Property Description

Captain Cook International Backpackers **OVERSEAS PASSPORT HOLDERS ONLY**

Located on Flinders Street, we are a short distance from the large number trendy cafes and bars of the Surry Hills and Oxford Street area. We are only a 10-15 minute walk to Central Station. Also, located across the road from the hostel is the Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground where you can watch a variety of sports such as cricket, AFL, soccer and Rugby.

We offer FREE WIFI: Which is great as most hostels in Sydney charge for it, and we also give each one of our new guests a free drink voucher as a welcome gift.

We boast a large rooftop area with great city views: Perfect for catching some sun or watching the Sydney sunset at the end of a long day. If you would rather stay tucked inside then you can relax and socialise in our common area.

Sydney has a large and upcoming music scene and we are very excited to be a part of it. We have live music every Thursday/Friday/Saturday and some Sundays. Check out of Facebook page for our weekly line-ups! Our location means that we are within a short walking distance from other popular live music venues such as the Horedon Pavillion and Oxford Art Factory, which have famous bands playing almost every week.

Further more, the hostel is located near to Fox studios entertainment quarter, which has a cinema, bowling alley, laser tag arena, bars and restaurant.

We offer a $15 food + drink deal, as well as a daily happy hour, which is exclusively for our guests.
We also have a Ping-Pong table and a darts board to keep you entertained whilst drinking down at the bar.
We like to think of ourselves as a little Sydney family and we look forward to meeting you soon.

Hope to see you soon!

Latest Review

" I stayed for a night before catching a flight out the next day. I was offered a free beer on arrival at the bar downstairs and was given a warm welcome by the staff. The rooms are standard and so are the facilities but it was all clean and tidy. I wanted to go out and so did some of the other guys. We couldn’t decide where to go so we just stayed and took advantage of happy hour at the bar. Great night considering I didn’t go anywhere. I will definitely be staying here when I come back! "
