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

Bathrooms r clean enough but could be doing with some work done. Kitchen can get a little busy at nights but other times is ok. Good free things especially pancakes on sundays. I... 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

Hello guys :) I have to share my experience with you all. I was staying in an expensive and boring hostel around Sydney city early june this year then a week later I decided to go to Kings Cross and find some more fun and nice people. Guess what, I stayed at Hump for more than 3 weeks and made... More

This hostel was terrible. We stayed 10 nights. The first shower I had the tap literally fell off the wall when I was turning it shooting out a freezing cold jet of water. I had to stand there and hold the tap over the water to stop it shooting out all over the bathroom while the one staff member sorted... More

This was the first hostel my friends and I stayed in since arriving in Australia, we booked to stay 4 nights and ended up staying for over 2 weeks. Having travelled down the East Coast I can safely say Hump is still my favourite hostel, ever! The staff are so friendly, and you are guaranteed to meet some amazing friends... More

Very professional and courteous staff and very helpful. They go out of their way to help you with what you need and are very friendly. Most places treat you like another guest this place treats you like family. They have tons of activities that go on to help guest save money and to get to know other guest.

Everyone is friendly (staff and guest). This is the most sociable hostel I've stayed in so far. You will definitely make friends here. The hostel have events on everyday/night. However a lot of the people who stay here are long term lodgers. So if you are only there for a short period of time you can feel left out a... More
