Eva's is clean and central in the middle of Kings Cross. The property itself is quaint and clean with a lovely view of the city from the roof top. The staff are absolutely lovely and go above and beyond to help any way they can. It is a great place to meet others if you are traveling solo and you... More

Good, clean basic room. Although the size could have been a bit bigger to manoeuvre inside. Kitchen, though compact, was quite good. More importantly, the friendliness and helpful nature of the staff made us feel quite welcome.

Everything is arranged nicely. The location is good. You can go to many famous attractions on foot. The toilets are cleaned everything. There is a big kitchen with different appliances. It provides free breakfast and snack sometimes.

The bathrooms on the other hand were very nice and clean and the staff very friendly. The rooftop is pretty cool. The location is good, it is in the... More

We stayed here for three nights at the end of our trip and had a pleasant experience. The front desk lady from Belgium was very friendly and welcoming, and provided helpful tips. We stayed in a four person room on the ground floor so were able to get the wifi to work most of the time easily. The rooftop was... More

It was clean. I saw 3-4 cockroaches in 2 months time which is ok. They say there is free internet but it doesn't really work. There is never any room to cook in the kitchen because it is always full. The tv area is on the ground floor and is really small. Only 5 people can sit there. Don't get... More

My friend and I needed the cheapest rate so we could attend a week dance camp in Sydney so Agnes at reception matched the deal on Wotif.com over the phone and I got an email confirmation from Eva and Liz not long after. Everything was clean. Free sheets, towels, wifi and tea and coffee, all free. My friend forgot her... More
