When you’re coming to Sydney you’ll hear about Kings Cross, and people will tell you it’s a happening place.

Longtime favourite resting spot for backpackers and travellers, our Kings Cross Hostel has been putting people up for 20 years. So when it comes to understanding what it is you really need for your stay, we’re the people in the know.

Book in, secure your bags and get looking around the local area. Backpacking in Kings Cross is jumping and known for its nightlife and character. Still, there’s no worry what time you arrive, this Kings Cross hostel has a 24-hr reception and will sort you out a spot in no time.

If you are happy to bunk up there are 3,4,6 or 8 person dorms. If you’d rather you didn’t mix with the boys, then we’ve also got a female-only dorm. And for those of you who want a little privacy, check out our individual rooms.

It’s not just the location that sets us aside, it’s how we run the place. We know what a backpacker needs and what they don’t.

Internet and wi-fi, XBOX, DVD movie Library, Satellite TV, and fridges in all the rooms. We also appreciate how you need to know your rucksack is secure when you are out and about – so our dorm rooms come with individual lockers.

And don’t think that because this is a backpackers’ place it’s not going to have high standards – it’s rated as four-star by AAA tourism!

After a long day tramping the city streets of Sydney, or just setting yourself up for the next leg of your adventure, there’s plenty of comfort and support to rely on – there’s even free job advice as well as free laundry and linen!

We don’t care if you call us a hostel Sydney, youth hostel Sydney, cheap backpackers Sydney, Kings Cross backpackers or cheap accommodation Sydney, as long as you recognise that we offer the best value for money hostel in Sydney.

With so many years of experience, we know just what you want, and we pull this together into organised activities at our hostel in Kings Cross. Jump in on the entertainment schedule or get out onto the streets. The Jolly Swagman Backpackers Sydney is a place where many an Australian adventure has started!
