      It was close to Darlo Theatre where I was going

      I didn't like much about it at all. I had a single room and it was basic. However what can you expect for a backpackers. It was $68.00 and that is dear. The room is on the busy street so I could here people at the hotel and night clubs in the area. Plus sirens going a lot. I did sleep however and the bed was comfortable and warm.The Bathroom was clean but not much privacy to shower as there is only a curtain not a cubicle to dry and dress. I would not stay there again as I m not into back packers. It was ok for the night and served my need although next time I will pay a little bit more and stay in a hotel where it is quieter and more comfortable and private.

      was really cheap and great location in kings cross. People there were really friendly. If you don't mind grundgy bedroom/bathroom, its great for the above.

      it was quite grimey- shared bathroom and kitchen was super dingy. Not able to use hair straightners/dryer in the room in case the fire alarm went off.

      Good backpacker hostel. Friendly and helping staff. Standard(good) breakfast in the morning. Nice activities every day.

      As a solo traveler looking for calm and quietness this place is not the best. Prefer adding $10-20 to get a real studio/room in a real hotel or apartment service.

      The whole backpacker is very dirty. Staff is not very helpful. Late check in. It was my worse experience ever. As soon as I walked in, I told myself that I need to find another place to stay but all the backpacker around are fully booked so I had to stay in this dirty Funk house for 1 night. I got bed bag all over my neck. So bad. I count have a shower because the bathroom was so dirty. Worse experience ever. Not recommended to anyone at all.

      Nothing to like about this place. Rude unprofessional staff meeting no customer needs. Couldn't even get $20 key deposit back due to the lack of any standard of business acumen or standard. Don't stay here if you read this

      The free breakfast and hour of internet. The decor is really cool and the location is nice and surrounded by places to eat and get a drink. It's close to the metro.

      The beds weren't very comfortable and they need peanut butter for breakfast! Other than that it was great!
