Score from 504 reviews Good
Good location, cheap and close to everything.
The cleanliness of the bathrooms.
The maps at the desk were really good.
Not alot of space when you are sharing with five other people. Also inconsiderate roomies - I was trying to get my clothes out for the day after 8am and somomne mentioned to me that my plastic bags were really noisy. Like I can really help that. It's not my fault that she came home late. Perhaps mention to people that you need to be quiet bween 10 and 7, so when you are trying to get dressed after 8am you don't feel you're feeling inconsiderate.
Good location Value for money Have cereal breakfast
Ugly curtain that can't cover the window fully/properly There's a reception staff that really helpful when I reach, she is nice. But there's a male reception staff when I need to ask some information, I waited him talking with a girl for sometime, they were not talking hotel related thing, just some pubs/bars, and he ignore me and let me stand and wait beside them. I have to interrupt "Excuse me, I need to ask something..."
The staff was very friendly and the free Internet and breakfast were great! The atmoshpere was quite good, because a lot of events were organised.
It was a bit noisy at the weekend, but I used ear plugs which made it a bit better. The rooms I had were very messy! clothes and stuff all over the floor. The quality of the mattress was not good at all and the location wasn't clean. There were also coackroaches in the halls. Compared to other hostels, this was one of the worst.
no wifi in the dorm
Friendly foreign staff, close to city center (it's in the red light district, you may like it or not), clean.
The house is old and not really comfortable; not everything is working properly, toilet is clean but small, almost everything was dodgy.
I arrived for check in. The guy at the reception wasn't able to check me in because he had to wait for next shift or something. But instead of telling me this in a normal conversation he was much more interested in his newspaper. Never been received anywhere so badly. And frankly this is what forms opinions, the first impression.
Shower booth is narrow
kitchen over-crowded and utilities were not washed by the clients
Friendly staffs especially to Yvonne whom provide me the usefull infomation while doing the room reservation and helping me to upgrade the room. Thanks a lot Yvonne, unfortunately could not meet her while I'mstaying there.
The kitchen too small and crowded during breakfast and dinner.
value for money and good location
Staff friendly and helpful. Free transfer FROM airport. Close to bars at kings cross. Could plug usb into TV and DVD.
Dead cockroach in room. Very noisey. Shower room very cramped. Small kitchen and communal space. Expensive for what you get.
Close to kings cross bars and restaurants, close to public transport
Noisy, very cramped, run down
Location is good, especially if you like party places. Nice roof top. Wifi is included, but with data usage limit, which for most people will be enough. Also free luggage storage after checkout!
Rooms a quite small, and at least the room that i got had 2 bunkbeds, and as most people staying here are backpackers, there were no where else to keep the backpacks than on the floor, which made it hard to walk in the night time. And at day time you had to Place your luggage on your bed to make room for moving within that small room
The place is pretty close to Kings Cross station, the staff was nice and that 24h reception's pretty good, too. Plus free breakfast and wifi.
The wifi only works in the common area on ground level
There was a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. All the toilets and bathrooms were constantly cleaned and the free breakfast was a great bonus.
The dining/ lounge area are joined into one so relaxing or just chilling out while watching a movie/on the wifi was difficult at times as that was also the area people drank before they went out.
The hostel is situated at the good location. We can find everything easily. We can go anywhere easily. We can cook at the hostel kitchen.
The people who live near my room made a loud noise every night. The bathroom was out of order and it was not repaired in the short time.
Excellent location - walking distance to Botanic Gardens and Opera House. Hostel in quiet street. Attractive roof terrace/garden.
can be noisy at night.
If you prefer partying over sleeping at night, this is the place to be. You won't get a minute of sleep anyway.
The location of backpackers is very easy to get there by transportation.
1. Public bathroom is not very clean. 2. 6-Dorm room is too small to put luggage. 3. It's noisy especially on the weekend.
Tiny kitchen and totally crowded. Wifi very poor and only at the lobby. Bathroom only one per floor
Friendly staff, free wifi and breakfast, great roof terrace
The kitchen is too small,not that clean
Location and staff and breakfast
Wifi does not stretch to rooms... Needs cleaning.. Everywhere is dusty snd dirty and bathrooms grubby
Really helpful staff, especially Alastair. TV and fridge in the 4 bed girls room, really socialable atmosphere and minutes from Kings Cross station. Great cooking facilities.
Although the wifi was readily available, it was annoying that it kept logging you off, and was a bit flaky at times. There are computers that you can use for free however so only a small bugbear.
