***We are a genuine international youth hostel for travelers aged between 18 - 35 with a foreign passport only***

Nate’s Place Backpackers offers affordable accommodation and is just a short walk to Kings Cross Station. We are perfectly situated in between the bustling Kings Cross nightlife district and the central city so you can explore all Sydney has to offer with ease. And if you feel like relaxing you are only a short walk away from Hyde Park where you can sit down and listen to the daily buskers.

Managed by a brand new, fun-loving team, we’re the perfect hostel to accommodate you on your adventure to Sydney!

Just two train stops or a short walk away you’ll find Westfield Tower and shopping centre, Darling Harbour, Hyde Park and an array of other city attractions. Two stops in the other direction, you’ll find the world famous Bondi Beach and beautiful coastal walks. And if you don’t feel like going that far you’ll find a tasty selection of bars and clubs right on your doorstep.

Free unlimited WiFi Internet is available around the clock and we offer a free continental breakfast every morning with tea and coffee available all day. We also have an amazing rooftop with scenic views of the city (including the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge) which is perfect for chilling with friends, having a twilight dinner or even a couple of drinks!

We offer a free airport shuttle service to guests staying 4 nights or longer (pick up only) making your airport transfer super simple.

We have a fully equipped kitchen, separate male and female bathrooms with plenty of showers (so you’re never waiting around), washers and dryers for all those travel-worn clothes and chilled TV room with Foxtel (over 100 channels!) for when you just fancy relaxing.

We organise events every night so make sure you check out the notice board, see what’s going on, and get involved.

Prices are per person per night.

Directions to the hostel:
From Sydney International Airport:
• Shuttle Bus – This will take you right to our front door and costs $14. Once you arrive at the airport, call the shuttle service on +612 9661 1170 +612 9661 1170 and they will arrange to meet you. Public phones are located within the airport terminal. If you have booked for 4 or more nights, we will pay for this shuttle service for you once you arrive at the hostel (Airport to Hostel only). Please do not pay the driver - we will arrange all payments from the hostel. Note that the last shuttle bus leaves the airport at 7 pm.
• Train – Follow the signs through the departure plaza of the airport to the Train Station. Purchase a train ticket to Kings Cross Train Station (cost $15.90/$16.70 (domestic/international) for adult one way or $11.40/11.80 (domestic/international) for concession one way).

All Taxis are fitted with GPS devices so they will know how find it. Be aware that sometimes taxi drivers will ask you which way to take to determine whether you are familiar with the city or not. If you say you don’t know, they may take you for a long journey to increase the price. Tell the driver to take “Southern Cross Drive” and you won’t have a problem.
