Property Description

PLEASE READ THE COVID REQUIREMENTS BEFORE BOOKING WITH US

Boardrider Backpacker is a purpose-built hostel, located in the heart of Sydney's Northern Beaches. Our central location offers a wide variety of restaurants, cafes, bars, nightclubs and shops right on our doorstep. Wake up to unlimited FREE wi-fi and FREE continental breakfast, then walk a mere 80 metres to iconic Manly Beach, recently named, 'best beach in Australia', by travellers like yourself. Or hop a short ferry ride to world-famous Sydney Harbour and the centre of Sydney. Later, hit our rooftop, where you can bring your own drinks and hang out with fellow backpackers.

We're also a working hostel with our very own Job Programme to help backpackers find casual, part-time and permanent work in and around the Northern Beaches. Weekly rates are available seasonally- so you can work, have fun and save for your future travels!

This perfect location gives you the opportunity to experience Australian beach culture at its best, while only being seven miles from the heart of the city. Whether it's surfing, shopping, or just relaxing on the beach, Manly truly has it all.

All bookings include FREE unlimited WIFI, FREE continental breakfast, as wells FREE snorkel and sports equipment hire. :)

Fabulous
Mar 13, 2024
I stayed at this hostel for over 2 months, and I must say, the people here are the best. The social aspect is fantastic, making some lifelong friends during my stay. The location is perfect, just a 1-minute walk from the beach. The staff are incredibly friendly and always ready to help. However as it’s the cheapest hostel around, you get what you pay for in terms of cleanliness, but overall, it's a fantastic social hostel. Would definitely recommend it for anyone looking to meet great people.

The common area is very pleasant, but the room was a mess and the bathrooms were dirty.
