    Favorite hostel I stayed at whilst in Sydney, amazing free breakfast, nice rooms and comfy beds with their own power points, 30-40 min walk to CBD and Opera house/ bridge or able to take a train from the station down the road! Maintenance was always on point regularly cleaning everywhere. Staff were pleasent. Cons: Only 2 showers per floor and 1 toilet, found myself waiting fairly often. the area Kings Cross is a bit dodgey, lots of homeless and s** shops around. The kitchen gets super hot!!

    If I ever visit Sydney again, I would stay in a different part of the city, but as far as the hostel itself, I'd recommend it. The free breakfast is substantial enough to get your day started. The beds are comfy. The lockers have plenty of space. It was clean. The train station is really close.

    A party hostel, too noisy specially if your room is in the first floor where there is the reception, the kitchen and the TV room. The kitchen is very small and has no AC so it gets really hot when people are cooking. The rooms and the bathroom are clean but there is only one toilet and one shower for an entire floor which can be problematic in the morning. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would recommend only for backpackers looking for a party hostel in Sydney.

    Like Kings Cross itself, the hostel is indeed of a refit & revamp. The main issue I had was that I didn’t think it was particularly clean- my bedsheets looked questionable, the rooms didn’t appear like they’ve been cleaned in a long time and the shared shower between 8 people in the dorm was cleaned probably a month ago. Secondly the layout didn’t really allow for a suitable communal area to hang out and meet other guests. Definitely is not worth the price tag!
