  • Very nice atmosphere. Internet was slow at times, but worked fairly well. Kings cross is of course not everyone's favourite area at nighttime, but the Hostel is far enough away from most of the action, while still having the train station around the corner. Will come back on my next trip to Sydney

  • I got a bed and shared facilities in a central location that wasn't run down. I might got a bed bug bite, too. Check-in becomes apparently impossible if you don't carry your passport even if you carry you Australian issued state ID (which requires a valid passport) and your driver's licence and have a family member with a passport with you. Official reason: Security. Nonesense, the security system is not a barrier for people with criminal intentions.

  • I stayed here 3 times over the course of February. The largish kitchen is nice but the TV area is a bit dark and grungy. The cleanliness of the rooms depends on the other travellers. There are a lot of long term tenants who seem to take over their rooms and the washrooms need a good scrubbing down to get riid of the musty smell. The walk to all the touristy sites is not bad but is closer to 30 minutes. All that being said, I stayed here repeatedly, so I must not have minded too much.

  • The room was very clean and tidy, also the kitchen is very useful and you can have milk tea, coffee and chocolate for free. On the roof there isa a very nice place where you can have a bbq, sunbath, and there is the laundry room which is very tidy. The staff is very helpful and polite, and you can find many young people to share your experience.

  • Sehr schoenes Hostel! Tolle Dachterrasse! Waschmoeglichkeiten, saubere Baeder, gute Lage, nette Mitarbeiter! Nicht so laut und "partymaessig" wie manch andere Hostels! Wir haben den Aufenthalt genossen! Beautiful hostel! Amazing rooftop terrace, clean bathrooms,laundry available, short ways to downtown, nice staff. Not so noisy and partylike like other hostels!!! We enjoyed our stay there very much!

  • The place was a great place to just relax. Nice and quiet. Only downside was that the other guests were all used to each other, from having been there awhile I suppose, they were not friendly to new people at all.
