    Great value for money. It’s the second time I stay here, and it will be my go to place anytime I have a few days to experience Sydney.

    All the people were super nice and helpful. It was clean and fun. The location is perfect.

    There were two negative points. It was steaming hot inside the rooms, this was the worst. And breakfast only till 9 and then was the kitchen closed until 10.

    It is close to public transports, you can easily catch a train to Sydney city center. Nice kitchen and facilities. Comfortable bed and the double room had a fridge which was very helpful

    Kings cross area is not famous for good reasons, and specially at night time you can understand why, but the hostel is located in one of the back squares which was nice and quiet. The only bad thing I could say it’s the room was boiling hot, the fan provided isn’t powerful enough, so was always very uncomfortable to be in the rooms

    Friendly people, good idea of a complementary breakfast!

    The room was very very hot and the fan didn’t help.
