  • Base Sydney: Free breakfast, a business centre, and free WiFi make Base the best value in town.

  • The Village Surry Hills: In-the-know backpackers should check out cheap hostels in Sydney’s Surry Hills neighbourhood. You can relax outdoors on the terrace or in the communal kitchen.
  • Funk House Backpackers: Kings Cross is chockers with budget hostel options, but we love this one for its colourful Art Deco design, bright rooftop patio, and practical amenities like laptop safes. There’s free WiFi and a television and the common area, and a free continental breakfast to kick your day off right.
