"The beds were nice and clean and the bathrooms had key card access. Everything required keys and there were luggage lockers right in the room! I especially liked they had charging ports inside the lockers."

About 790 on George Backpackers

Our aim is to be Sydney’s best value hostel. You won’t find a better priced, better located and better staffed backpacker haven. Want to meet other travellers? Then hang out in “the basement” - a real traveller’s hub. It’s the perfect place to hang out before you head out on the town. Or relax and enjoy a conversation, share some stories with your new friends, play some tunes, use the net or Wi-Fi, cook up a storm in the fully stocked kitchen, have a late night snack or even do your laundry. Up on level two is our supped-up common room. Settle in and watch a film on our big screen TV, or jump onto one of our computer terminals and get in touch with friends back home. You can even hang out here after you’ve checked out while you wait for your bus, plane or train! Oh, did we mention checkout was at 11am?

And if you’re still feeling lost, come have a chat with one of the staff. Between us we speak English, Spanish, Korean, Arabic, Vietnamese and Nepalese, and we could probably fumble our way through some others if we had, so there will always be someone around you can speak to!

So, why stay with us?
• The only hostel in town offering an 11am checkout!
• No dorms bigger than 6 beds
• Power-points in lockers to charge your iPods, mobiles and laptops
• 24hour reception
• Just three minutes from central station and bus terminal
• All bed and linen provided
• Luggage storage

At 790 on George you’ve made it to the true centre of Sydney and chances are you are only a few minutes’ walk from your destination. Whether you’re heading to the Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Rocks, Darling Harbour, the Botanic Gardens, or Sydney’s fabulous galleries and museums, they are just moments away on foot.

790 do not cater to group bookings and as such we cannot guarantee bookings of 2 or more people will be in the same dorm (although we will try our best!). Contact us if you have any questions!
