When I first arrived me and my friend clean our room and bathroom top to bottom, we had no air con. The manger (dan) chucks out people just for the fun of it and does nothing around the hostel! If the manager actually done some work this would be a great hostel.. It's in a great location near central, yes kings cross isn't great but nightlife right on your door step and Potts point is lovely area for coffees and lunch... I also made some great friends here but I would only go back if the management was changed!
