The Jolly Swagman has been welcoming Sydney backpackers for more than 20 years! Our hostel in Sydney is at the heart of Aussie backpacker world and situated slap bang in the centre of town.

We are open 24 hours, so new arrivals can get off the plane and get to us anytime. It’s all part of being a VIP Backpacker member that offers its guests a personal service.

From our hostel, Sydney (Kings Cross) and its nightlife are always within reach. Still, we’ve done all we can to make the hostel a place you can relax if you don’t fancy the nightlife: There are large common areas, a new TV room and even an outdoor terrace with great views over Sydney Harbour and its stunning skyline. As Sydney hostels go, you won’t find a better one!

Rooms are recently refurbished, which helped us get them rated as 4-star by ‘AAA Tourism’. And we even lay on an entertainment schedule for guests.
