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.

Awesome vibes, we loved taco tuesdays and all the other things (such as work offers, party locations, etc.) organised by the hostel/people in the hostel. Great breakfast, nice clean rooms and a good location make this the place to be. Also the kitchen was spacious...More
