Property Information:

Tokyo Village is a small quirky hostel, ideal for those who want to be close to the city.

We are a 65 bed hostel with a difference. Small and personal with a quirky atmosphere, catering more for people who like to travel away from the big crowds and party houses. Frequented by cyclists, motorcycle riders and the guy who rode his scooter from Cairns to Perth.

The hostel is spread over three Victorian terrace houses. Two fully equipped kitchens, a comfortable common room with an extensive book exchange and a lovely backyard provide more than adequate space to meet new friends or write those long overdue postcards.

The owner, Charles, who came backpacking from his native Germany 25 years ago, is hopelessly addicted to bush walking, mountain biking and similar outdoor activities.

We are more than happy to provide you with all the information and assistance you need to really explore the wonderful countryside around Sydney, the Blue Mountains and adjacent National Parks as well as many tips about your travels up and down the East Coast.

We do not have a tour desk since the commissions paid by tour operators can easily cloud the judgment of what is the best deal for our guests. For advice on different options and DIY travel you can contact Charles or ask the reception to contact him and he will give you the best advice how to go about your trip... and leave you totally confused ;-)

Parking is relatively easy in this part of town. Motorcycles and bicycles can be safely parked and worked on in the backyard.

Internet access for email checking is free at the reception

Free WiFi is available to all guests for 15 minutes per device per day. A 24h complimentary WiFi access card is issued to everyone booking 3 nights or more. Paid internet is available from $1.00 per hour.

Laundry facilities are available for a small fee.

Free breakfast? No. Since I consider breakfast should consist at least of freshly brewed coffee, fresh orange juice, eggs any style, bacon, hash browns, cereals toast and fresh fruit, this is not included,
however we do provide you with breakfast cereals, tea, coffee as well as all the steamed rice you can eat from 0800h-1200h and 1600h-2030h.

We assist those looking for work with finding jobs. Instead of having a jobs board where you have to make a hundred phone calls to employers who are sick and tired of receiving hundreds of phone calls from unsuitable applicants and the only job you end up getting is being dressed up in a koala suit in 39 degrees heat harassing pedestrians to give money to a 'charity' we directly match you with the available jobs you are suited for... We want you to be able to pay your rent ;-)

    Good place for working backpackers who also want to be able to go out and have fun. Free rice pretty much all day long, only thing is you can't lose any of your dishes that have been assigned to you!

Things to Note

Check in time : as we are a small hostel with few arrivals our reception might be closed between 1300h-1600h. If you arrive during that time you are welcome to make yourself comfortable in the TV lounge or the backyard until the reception reopens. To ensure the disturbance to existing guests and those wanting to rest is kept to a minimum and that everyone has a chance to know with whom they are sharing a room, dormitory check in is generally only possible until 1800h. Should you arrive later than 1800h please contact us first so we can make the necessary arrangements. Private rooms can check in any time , please contact us if you might be arriving between 1300h-1600h or after 2200h so we can advise you how to get to your room.
