King's Cross is a cheap hostels and noisy pubs area where we stayed a few nights. The only option in Sydney to settle near the center for reasonable money. There’s the subway station. We used to come home at 11 pm, but we didn't see...More

Gone are the days portrayed so graphically in " Underbelly". It's run of the mill now. Pleasant enough but nothing outstanding. Lots of restaurants, pubs and entertainment. But not a destination in itself.

Once a vibrant, active and titilating area is now just a memory. The clubs, nightlife and variety of street scenes and people are essentially gone...some might say it has been cleaned up... But what a loss for the tourist industry and the tourist dollar. Small...More

Travelled here just to say i had experienced kinga cross. To my surprise it was actually a nice clean place. It was day time very busy and lots to see. Worth a trip to have a look at.

A lot cleaner and safer than it used to be. This is a great place to explore especially if you want somewhere interesting to eat or drink.

Sydney's red light district. These new rules have
encouraged trendy cafes and boutiques to pop-up in the
