Property Description

Ady's Place Backpackers offers clean, comfortable and affordable backpacker accommodation perfectly situated in the heart of the city. The hostel is just a short stroll to Kings Cross Station and Hyde Park, as well as moments from the domain and the iconic Sydney Harbour.

Recently renovated, and providing free coffee and tea, WiFi and nightly events, we are your first choice to accommodate you on your adventure to Sydney!

Just two train stops or a short walk away you’ll find Westfield Tower and shopping centre, Darling Harbour, Hyde Park and an array of other city attractions. Two stops in the other direction, you’ll find the world famous Bondi Beach and beautiful coastal walks.

We only accept guests over 18 years presenting a valid photo ID View House Rules


Ady's Place Backpackers is the spot to meet folks from around the world, as we only host travellers with an international passport! We give you a free breakfast every morning so you can get to know other guests and, as a treat on Sundays, we'll make you pancakes. We also put on free events like our Friday barbecue – it's up on our rooftop terrace (because the Sydney skyline looks even better with a cold beer). After partying in Sydney's clubs, recover in our common room – there's two-tiered seating to view our 75-inch flat-screen TV. Head here on Sundays for movie night and free popcorn.


We're centrally located – just a 15-minute walk from the city and a 10-minute walk from Kings Cross railway station. From Sydney Airport get the T8 rail line to Wolli Creek. Change to the T4 line and exit at Kings Cross Station (the journey takes about half an hour). When Bondi Beach beckons, get there on the train in 37 minutes. Hit Hyde Park in 14 minutes on foot and stroll for 24 minutes to reach Darling Harbour.

Rooms and Dorms

Most of our mixed and female-only dorms have a private bathroom. Linen is free and you can hire a towel from reception if yours has disappeared on your travels! You'll get a large storage locker to stash your backpack – bring a padlock or buy one from the front desk. After dark, snuggle up in your bunk and use our free Wi-Fi to let everyone back home know what you've been up to.

Extras and activities

We have an entertainment manager here, so keep your eye on the events board at reception. There's everything from family-style dinners to pre-clubbing parties. We'll also give you a free city map for exploring solo – grab a coffee from our kitchen before you go. When you need to do a wash, just chuck your stuff in our machine and help yourself to a novel from our book exchange while you wait.

    Great location and good facilities. Staff really stepped up the cleaning and the place and their policies were spot on during the Coronavirus. Anna was a great help and super friendly as were the other reception staff, Hostel was quite noisy at night which is only down side.

    I stayed at Ady's Place for 6 nights, and it was great! I was nervous because it was my first stay at a hostel and I was traveling alone, but I never felt unsafe. The staff was helpful with any questions I had, and the room was basic but comfortable. I think my only real issue was that some of the guests could get loud at night, but I could still get to sleep fine. If you are a mobility aid user this place could be a challenge, as there are stairs at the entry. Overall a pleasant stay :-)

    Overall a very good stay. Staff is really friendly, and rooms are clean and nice. If it weren’t for the people yelling all day long in the hostel (even with the hostel asking people to not be anti social) I would come back. :)

    Nice place to arrive in Sydney. Great location and super friendly staff. Cleaning is done very regularly but facilities are a bit old. But overall totally worth the money.

    Constant noise late into the morning with people shouting in the corridors all days of the week despite the staff saying no antisocial behavior and no loud music but dont actually enforce it. Only having a 9-5 reception. They have a " night warden tho dont no what they do. House keeping burst into the room talking loudly while people sleep. Then complain about some sunglasses on top of a locker. Kitchen is too small for the amount of people.
