Elephant enjoys one of the best locations in Sydney. It’s only a few minutes walk to the city center and Sydney's main attractions like the Opera House, harbour and limitless shopping and dining! We have been refurbishing the hostel and although she is a beautiful old building our rooms, showers, and communal areas are fresh and clean.

Rooms

What to expect!

The Hostel enjoys large accommodation rooms, roomy corridors and a heritage staircase of a by-gone era as it was built as a hotel in 1894.  Set over 4 levels, the top 3 floors accommodate a variety of dormitories and private rooms with each level having communal ladies and men’s shower blocks and separate toilets.  All accommodation rooms are provided with bed linen and lockers.

The ground floor houses a communal kitchen and large dining area, TV room, foyer area our reception and our Cafe.

Woolloomooloo, the gentrified city fringe suburb of the hostel is just opposite Hyde Park and a few minute walk to the city center. It is 10 minute walk to the Sydney Opera House or 15 minutes’ bus ride from Bondi Beach. Enjoy taking the underground travelator across from our hostel to Hyde Park! We are lucky enough to have bike racks right out the front of the Hostel to secure your bikes.

The hostel caters for domestic as well as international travellers and we offer budget priced accommodation with fun and friendly service.  

 We also welcome disabled guests and have a large lift that can accommodate wheel chairs.
