Good Hostel near by the subway.
Clean Room, Shower and toilet - Hight speed WiFI - Near by Subway, bars and restaurants.
This hostel is a good place to socialize : Every evening the staff arrange for the guests special diner and party with cheap diner & drinks and activities in the bars and restaurants near by the hostel. You can easily go to different areas in the city thanks to the subway station very close to the hostel.

Good value for money
Wifi and breakfast. Free airport transfer.
Friendly and helpful service. There were quite a few that seemed to have stayed there for a while already.A strong family atmosphere. It was also safe despite being in kings cross, as there were passwords and keys to every door to your bed. I would definitely go there again if im visiting sydney.

Auberge jeunesse Conviviale, Propre et bien situé
Bon accueil, conviviale, propre et bien équipé
Auberge située à 10 minutes à pieds de la City, dans le quartier animé de Kings Cross, mais à l'écart des rues bruyantes. Les jeunes à l'accueil sont sympas et serviables. L'auberge est dans un bon état. Le petit déjeuner est gratuit. Pour moi le seul point négatif, c'est la petite taille des chambres !!!

4人の共同部屋は綺麗だったが、シャワールームは最悪。 着替える場所がないので、同性には素っ裸が見られます。シャワーとそれ以外の場所に仕切りがないので、履き物や着替え・タオルなどはビニール袋に入れて置かないとビショビショに。掃除をしている様子もなく、とても不衛生です。 簡単な朝ご飯が付いていますが、8時~なので朝早くにホテルを出発したい場合には利用できません。チェックアウトの時間も8~10時と短いため、もっと早く出たい場合は事前にアーリーチェックアウトの手続き(前日の21時頃が締め切り)が必要。 毎日夜遅くまでゲーム,パーティーをやっているようなので、そのような雰囲気が好きで混ざれる人は楽しいかも。 私が宿泊した際は1泊5000円したので、同じ値段でもっといいところに留まれたと思いました。

바퀴벌레나오는 객실 그러나 친근한 사람들
무료와이파이, 무료조식, 친근한 사람들, 번화가에 위치
저렴한 가격에 걸맞는 호스텔이었어요. 진짜 기어다니는 바퀴벌레를 봤어요;;계단밖에 없고, 아침은 빵,쨈,버터, 땅콩버터, 후레이크, 우유가 나왔구요. 옥상에는 가보지 못했어요. 그러나 사람들이 매우 친근하고, 또 친절했어요. 또한 와이파이가 공짜!!! 게다가 잘 터지는 편이었구요. 숙소에 갈때마다 번화가를 지나가게 되는데 주말에는 클럽가는 사람들이 정말 많더군요. 하이드 파크나 보타닉파크로 가기도 편했는데...뒤늦게 알아서 샛길로 못가본게 좀 아쉬워요.
