Property Description

Elephant Backpacker is a cheap and cheerful hostel centrally located between Sydney’s red light district (Kings Cross) and the City Center. We overlook Sydney’s main gardens – Hyde Park, Domain and Botanical Gardens. The hostel is housed in a Victorian period hotel built in 1892. Our rooms are large with high ceilings and our three accommodation floors each have communal ladies and men’s showers and separate toilet cubicles.

Our ground floor consists of the communal kitchen, dining area, television lounge, reception and our newly opened cafe that serves yummy meals from 7am to 11pm daily.

Our hostel has 220 beds over 3 accommodation floors ranging in a variety of room configurations. The guest mix varies from your traditional young backpackers both travelling and working, to grey nomads and Australians and New Zealanders on holidays. We are unable to cater for children.

Our dorm rooms are made up by our housekeeping team with a bottom sheet (all commercially laundered). You collect your top sheet, pillow and blanket from reception upon check in. Linen is included in your room rate. Our private doubles and twins already have your bed made up waiting for your arrival.

We can cater and welcome guests with disabilities. We have an accommodation room on the ground floor together with toilet and shower facilities catering for wheelchair access. Our hostel has an elevator should you wish to stay in rooms on a higher floor.

So if you are after a friendly hostel that is cheap and cheerful – Elephant is for you.

" Worst hostel I've ever stayed in. Staff were miserable, facilities were filthy and you have to put down a deposit of $20 to receive a bedsheet and a pillow which is flat as a pancake. How anybody can enjoy their time here is beyond me unless they're too drunk too notice all the blatant faults. They won't be though, as this 'hostel' has a '0 tolerance' policy on alcohol. I was put in with a homeless man and a crackhead by the way, That woman from N. Ireland who works there has to "
