KINGS CROSS, Pimps, prostitutes and vagrants haha. Great experience and luckily we had a nice place to stay, near the train station just in case we needed to leg it from any local pimps. Didn't stay very long only a week but thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Best place to stay in the area!!!

I really enjoyed the stay in this hostel, everyone is nice and it's quite clean too. Breakfast is also good, and it's free ;) You can use the wifi without paying and there are also some PC's available to go online! the only bad point is that you can't open the windows in the rooms! I will definitely come back!

It's located at a ex-red light district so there's a lot of pubs, occasionally there's drunk people walking around. Quite scary I would say. Wouldn't recommend for families with kids or elderly. Shared toilets quite clean. No elevator so I had to carry my luggae up to the third Storey which is the top floor with the help of the... More

Stayed here for 2 months while i was in Sydney. Really loved it! I made so many friends. Highly recommended if you're a solo traveller. I left here after my first week to stay in a *fancier* hostel. Mistake. Was right back there after. Don't let the location of King's Cross turn you off (if you're new to Sydney). I... More

Very clean and safe hostel, with an extremely dishy owner. I have stayed in this hostel for around 11 months enjoying living in a clean hostel with good/interesting night life surrounding the hostel. Also the use of the roof top terrace comes in handy if you are a smoker. Also the hostel has to tortoises, just saying.

Booked jackaroo on hostel world from New York and didn't know what to expect as is the case with most of these things. When I arrived the welcome couldn't have been warmer, and what was booked as a weeks stay ended up being over 4 months. The hostel is the cleanest I've ever stayed in and the standard of the...

Extremely friendly and helpful staff, well located for bars and adult entertainment ;) Always clean, free WiFi, Playstation 3 to play with for free, too, which is awesome and free breakfast. Right next to the Peter Pans Travel Office as well. Absolutely recommendable!

Not secure at all. - Bathroom equipment looks like it can break any moment, windows without handles, etc. - Kings Kross is a red light district of Sydney and on Saturday it gets really loud.

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we are glad you enjoyed the location, free breakfast and our friendly staff. We have a pest control contract in place which which does an excellent job at keeping pests at bay. Unfortunately being in Australia in the warmer months, one can sometimes slip through though. As soon as... More
