                      Good Hostel”

                      Location, Staff, Cleanliness

                      I stayed in a private room. It was clean, comfortable, and cleaned everyday. Like most hostels, the loos were down the hall and spotlessly clean. There was a good sized kitchen for self-catering. The staff was exceptional in every way. The location could not be better. Any closer to Kings Cross and you would be in the station. Be sure to stay for quiz night and enjoy the company of fellow travellers. One note of caution for anyone with impaired mobility, It is about five stories from the kitchen to the top floor and there is no lift. For the rest of us, we can get our daily exercise. The street can be a bit sketchy late at night, not to mention noisy on the weekends. I would return without hesitation.

                      Location excellent. Exactly at the king cross station stop. There were mini Marts around. Restaurant walking distance. Near Coles. Stay was good. Bed was comfortable. The place and kitchen were clean. My only thoughts of improvement was that kitchen should be opened 24 hours. And please put up signs if the tap water is drinkable. The other hostel I stayed had that signs around. So I didn't buy water. Water is expensive in Australia

                      Great access to the top party spots in Kings X. Literally only a few feet from the subway entrance. Location is amazing, price is cheap. Very clean and safe/secure. That said, it's a backpackers hostel. Very basic, but nice. Lockers have outlets in them to charge your electronics (AWESOME idea!), but are not accessible after 10pm. Jackaroo worked awesome for what I was looking for, a cheap room right in the middle of the party.

                      Great hostel in a perfect location next to the Metro station and bars/ nightclubs. Rooms were clean and tidy, only downside is they come in three/ four times in the morning to clean! Free internet is great and not common in Sydney, very social hostel with pool table/ football table, TV room and regular social events.

                      Just a few steps away from King's Cross Station, Darlinghurst exit. Stayed on a 4-person dormitory (bathroom inside), with an affordable price. Small point to notice, the electrical socket is not easily reachable for person taking the top of bunk bed.

                      It was alright compared to what you can find in Sydney for the same price. The triple room we booked was super small though and very humid, with a sticky floor and the view from the window was an inside "yard" full of rubbish and underwear. The toilet/shower had a lot of mold inside and felt old. The commun rooms (kitchen, living room) were alright and big enough for everyone. What we preferred was the great location, couldn't be closer to Kings Cross !

                      Clean toilets, clean rooms and friendly staff.

                      It was a good experience of dorm life. Staff were friendly and helpful especially Riquell(pardon spelling if wrong), giving suggestions as to where to and how to go to places. They have activities frequently as well. Toilets were clean and they have free wifi and free internet usage with good speeds as well. However, do take note that it is all up to one's luck to see who your dorm mates are. Especially when it is located right in a night time/club area, there were instances where a drunkard returned to his room in the middle of the night shouting. Moreover, there is a fair number of longstayers staying there as well, so if you are sensitive to hygiene, do try and request to not be placed in the same room as them. Ultimately, it is not the hostel's fault for those aforementioned problems as it is an expected experience for a dorm life. It is still an amazing hostel to stay in if you are just there for a few days. The location is right NEXT to a train station and many bars and restaurants, so it is definitely recommended to stay there.

                      Great location hostel”

                      Hostel is just adjacent to the King's Cross Station with exit facing Darlinghurst street. AC broke down when I arrived for the first of 3 nights stay. Have to open room to let fresh air in. Staff said they would bring a fan then but didn't TV in room wasn't fixed despite my complaint that it was not working. The AC worked on the following day but the centralized AC only blew little air so it only solved the problem a bit. Disappointing here despite my complaint and adjusted only on the 3rd day. Room on the 3rd floor and no lift so if you're bringing a big heavy luggage on a narrow stairway would be a problem. Bed is just so-so unlike other hostels that I have been to. 4 bathroom in the hallway seems adequate with good hot water and pressure but seems outdated as some fixtures showed rust. Breakfast was average with various cereals, muesli, toast, milk and jams and jellies. Some staff were not helpful while some were. Overall just a fair hostel that would be around 5-6 stars out of 10.

                      Location Transport Kings Cross

                      To my surprise, this Hostel is just next to Kings Cross Station, i mean JUST NEXT DOOR!! I do not need to walk so far to check-in, i'm so happy as i have a very heavy backpack. Everything is fine, pay deposit for room key and locker key AUD 30, reasonable speed free wifi, complimentary breakfast: cereals, milk, bread and spread, everything is good. Except for one thing... while i'm busy on the toilet bowl i need to standup few times and move around in the bathroom just to keep the lights alive, as they are controlled by sensor! Lol...

                      Good location;room not very clean”

                      Location of the hostel is very good, just right next to the king cross train station; it is convenient to go to martin place. The room is okay, not too small but also not to big; my friend and I are using the shared bathrooms which is definitely not clean - it is actually quite dirty, and the light always auto turned off due to the motion sensor.

                      localisation, clean, nice staff

                      This hostel is well organised and clean. However its a bit noisy overall because of the animated main road. the first dorm was so messy because of 3 people living here on a long term with all their stuff. Hostel maintenance is not perfect but like most of hostel.

                      Toilets are unisex and smells horrible, like pee, even If they clean it. Kitchen is also a mess, I would say too small for the amount of people in the hostel. Rooms are fine. The best part about this hostel is the location, just beside Kind Cross station. Breakfast is also good enough.

                      Location, great pillows, action central

                      Ive stayed in the 4bed pvt ensuite room before & will again. My only beef is that whenever someone in bed moved, the other bunks shook as they sit touching each other. No lockable units unfortunately. Great wifi. Fantastic pillow. I don't mind kings cross & noise doesn't bother me as I wear ear plugs. My fellow guests this time around were filthy - leaving water everywhere & bandaids in the shower! They also unplugged the fan to charge phones as there are no sockets next to each bed (nor light!) so that's something for management to think about. Otherwise I'm always happy to stay here.

                      The only thing I liked about this place was a good location: it's located just in 1 minute walk from the King Cross train station. The room looked shabby and not so clean, with no furniture, just a bed. Small window with old torn curtains. Nothing else to add...
