Kings Cross evenings are where the real fun begins! Our night time events staff have a jam packed schedule with free entry and a free drink at various hand picked bars/clubs every night of your stay.
On XMAS eve there will be a XMAS boat party with over 500 backpackers where you will travel past Sydney Opera House and the Harbour bridge (tickets approx $25) and free entry and bus transfers to a night club after party.
On Xmas day we will come together as a hostel. Again our staff will cook up and serve a free Xmas lunch complete with party hats, bon bons and Xmas cheer so theres no reason to get home sick on this special day.
On NYE we will take you to a great local Sydney park, We will drink and play games during the day and then watch Sydney’s famous NYE fire works from the waters edge. Our two hostels will meet with another two hostels creating an awesome group of a few hundred backpackers.
On the 02 Jan some of our guests choose to stay on and some continue on their travels. For the ones leaving we all get together and send them off in style by throwing a massive party to complete this package. This will be an “Around the World” theme so bring your best outfits and dress as your country.
Kings Cross backpackers has predominately 4, 6, 8 and 10 bed dorms and at around 80 beds it is small enough for everyone to know each other and large enough for something to be happening every night of the week. All dorms include free bed linen and security lockers (BYO padlock). Our hostel is well suited to female guests with a 12 bed female dorm with private bathroom and 4 bed female dorm options.
Kings Cross Backpackers is centrally located. It is just off the famous "Golden Mile" which is Sydney's backpacker mecca and party district. Right in the heart of the action we are amongst great bars, clubs and walking distance to the city, Opera House and Harbour bridge. With buses just out front and Kings Cross Station 100m away it is easy to get to all tourist attractions. We highly recommend grabbing a bus to Bondi for the day or hop on the ferry to the famous Manly Beach. Just ask at reception if you need any help.
