Property Description

We are proud to offer our guests:
*FREE INTERNET*, *FREE AIRPORT PICKUP* (3 day min) *FREE BREAKFAST* and *FREE BBQ'S* in a safe, secure environment with 24 hour reception.

Located in a quiet street in Potts Point, we are right next to the heart of Sydney's Backpacker Mecca - Kings Cross!

The main CBD is easily accessible by train or by foot through the botanical gardens. All the best clubs and pubs are only a hop, skip and a jump away so there is no need for trains, buses or taxis.

We have great deals with the best backpacker-friendly bars and restaurants to offer all our guests great discounts and free entry wherever you go. Our friendly Entertainment Manager is always ready to take you and your fellow backpackers out and show you a good time!

There is no need to waste your day hunting around for the best deal - we have it all here for you at reception. Let us do all the hard work, so you can enjoy your time in Sydney! You can book Sydney day tours and packages all around Australia; we have plenty of options to choose from.

With a lively, energetic bunch of hostel managers who've been, seen and done it all themselves, the Jolly Swagman Backpackers Sydney Hostel maintains a reputation for the friendliest staff, the cleanest beds and the best rates.

Lockers available in all dorms (excluding three-bed dorms).

We know what backpackers in Sydney want!

Latest Review

" The staff: great and very helpful. The hostel: was clean, rooms were OK. The bathrooms: clean, but the shower was horrible as there was barely any water pressure/hot water. Free Wifi: barely worked. The vibe: very chill and relax, not many people into going out because they live there and work. Unfortunately, not a fun place to be on your own. The area of the hostel: cool with many restaurants and bars just walking distance. Train station is very close and you have access all over. "
