This hostel is definitely great for the money you pay! The events manager makes sure there is always something going on that you can get involved in and it ensures a great night out as everyone goes out together. I would say its mainly long terms that stay here as its so cheap and easy to access the city via... More

The staff is welcoming, activities are organized every day and the price is correct. But shared rooms and rooms are quite dirty... We were shocked to see that a lot of backpackers don't wash their dishes or throw their garbages!

I lived in this hostel on and off for 11 months. Every time I picked up my bags to travel I was always sad to leave and returned. It is such a social place with a great vibe which always made me come back, like many other familiar faces that returned. Staying in different hostels all over oz made me... More

Upon arrival my partner and I were made to wait in reception for 15 mins as a sign was left quoting: "Back in 5". Once the lady was back, there wasn't even an apology for the wait or a friendly welcome. Just seemed in a hurry to get us into our room... I dismissed this as I was too tired... More

Only here one night but it was the best night Sydney. The hostel staff and guests were welcoming and very helpful. So much to do in here bingo, $1 burritos, movie and finally a few drinks in the blue room with new friends. Everyone should stay here. I will be back soon. Cheers Hump Backpackers

As there's only fans, and no ac, the rooms get incredible hot, and the bathrooms look like they are falling apart. Kitchen is dirty, tiny and half the things are broken. However, they got a great room for having predrinks and socializing, and if you are looking to go to Sydney just to party a few days, it would be... More

This hostel is located in Kings Cross, only a short walk from the train station which is about all it has going for it. Kitchen is small, always sweltering. Fridges are packed with Coles cooler bags allowing no space to put your food. Kitchen is not well equipped.. crappy plastic plates and tiny cups. Free breakfast is okay, WiFi is... More

Stayed here for three nights. Staff is friendly like everyone has stated. But it's not particularly clean. The plates in the kitchen was greasy at best. The shower was ok but it takes a while to get a good temperature. The dorm was ok but not clean. Not even after they did a thorough cleaning one day. On my last... More
