I just stayed for two nights with my 14 year old son in a private room. Can not say enough about how wonderful this hostel is... The rooms were great, bathrooms absolutely spotless, and the staff could not have been more friendly (we miss Carmen already! ) or helpful. Upon checking in we were given lots of great info that...

We have been a couple of days at Eva's Place and enjoyed it a lot. Great location as you stay central at Kings Cross, but still in a quiet area. Clean, cosy, nice kitchen with a lot of stuff needed for cooking, washing machine and dryer. Very nice rooftop with spectacular views for sunset. Very friendly and helpful staff.

We stayed for 5 nights in mid July after arriving in Sydney for a 6 week trip up to Cairns. Staff were friendly and organised, running a tight ship to ensure bathrooms (good number per bedrooms) and the kitchen were clean and tidy and that guests respected this. The kitchen was small yes but some self organisation around meal times...

Big hostel with a lot of rooms on different floors. Therefore really small kitchen and common area, totally crowded during dinner time. Two big fridges were a plus. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm with bathroom. Room was ok, big lockers, comfy beds, bathroom cleaned daily. Roof terrace is nice. Washing machines and dryers available. Staff was mostly friendly, but...

Great hostel in a very good location, close to the station. Room and bathrooms were clean and thank you for the free hot drinks - the best cup of tea we have had in 6 weeks! The bathrooms were spotless and a good ratio of bathrooms to guests - didn't have to wait longer than a few mins to get...

I would highly recommend this hostel. I had a private room with my partner and it was spotless. The bathrooms and common areas were never dirty and it's obvious that the employees take it seriously. We had one cockroach in our room, but it was no bother and it was removed immediately. The kitchen area can be crammed at times...

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.
