About Mad Monkey Backpackers Kings Cross

Mad Monkey Backpackers Kings Cross was fully renovated in 2016 by young new owners. We now have the perfect mix of a "party hostel" combined with modern facilities and passionate staff. Our entertainments staff create an amazing atmosphere so please only stay here if you like to socialise with like minded travellers.

Our kitchen boasts two brand new ovens, an 8 burner cooktop and 3 commercial fridges for food storage along with 2 solid oak dinning tables to enjoy dinner alongside mates.

Our events staff organise fun nights out every night of the week including bar crawls, party buses, pub golf, beer pong nights, rooftop BBQ's at our sister hostel and free drink deals with free entry to local clubs.

For nights in we have a large lounge room with a big screen TV, Cable/Foxtel and a selection of movies.

Dorms are freshly painted with brand new timber floors making them super clean. Every bed has a free large security locker (bring your own padlock) and free linen.

If you are looking at continuing your travels up the coast we have a full time travel agent who does heavily discounted East Coast trips at a much cheaper rate than the local shop based agents so just ask at reception.

Reception hours are 8am – 8pm

Kings Cross evenings are where the real fun begins! Our night time events staff have a jam packed schedule with free entry and a free drink at various hand picked bars/clubs every night of your stay.

On Xmas day we will come together as a hostel. We will head down to the famous Bondi Beach to celebrate a traditional Aussie Xmas with your new Mad Monkey Family :)

On NYE we will take you to a great local Sydney park, We will drink and play games during the day and then watch Sydney’s famous NYE fire works from the waters edge. Our three hostels will meet with other hostels creating an awesome group of a few hundred backpackers.

On the 02 Jan some of our guests choose to stay on and some continue on their travels. For the ones leaving we all get together and send them off in style by throwing a massive party to complete this package.

Backpackers each year forge long lasting friendships/relationships during this period. It is a special time for our hostel as everyone is living and partying together for an extended period of time which creates a simply amazing experience.
