Welcome to the Jackaroo Hostel!

Sydney's newest hostel, The 'Jackaroo Hostel' is more than you could ever expect. Its unique, it's different. It's an experience, because we want it that way.

The Jackaroo Hostel, located in the hip area of Kings Cross, is a cool haven for the international traveller, in the heart of Sydney Australia.
The Jackaroo Hostel is a family run hostel. Owned and operated by best friends and brothers Robert and Jade Smith.

We understand that the Jackaroo Hostel will be the centre of your Sydney experience, and we want it to be memorable. We love Sydney, and we want you to love it too. That's why we will go out of our way to help you with anything we can. We can help organise all the usual "must see" tourist attractions like Sydney Opera House, Bondi Beach, Taronga Zoo or the Blue Mountains. Then, when you are done with all the hustle and bustle, we can show you the Sydney that we know. Maybe get out of the city for a hike, go climbing or maybe do some camping. We can also show you where to eat, drink, party or just relax with some friends.

We do this because we absolutely love it. We love to see the smile on our guests faces when they return for the day. We are proud to offer all our guests a pleasant stay in a welcoming friendly and comfortable environment.

For a fun and memorable stay in Sydney, check out 'The Jackaroo Hostel' in Kings Cross. You'll love it!

We hope to see you soon.
