Travelling is never really a solo activity; even if you travel alone, it’s only a matter of time before you find others who share your attitude and appetite for adventure.
This is because travellers and backpackers are a social bunch - they like to share experiences and engage with others. It’s a beautiful thing in such a busy age to find other people happy to meet, talk face to face and share a love for the world...
Still, it’s all too easy to categorise the people that use hostels; in actual fact, you’ll often meet people who are just like you! Travellers staying in our Kings Cross accommodation in Sydney always have something in common.
Generally, there's likely to be a disproportionate amount of young people. Great if you are under 30 and looking for a night out - but also energizing and a lot of fun for older travellers.
So without labelling anyone, here’s a few examples of the Sydney backpackers you may meet during your stay
People who turned up late to our Kings Cross accommodation in Sydney and grabbed a room at the last minute.
Strange bunch as all they do is drop their bags, go to bed, then get up and do it all over again.
Newbie Adventure Traveller
Keep an eye out for the newbie adventure traveller - this is the guy or girl with all the maps laid out at breakfast, just hoping that someone will tell them the guided tour leaves in 5 minutes...
Super enthusiastic, especially at the start of their trip. And always at the party.
Seasoned Hostel Pro
They rock up with a faded rucksack; always have flip-flops and padlocks; know which bunk to grab before everyone else; aren’t bragging about where they’ve been and what they’ve done ( you’ll have to ask); have obscure tattoos from a Pacific Island you couldn’t pronounce and aren’t off everyday with their camera photographing - as they’ve already done that.
Packed with advice, tips, stories. Sometimes at the party, other times back at the hostel blogging about it.
The real beauty about staying in our Kings Cross accommodation is Sydney is the diversity of people you’ll meet. Labels might be fun for a blog posts, but on the ground it’s all about genuine relationships and experiences.
