    Best hostel in Sydney. The staff were so friendly and really helpful. Breakfast was a delight and there was free dinners every couple of nights. I ended up extending my stay here a few times, as it was always so fun. Madsive lockers in all the rooms and usb chargers at all the beds. Great people and great times

    Fantastic hostel! Very central and close to the train line. All the staff were very sociable and welcoming. The hostel is self was very clean with good showers. Only down side is that the kitchen is a little on the small side. The free breakfast and gym pass were a great bonus. Would 100% reccomend to friends.

    Room was good, socket and light per bed. Only 1 toilet and 2 showers per floor which was not enough. Kitchen was good for storage and free breakfast was nice.

    Staff were super friendly. AC wasn't working in our room. Ensuite had no curtains so any other buildings could look straight in to shower and toilet. The kitchen really only had two bench tables and so unfortunately the hostel just didn't have any space or atmosphere to meet many people. They have a sister Mad Monkeys nearby with a rooftop, which is probably a better choice.

    Super hot rooms, with flies everywhere. Kings cross just isn’t the nicest place so not much to be expected, you can at least get to everywhere you need to in Sydney rather quickly.

    Greeted by a load of stairs before getting to reception. One toilet, one sink and two showers for the whole floor is not sufficient. Rooms were laid out awkwardly so your head was right next to another stranger’s on some beds. You had your own power sockets which was good

    Very disorganized and run mostly by backpackers. The dinner room next to the kitchen is mostly used for big groups drinking so there was never space to eat so you have to go to the movie room and try to find a place if there is any. Only the girl receptionist was professional and try to help us after pur room being changed every single night during 3 nights because our beds were taken every night we came back to sleep after a long day.
