Property Description

Welcome to The Downing Hostel :)
We are a small, chill, cheerful hostel located right in the city centre of Sydney!

The best about our hostel?
- Location - we are walking distance to everything you need in life: pub, food, night clubs, train stations, airport, waxing salon…
- Lockers in the rooms and corridors - get a padlock!
- Kitchen - open 24/7
- Wifi - free
- Access to free laundry when you stay with us for a minimum of three nights
- Air - free
- Luggage storage - free before check in and after checkout
Many things for you to be happy! Ah, and we rent bath towels and hairdryers.
That’s about it.

This will answer most questions:
- Check-in - from 1pm / Checkout - till 10am
- Reception - 8am till 10pm
- Yes, you can check-in after 10pm - just ring our on-call phone and our staff will welcome you :)
Our on-call staff are like the 7 dwarfs:
Feline - sleepy
Nat - tipsy
Matou - grumpy
Pati - bossy
Asli - mommy
Fabia - is definitely not a dwarf
Freja - dopey
Mel - well she’s more like tigger than a dwarf

Here are the things that we want you to know:
- We cannot accommodate anyone under the age of 18 - better for them anyway
- We cannot accommodate people that are naturally sassy, mean or just miserable
- Passport is required upon check-in / we accept driver’s license for Australian citizens
- Aircon in common areas / fans in the rooms
- No elevator - firm bums
- Our hostel can be very quiet or very noisy, depending on the crowd!
- …the street noise is consistent though
- We always try to keep friends in the same dorm but we cannot guarantee it especially when you book last minute - traveling is about making new friends anyway :)

Welcome to The Downing Hostel family!
We love you already :)

    Great affordable hostel right in the CBD. Lockers in rooms or hallways, access to the hostel and rooms only with keycard. Nice staff who do a lot of events as well which is really cool. Thanks for the free dinner and pancakes, I will definitely come back when I’m in Sydney!

    Fabulous

    08 Jan 2019
    Nice place & cheap accommodation, amazing location right near so many sights and shops! Lockers in rooms. Check in was a bit slow and the receptionist on duty was talking to the other staff hanging around the reception desk, which made it a bit awkward. Bathrooms & mirrors are in need of an upgrade. Cleaning/vacuuming could be better. Was a short stay so we have no major complaints. Check out was easy and the French female receptionist was super friendly!
