Was going to stay here for one night but ended up staying for a week. So much fun, the staff organise lots of nights out. Everyone was very friendly and easy to get along with. Rooms are fine and location was great.

Great hostel in a rather strange part of town. Was slightly scared by the area when I first got there but the hostel was nice. Good facilities and friendly staff. Stayed here two nights, but would go back.

Like most of you I too had a difficult time searching the suitable budget accommodation around Sydney as I was going there for the first time. I opted with Funk House and man it was such an amazing stay. The staffs were friendly, helpful and their positive attitude also made us feel positive. We could see that Cleanliness was prioritized...

The room was small but ok, bathrooms seemed adequate and clean, but I was most disappointed to pay the extra for a private room only to be told that the only towels were placed in a basket accessible on a first-come-first serve basis (and who'd know what time they were made available, but they were clearly long gone when we...

Maybe the name attracts all kind of dwellers, so bear in mind when going there: It can not only get funky here, but also quite noisy due to the location of the place. The hostel itself is convenient but facilities (bathroom, showers, kitchen) can get crowded so try to use them in the non-rush hours. The location is great for... More

Myself and 2 other friends stayed in Funk House for about 8weeks from dec-feb last year! Rooms were small, very warm at night where in fact we had to buy another fan(there was one in the room but it wasn't great) The plus side about this hotsel was the location, it was walking distance of the city, or just 2...

I arrived, checked in and went up to the room. I was shocked how small and dingy the room was. It was filthy (from the 2 other girls in there). Room was dark and stuffy and I would not recommend staying here. I actually left and stayed somewhere else. Upon arrival I was lectured with a long list of rules... More

The fact that it was a place for backpackers is understandable that cleanliness is not viewed as one of the more important factors. Maybe the hostel was taking advantage of such lax views on cleanliness, but the room I stayed in was a disaster- it was left in such a state of mess by previous backpackers (maybe not just one)...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights during a weekend stop in Sydney. We chose due to the location and reviews, but sadly weren't overly impressed. The good: - Location - good if you want to be in King's Cross. The hostel is between two small cafes and just off the main street so felt safe. - Staff... More
