We booked into this hostel for 4 nights as it was cheap. We stayed in a 14 bed mixed dorm. This would've been okay but the room was not big enough for 14 people and there wasn't enough storage for all their stuff so everything was on the floor. That wasn't too bad though as we're fairly messy ourselves. To... More

We stayed only a night at this place but it was one night too much for us. If you are a party animal who doesn't mind sleeping in a cockroach-infested place where the beats never really die out, then this is the place for you. However, if you just want budget accommodation where "silence after midnight" still has some meaning,... More

Brados is one of the premier party hostels in kings cross!! Has an absolute beast sound system in the common room and a tv room with hard drive and ps3 for when you want to relax. Kitchen is quite decent and rooms have air conditioning as well. Staff are friendly and has a great atmosphere!!

I stayed at Brados for 4 nights in total. It was dirty and I had heard rumours of cockroaches but I never saw any. It was very loud, but I'm sure all hostels are on kings cross. I liked the hostel, there were lots of single travellers, so it was easy to meet new people. While I was there there... More

I have stayed in well over 30 hostels and this by far the worst place I have ever seen! Yes it is very cheap but it is also very dirty. I didn't even stay even though I booked two nights because the place was so horrendous. It has never been cleaned, when I walked into my room there was other... More

Brados is the worst place I have ever stayed. Everyone living there is either an alcoholic or drug addict. If you like bed bugs and cockroaches then this is the place for you. Ever thought of becoming a stripper or drug dealer? You are in luck because that is what the area is all about. I would rather stay in... More

Fortunately we two girls had to stay at Brado's only for one night. . Where should I start. . When we came into the hostel to book our room there were lots of people standing around the reception and no one seemed to work there. When we came back the other day to check in into our 8-bed-dorm we wanted... More

Brado's is the cheapest hostel I could find in Sydney. It's not the cleanest hostel but it is by far the best! I had so much fun. I stayed for 2 weeks and loved every minute of it. It really felt like home. The people there are great. I made some life long friendships that I will cherish always. Located... More
