with a lot of homeless/drug addicts/strippers. The bedroom was tiny, the bathrooms/showers are all shared with other rooms and had broken mirrors & rubbish all over the floor. Staff are unprofessional & rude. I went to check out the next morning & the reception lady rocked up very late.

    We had to check out after our first night as we counted over 14 cockroaches in our dorm. Staff were not helpful one bit . The hostel is situated in what looks like the red light district of Sydney. Definitely not safe walking around the area after sunset on your own especially if you’re a girl.
