Join us at Bondi Backpackers for a real taste of the Aussie surf life. You can spend your days doing yoga on our sea-view rooftop or finding your legs on one of our free-to-use surfboards. We're an adults-only hostel and we really love meeting new people, so we put on laid-back social events like beach barbecues and wine and cheese nights pretty often. You'll be glad there’s free Wi-Fi – with views like ours, your Insta notifications will be constantly buzzing.


We’ll help you make the most of our waterfront location with free walking tours along the coast. Make sure you check out the iconic seafront baths, Bondi Icebergs, a 5-minute walk away. We’re a bit away from the city-centre bustle of Sydney, but you can still get there in 30 minutes. From Campbell Parade, take the bus to Bondi Junction Interchange and walk to the train towards Central Station. It takes about 30 minutes to and from Sydney Airport via a shuttle service, too.

Rooms and Dorms

Check out our dorms, some of which overlook Bondi Beach – not a bad view from your bunk! If you’re travelling as a couple or with a buddy, we’ve got double and twin-bed private options too. Sheets are included, and you can hire towels if you don't have one in your pack. Rooms are kept airy by ceiling fans, and there are lockers for your gear. We’ve got laundry facilities for dealing with sandy swimsuits and irons for your night-out clothes.

Extras and activities

Our rooftop is a top spot for taking it easy: it's fitted with deckchairs and umbrellas so you can sunbathe for that Aussie glow. Inside you'll find self-catering facilities and a fridge for storing your local lagers. If you’re staying in town for a while, our jobs board can help you plan your next move. Got a night flight? Feel free to check-out late and store your backpack here.

    I LOVED Bondi Backpackers! All the staff were so lovely, the rooms were super clean, light and secure and the location was amazing - right on the beach! The kitchen had everything we needed and the activities the staff put on were great - coming as a solo traveller and having the opportunity to join the bbq, drinks and free pancakes was awesome. Will 100% be coming back in summer :) Thanks guys!!

    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at by far. Super clean, spacious rooms (stayed in a 6 bed female dorm), nice atmosphere, incredibly nice and laid back staff and incredible location, right across from the beach and the bus that takes you straight to the city. Activities were a plus too ($2 bbq!), wish I’d been able to stay more than one night, and wish I’d gotten to join in on the yoga or personal training classes!! Would stay here again if I’m ever back in Bondi :)

    Major construction seems to be complete, just minor stuff left so the hallways and such aren't completely finished. Regardless, it's lovely! Decor looks great and rooms have new light boxes/USB ports for each bed. Staff are super friendly and welcoming. Lots to do as well :) The atmosphere is pretty laid back, which is likely due to the slightly older crowd (I'm talking 21+ rather than the typical 18-20 crowd). Only con (IMHO) was that there aren't enough toilets on each floor.

    This was a nice hostel with a good location on the beach.The hostel was under construction while I was there, but it was kept really clean. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a hostel cleaned so much. My only complaint is being roomed with an older male that did not appear to be a backpacker. This guy had an unpleasant demeanor that left me and the other girl in the room feeling uncomfortable.I wish old men were not roomed with young females in any hostel, yet it is a chance you take with mixed dorms.

    Nice surrounding. But a very short trip to fully enjoy the activity it has to offer. Just watched the morning yoga session which I think is very good.
