I enjoy my visit at originals backpackers the individuals who work here are extremely nice and straightforward going. I&'ve been in Sydney for 4 months and by far for the price and living environment its one of my favourite hostels to live in if you our ever in Sydney come to originals. Everyone here is like a household makes me really feel like I&'m back home.

  Customer Review 

The spot has a wonderful atmosphere, the employees are really nice as well as the kitchen is great. I ended up staying here 9 days instead of my original plan for two. Must stay spot for Sydney.

Very social place, has a courtyard exactly where you can meet new people

  Customer Review 

The hostel was generally extremely clean and tidy, although the long term residents who work and stay there do make the dorms and bath rooms quite messy. The environment was very good and in case you are young and looking for a party this could possibly be right up your street as the long term residents are usually out every single night. There was also free wifi! The location is perfect, as properly as the hostel is actually on the same street as the train station. What a bonus!

Good atmosphere, great facilities, great location + helpful staff

  Customer Review 

The hostel is in a very good location, two mins walk from Kings Cross train station. Plenty of restaurants, pubs and stores nearby. The hostel itself is nice. I stayed in a four bed dorm so not sure what the bigger dorms are like. Staff are really warm and friendly and helpful also. The bathrooms and rooms are cleaned daily, and the kitchen/common areas are pretty cool. There was a nice mixture of age groups and also a mixture of short term and long term guests, so I guess it will suit most people.
