"Good location, bus stop right round the corner with a free shuttle to circle quay. The free walking tour also begins down the road, and was fantastic. Private room extremely basic, but as to be expected."

Liked: Location was good. That's about it.

Disliked: Not clean. Sometime on the first evening in the "tv lounge" you'll realise that you're actually sitting on a stained beanbag on a beer stained old carpet watching tv with the sound turned off and no subtitles. This "lounge" turns into a bar playing loud music on Thurs, Fri and Sat nights, relegating the guests to their rooms or the kitchen. Fair enough they warn you about the nightclub on the Sat / Sun, but the irony of the signs by the doors telling you to "keep noise down after 11pm" while your bunkbed and the light fittings vibrate to the music untill 1am-ish is pretty surprising. Only one toilet on our entire floor for approx 22 people. There was a hairdryer in the toilet but no means to dry your hands after washing them. Kitchen was a bit skanky. Other guests tend to be long staying backpackers who have parties in the dorms on the weekends making it hard to sleep. I'd recommend either going to a better hostel in Kings Cross or shelling out a fraction more money for somewhere much better nearby.

Liked: When we arrived at the hsotel we were upgraded from and 18 bed dorn to 8 bed which was great,staff were very friendly and d rooms were large enough with a large mirror wich was great. It is very close to all touristy attractions aswel which is a plus as less public transport u can pretty much walk anywhere.

Disliked: Bathrooms-I toilet and two showers on our floor and none of these were nice ,I was there in winter so nto not too busy but in summer I would imagine it would get pretty hard to get showers. Kitchen-very small plenty of pots and pans but it could do with an overhaul aswel.
