From the airport:

If you stay 4 nights or more we will pay for your Airport shuttle (pick up from airport only) however you must use “Sydney Shuttles”. Do not give the driver any money, just say you're going to Kings cross backpackers on the free shuttle and when you arrive the driver will pick up a prepaid voucher from our reception.

The shuttle runs from 7am to 7pm. outside of these times you must make your own way to the hostel by train or taxi).

If you are stuck or have any problems call the shuttle company in the first instance on 02 9661 1170. If problems persist then call our hostel reception and we will assist.

Please follow the below instructions exactly to avoid confusion:

From the International Terminal:
When you exit customs turn left and walk to the blue wall meeting point located opposite ANZ bank. Look for the Sydney Shuttle Bus crew member in a green shit. If you cannot find them call them on 02 9661 1170.

From the Domestic Terminal:
Sydney has two domestic terminals, T2 and T3. For both terminals the Sydney Shuttle pickup area is inside at baggage Carousel number 5. Look for the Sydney Shuttle employee in a green shirt. He walks back and forth between the two terminals so there is sometimes a 10 min wait. If it is any longer call Sydney Shuttles direct on 02 9661 1170 to arrange a pick up. Make sure you wait inside at carousel number 5!

By Train from Airport:
Follow the signs through the departure plaza of the airport to the Train Station. Purchase a train ticket to Kings Cross Train Station (cost $16.40/$17.20 (domestic/international) for adult one way or $12.50/12.90 (domestic/international) for concession one way). At either of these stations go to Platform 1. Catch the train to Central Station and change to Platform 24 (the Eastern Suburbs and Illawarra Line) for your train to Kings Cross.

By Train from Central Station:
Purchase a train ticket to Kings Cross Train Station (cost $3.80 for an adult one way or $1.90 for a concession one way)

Once you exit the ticket turnstiles at Kings Cross Station, veer to the right and go up the escalators, turn right onto Darlinghurst Road, walk 30 metres then turn left onto Bayswater Road, follow the road 300metres down to the end of the street, and Kings Cross Backpackers is located on your right, number 79 Bayswater Road. Keep an eye out for our famous Orange door.
