The Jolly Swagman Backpackers

Orwell Street

Kings Cross


I’m in two minds about this place. From one point of view it has good, helpful staff who can and will help out with tours and bookings; it has a friendly vibe and social area; a TV and film room to accommodate plenty of backpackers; four internet terminals and cheap access; and great access to the sleazy bars of the Kings Cross Area with free meal and drinks pretty much every night to entice you through the doors.

On the downside the rooms are not very clean; the bed is comfortable, and I slept well in the surprisingly quiet dorm, but there was garbage everywhere from previous guests when I stayed there. The bathrooms are upstairs from the dorms and once again are not the most hygienic. The kitchen is sizeable, but finding cups and clean plates can sometimes be a bit of a problem.

It’s a reasonably priced hostel, which I can certainly say is a fun place to stay, however, for me a passing visit was enough. I switched after two nights.
