Description

Located in the heart and soul of Sydney, the Funkhouse is a unique, upbeat hostel famous for it's friendly social atmosphere and funky murals.

With only three-to-four beds per dorm you can book a room with your mates!

At the Funk House all our doubles and twins have TVs, fridges and duvets and rooms have fans to beat that summer heat. With its large common areas, cable TV and a chilled rooftop terrace area with our famous weekly BBQs, you can relax and sink a couple of beers while watching the sun set over the city and harbour. There's a fully equipped kitchen for you to use and laundry facilities, too.

During your stay @ The Funkhouse you'll receive free breakfast, free WiFi, and one hour free Internet access on our public computers! You will also get a free walking tour of Sydney, free travel advice and free bed linen. When you arrive you will get a free Welcome Pack, including food and drink vouchers, a free sim and phone card and free job-seeking membership.

From The Funk House it's an easy walk to Sydney's most famous attractions including the Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Botanical Gardens, The Rocks, Sydney Tower, Darling Harbour and Sydney Aquarium and Taronga Zoo.

The Funk House is just 200m from the train/metro and bus station, giving you easy access to Sydney's best beaches including Bondi Beach and Manly Beach (where the first World Surfing Championships were held). If you're up the challenge, learn to surf! Or if not, just kick back and work on the tan!

Kings Cross has everything to offer in terms of entertainment. This means that all the best bars, clubs and restaurants are right on your doorstep!
