After staying at Jackaroo in Mission Beach, I came to Sydney and went straight to Jackaroo in Kings Cross because I was so pleased with the MB hostel. The Sydney Jackaroo has the best location for transport, located upstairs from the train station (great for work commute and seeing the city), but also is surrounded by places to eat and... More

I came to Australia on my own and Jackaroo was the first hostel I have ever stayed at! The staff behind reception were so friendly from the beginning and answered all my questions and gave me advice whenever I needed it! I made friends in my room immediately and when my friend from home came to join me at the... More

The hostel is clean, stuff is very friendly, located just next to the metro station. Nearby the are lots of places to eat and you can also bring your own food to the hostel citchen and cook there. Breakfast is quite simple but enough to start your day (as I said you can also cook by yourself).

I shall start off with the positives. The hostel is clean, has free wifi (which is rare in oz) and slap bang in the middle of kings cross so if enjoy going out it's the perfect location. However I was appalled by the behaviour of the manager, I think his name was Rob. A few people referred to him as... More

This hostel is very convenient as it is located just beside the King Cross Station, which allows us to travel to the city and Bondi Beach easily. Also, do not worry too much that it is in the red light district, just take a train back and you won't have to walk on the street. The noise level is also... More

The hostel could not be more convenient as it is located directly next to Kings Cross Station. The hostel was clean and secure. The staff were cleaning daily. It had a large kitchen for self catering. Hostel goes will especially appreciate the spotless bathrooms. Two notes: The hostel has six floors and no lift. I was on the top floor... More

Just came back from staying at Jackaroo, which was recommended by Peter Pan Adventure Travel. Just arriving from Melbourne, I was tired and just wanted to rest; the location of Jackaroo is very convenient, as it is located literally right beside King's Cross station. In Melbourne, I was staying in a seedy hostel that reeked of foot odour, so I... More

Very dirty, no ventilation, noisy, not secure. Staff not very friendly. The most horrible hostel I have ever stayed! never again! it's better to spend a night in a park then there.The only convenience was the location.

Hi, Thank you for your review. We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We are shocked that you did not find our hostel clean, we clean the whole hostel between 10am-1pm everyday and have a professional cleaning company clean the toilets daily. We also clean the bathrooms, common areas and kitchen multiple times throughout... More
