    Cosy small hostel centrally located in Kings Cross

    I spent a few nights at the Asylum Sydney and can recommend this hostel although its furniture is a bit long in the tooth. That i enjoyed my stay is primarily due to the fact that the staff were very friendly and helpful and the mix of the guests was very pleasant and due to the small size of the hostel you easy make contact with other guests. Other benefits are plugs for every bunk, locker on the room and free but simple breakfast.

    Mahtava henkilökunta, hostellin kunto huono

    Hostellin palvelutaso on 5/5, respan henkilökunta on mukavin jonka olen tavannut. Arvosanaa vähentää kuitenkin huoneiden mukavuus, sillä siisteys ontuu, sängyt ovat melko huonot ja kattotuuletin ei riitä viilentämään kehoa lämpimänä yönä, selkä liimautuu liian isoon aluslakanaan jne. Ikkunasta kantautui kadun elämää (huutoa ym) keskellä yötä. Yhteistilat ovat melko pienet. Sijainti on hyvä 100m päässä juna-asemasta.
