FIND US ON MAP
We’re trying not to sound too full of ourselves here, but our hostel lies in one of the best locations in Sydney you can imagine. The Potts Point area (of which a part is famously known as ‘Kings Cross’) is on walking distance to the city centre, all mayor attractions and only a short train/bus ride to our city beaches.

“I showed up at the Funk House intending to stay a day or two, and left a few months later. The place seems to be a magnet for the most laid-back and interesting people—the rules are lax, the kitchen decent, and you can drink anywhere around the place.”
Wicked hostel Staff is lovely, they are always down to help you out with your travels or if you need a hand planning a day trip. Hostel is unique with art and is in a very central place if you want to view the harbour/botanical or head into the city. Slow thunderous applause for these guys.”
