      Well located and fabulously lively, always some sort of entertainment going on or available with fun events every evening with the ever-friendly and helpful staff. A large range of rooms available and cooking possible in the fully equipped kitchen. Prices reasonable and rooms are cleaned often (possibly daily - can't remember).

      Beware the long term stays

      The hostel probably reflects its major clientele--the long term working holiday workers: a deposit for a bowl for breakfast, dim common rooms, 10 bed dorms that seem more like flatshares complete with a lived in dingy feel and all the resentfulness of 10 strangers forced to tolerate each others' existence due to their involuntary poverty.

      I say find yourself another place that at least turns over beds every few days, if only to avoid the mash up of dirty laundry, bits and ends of crockery and damp sheets.

      The hostel is dirty, there was a free breakfast but we didnt even consider eating there, we stayed one night as the rest of kings cross was fully booked as it was the xmas holiday season - we had people smoking in our rooms all day, bottles of water filled with old fag butts, then on return to the room we had our room mates smoking weed! not a great experience here - it says its a party hostel but its not its a dirty disgusting hell hole full of wasters! Wouldnt recommend this to my worse enemy! hahaha!

      We got to our apartment in Sydney around 4pm in the afternoon and were met by the owner and his 5-year-old son, Alister. The two were quite a pair as Bert, the owner, looked to be about 55 with earrings, and Alister was a rambunctious but cute 5 year old. During the course of our meeting, we learned ...

Everyone was very appreciative and totally gone on the music. When I was packing up Hossain exclaimed, “They loved you!”

      “I knew if I had my chance,” I told him, “that I could make those people dance and maybe they’d be happy for a while.”

      Our first job was for Streets Ice Cream (that’s Walls to you in the UK). We were roped into it by a recruitment agency who told us that the deal (a free freezer for shops, contract free, if they bought a starter stock of ice cream) would sell itself and that, although we would likely make 2 sales per day, there was no hard sell required. ...
