    This hostel is phenomenal! For the tight quarters of Kings Cross, this place has some of the cleanest and best facilities! (clean bathrooms, tight but super functional kitchen, tons of fridge space- huge bonus, common area/TV room to hang out) Not to mention the staff is incredible- Sam and Missy were both so sweet and super helpful if I needed anything! They were very knowledgable about the city and were able to give me some good tips, and went out of their way to make my stay amazing!

    The safe was super nice and helpful. Answered all my questions. Rooms are a bit messy from the other backpackers so it’s not the hostels fault just messy people. Showers and bathrooms are clean for the most part, I’ve seen worse. Overall great hostel! Will definitely be returning.

    This hostel is NOTHING like other mad monkeys!! (Defo just copied the name) DO NOT BE FOOLED! It's not fun, clean, does not have the same atmosphere - AND THE STAFF ARE SOOO RUDE! Not welcoming at all so you always dread going back after a day out! We also understand the no food and drink rule but they BIN closed foods and not opened drinks! Such as waste of money espically for backpackers like oursleves. Also not enough bathrooms for the amount of beds they have AND KITCHEN IS ROTTEN & GROSS!
