About Sydney

Backpackers have been coming to Sydney for a long time, which might explain why the hostels in Sydney are so good.
Whether you’re planning to travel around Australia for a few weeks or make the most of a working holiday visa,
there’s so much choice you’re sure to find the perfect youth hostel.

Sydney can be expensive, but the good news is there are plenty of cheap hostels to choose from that are still close to the action.
If you want easy access to the best attractions, you’ll want to find a hostel in Darling Harbour, King’s Cross or Surry Hills.
For those in love with the ocean, the obvious choice is Bondi Beach, or Coogee if you’re looking for a bit more peace and quiet.

Regardless of where you stay, most hostels will have activities and events to keep you entertained on your day off from all the sightseeing.
You could grab a quiet drink at the hostel bar, cooking some food with friends in the communal kitchen,
or hanging out in a leafy courtyard for the afternoon.

It’s a good idea to see what your hostel offers before you book. Picking the right place to stay can make the difference between a place to sleep every night
and a home away from home. On the days when you need some space, remember that most hostels will have private rooms available as well.

As for Sydney’s main attractions, the majority are close to the city centre and CBD. The most popular are the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and the Royal Botanic Gardens.
If you want to experience the surf life, head straight for Bondi, or one of these amazing beaches in Sydney.

Once you’ve had enough of the tourist trail, make sure to check out the Rocks Market, where you can find over 200 stalls selling jewellery,
artwork and all kinds of delicious street food. Head for some of Sydney’s top bars afterwards, or save your money with a few more free things to do.
