    Mad monkey king's cross is a clean hostel and has amazing staff. I met amazing people there. Those who are saying it's not clean probably haven't travelled a lot. The kitchen might need a bit of love but to me, everything was perfect.

    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,
    however, who will dance to the early morning hours on
    weekend nights. There are plenty of artifacts from
