I just stayed at Jolly Swagman Backpackers Nov 19 - 25. I stayed in the private double room which is a great room especially if you want your privacy. The room was clean, it did have a strong airfreshner candle that they left in the room. There was a fan in the room which I kept on high the entire time since it got hot in the room. It was a quite floor except for the weekends when the drunks arrive late at night. The staff were friendly. There are tons of shops and restaurants in the area. It's a very quiet street which is a plus. Kings Cross station is about a 5min walk. There is a Woolworth supermarket down the road and some small delis that are open 24 hours.
The airport transfer never showed up on my departure date which was annoying. I waited outside for about 45min and I checked in with the front desk and they kept telling me he was going to come. After another 15 min I just got my money back and took a cab to the airport. I def recommend this place to whoever is traveling on a budget.
