About Billabong Gardens

Billabong Gardens is a unique combination of hostel and hotel. With a mixture of 6 bed dorms with or without bathroom, and a range of private hotel rooms for couples, groups and families, we are one of Sydney's most diverse budget hotels.

Billabong Gardens combines all facilities of a modern mega-hostel with the intimate service of a small budget hotel. Internet in our common areas is free, and our WiFi is fast and works throughout the hotel. Our kitchen is well cared for and cleaned regularly. There is a dining room, a large lounge with library and TV, and on top of that, we are the only hostel in Sydney with an outdoor pool! Surrounding our pool is a courtyard and bbq area where you can work on your tan during the day or dine under the stars at night.

Billabong Gardens is not an all-night party hostel, so we are an excellent choice for those who work or just want to make the best of their days. If you enjoy a drink in the evening, our courtyard, BBQ and dining areas are buzzing social hubs and open nightly to 11 PM. Because Billabong Gardens is not a mega-hostel, it is easy to meet others and make new friends. In fact, if you stay for a while, you will be part of our family!

Situated in the centre of groovy Newtown, Billabong Gardens is one of the best located hostels in central Sydney. You'll find us in quiet side street of famous King Street, Sydney's prime art, music, restaurant and nightlife strip. Some of Sydney's best restaurants, live venues, pubs and bars are within minutes from our door. Different from the downtown tourist hubs, Newtown is an area popular with locals who know where it's all happening. Central station and the city is just 2 km away, and there is a choice of buses and trains to get you there in minutes.
