Looking for where to stay in Sydney on a budget? Well, here are five outstanding Sydney hostels you need to check out.
I can’t wait to head to Sydney for a solo weekend later this month. When I started researching cheap Sydney accommodation, I noticed there were a lot of Sydney hostels. Some had good ratings, some… did not. So I thought it’d be helpful to compile a list of five of the best hostels in Sydney, so you find the perfect place for you.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for where to stay in Sydney in terms of location, I recommend checking out this post on The Nomadvisor. They’ve conveniently listed 10 of the best neighbourhoods to stay in Sydney.
The best Sydney hostels
Wake Up! Sydney Central
Spoiler alert: Wake Up! Sydney Central is where I’ll be staying in Sydney. It won points for multiple reasons. First, it has a very convenient location for a long weekend, as it’s next door to Central Station and in the heart of Sydney. Second, Wake Up! Sydney Central has reasonably priced private rooms, which is my preference when I’m not travelling long term. Finally, the hostel won me over with its great ratings and reviews. I mean, it won best hostel in Australia at last year’s HOSCAR Awards. Sold.
It also sounds like Wake Up! Sydney Central is a great option if you’re looking for a party hostel in Sydney, as it has an onsite bar/nightclub. The hostel hosts daily events too, like coastal walks, trivia nights, guided tours and more. I think I made the right choice.
I booked my accommodation through Hostelworld, as it offered the cheapest rates and refunds, which are necessary in the world’s current state. Check out Wake Up! Sydney Central on Hostelworld here.
