Stayed at the Jolly for 6 days in March, a pretty nice hostel with a nice crew and kitchen facilities. Our room (a private double) was very clean as were the communal bathroom/showers.
Only issue is the location. Kings Cross itself isn't the best of areas, but at night I don't recommend women be out by themselves.
That said, the Swagman itself was a great stay in Sydney!
