The hostel was so fun. There is free entertainment organised every night with free drinks and food. The Blue Room was always the place to meet people before a night out. The beds were comfortable and clean. Would recommend to all!

I am not one for reviews but I thought I would make an exception for this hell hole. The only advantage was that we had some awesome room mates, which is of course to no credit of Hump. It is quite frankly, filthy. Everyone is unfriendly and can't handle their drink. I love drinking; but it was as if everyone... More

I felt a little bit uncomfortable when I just got there, maybe is because I was not familiar with it at first. Actually there are activities every night, once I joined them, I started to like this backpackers. I met some nice guys there, and all the crews there are friendly and willing to help. All the equipments I need... More

Stayed for 4 nights towards the end of November. Pros: -Staff are friendly and helpful -Easy to get into the city via bus or train. About a 30 minute walk. -Secure. The hostel is in Kings Cross which is basically the red light district! Although noisy, we felt comfortable and safe in the hostel and were happy to leave our... More

Stayed here for only one night, kings cross is a noisy area but I expected it to be quite in the hostel, unfortunately thin walls made it very difficult to sleep. The hostel has a lot of stairs to climb, and the communal facilities are lacking. Overall their is better places to stay in the cross.

We booked in advance and we walked through the front door looked around and walked back out. This is not a pleasant stay at all. Kings cross is not what you get told about when you are starting traveling and it says a lot when the taxi driver who was local even told us not to stay here. Am a... More

The Hump Backpackers is a good place to stay, above all because it's cheap and because it's just at 30 minutes walking from the city center. The room and the toilets are not very clean, but the staff is friendly and there are a lot of activities to do with other guys. There is no silence during the night because... More

I stayed here long term while I was backpacking through AUS. I absolutely loved this hostel, the atmosphere was great! It generally has a more party attitude, but the blue room (where are the drinking takes place) is a bit more closed off form the rest of the hostel. This is located on Darlinghurst rd, right in the middle of... More

This is a party hostel so there's a lot of noise every night. The people don't really respect the fact taht other would like to sleep at night. It is located near Kings Cross train station so you can get to the city centre easily with train. However the street has quite a lot of adult shops and clubs so... More
