    Best hostel in Sydney if you ask me!! Loved the staff and we came back several time over the past couple months we stayed in Sydney! And I MUST RAVE about the breakfast, Adriano is the best pancake maker in the world! He made breakfast so fun and enjoyable, i’m going to miss him so much! His Canadians will always remember him❤️

    Can't complain. Asked to move rooms after first night. Previous was a bit noisy. No problem, moved promptly. Nice breakfast and free gym pass up the road a nice touch. Location is superb. Train station literally around the corner. Wifi was of good quality. Would without doubt stay again.

    Very Good

    Good hostel stayed for 2 weeks. The rooms are very spacious with storage under the beds and lockers for added security. \ the location is a 5-minute walk to the Kings Cross station. The kitchen and dining area is small and could do with being renovated however it could be classed as cozy and people have to talk to each other. Alot of stairs to get to the rooms. The shower area is nice, but there are only 2 showers per floor (I think there are ensuite rooms though). Overall would stay again

    Decent hostel, pretty good. Rooms smelled a little and one toilet and one sink for the whole floor to share was a bit of a joke

    although the hostel felt safe the location in kings cross did not. my welcome tour was two guys sitting at a desk pointing where things are, a lot i had to ask other ppl and figure it out myself especially the free breakfast you’d think the staff would over advertise about it. the atmosphere is a lot of groups of people that weren’t very inclusive. hostel events are kinda a joke. amount of facilities wasn’t an issue, but i did witness someone looking at me WHILE SHOWERING in the tile reflection!

    On arrival we were shown our room to find clumps of hair in the toilet (en-suite shared female dorm toilet) and mud and hair all over the shower floor. The aircon leaked onto two bunk beds so one girl had wet bedding. On the Saturday we asked where to go out in Sydney. Both staff members we asked were clueless and said they don’t go out in Sydney so wouldn’t beable to tell us. If you work in a hostel considered ‘social’ you would at least expect the people who work there to recommend where to go

    👍really cheap 👍Friendly helpful staff 👍 Free gym pass is great ! 👎no real social areas , would not recommend for solo travel 👎A bit dirty and shabby could probably do with a refurb and deep clean 👎 Aircon made awful noises and ended up leaking water on someone's bed 👎 Rooms dark due to scaffolding on windows

    I booked this hostel because of its good reviews so I was quite surprised of how bad it was. Came there around 11 pm and had to wait for someone to even meet us at the reception (the sign said to call a number but it went to voice mail). When a guy finally showed he was so high he couldn’t think straight. He thought we came to the wrong hostel even though we didn’t. The hostel itself was dirty and only one toilet for the whole floor which was not enough. Good breakfast though!

    When I arrived my bed (the only one free) was full of sand and I had to ask for changing the sheets. Just three toilets with few showers. Not so clean and the staff very naive. I'll never go there again and neither I'll suggest this hostel to anybody
