Located in the Kings Cross area, this hostel provides easy access to a grocery, the metro, clubs/bars etc. The staff was very friendly and will help out if you are unsure what to do. There is a good party atmosphere about the place, but they also do a decent job of keeping noise levels down later in the evening. On top of that, the hostel offers nightly activities, which provide a great chance to meet the other people staying there.
My one complaint would be that the kitchen is a bit small and only has one sink, which makes it hard to cook at peak times. It is slightly more expensive then the bigger hostels in Sydney, but the smaller size and better atmosphere make up for the cost.
