    The hostel was really good!!! Very clean, bathroom very comfortable and clean with good hot shower. Hot and cold air conditioner and lockers to lock your things. Only 4 people each room, with fridge inside, very quiet. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Location is perfect! Many places to go out at night, supermarkets open till 12 am and just opposite to the train station. Great value for money

    The accommodation is located in a great place, across the road from King Cross train station. It’s a little dated and worn but after being being welcomed by Kim that didnt matter. He was very polite and nothing was to much to make your stay comfortable. If we visit Sydney in the future we would stay again

    Pros: directly opposite train station, cheapest that I could find for this location. Cons: place is old, run down, poorly maintained, saw 2 small cockroaches in the shared kitchen, hallway outside the room had a smell, bathroom door broke but was just replaced by a shower curtain which was mouldy in some areas. Room is small. There is night life in the area surrounding the lodge. Will not recommend going back late or staying here with young children. I have been staying in budget accommodations, and am not a fussy traveller. However, I will not recommend this place.

    The location is alright. Very close to train station and food shops. If you are on a super tight budget and not fussy with rooms well you might like this one. Bed and linen are ok but the room itself is too small. Carpets are not clean and very smelly. Even the shower room and toilets are not that clean. You can see the molds on the tiles in the shower room which is very slippery. AC don’t cold that much. Owner should renovate the place to make it look more appealing and could gain more customers and good reviews.
