Sydney can be expensive, but the good news is there are plenty of cheap youth hostels to choose from that are still close to the action. Most Sydney hostels will have activities and events to keep you entertained on your day off from all the sightseeing. If you are travelling solo, You could grab a quiet drink at the hostel bar, cook some food with friends in the communal kitchen, or hang out in a leafy courtyard for the afternoon. On the days when you backpacking and need some space, remember that most hostels will have private rooms available as well. Check out the best hostels in Sydney here.

If you want easy access to the best attractions such as the Sydney Opera House, check youth hostels 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.

The fastest option to explore Sydney’s city centre is the train - the City Circle loop will get you to the main attractions in no time.
