    Very nice place with a good atmosphere and alot of facilities. If you ask me, some of the staff could do with some improvements but then again she did give me a dollar for the washing when I was a dollar short, so that makes up for it. Overall banging hostle

    Just a quick trip and stayed one night, hostel has everything you need really. They had a free BBQ on when I was there which was pretty cool! Staff were always around and cleaning all day which was a nice change. Can't really fault the place. Kitchen a little bit small but the hostel isn't a big one anyway.

    Went all by myself for 4 days, hoping to meet some people in the hostel to hang out with and it went out perfectly. The atmosphere makes it very easy to meet people and staff members are very friendly as well. Would recommend for sure

    I might have been there at just a bad time. There was a loud group of people who were drinking, yelling, smoking, and making a mess everywhere. Since the reception closed at 8pm there was no one really to keep an eye on things and the entire rooftop was not only cover in beer bottles, but reeked of pot/cigarettes. Talking with other people it seems to be a one off thing with just them. Definitely colored my experience. Otherwise, reception was super friendly and I appreciated access to a gym.

    The room was super small also couldn't close the window which was annoying.I booked an all female dorm, didn't realise bathrooms would be shared with guys as well.would have been nice to know this info beforehand. Breakfast was good, kitchen though was tiny and crowded during lunch and dinner time

    While this hostel is about a 5 min walk to Kings Cross Station, and the staff are friendly - it is also really, really unclean. When I walked into the bathrooms basically every toilet was unflushed, hairs everywhere, toilet paper and other gross things on the ground, sinks covered with hair and soggy tissues. Really bizarre. I do feel sorry for the people who have to clean these areas (looks like they are just backpackers themselves!) but I cannot recommend this hostel!

    Average. The location is great and the staff are friendly. The bathrooms are nice but are not clean plus they are too small for the number of people using them. The rooms could have been cleaner. The kitchen is far too small for the number of people staying there. The rooftop is possibly the best part of the hostel

    Not enough bathrooms. One uni-sex bathroom with 4 stalls and 4 showers. Needed cleaning. Noisy and messy in the weekend, it's alright if you want to party, but not if you just want to sleep.

    Loud. Loud. And more loud. It smelled like living in a sweaty gym bag. There was a rowdy crowd chanting and singing until 10:30 loud enough ear plugs wouldn’t let me escape the noise. Bathrooms are unisex so drunk guys just peeing with the doors open. Vomit on the bathroom floor in the morning. Front entrance wide open when staff isn’t there. Took three calls to get ahold of the night manager. Table in dining room filthy the whole time. Pros: staff was kind and courteous. Great location.
