Why use KCBIS as an abbreviation?
During our review, you might sometimes see us refer to Kings Cross Backpackers in Sydney (33 characters long, including blanks) as KCBIS (5 characters long) for the following 3 reasons:
- We created the acronym by taking the first letter of every word (which was very groundbreaking, we know)
- We’re lazy and KCBIS is simpler and easier for reviewing purposes
- We save 28 characters every time we do this
So, just a heads up that we’ll be using this abbreviation sometimes, so you’re not left scratching your head and wondering what the heck we’re talking about whenever we refer to KCBIS throughout the remainder of this review.
Also, we’ll sometimes use KCBIS40968 which is a combination of the abbreviation with the Travel Help Guru post id, which we sometimes use for THG tracking purposes to further differentiate abbreviations from one another.

That said, you can use the tips below to hopefully get a great Kings Cross Backpackers promotional offer, in addition to the deal at the top of this page.
Use Google to find the best Kings Cross Backpackers coupon promo codes and discounts

In a nutshell, you want to get on Google or a different search engine of your choice and do searches for things like:

Questions about Kings Cross Backpackers special rates that can save you more money
In addition to trying the tactics above, if you can find the contact information for someone who can book your stay at KCBIS, ask this person (let’s call him or her The Booker) the following questions that can help you save money.
What tips are there to save money when booking a room at Kings Cross Backpackers?
In general, traveling to Sydney off season, when it’s less busy, will help you save money when booking a room at KCBIS, but it never hurts to ask The Booker what other strategies there are to get a better rate than the standard rate (aka special savings opportunities), as well as what the rate plan policies are in general.
How can you avoid extra fees at Kings Cross Backpackers in Sydney?
Ideally, you want to avoid as many hidden fees as you can, so it pays to ask The Booker for KCBIS whether there is an extra person fee, early check in fee, late check out fee, wifi / internet access fee, and in some cases, an additional resort fee.
Does Kings Cross Backpackers offer holiday promo codes?
Sometimes, you can find great holiday specials when securing a place to stay, and The Booker for KCBIS would likely know of any upcoming holiday discounts.
What holiday packages does Kings Cross Backpackers offer to guests?
This is a slightly different than the question above, in that you might discover a package that involves excursions, shopping, or dining in Sydney that save you money that way.
Does Kings Cross Backpackers have student discounts, senior discounts, or military discounts?
Here’s one of our favorite THG tips: investigate whether you can get a specific discount type, like a student discount, senior discount, or military discount when booking your KCBIS stay, since these kinds of discount types are often not publicly advertised.
Does Kings Cross Backpackers have any friends and family discount programs?
This is another great question to ask The Booker for KCBIS40968, because getting friends and family discounts gets you instant benefits that is good for you but also them (since it encourages you to get more people to stay there).
Are there any special offers available for couples at Kings Cross Backpackers?
Similar to the approach above, you can ask The Booker about KCBIS couple discounts for romantic getaways, which sometimes works, depending on the accommodation.
How often does Kings Cross Backpackers release new coupon codes?
If there are, indeed, KCBIS coupon codes, promo codes, etc., then The Booker would be the best person to ask about how often such Kings Cross Backpackers discounts are released.
What are the blackout dates for Kings Cross Backpackers promotional codes?
This is a follow-up question to the question above, because if you discover any KCBIS promotional codes, they will probably be subject to availability, and there will likely be black out dates when you won’t be able to use them (like during the busy season) and The Booker can tell you what those blackout dates are.
Are there every any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals for Kings Cross Backpackers?
This one is more of a longshot, but it doesn’t hurt to ask the Booker if they ever have any black friday or cyber monday specials for KCBIS40968 (assuming you can wait that long).

But that’s optional.
And now, let the questions begin…
Is Kings Cross Backpackers in a good location in Sydney for you?
Where you want to be located in Sydney is one of the most important questions for you to answer.
Of course, it all depends on why you’ll be in Sydney in the first place, and whether the location of KCBIS will be helpful to you or not.
For example, are you traveling to Sydney for business or pleasure? Visiting friends or family there? Simply want to soak up the sights and attractions?
It’s very simple: decide what you want to actually accomplish (what you want to see or do) in Sydney. And then decide whether Kings Cross Backpackers’s location is a benefit for that or not.
Does Kings Cross Backpackers have a pool?
An indoor pool or outdoor pool (or even super swanky rooftop pool) might or might not be important to you, depending on how you’re planning to spend your time in Sydney and who you’re traveling with.
For example, if you’re traveling by yourself on business, it might not be important at all, but if you’re traveling to Sydney with friends, family, or children, and you think you’d enjoy relaxing by the pool at KCBIS, it might be an important consideration whether there is an indoor or outdoor swimming pool, whether it’s heated or not and has a pool bar or not, and so on.
If a pool is very important for your stay, THG recommends that you do a specific search for the best deals on Sydney hotels with pools.
Does Kings Cross Backpackers have a steam bath, sauna, hot tub, spa, or spa tub?
While you’re exploring the pool options at KCBIS40968, you might as well check whether there’s a steam bath, sauna, hot tub, full service spa, or spa tub that you might be able to enjoy to make your stay even more relaxing.
Does Kings Cross Backpackers offer free wi-fi?
This is a huge consideration when considering whether to stay at KCBIS, since people rely on wi fi (wireless internet access) for everything from business work to entertainment.
Travel Help Guru recommends that you double check that KCBIS40968 has, at the very least, free wifi in lobby areas, as well as more private options for fast, solid, reliable internet access.
Does the check-in time and check-out time at Kings Cross Backpackers work for you?
Check-in times and check-out times can vary a lot depending on the accomodation, so be sure to verify whether the check in time and check out time at KCBIS works with your schedule, as well as whether you can do a mobile check in to make the process even easier.
Does the cancellation policy for Kings Cross Backpackers work for you?
On the off-chance you have to cancel your reservation, check the cancellation policy for KCBIS so that you can avoid a cancellation fee on your credit card or debit card.
Does Kings Cross Backpackers have good transportation options for you?
Being able to get around Sydney easily will probably be an important consideration for you, so consider the related transportation issues and questions below, and see if KCBIS will sufficiently meet your needs.
Does Kings Cross Backpackers offer free airport shuttle service?
If you’re flying into an airport as a way of traveling to Sydney, you will want to ensure that you can easily get to and from the airport from KCBIS, and if you can do this for free with an airport shuttle service, instead of paying a taxi fare, bus fare, or for some other means of travel, that’s even better.
Does Kings Cross Backpackers offer free parking?
If you have a car during your stay in Sydney, be sure to verify whether KCBIS40968 offers free parking, because ideally you want to save some money by not paying for self parking or valet parking, if there’s any way you can avoid this fee.
Is the public transportation near Kings Cross Backpackers good?
If you don’t have a car when visiting Sydney, investigate what kind of transportation KCBIS provides to nearby sites, as well as the best way to get around, whether it’s by subway, train, taxi, bus, Uber, Lyft, etc, especially since a nearby subway station, train station, bus station, or taxi station in walking distance can make all the difference in the world.
Does Kings Cross Backpackers have enough beds for you?
If you’re staying at KCBIS with multiple people, this answer is important, because a single twin bed, double bed, queen bed, or king bed is fine if you’re on your own, but if there are others you’d rather not share a bed with, it’s worth checking whether you’ll have a couple double beds or queen sized beds for the sleeping arrangements, or perhaps even a double sofa that you can pull out and make into an extra bed.
Does Kings Cross Backpackers have good food options?
Depending on your needs, consider whether KCBIS offers a free breakfast, and if so, whether it’s a simple daily continental breakfast / buffet breakfast, or something fancier like a brunch or some kind of fine dining experience with exquisite cuisine and award winning food.
Beyond investigating your breakfast options at KCBIS40968, you’ll also want to know what other food options there are in Sydney (grocery stores, restaurants, etc.), and if you’re traveling with children, bonus points for checking whether any restaurants nearby have a children’s menu.

Does Kings Cross Backpackers have daily maid service?
Ideally, you want KCBIS to have clean bed sheets and fresh towels, whether or not there’s a daily cleaning service, and if you need laundry done, you might check whether there’s a laundromat or dry cleaning service nearby if these services aren’t available on site.
Are you happy with the amenities at Kings Cross Backpackers?
In addition to being happy with the services, you’ll also want to make sure you’re happy with the hotel amenities at KCBIS, such as the business amenities, exercise facilities and gym equipment (whether or not there’s a 24 hour fitness center), whether rooms come with perks like electric fireplaces, shopping options nearby, etc.
Does Kings Cross Backpackers have good tv options?

Depending on how important entertainment is to you, you might want to investigate whether KCBIS organizes any activities for guests, offers special packages, trips, or excursions, whether there is a casino or some other form of adult enternainment nearby, and if you’re traveling with children, whether there are any facilities for children that would make your stay easier.
Can you bring pets to Kings Cross Backpackers?

Is Kings Cross Backpackers suitable for special occasions?
If you’re celebrating a special occasion, be sure to verify whether KCBIS satisfies your needs, like whether it offers a romantic hotel package for couples, or whether it can accommodate group bookings if you’re traveling with a lot of people.
For example, if you’re dealing with lots of guests traveling to Sydney for a wedding, you might ask whether you can organize your wedding at KCBIS40968 or have wedding guests stay there, as well as whether there’s a penthouse or executive suite that you could book.
Is the smoking policy at Kings Cross Backpackers ideal?
If you can’t stand cigarette smoke or any other form of smoking, you might want to check if KCBIS has a non-smoking policy, and on the other hand, if you’re a smoker, you might want to check if smoking is allowed.

The staff were all so friendly and extremely helpful, by mentioning events happening within the city. The rooftop was also very beautiful and the proximity to Kings Cross Station is very handy.
I like how they welcome there staff. The place is in perfect location. Has lots of perks during your stay. Easy to meet people around the globe.
