Property Description

As 'The Original' Hostel in Sydney, we pride ourselves on our great reputation, friendly staff and warm social atmosphere. Recommended by Lonely Planet, Let's Go and Rough Guide.

The Original Backpackers is a beautiful Victorian building that was converted into backpacker accommodation in 1980. At that time, there were Youth Hostels, but the term 'backpackers' was introduced by the original owners of the Original Backpackers. We reckon that makes us the very first backpackers in the world.

Reception is available 24 hours. We have a beautiful sunny outdoor courtyard, a big modern kitchen with 2 ovens and food lockers, a theatre style TV room with cable TV, laundry with 2 new washers & dryers.

We offer free internet & WiFi (300mbs per day).

Cheap $20 a day secure parking (special offer to our hostel guests).


Double, Twin & Single rooms available with & without private bathrooms, all with fridges, TVs, fans in summer and heaters in winter.

Dorms for travellers aged 18-35 range from 4 bed to a maximum of 10 beds, all dorms have fridges, fans in summer and heaters in winter.

Latest Review

" We had a privat room and really enjoyed it. It was spotless clean and facilities modern. Staff was absolutely great and always helpful, the neighborhood is beautiful and highly recommended. Be aware that rooms are around the kitchen patio which provides some constant noise level, however they are very strict with the 22 o`clock quiet time which ensures good sleep. The kitchen concept of everyone having assigned cubs and plates needs getting used to it and the kitchen is ok. "
