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...

We found this backpackers accomodation by real chance, booked based on the reviews we read here and ... amazingly good. Even better than we thoughted Felt at home in a metropole like Sydney where we don't know anybody, never used the car for four days, walked all the time (you don't need to take public transports). Really really good stay,...

Located near Circular Quay (15 min walk) you will not find a better hostel. Very enthousiastic and easy staff, nice clean rooms, all ensuite. Make sure you book your stay including a Wednesday otherwise you will miss the waffle breakfast! Supermarket, ATM, Metro station all in walking distance.

Eva's Backpackers really is a great Hostel and we enjoyed our stay. We were in a 4-bed dorm with ensuite bathroom - both the room and the bathroom were cleaned every day! Every bed has its own reading light and there are big lockers for each person (you could fit your whole backpack in them if you like). At night...

I stayed at Eva's at the very beginning of my trip and it gave me a good feeling right away. Friendly staff, nice people around, clean rooms and kitchen, roof terrace and everything needed in walking distance. So I returned after 10 weeks for the last nights of my trip and I felt as comfy as before. Great hostel! Definitely...
