          Nice hostel, what makes it the free breakfast and free wifi for a relatively cheap price. Lots of workers here so it's not as social as it could be. Kings Cross is a good location too, close to trains not far into the CBD

          Pretty good hostel. Beds are good and clean. Aircon in the room. Lockers available. Enough kitchen facilitys. There are a lot of people living there temporary while they work in the area, that makes it a less social hostel, but still overall fine.

          Changing liquor laws are remodeling "The Cross,"
          Sydney's red light district. These new rules have
          encouraged trendy cafes and boutiques to pop-up in the
          area, as well as organic markets on Saturdays. The
          area's nightclubs are still popular with youngsters,
