    Cool but not for relaxing ”
    If you want to relax definitely Kings cross is not the perfect area. But if you are starting in Sydney and want to meet people and being near city center, it’s a cool place to stay.

    The manager & staff are the best!”
    We certainly love Funkhouse Backpackers! Natalia, the hostel manager is an angel, and the staff were all so nice and helpful! Only 300m away from the train station, lots of affordable cafes/ diners around, clean, complete facilities, even the sheets were of good quality. We're really happy with our stay at Funkhouse :)

    No cleanliness..Only good for location..no facilities ”
    The worst thing about the hostel is the pathetic smell in the corridors and rooms. The rooms need renovation. Cleanliness needs to be improved. The rooms have no ventilation and with only fan available the rooms are like an oven and it's difficult to sleep at night. Shared bathroom facilities needs improvement too. For solo travelers who intend to just sleep for few hours in room this hostel is good as it is a few min walk to Kings Cross station and all the nightlife and cheap bars and restaurants. Otherwise, the rooms are not comfortable at all. But if you just want to enjoy the nightlife with a limited budget for accommodation then this is not a very bad option.

    Noisy, dodgy area”
    Nice pictures on the walls. Sheets on the beds. Wifi
    Pretty Bad. It's cheap, but if it's so noisy outside that you can't sleep, it's not worth It. Don't stay here if you plan to sleep at night, the noise outside until 3am and even inside from the other occupants is ridiculous.

    wonderful as a first timer trying backpacking”
    free wifi, free breakfast, close to the metro station
    Check in was smooth and fast. Staffs are all very friendly and willing to help out and guide me if i have any questions. Free wifi all over the hotel even in your own room. Free breakfast to keep you fuel for the day. Have daily activities to ensure that the night is not boring at all. All in all it is a very good experience and i am comfortable with it. The only bad thing that i can recall is that the bar opposite my room is noisy at night but the noise stop at 8pm and starts only after 6pm therefore it is not a big issue. They also provide free airport transfer to them if you stay over 4 nights but if you want to head back to the airport it costs $12. Also they are very friendly and will provide you things if you need them such as power adapter (subject to availability).

    I didn't particularly enjoy my stay here. The place was really dirty and there was a lot of very strict rules. It was fine because I only had to stay one night but I definitely wouldn't have stayed any longer and won't be going back.
