Property Description

Funky inner-city boutique hostel/motel popular with independent travellers!

You're an adventurous independent traveller and want to experience the real Sydney, right? Well then come to Newtown - not another tourist trap but Sydney's throbbing, bohemian heartland of the inner-city. Located just south of Central Station and home to Sydney University, UTS and various other colleges, venues and galleries, Newtown is where you'll find the greatest collection of students, musicians and artists in Australia. TNT magazine says: 'Newtown is so alive, it's addictive!'

Summer House Newtown is a warm and friendly 'home' just metres to the main street of Newtown (King Street), full of sensational restaurants, cheap eats, funky cafes, eclectic shops and the best nightlife in Sydney - great bars, theatres and live music venues are everywhere. It is here that you will meet true Australians and not just more backpackers.

At Summer House Newtown we offer a choice of private rooms and 4, 6 or 8 bed dorms with or without private bathroom. Our hostel is super clean and has great facilities geared for the needs of the budget traveller. With a fully equipped kitchen and free WiFi, Summer House has it all, even a tropical courtyard with a pool where you can dine under the stars or unwind at the end of a hectic day in the city.

If you're thinking about staying in town for a while, Summer House Newtown might be the ideal solution.

So come and relax by our swimming pool, choose from our excellent female only or mixed dorms or your own private room and find out what it's really like to live in the real Sydney. Anything else and you're just visiting!

The rooms were dirty and there were no lockers because some people used them all. The bathroom was not clean. I am glad it was only for 2 nights but I actually wanted to leave as soon as I arrived. Will not be staying here, would not recommend

Overall really enjoyed my stay. Everyone was sociable and had a good vibe. I had the bedroom with the ensuite which was so handy. Bedroom was comfy and pretty clean, quite spacious aswell. Kitchen was the only downside, just not the cleanest, and people not washing pots great.
