ORIGINAL - FIRST - BEST BACKPACKER HOSTEL ACCOMMODATION
The Original Backpackers was the very first backpacker hostel in the world.
Our family owned hostel is a beautiful Victorian building, it was converted into backpacker accommodation in 1980. At that time, there were Youth Hostels, but the term “backpackers” was introduced by the original owners of the Original Backpackers.
It is a brilliant location come check us out and find your home away from home!
EXCELLENT HOSTEL ACCOMMODATION
The Original Backpackers is situated in a beautiful tree lined street in the heart of Sydney’s Kings Cross.
Within a short (1 minute) stroll you’ll have access to plenty of cool bars, cafes, shops, fashion, supermarkets, post office, general stores… you name it, it’s all here in Kings Cross.
ON THE DOOR STEP OF SYDNEY HARBOUR & CBD
Plus just at the end of our street experience panoramic views to the Harbour Bridge, Sydney Harbour Heads and Sydney Tower.
You can either walk or take a 2 min train ride to Sydney’s CBD or Sydney Harbour to do some site seeing. The 30 minute walk to the Opera House via Mrs Macquarie’s chair in the Botanical Gardens is one of the best things you can do in Sydney. If you are in the mood for a dip in the ocean head down to famous Bondi Beach or catch the ferry to Manly Beach.
While you are in Sydney, you must visit Bondi Beach. It's Australia’s most iconic, world famous beach.
While you’re at Bondi, enjoy a swim, the soft and clean white sand, reliable waves. Also enjoy the laid back Café’s, fine dining, nightclubs and relaxed casual pubs or chill out at any of the picnic and BBQ spots provided.
