Plus, as we believe in fun with a capital F, we also offer a jam-packed schedule of entertainment, like our world famous pizza nights, which we run seven nights a week.

Alternatively, if you want to explore the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the world’s greatest city, then you have Sydney right on your doorstep. Or if you’re all partied out, then you can always retire to your super comfy room for some well deserved “me-time”.

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.
