A hostel lack of cleaness
Location, location, location
I could enjoy my trip in sydney as the hostel is located in Kings cross which is close to Sydney CBD. I visited most tourist attractions like Opera House by walking. I think the location of the hostel is great. In addition, there are a lot of nice cafes and restraunts near the hostel. But the problem was the hostel's cleaness. If you are planning to stay in this hostel less than a week, I will recommend this place. However, I never recommend this place for more than a week.

Worst hostel i've stayed in
This place is poorly run. first off when i check in i was told i would need to change my room the next day. also the key i was giving for my first room would only open when it wanted to. this was annoying but i didnt mind so much but the next morning i go and ask for my new room key told i cant go in untill they cleaned it. so i had to leave my stuff in the TV lounge where anyone could come and move it etc. Also i had valuables in a bag so didnt want to leave that in the tv room was told i could use the lockers which cost me 5 dollars and they didnt offer to compensate me considering it wasnt my fault i had to check out and move room. this was compounded by the reception area looked more than big enough to have stored that. toilets/showers weren't very clean and shower water power was. it was also rowdy and the tv room was full of yobs. the free breakfast is just cereal/toast. Also i booked into an all male dorm and had a girl in my dorm. AVOID at all costs

Centrally located
Good location
The hotel is not far from Kings Cross station. It's a backpacker's hostel. Do remember to bring your own necessary toiletries as the room is really very basic.

Comfortable stay.
It was clean, room was comfortable and it was close to public transport links.
To be honest, we were hardly in the hostel but the time we were, we had a comfortable stay. It was clean in all areas, but one thing which let it down was the check out time of 9am which didn't really help.

Decent enough place
helpful staff
I enjoyed staying here, as both the staff and the other travelers were considerate, kind, and helpful folks. It's always nice when a place includes a free breakfast, even if it's just cornflakes & toast!

Tiny messy dorm
cheap and convenience
I spent 5 days in this backpacker hostel however I 'd not recommend you to stay there if you require a clean and comfortable environment. I booked a 3 beds female dorm but I was assigned to live with 2 other boys. The room was messy and unclean. Staff are nice. People there were all teenagers so they make noise at night. It was really cheap and the location is great if you want to live in King Cross. Anyway, the people there are fine only the rooms are too messy and tidy.

simple room, good location
convenient
overall was ok. good location near station, easy access to food anytime. only setback was the hotel guests we encountered were making too much noise even in the middle of the night!
