    Didn’t really enjoy the area around the hostel. Restaurants were mostly asian food. However it is a very easy walk to the opera house and botanical gardens.

    No air con in the rooms so if it's slightly warm it's awful to sleep in. Rooms are quite cramped. Despite signs on the wall that said reception opened at 8am we rang to double check and the night manager claimed there would be someone there at 7am but there was nobody there even up until 7:58. This meant we had to get our key deposits back through a bank transfer which wasn't the best, but we are still grateful it was sorted for us. Suppose its cheap for Sydney but not the most amazing hostel.

    Cockroaches were all over the kitchen, kitchen is also a little small for the amount of guests. Our first bedroom smelt so bad to the point we had to move room, seccond room much better however cockroaches also present in the room...

    Not great for solo travellers due to all the long termers who were there. The room was relatively clean but that can depend on who you’re sharing with! Location was good, 2 minute walk from kings cross station which can take you anywhere eg Bondi, circular quay, the airport etc. Bathrooms weren’t that clean but were acceptable and it is very noisy (especially at weekends) due to drunken backpackers! The rooftop bbq on fridays and free breakfast were both good too. Probably would go back.

    i saw a bunch of cockroaches on multiple occasions. it was not very clean at all, there were huge stains in the hallway. the vibe here is very odd because most of all the guests have been there for a long time and have jobs in the city etc so they already had their friends at the hostel which made it hard to socialize. everyone goes out every single night all night. the staff was nice and helpful.

    There was a cockroach in my room and overall the bathroom didn't seem clean either. It also said towels would be provided online so I didn't bring one. When I went to ask they said that not only did they not provide towels, but they were sold out of towels to rent. I had to go out of my way to look for towels to purchase.
