With a booking of three or more nights pay only $8 for your shuttle from the airport to the hostel. Or $15 if you are staying for less than three nights. Simply call us , or our free call number, once you've made your way through customs and we will send one of our drivers over to collect you.

From Kingsford Smith Airport to Hostel
There is a train connected to both the domestic and international airport. Cost is approx. $18 one way. Ask airport staff to direct you to the underground train. You will travel from the airport to Central Railway station. Depending on the train connection, you may have to transfer to a city train. You need to get off at St James Station which is on the city loop.

You need to catch a city loop train that stops at St James Station. St James Station is underground. You will come up onto Elizabeth Street Walk through Hyde Park towards St Mary’s Cathedral. Cross College Street at the Cathedral and come down St Mary’s Road turning left into Sir John Young Crescent.

Most interstate and country buses end their journey at Central Railway Station. You have a choice of either catching a train from Central to St James Station, see details above, or walking.

Our hostel is located opposite the Domain Gardens.
