Property Information:

Backpackers HQ, now with SUPER-FAST UNLIMITED WIFI!
We were voted the #1 Hostel in Australia by Hostelworld guests for the month of August 2012.

Backpackers HQ is newly renovated and positioned right in the heart of Sydney's vibrant King's Cross. We're set on tree-lined, cosmopolitan Victoria Street among the cafes and restaurants. We have great views of the CBD and are an easy walk to the city centre.

Our hostel feels like a home away from home. It's clean, secure, comfortable and stylish. Our amazing courtyard, relaxing garden areas and fully equipped stainless steel kitchen are the best in the Cross.

Our free SUPER FAST UNLIMITED WiFi will keep you in touch with your family and friends back home, while our amazing breakfast will keep you full all day. The free breakfast includes the choice of cereals with milk, toast and a large selection of spreads as well as fresh seasonal fruit and teas and coffee served in our atrium courtyard.

Our great location, atmosphere and level of comfort guarantee you a fun, exciting and adventure-filled time in Sydney. So whether you're here to work or play, we offer a quiet, friendly hostel with exciting Sydney at your doorstep.

Our freebies include free use of our exciting new giant chess set, free use of the personal security lockers in each room (large enough for your backpack), free linen and blanket hire.

You can relax any time in our huge, 24hr TV lounge/library area, complete with cable TV.

We also offer guest laundry, free assistance with job searches and practical advice as well as free maps, tourist info and a great free city walking tour.

PLEASE NOTE: We are an international youth hostel. We can only accept guests with a valid international passport and do not accept guests over the age of 35 in dorm rooms. Unfortunately we have no facilities for guests under the age of 18 years.

    I loved this hostel!!! They had large lockers in each room and plenty of room to move around. The staff went out of their way to ensure we had a good time and our tour bookings went through. Bathrooms were clean, with a free breakfast, and free wifi! If I ever go back to Sydney I will definitely stay here again!
