Property Description

Pittwater YHA is a Lonely Planet Author's Pick hostel.

This unique water access oasis is the perfect city escape. Located within the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, this beautiful backpackers hostel is only 30 km north of Sydney's central city area.

The hostel has 8 bedrooms, a very well equipped kitchen and a cosy lounge room with a log fire for colder times. The verandah has stunning views across Pittwater harbour to the National Park.

Take a scenic ferry ride, sail on the harbour or bushwalk to aboriginal engraving sites and stunning lookouts. Hire a kayak for a paddle around the bay or just relax in a hammock with the wallabys beside you and the native birds above.

Bring your food as there are no shops at the hostel. If travelling with bed linen (top +bottom sheets and pillow slip) bring these otherwise hire at $4pp. Do not bring sleeping bags.

‘A true Getaway’ in a pristine and pure environment. Go there if you really want to unwind and escape from the city (like I needed to) and yet be so close to it! Nothing compliments better to than a safe haven like this YHA. A big shout out and thanks to Michael for taking care and preserving this place so beautifully for me and many others to experience.

There are no locks on the bedroom door but it still felt safe. The owners are really nice and 10/10 if you are looking for a nice short trip away from the city and crowds.
