    A decent hostel for Sydney standards. I didn't see any cockroaches! Breakfast is cereal and toast. The staff are very friendly. The kitchen could do with updating though.

    Very Good

    The hostel was in a great location, close to kings cross station, and the free pizza on Friday was awesome. However, it was pretty grubby. The kitchen was never clean and every morning the sink was full of people’s dirty dishes from the night before so there was rarely clean bowls and cups to use for breakfast. The guy who worked behind reception was always doing everyone else’s washing up- maybe management could think of a way to encourage people to clean up after themselves?!

    I was late arriving and there was no staff there after 9pm. People were pretty unhelpful and not particularly friendly. In my room the three people I shared with wouldn’t even talk. Glad I found somewhere else. The hostel does have a nice terrace area open until 10.30.

    Not many toilets or showers for the numbers there. The long term people left it in a real mess the nights we were there for the poor hostel staff. It was quite party-ish and the noise was pretty bad.

    It’s close to the center, but i think it’s not for the tourists because people are leaving for long time.
