Arrived there and it was abandoned... Paid deposit and everything. Had to stay in a hostel across the road. The 'Funk House', a nice place. They didn't even email us. Please do not book this place as you will be left clueless in the street like us.

The rooms here are bigger and and more well equipped than most other hostels in the area for the same price. The music in reception is always great fun! It's also pretty clean most of the time and in a fantastic location for bars and clubs in kings cross

I stayed here in an 8-bed dorm for five weeks in Mar-Apr '13. +: rooms cleaned daily, clean bathroom, speedy and hassle-free check-in, a lot of places to chill out and do a fat lot of nothing, some good characters running the place (one of the ladies working there was a real sweetheart, never caught her name but I remember...

We spent 3 nights here and we were so happy to leave. Worst hostel experience we made during our trip in Australia. The saved money (compared to other hostels in Sydney) had to be spend later in Port Maquarie for some ointment as my girlfriend was bitten all over by bed bugs. Luckily all Swiss have an army knife, so... More

Not quite sure how it is possible that there are any positive reviews on this hotel? Must be the owner sending them in him/herself?? I stayed here with a large group of friends, staying in a number of different rooms and room types. My room a "family room" was a clear definition of neglect and laziness by the owners and... More

Dilapidated hotel, located in the "red" district of Sydney : The bedding was stained A strange smell in the stairway Mould in the bathroom The free breakfast is only a slice of bread and butter. Forget everything else, especially cutlery, glasses, cups. We stay 2 nights in this hotel and, hopefully, no one more

I stayed at this hostel from September 2012 through to January 2012 and I loved every minute of it. Definitely the place to be if you want to meet people from all over the world and have a good social life. Laurence is the manager and he made us feel so welcome, we felt like family when it was time... More

Where the hell in that hostel they got them pictures from I do not know. The stench of B.O, cigarettes, vomit and p!ss when I opened my door was... More

We had medium to good experiences with Backpackers hostels but nothing so awful as this one. Sure that the staff was very helpful and nice but this hostel should be closed as it is abandonned (no management in place), the rooms / kitchen / lounges were all filthy and smelling bad. Furthermore, rooms were not in proper shape. It is... More

If you're looking for a REALLY wild time, then sure, this is the place to come. If not and you're just up for a bit of partying in Kings Cross and some sightseeing, like my friend and I, do not come here! We were put into an 8 bed dorm and when we got up there (after a whole day... More
