Liked: There's a nice lounge area to chill and stuff members are friendly. Nice and clean bed with a nice pillow in the room. It's wide a big in the 18 share room that you don't feel pressure.

Disliked: There's no mirror in a toilet I usually use...

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.
