We stayed for 5 nights in mid July after arriving in Sydney for a 6 week trip up to Cairns. Staff were friendly and organised, running a tight ship to ensure bathrooms (good number per bedrooms) and the kitchen were clean and tidy and that guests respected this. The kitchen was small yes but some self organisation around meal times...

Big hostel with a lot of rooms on different floors. Therefore really small kitchen and common area, totally crowded during dinner time. Two big fridges were a plus. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm with bathroom. Room was ok, big lockers, comfy beds, bathroom cleaned daily. Roof terrace is nice. Washing machines and dryers available. Staff was mostly friendly, but...

Great hostel in a very good location, close to the station. Room and bathrooms were clean and thank you for the free hot drinks - the best cup of tea we have had in 6 weeks! The bathrooms were spotless and a good ratio of bathrooms to guests - didn't have to wait longer than a few mins to get...

I would highly recommend this hostel. I had a private room with my partner and it was spotless. The bathrooms and common areas were never dirty and it's obvious that the employees take it seriously. We had one cockroach in our room, but it was no bother and it was removed immediately. The kitchen area can be crammed at times...

I stayed at Eva's Backpackers with two friends over Easter for 2 weeks. We LOVED it. The staff made us feel at home from the moment we stepped in. The place was clean and there were so many homely touches that made you feel comfortable and welcome. You can tell its a hostel run by women! We arrived to free...

Good location, great rooftop view of the city. Thanks to the lovely women running the place. Friendly & helpful service. Very close to train station, busses and plenty of diners. The space was adequate, the bunks were comfortable enough, the kitchen was adequate. Thanks (to the day staff, Yasmine & the other girl) for your friendly hospitality.

This place is utterly fabulous. Friendly staff - good rooms and big beautiful bathrooms. We came to this hostel seeking refuge from the awful place we'd stayed the night before and the man at the desk was very sympathetic. As we had to spend the day washing all our belongings after a bed bug run in we were unable to...

We stayed at the hostel for three nights. The location was very good, but the rooms quite small. Also the bathrooms where quite dirty ... cleaning once a day isn't enough at a crowds place like this. The subway was very close by, so you can reach the City very easy.

Stayed here for 1 week and wouldn't hesitate to come back, super clean hostel and Liz is amazing, very knowledgeable and friendly. They supply free tea/coffee/salt/pepper/oil and wifi. Also I was there to experience free waffles and Mexican night. Great location only a 2min walk from Kings Cross station. If you want a nice hostel with a chilled vibe, Eva's...
