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 and check in 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 (limits do apply).

Double, Twin & Single rooms available with & without private bathrooms, all with fridges, TVs & DVDS, 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.

IMPORTANT
Over the Christmas and New Year period there will be a 10 night minimum night stay, from 23rd December to 2nd January; there will be non refundable deposit of 50% charged on 1st December.

" Comfortable beds, helpful staff, good location. Definitely caters more for the younger crowd. Would not stay again but that's more to do with interest than any fault of the hostel. "
