“Brados is the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

I originally booked to stay here for just a week and have now been here 2 months, the staff are amazing and so friendly and there is always something to do, the rooms are really cheap and good value for money and you get breakfast included too which is a bonus! There is always help avaliable if you need it and everyone is very approachable. Brados is definitely the best hostel in Sydney! If you are looking for a good time and to meet some amazing people I would definitely recommend staying here!!

I stayed at Brados backpackers for about a month and I loved it. Its really close to the city, surrounded by a lot of good places to party.
The people are so nice and you get the feeling of that you are a family! Everyone are so friendly and helpful, no matter what you need help or info about. Feels really like a family!

After booking in here for 3 days we ended up staying 2 weeks! The staff we're fab and a night out that provided free drinks and entry was arranged almost daily! Easy to meet people. In a good location in the hub of kings cross. price was unbelievable and you can take in your own alcohol which is always a plus! The manager is fab and thanks for all the suggestions you gave us for the rest of out east coast trip. if we're ever headed to sydney again id choose this hostel above others ive stayed at in sydney...hands down!

Honestly i stayed in over 15 hostels in my 3 month trip in aus and i reckon that brados was top 2 forsure, lets put it this way, this is the only hostel im writing a review for. the rooms are pretty chill and not over priced. the ppl u meet there are hoinestly some of the nicest coolest ppl i have ever met. first day there me and my mate were a little shy, but by the first night we were talking to everyone having a blast. you will deal with lots of stupid boring ppl when u travel and stay at hostels but u wont haev to worry about that if your staying at brados. i would definetly reccomend staying there especially if your traveling alone, if not, still go there cause u and your mates will not regret it !

Room Tip: go with the 6 person ensuite, u get your own bathroom and there is only 6 of you in the room, its li...

Stayed here in Jan for 4 nights. Reception staff was nice but everything was old,broken or dirty.Also a very noisy hostel as right in the middle of the red light district of Sydney . Also not too happy with having to leave a $10 deposit for a dirty plate,cup and cultrey. Overpriced for facilites would not stay here again if i was honest.

Very cheap, very friendly and very safe. I'd definately recommend Brados for anyone looking for a fun time at rock bottom prices. Great group of people in the dorm and the staff couldnt be anymore friendly and outgoing. Enjoy!

Brados Backpackers is a place I can call my home in Sydney. If I had to recommend a place to stay for any person of any nationality, it would be this accommodation located in the vibrant heart of Sydney, Kings Cross. My stay here started a year ago when I signed a contract working for the Commonwealth Bank. The room I stay in is cheaper than any apartment in Sydney would have been, and I wouldnt trade it off for the world. The atmosphere is great and the staff and guests are a good laugh. I would trust any of these people with babysitting my children, and all of them are welcome in my home in Berlin. The hygenic standard lives up to the general expectations of guests, and cleanliness ratings on e.g. Hostelworld are way above average. The rooms are well equipped, exceeding expectations with spaciousness and large fridges in every room. The kitchen facilities enable several groups to cook simultaneously.
I cannot imagine any reasons for someone to be unhappy with this accommodation.
