We were staying in Sidney 5 nights and we chose Hump Backpackers cause of low rates and good position (king's cross is not as messy as they tell ya!). Confortable beds, lots of shower and toilets, cleaning team every morning (REALLY CLEANING)... Free BBQ and airport trasnfer, free AMAZING pancakes by Timbo. Carpets could be better maybe, that's the only... More

Hump Backpackers (HB) is arguably the best hostel I've stayed in during my travels. In relation to the staff, this was the most pleasant aspect of my stay. Upon arrival, I was welcomed and helped by the owner's brother, who went out of his way to make me feel comfortable. HB staff are always organising events every night - there... More

Great location, Clean rooms, fabulous staff, amazing pancakes by Timbo and overall a great place to stay! Met so many great people here who I ended up travelling around Australia with, which was great as I was a single traveller and apprehensive of being on my own. Would highly recommend staying here. Nate and Ady are doing an amazing job!!!

I always relied on TA for my hotel bookings when going oversea and Hump Backpackers reviews were so good and this made me booked this hostel for 6 nights stay in Sydney. Location wise was very good, less than 3 min walk to Kings Cross station and bus stops were all nearby. Easy access to shopping malls and restaurant. Despite... More

I'm travelling Australia with a friend and so far looking at reviews on Trip Advisor and HostelBookers has been very helpful. It wasn't in the case of Hump Backpackers. It's given 4.5 stars on Trip Advisor so we expected a very nice hostel like various others we stayed at with similar ratings. We were incredibly disappointed when we arrived. We... More

Recently stayed here for 4 nights with a mate in a 8 bed dorm. The room itself was good, although at times it seemed a little cramped, 6 beds would've likely suited the room better. The beds themselves were comfortable, and the room included a sink and a mirror. The hostel wasn't the cleanest, but it certainly wasn't filthy either.... More

I stayed here on my own after a few months travelling with friends. The friendly and lively atmosphere made it very easy to make new friends straight away. Events put on by the hostel gets everyone involved. Free breakfast, WiFi, bbq etc were greatly appreciated. I would recommend this hostel to anyone.

Had the most amazing time, met some great people, including the owner who is a very awesome guy. They really make a lot of fun happen, and have everything you could need besides that, like wifi, a good kitchen, clean bathrooms, a courtyard for smoking, tv room for chilling out, and a room for partying til the wee hours.

Really friendly receptionist close to city centre and supermarket. In the middle of red light district noise went through to 3-4am each night although earplugs are available. Other than that quite a nice stay with good links with shuttle company to get to and from airport :)
