Value for Money in Great Location
I'd recommend staying at Zing Backpackers as we found the price very reasonable for Sydney, liked the little touches like a kettle in the room, plates & cutlery etc..
Minutes from Kings Cross with excellent transport links into the city centre & beyond
Breakfast being provided as well was appreciated.
Wi-fi isn't strong in the room but that's the only negative thing I'd critique. We've had a very enjoyable stay.

One receptionist was a little scary.
But other staff has tender heart. Thank you so much. The room was clean

Service was very good, staff were accommodating and very helpful, especially Andre. Breakfast consisting of unlimited bread, cereals, spread, milk, coffee, was good enough considering the cheap cost per person. The hostel was close to a lot of eateries, and mall. It was a few meters away from Kings Cross train station, thus very accessible to tourist spots like Opera House, Darling Harbour, etc.
However, it could improve on sleeping comfort if the rooms without aircon will have screen windows so guests can open the window instead of turning on the fan which is rather noisy. And, the hotel mgt. should also control guests from staying out of their rooms and conversing at the common area which is near the guests rooms. Their conversations distract sleeping guests whose rooms are near the common area.

Old run down hostal. Toilets are nasty and unclean. Some of the people staying here are crazy party goers; they have been staying in this hostal Zing/oringal for months and and they defintely are the long terms tenant there, so all they know and want to do is party. If you are assigned to room up with one of these people, you are out of luck because they don’t sleep at night and constantly going in and out of the room and making noises, so you wouldn’t be able to sleep either. As mentioned above, toilets are filthy, people vomit everywhere in the bathroom after they came back from the party.

Good location and correct hostel
Close to the center and transports. It's enough for a backpacker lodge, room and chicken were correct, toilets and bathrooms were clean.
Negative point: noisy during the night and no smoking area are not respected and the management doesn't pay attention.

샤워실이나 화장실은 공용임에도 굉장히깔끔했습니다.저는 트윈룸을 선택했는데 호스트님께서 문을 열어주시자마자 죽은 바퀴벌레가 있었습니다. 침대도 가운데가 완전히 꺼져서 잘때 소리도 심하고 허리도 아파서 거의 선잠잤어요. 사람들은 친절하고 좋았어요. 지하철도 가까워서 좋긴한데 킹스크로스 지역이라서 밤에는 웬만하면 여성분 혼자서는 돌아다니지 않으시는걸 추천드려요!

Beaucoup de bruit
Notre chambre était près de la cour où les gens fesaient jouer de la musique forte et parlaient très fort. Puisque les murs sont très minces et les fenêtres ne bloquent pas le bruit, on avait du mal à dormir et on s'est fait réveillé souvent. Le lit était confortable par contre et les employés très gentils. Le hostel est situé à 3 mins d'un métro qui permet de se rendre en ville rapidement.
