Staying in a hostel is also a great way to meet fellow travellers, get insider tips on what to do and where to go, and enjoy all the facilities you need for a hassle-free stay such as free wifi, communal kitchen, laundry and bathroom facilities, and fun activities and tours.
In Sydney, some of the favourite areas for backpackers to stay are Bondi Beach, Coogee Beach, Kings Cross and the City, and the iconic northern beach of Manly. Student-friendly yet fairly central, Glebe and Newtown are also popular with backpackers and budget travellers staying in Sydney.
There are also many other backpacker accommodation providers in Sydney and NSW. If camping is more your style, pitch a tent in one of hundreds of caravan parks or designated camping spots within NSW’s National Parks.
NSW boasts a strong network of accredited businesses catering to the needs of budget travelers, with hostels, hotels and budget travel companies all offering great deals.
