Property Description

The hostel enjoys large accommodation rooms, roomy corridors and a heritage staircase of a by-gone era as it was built as a hotel in 1894.  Set over 4 levels, the top 3 floors accommodate a variety of dormitories and private rooms with each level having communal ladies and men’s shower blocks and separate toilets.  All accommodation rooms are provided with bed linen, lockers and reading lights. 

The ground floor houses a communal kitchen and dining area, tv room, our reception and licensed café & bar. Free continental breakfast is provided daily in our café from 7am to 10am. The building offers secure card access.

Woolloomooloo, the gentrified city fringe suburb of the hostel is just 5 minutes’ walk from Hyde Park and 10 minutes from shopping at Pitt Street Mall. It is 10 minutes’ bus ride from Sydney Opera House or 15 minutes’ bus ride from Bondi Beach. Enjoy taking the underground travellator across from our hostel to Hyde Park!

Our hostel does not permit alcohol to be consumed in the rooms or common areas.  Alcohol is available for purchase in our licensed café & bar.  We are not a party hostel but suitable for travelers, families and groups.  We also welcome disable guests and have a large lift that can accommodate wheel chairs.
