Property Information:

***We are a genuine international youth hostel for travellers aged between 18 - 35 with a foreign passport***

Managed by a brand new, fun-loving team, we’re the perfect hostel to accommodate you on your adventure to Sydney!

We’re a recently renovated hostel in the centre of the bustling Kings Cross area. Just two train stops or a short walk away you’ll find Westfield Tower and shopping centre, Darling Harbour, Hyde Park and an array of other city attractions. Two stops in the other direction, you’ll find the world famous Bondi Beach and beautiful coastal walks. Right on your doorstep you’ll find a tasty selection of bars and clubs in the popular backpacker district.

Here are some of our amenities that we like to brag about: free WiFi Internet around the clock, free continental breakfast, tea and coffee all day, and a chilled-out Saturday BBQ in the courtyard followed by pancake Sundays.

We offer a free airport shuttle service to guests staying 4 nights or longer (pick up only) making your airport transfer super simple.

We have a fully equipped kitchen, recently renovated bathrooms, plenty of showers (so you’re never waiting around), washers and dryers for all those travel-worn clothes, and three communal areas where you can relax or party.

Common areas include the ‘Blue Room’ party lounge, a 24-hour TV room with Foxtel around the clock, and our own private courtyard.

We organise events every night so make sure you check out the notice board, see what’s going on, and get involved!

    If It wasn't for the helpfulness and niceness of the staff I would have left after the first night. Room was filthy, way too small for 4 people. 5 unisex toilets and showers which were constantly disgusting, even after the cleaner had been in... The fact that there were pubes on the sink, mirrors and walls leads me to believe the cleaner uses same cloth to clean whole bathroom. "No food in rooms" not policed- cockroach issue. Woken up by screaming at 4.30am outside and night team didn't care
