Stayed in a few hostels in Sydney, but this is one of my favs. Close to everything, but also tucked away in a quiet street away from the Kings Cross strip.

2nd time staying here and again had a great time. Close to everything, supermarkets, bars, restaurants etc... Short walk to city and opera house. Friendly staff, free breakfast and nightly meal deals. Have some mates coming to Sydney soon and I have already recommended them to stay here at Jolly Swagman Backpackers

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. It looks like you generally enjoyed your stay with us, however, at some stage it was too noisy. We do have a 24/7 reception, so if you had let us know, we would have ensured the noise was reduced to a minimum. Hopefully we will see you again Jolly Swagman Backpackers
