Sydney Central Backpackers sits in the heart of the most beautiful city in the world, just minutes from our doorstep are the famous Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Wake up to our free breakfast every morning and experience what Sydney has to offer!

Spend your morning strolling through the botanical gardens located just next door then head over to Bondi Beach. Come home and enjoy a traditional Aussie Barbie on our beautiful rooftop garden with the spectacular Sydney city skyline and the Opera House as the backdrop. Then, after dark, enjoy music and dance at one of the many bars or pubs in Sydney's most colorful district 'The Cross'.

Please ensure that you make a request if you wish to stay in the same room when booking on short notice.
