  • 8.0.Very good

    A bit on the dirty side. A very easy way to meet people. Overall it was okay, if you are a light sleeper I suggest not staying here it’s very loud.

    Really good breakfast. Very noisy street outside makes sleep difficult. It's also difficult to sleep because of all the hooligans who live there.

    Ótimo custo benefício

    Pelo valor proposto é um ótimo custo benefício. 1 min andando pra Kingcross Station. Supermercados, restaurantes e pizzarias em 3-5 min e próximo do centro. Obviamente n é 5 estrelas, porém atende muito bem.

  • 6.0.Good

    The hostel was not really clean especially the bathrooms but that s not necessary the fault of the hostel. However the breakfast is located in a travel agency with few places to sit. In addition you get harassed by the agency to buy a trip.
