    Mad monkey king's cross is a clean hostel and has amazing staff. I met amazing people there. Those who are saying it's not clean probably haven't travelled a lot. The kitchen might need a bit of love but to me, everything was perfect.

    Nice hostel, what makes it the free breakfast and free wifi for a relatively cheap price. Lots of workers here so it's not as social as it could be. Kings Cross is a good location too, close to trains not far into the CBD

    Changing liquor laws are remodeling "The Cross,"
    Sydney's red light district. These new rules have
    encouraged trendy cafes and boutiques to pop-up in the
    area, as well as organic markets on Saturdays. The
    area's nightclubs are still popular with youngsters,

    weekend nights. There are plenty of artifacts from
