Stayed for 4 nights last week and loved it. It's really clean and well kept. There's a big tv room with loads of movies available to watch. Another lounge area at reception with 4/5 computers and a TV with a games console (not sure what type!) The kitchen is a little small but it has everything you need including an... More

I stayed here for a week in November while trying to find a job in Sydney. The hostel itself is very clean and housekeeping do the rooms every day. The kitchen is a little small but has everything you need, including an oven and there is a lovely roof terrace, if you’re willing to climb the many levels of stairs!... More

Stayed here as a couple for 3 nights. Overall it was a great stay, good for our needs. Couple of big downsides that are important to mention...bear with me! Pro's: - free wifi (works brilliantly) and computer use, in a nice lounge area. 4 bed dorm room was small but had a window and fan, so was cool at night.... More

loved it here and would definitely recommend it. Great location and short walk from city, Kings cross isn't as bad as some of the stories I had been told! Staff are really friendly and helpful and the wifi is good. Only negative is the kitten was rarer small and no hot water for washing up?! Other than that I had... More

We stayed for two nights at jackaroo. The location is conveniently close to the station and the free wifi is fast. However, we stayed in a room on the second floor with only a matted skylight that didn't open. There was no aircon and no ventilation. I've been to Malaysia and slept in rooms with aircon but this was far... More

I only stayed a couple of nights here, but I had an awesome stay! The staff were friendly and helpful, the security was great, and being right next to the train station was very convenient. Also, the free breakfast (toast with fixins and cereal) was a huge plus!! There was a pretty big problem though. I stayed in a room... More

I've stayed in many hostels around Sydney, and this has the best value for money. Despite it's reputation Kings Cross is a decent area with plenty of shops and places to go and of course being next to the station is a huge plus. The staff are all lovely, reception friendly and will always go the extra mile to make... More

Me and my friend stayed in a 4-bed dorm and we were the only ones in the room. So we had the room to ourselves. A very very reasonable priced hostel. Good location as it was right next to the train station, so you will not get lost to find the hostel. Wi-fi and breakfast are free. Reception was nice... More

I booked a standard double room. The size of the room is comfortable for me, and it is very clean. The room is on top floor, by the street. The noises didn't bother me at all, put on ear plug when I want to sleep. The hostel is awesome, clean, and maintained well, they just finished re-painting the hand rails!... More

We had a fairly pleasant stay here, but Kings Cross is not the best area. Good points were; the hostel was right next to the train station, the staff were pretty friendly and free breakfast and free wi-fi were included. The bad points were that the place smelt very strongly of bleach when we got there (which was a bit... More
