Cheap Hostels in Sydney

The Globe Backpackers Sydney is located in Kings Cross on the main road (Darlinghurst Road). They have a few large chillout spaces, even a big TV, comfy chairs and couches. The smoker room with the big window to the street and the hard wooden chairs looks rather scruffy though. Also they offer a free basic breakfast, but don’t expect much. The dorm room we stayed in was an 8 share – however, there was a door to another dormitory, resulting in a crowd of people passing through all the time, making it literally a 16 share when you’re staying in the first room. Rooms were so-so clean, but bathrooms looked simply disgusting. But it’s without a doubt a good place to meet all kinds of people. The location in Kings Cross is OK, even the area and crowds are still a bit weird. Sydney has done a lot of upgrading in recent years in Kings Cross, so it doesn’t look as bad anymore as it used to be some 5-10 years ago.

An acceptable place to stay if you don’t mind a little dirt and the noisy party atmosphere at night. Otherwise you might want to stay somewhere else (more expensive).

Bernly Private Hotel Sydney - Entrance Bernly Private Hotel Sydney (Potts Point) is located in Kings Cross (just behind the Hungry Jacks) like most of the other cheap backpacker places in Sydney. It’s in a rather old building, and looks somehow special compared to "normal" backpacker hostels. But for some reason the tap water was dirty and full of sand!!! We were told this might be caused by the construction site infront of the door. The toilets weren’t that great either. The doorm rooms are clean and have a small fridge. The german manager Martin (the one with the ear ring) is really nice and very helpful.

Nice building, but just a so-so place to stay. You can probably get a better deal elsewhere.
