Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 2 nights. I can point out only two good things about this hostel: staff was really friendly and helpfull and there was an uptodate tv in our double room. The list on the negative side is unfortunately much longer. Although i travelled now for more than 6 months including countries like kasachstan and mongolia the bathroom in the funk house was one of the most disgusting ones i have seen so far. The toilet looked like it has not seen a toilet brush for months and the floor was covered with toilet paper, piss and cigaret butts. Although there was a list at the toilet door where the cleaning staff kept on signing every few hours that they checked the toilet it seemed they found it to be ok because they did not clean anything.
The room is very small and the matrace is so old that you can feel every single spring. You are not allowed to use any deodorant or hairspray in the room because of the fire alarm. The night was really noisy till the morning hours because of other guests returning drunken. For all this the price of 79 AUD per night for our room is way to much. Therefore i can not recommend to stay here. I'm sure there are better choices in kings cross.
