Kings Cross
Changing liquor laws are remodeling "The Cross," Sydney's red light district. These new rules have encouraged trendy cafes and boutiques to pop-up in the area, as well as organic markets on Saturdays. The area's nightclubs are still popular with youngsters, however, who will dance to the early morning hours on weekend nights. There are plenty of artifacts from Kings Cross' shady past when gangsters and liquor houses owned the place. Today, one can still find a variety of adult entertainment venues in this evolving area.

The rooms are ok, but nothing special, the bed is just a rack! Ok for 2-3 nights, yes maybe you get used to it. The hostel looks very dirty and the kitchen is really bad, too small for so many people! The bathroom is not the cleanest, but ok, the staff is very nice and helpful!

This hostel is in a good location in Kings Cross. It is lively and a good price if your looking for a cheap stay. People are complaining about not getting to sleep here, but it is a sort of party hostel, so it should be expected. If you are looking for a good time and to meet

"Bring a padlock and be patient with the WiFi"
"Just book it ;)"
"I would recommend a room from the backside because they are not that noisy as the ones facing to the street. The wifi works best on lower levels but the rooms on the top levels are more quiet."
"Lower floors have better internet connection."
"if you want a quiet room stay on the top floor"
