Right next to Kings Cross station, close to Woolies, cafes. Walking distance to Oxford Street, then into city area. Breakfast part of deal. Getting to your room means a steep stair climb. Accommodation is adequate and reflects the price. Have stayed twice and will stay again.

close to train station, cafes, buses

A handy place to stay, next door to kings cross station, reasonably priced, good cleaning regime, free breakfast. Quiet enough despite its location. However internal doors are very loud closing.

Clean, quirky and in the city centre

Pros: Clean, quirky, free wifi, modern and close to everything
Cons: Thicket blankets would be great, and it would have been nice if the staff checked that I was ok after slipping down their stairs late at night.
Location: Right above the Kings Cross Train Station if you are that way inclined, and 5-mins walk from a pharmacy and a supermarket (Coles).
Great hostel - we had a very clean room with fresh sheets and towels. My only quibbles would be that the blankets supplied are very thin and we were very cold at night in May, and that the person working reception the night we arrive was not bothered at all about my fall down 5+ stairs and landing on my tailbone. Watch out - the stairs are narrow and slippery! I'm an accident-prone 23-year-old and I took a good fall. Other than that I loved this place and would definitely stay again!

Right in the midst of the nightlife!

I chose the Kackaroo as my base for Mardi Gras weekend as it was walking distance for almost everything and I was participating in the parade. The only downside to my stay was my room-mates each bringing new partners back to the room and having noisy drunk sex - but otherwise, it met the requirements for cwntral-to-everything.
