Without a doubt the best hostel to stay in if you are visiting Sydney. I started my travels here in August 2011. I walked down the stairs to reception a scared 18 year old lone traveller. I left 7 months later with a group of friends I will never lose contact with and enough photos and memories to fill a...

I stayed in the Jackaroo Hostel twice during my stay in Australia and can’t wait to go back. The location is just perfect if you like to go sightseeing, go out and meet people or hang out on one of the beautiful beaches. It’s next to the Kings cross station where you have supermarkets, restaurants, bars and nightclubs around. The...

My personal experience of Jackaroo was a positive one resulting in me staying there for 8 months Location is excellent as the hostel is next door to a main train station, has various bus stops near by and there are plenty of shops, supermarkets, bars and the city centre are within walking distance. Living in Kings Cross didn't bother me...

This hostel by far is the most memorable place I have stayed in my travels. It was by sheer luck that I ended up here, but I am so glad I did. The hostel itself is amazing, but it's the owners and staff that really make this place top the list. They know exactly what backpackers are looking for and...

This place is wicked. I intended to stay in Sydney for only a couple of months, but ended up there for just over 6, in no small part due to the Jackaroo. The place is extremely well looked after and clean, has lots of facilities, and has plenty of stuff for you to do. Every day there are activities for...

There is no place like home but the Jackaroo is pretty close ! I spent almost two months there and I definitely recommend this hostel to any travelers. First of all, the reception is excellent and everyone working there (Raquel, Rob, Jade, Tom, Sarah,...) makes you feel comfortable and satisfied. Secondly the price is very reasonable for the location and...

This hostel is amazing. The stuff is really friendly and helps you out with whatever you need. You get free breakfast and free internet access. Some of the rooms are a bit small but there's plenty of space to hang out in the reception area where you can meet many cool people so you just need your room to sleep...

The Jackaroo was my first stop in Australia as a traveller from Ireland. I was wary of staying in a hostel beforehand, especially one in the big bad "Cross" but I knew I had to experience the true Australian backpacking lifestyle. And I couldn't have picked a better place to start! Free Wifi, Free Breakfast, Fantastic location (next to a...
