Accommodation Information

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.

Location Information

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.
