The Captain Cook Backpackers is a small friendly hostel located above The Captain Cook Hotel in trendy Paddington

Here at The Captain Cook Backpackers we are well known for our friendly and helpful staff. We know how scary it can be moving to a new city so we endeavour to make all of our guests feel welcome.

Located on Flinders Street, we are a short walk to the trendy cafes and bars of Surry Hills and Oxford Street and we are only a 10 minute walk to Central Station. Also located across the road from the hostel is the Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground where you can watch a variety of sports such as cricket, AFL, soccer and Rugby.

We offer FREE WIFI: Which is great as most hostels in Sydney charge for it, and we also give each one of our new guests a free drink voucher as a welcome gift.

Facilities include cable TV and leather sofa in our newly decorated living room, DVD's and a DVD player and possibly the best feature is our large rooftop with a free BBQ and city views: Perfect for watching the Sydney sunset at the end of a long day.

Sydney has a large and upcoming music scene and we are very excited to be a part of it. We have live comedy every Wednesday and live music every Thursday/Friday/Saturday and some Sundays. Check out of Facebook page for our weekly line ups! It was only last year that Greenday played at our venue. Also,we are located close to other live music venues such as the Horedon Pavillion and Oxford Art Factory which have famous bands playing every week.

Further more, the hostel is located near to Fox studios entertainment complex which has a cinema, bowling alleys, laser tag, bars and restaurant.

Within the hostel itself, we offer a $10 backpacker food menu as well as $5 house beers and $6 house spirits and wine for all of our guests.

We like to think of ourselves as a little Sydney family and we look forward to meeting you soon.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call or send an email!!

See you soon!
