Location is very good, 5 minutes walk to the nearest subway, bars just at the entrance.
The staff were very lovely and helpful, made our land smooth and easy!

The only cons is that some rooms are tiny and not equipped, while other are fully equipped and for the same price, so be aware of that.

Location wise this place is great, hard to beat. What let this place down for me was the fact they advertised free wifi but for the entire 5 days it did not work. I kept being told it was a fault with my laptop despite the fact that every other guest couldn't seem to log on either. The staff were simply not interested in working out the problem.
The rooms were clean, very basic but clean. What the places does need is a lick of paint though.

Also, got to add this, the cleaning lady (Maria?) was lovely and added a friendly face to the hostel that the front of house staff certainly lacked.

I really enjoyed my stay at Eva's Backpackers in Sydney. The hostel had all of the amenities needed - super safe and secure; fully-equipped kitchen; free tea, coffee and hot chocolate; lots of (and very clean) bathrooms with plenty of hot water; well sized dorm rooms with fans and personal lights and large lockers; very close to King's Cross for restaurants and transport systems to the CBD/waterfront; super friendly staff and a wonderful Ecuadorian cleaning lady who is just adorable and friendly. Only downside was that the wi-fi didn't work on my laptop or phone but there was a free wi-fi for travelers shop up the road that worked a treat. The kitchen/dining area is smaller than some but it means you do get to socialise and meet other guests in the hostel. Slightly more on the expensive side but I really liked it.

This is one of the best hostels in Sydney. Although it`s often fully booked, it`s always very clean (they have a lovely cleaning lady instead of employing lazy backpackers!). The staff is friendly and helpful. The kitchen is a bit small (especially in the evening hours, when everyone prepares dinner), but well equiped.

I stayed at this hotel for some nights at the beginning of last summer. It's in a very good position, close to Kings Cross station and not far from the Opera House. The rooms and the common kitchen weren't very big and there wasn't enough space for everyone at dinner time. There were lots of bathrooms and always clean. Unfortunately, there isn't an elevator and you have to carry your luggage to the upper floors. The place in general was ok and I had a nice stay, but I felt I paid too much for what I had!
