  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
very basic

For a three star hostel we expected a lot more, the bottom bunk sheets were dirty it’s on a very noisy road there’s no lifts so if you’re on top floor you’ve gotta get your luggage up and down by yourself and bring all your bedding down at the end of your stay. My sister also got locked in the bathroom at 2am! There’s also a weird smell in the corridors

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Convenient location and price but that’s all.

The bathrooms and lifts were all out of order and continental breakfast was just toast with jam or peanut butter. Bed was clean everything else wasn’t and beer cans and mess everywhere in common areas and a lot of info was not mentioned online that was needed in person. And plugs were unreachable to top bunks and vending machines were empty and staff member at checkin was confused and uninformed. But checkout was easy and quick with nice girl at end. Wouldn’t go back unless desperate

  • Liked: Staff & service

Right next to Kings Cross station, close to Woolies, cafes. Walking distance to Oxford Street, then into city area. Breakfast part of deal. Getting to your room means a steep stair climb. Accommodation is adequate and reflects the price. Have stayed twice and will stay again.
