Was awful place, very dissapointed.
Was dirty and smelt, room was only supposed to hold 6 and was 8 beds in it, couldnt move, bed bugs too! Had to sleep with backpack on the bed as no where to put it. staff unfriendly and unhelpful, no pick up from bus station even though said they would. Checked out 5 days early and lost a lot of money as had to pay beforehand but was not spendin christmas there! Im not just moanin for the sake of moanin- spoke to many people who thought was awful too- just wanted to warn people!!

An excellent hostel located in a great location near the city centre and Opera house, Fantastic views of the harbour bridge from the rooftop. Very helpful staff and the Free pickup from the airport was a great help.
Very comfortable rooms with a clean kitchen and TV room, Free breakfast every morning was nice too. We will be back.

I booked a triple room over the net found that all aspects of the service were fine.
The room was tidy and adequate and the location was great.
Any one who wants a good centrally located hostel close to kings cross, this would be a good choice.
