    Really good hostel in a good location between the city and Bondi. I booked for only one night but ended up extending for a week because i met a lot of cool people. They had free food a few nights and a pub quiz that made it easy to meet people even though im traveling alone. Staff were helpful and the room was really clean. And there was always someone cleaning the common areas and bathrooms. Overall great stay.

    I spent 5 or 6 nights at Kings Cross Backpackers at the end of June 2019 and I would recommend the hostel if you're looking for an affordable and relaxed backpackers. It's the beginning of Winter so the ambience at the hostel was pretty chilled which was perfect for me. Generally speaking a really lovely bunch of backpackers during my time there. The hostel is clean and the staff are good at dealing with any issues. Some evening events put on but these are pretty low-key (at least in winter).

    Great location near public transport and ferries. Felt very secure, enjoyed having usb plugs and large lockers for luggage. Did not enjoy sharing bathrooms with males due to the amount of times I had to flush the toilet when I came into the stall after one and the showers don’t feel super private. Towel rental fee was high. Quiet at night (but this was only during weeknights) and the rooftop was great. Would have liked reading lights in the bunk beds since the overhead light was very dim.

    Very Good

    Affordable and conveniently located hostel. Room had a lot of long termers and woke up at three AM to drunken idiots - not the hostels fault, but still annoying. I also don’t think any staff work there after certain hours. Really nice shower except for a lack of privacy. Great free breakfast. Wish towels were deposited instead of rented. Overall would stay again, or would pay a bit more for nicer.

    They need to learn how to use a hover, a duster and how to change bed sheets (white drip stains and a half even chocolate bar.) Toilets were very clean unlike the room which literally had an inch of dust on the fan, window sill and our curtains looked as if a dog had chewed them. Wouldn't stay again however downstairs facilities were very good however the room (the main component) was disgusting. 3/10 wouldn't recommend to a friend.

    A girl in my room brought home a guy, above me, very drunk and he screamed the whole night. they were getting physical above me and I did not appreciate this. I did not like her A. Bringing home a man into our girls only room, and then B. bringing home a stranger or a guest. The window was stuck open during my entire stay and staff couldn't fix it so it was very cold at night. The bathrooms were disgusting.
