This it's to be a friendly fun hostle but recently the owner has become aggressive and power mad throwing people out for fun. If you wish to have a fun and enjoyful time in Sydney and not be harassed by the owner (Mo) stay else where. Previous long stayer.

Unfortunately we stayed in the hostel for about a week. In two parts. First few days we had a double room with a window, telly and a small desk. Space around the bed was, well almost nothing. Luckily we had like a double bunk bed. So we could store our suitcases on the upper bed. There were cockroaches everywhere, so... More

This is by far the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. The only positives were the location and free eggs for breakfast. The room was small and smelt like somthing had died mixed with sweat which I presume is down to the fact it was so hot in there. There were two toilets one of whoch did not lock.... More

I stayed here for three days in a private room and could not wait to leave. the only good thing about this place is that it is close to Kings Cross Station, but other than that there is not much else There is one pot in this hostel, and out of the eight ring burners, one works. The rest are... More

The good thing about this hostel is cheap and very convenient to King Cross station, also they provide good free breakfast like eggs, cereals, milk, orange juice and toast! The bathroom are decent clean too each and every floor also and enough for every room in each floors, so no waiting issues. But the bedroom is a huge failure, the... More

You'd think by reading many of these reviews that people were expecting Four Seasons service. This is a hostel, not some five star hotel! Im currently staying here (fifth night, moving out to permanent housing tomorrow) and have been generally pleased. I'm staying in a room on the first floor. My room is clean and the bed is of a...

VERY rude staff, poor Internet, unclean 'do not refund cash deposits in cash' policy - only by credit card and you have to pay a deposit for plates and mugs otherwise you cannot eat the breakfast you have paid for! And to top off our horrendous stay...Our room key deposit was never returned despite numerous emails. DO NOT STAY HERE.... More
