    It is a tight community and many said it was much better than other hostels - cleaner and more friendly. For black travelers like me - this is no fault of the hostel - but this hostel and many other hostels - really lack melanin :) lot of Europeans.

    Really liked this hostel! The kings cross area isn’t as loud as other neighborhoods, but still has bars and plenty of shops. There’s a decent amount of travelers staying there long term, but it was still easy to chat and meet new people! Definitely would stay here again.

    I had a great stay here. The reception staff were lovely and had no issues in letting me move room when requested. The facilities are great - the rooftop is lovely, kitchen well stocked and chill out area a nice addition. It’s well located too. Rooms were cleaned regularly and decent lockers to put stuff in too.

    Stayed at kings cross backpackers for 2 nights, staff are very friendly and the rooms were a good size but no air conditioning meant that it was warm at night, free breakfast and gym access is a nice bonus, location is abit out of the way but you are near kings cross station, it also has a nice rooftop terrace , overall it was a pleasant stay and I would recommend

    Nice hostel, got upgraded to a 4 bed dorm which was nice. The rooftop was nice but found it hard to meet people as everyone seemed to have a close group already

    Stayed here for 4 nights. Only 1 toilet on 2nd floor which is no where near enough. No where to put clothes in shower on 2nd floor and it floods very badly. Weren’t told there were more toilets and better showers on 1st floor on arrival. Staff were using laundry and said we weren’t allowed to use them. They should have their own. Don’t offer it to guests then say no. Strange atmosphere as well. Seemed like everyone knew each other and weren’t very friendly or inviting. Think they worked there.

    Pretty average hostel. Breakfast isn’t in the actual hostel & the kitchen is tiny. Rooftop and free gym pass are the best aspects of the hostel.

    Not a fan of this location at all. Very scary vibe at night. A lot of homeless people in the area. The rooms were decent, own personal plug is nice. Everything else was below average. Small kitchen, small common area which is in the basement, a lot of stairs. Staff wasn't welcoming.

    No air con in room, fan did nothing and room was ridiculously hot. Bathrooms quite dirty. Kitchen very small. Hostel staff is mainly made up of backpackers working for accommodation and it left an unprofessional workforce who don’t want to be there or do the work and are rude. Atmosphere lacked for me, quite cliquey and unfriendly. For the same price stay somewhere else.
