    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!

    ... diligently saving up our money ready for the big move. Not long after we’d made the decision, and about a year before we were due to leave, I was diagnosed with an inflammatory bowel disease called Crohns. For the first 12 months it was quite mild and manageable. We were told that with medication I should find something to keep it under control and that the move could still go ahead. We kept the plans alive as long as we could, including right up to ...

    ... the Sydney harbour bridge as it sent fireworks over the harbour. Not for the first time in the past 4 months I felt euphoric! Once the fire works ended at about 12:20 we all gave each other a manly embrace and wished each other a happy New Year and then we all had 5 minutes on our own as we watched the scurry of people head home, or to a drinking establishment. I think we were all reflecting in some way, by that point my brain had switched off, I didn't need to be sober anymore, my ...

    ... for breaky at Gloria Jean's across the street with Cam and enjoyed some highly recommended Tim Tam Frappe. Tasty, but bit pricy, and I'd say it was better than Starbucks! We split ways afterwards as I needed to find myself something cheap to keep track of time, and at this age of time it's harder than you think! I wanted a digital watch but they were all at least $30, and small alarm clocks were just nowhere to be found. I walked all over town and finally found a small ...
