Funky inner-city boutique hotel/motel popular with independent travellers!

You're an adventurous independent traveller and want to experience the real Sydney, right? Well then come to Newtown - not another tourist trap but Sydney's throbbing, bohemian heartland of the inner-city. Located just south of Central Station and home to Sydney University, UTS and various other colleges, venues and galleries, Newtown is where you'll find the greatest collection of students, musicians and artists in Australia. TNT magazine says: 'Newtown is so alive, it's addictive!'

Billabong Gardens is a warm and friendly 'home' just metres to the main street of Newtown, (King Street), full of sensational restaurants, cheap eats, funky cafes, eclectic shops and the best nightlife in Sydney - great bars, theatres and live music venues are everywhere. It is here that you will meet true Australians and not just more backpackers.

At Billabong Gardens we offer a choice of private rooms and 4-6 bed dorms with or without private bathroom. Our hotel is super clean and has great facilities geared for the needs of the budget traveller. From a fully equiped kitchen to free internet and low-cost Wi-Fi, Billabong has it all, even a tropical courtyard with a pool where you can dine under the stars or unwind at the end of a hectic day in the city.

If you're thinking about staying in town for a while, Billabong Gardens might be the ideal solution. With our amazing weekly rates and long term and winter specials, it is no wonder that so many working travellers and students call the Billabong home.

So come and relax by our swimming pool, choose from our excellent 4 or 6 bed female only or mixed dorms or your own private room and find out what it's really like to live in the real Sydney. Anything else and your just visiting!

    We had a small family room for me and my 2 sons (14 yo) and it was fine. Bathroom was small but clean and modern. On our first day the temp had been 42C & we struggled to sleep with only a ceiling fan. Second night no probs. Location close to King St is fantastic, and on Sun morning we had a fascinating wander through tiny streets close to the hostel. I also stayed 1 night in single room in the adjacent terrace, with a shared bathroom. I could hardly sleep b/c of strong disinfectant smell.
