Property Information:

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 and free DVDs, 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.

    loved this hostel, the ensuite room is big enough, hot water running at any hour and fridge available inside the room. the location was just perfect, 2 minutes from the subway station and right in the middle of kings cross area, which is awesome for the night life. the hostel is really beautiful, with a little terrace and a big kitchen, plus a patio where you can have your lunch or dinner. common rooms very comfortable, amazing prices. will definitely come back!
