About Wollongong Backpackers Keiraleagh

Keiraleagh House is a Heritage Building full of character and charm. We are in the centre of town which has a thriving night life , and many restaurants for different tastes within a close walk. There is a great cafe culture present, in town and along the beach front. Keiraleagh House provides affordable hostel accommodation within the city of Wollongong, and makes an excellent base to enjoy the many outstanding activities and attractions of the area. We are only a few minutes walk from many golden sandy beaches, which are well known for their iconic surf breaks. Wollongong Harbour is also the only point on the eastern coast of Australia which has two lighthouses, and is a good place to relax , sight see, or fish on the wharf. There is also a bike and running track which runs along the beaches in wollongong, for those that want to keep fit.
We have a large Balinese inspired backyard, where you can chill out and socialise with others at the BBQ area, lay in the sun on a balinese daybed, or relax and read a book on the grassed lawn. There is a fire pit in the courtyard to keep you warm on the cooler nights and to inspire much conversation with fellow travellers and infuse a bohemian atmosphere.
The house features a communal self-catering kitchen with a microwave and commercial cooker, barbecue area, lounge room and laundry facilities for guest use. For those who prefer to socialize with their fellow guests there is a lovely outside eating area.
