Jackaroos is one of those backpacker holy grails of a place where you'll revel in the fun atmosphere, free brekkie, free BBQs and crazy nights out in Kings Cross. It's run by Jade and Rob who have done their fair share of backpacking and it shows. They know from experience the best things about backpacking and share them with anyone who stays. The nice thing is they are often on reception or socialising. There aren't any hidden nasty extras at this hostel, you don't have to deposit anything to get cutlery, you'll get friendly and helpful advice and you'll get free internet, woop wooop! Those who know Jackaroos, know all about the colourful and fun world of Kings Cross, right on the doorstep. The fact you can walk to Sydney city or Quay and the train station is on the doorstep to get to Bondi. Most nights Trev is leading everyone on a crazy bar crawl, with some free drinks in the bars and of course the legendary night that is Free wine Friday. It is what it says on the tin and it's bound to get messy. The hostel is really pretty central for everything in Sydney and as it's new it's really clean, even after a wild night the cleaners with their ghost buster vacuum cleaners are out and about. Yeah the rooms are quite small, mostly with no windows, but hey you can't have absolutely everything. The dorms are clean and new looking, there's plenty of toilets and showers down the corridor and the communal areas are huge. It's the sort of place you can arrive on your own and leave with friends, or turn up in a big group or as a couple and still have a brilliant time. My boyfriend and I ended up here by chance and had such a fun time we've been back to visit and when we leave Australia we're flying out of Sydney so will definitely go back there to stay. If you're just arriving in Australia this would be a great hostel to start off your trip.
