Property Description

Elephant Backpacker is located 5 minutes from the city centre and is easily accessed by bus and train. We offer no frills style accommodation for budget conscious guests. Breakfast is included in your room tariff and there is a communal kitchen should you wish to cook and eat. The building has a lift and caters for disabled guests. We are not a party hostel and do not permit alcohol nor smoking in the building. We are cheap and basic and our rate reflects this so if you are looking for something flash and ritzy we are not suitable for you.

    This is one of those hostels that is really just a cheap hotel. If you just need a no-fuss place to crash, then this place is for you. It was cleaner than I expected and is quiet.

    This hostel is honestly disgusting. The reviews on this website made it seem acceptable but it was far from that. Broken toilets, cockroaches everywhere, disgusting carpets and floors, broken beds. I couldn't shower for the 3 days I was there because I was scared I would get some kind of infection from how disgusting the bathrooms were. I've stayed at far nicer hostels for the same price as this one. I will NOT be returning here next time I'm in Sydney, that's for sure.
