Welcome to Funk House Backpackers



We have the following room types available at Funk House: 3, 4 and 6 bed mixed-dorm; 3 and 4 bed female-only dorms; single over double private rooms and twin private rooms. Our rooms are spacious and clean with large lockable storage lockers for every guest! Next to every bed is a personal double power socket, plus you can access the free unlimited WiFi from every room.


Each level of Funk House has large male and female shower and toilet blocks. The second level has additional toilets so you should never have to wait. Our water system ensures that hot water is always available around the clock and our cleaning team works hard to make sure the facilities are clean and ready for use at all times.


Funk House has a huge TV room located on the first floor. We have constructed an awesome three-tiered grandstand seating with plenty of comfy cushions. We have a huge flat-screen TV with over 100 cable TV channels, plus a huge selection of free DVDs. To top it off, every Sunday we have movie night with free popcorn!


If you have a late flight and don’t know what to do with your bags, don’t stress as we provide free luggage storage to all guests on the day of their checkout. How good is that! Just chat to our reception team who will show you where the bags are stored.

We provide a huge selection of books to use while at the hostel.


The Guest Laundry is located next to the rooftop. The commercial-grade machines cost $4 per wash, $4 per dry and we have washing powder available at Reception for 50c.


Funk House has a large, clean and tidy guest kitchen with gas stove cook tops, microwaves, toasters and instantaneous boiling water . We provide free breakfast including cereal, toast and spreads every morning. Plus we provide free tea and coffee all day. On Sundays we provide free pancakes between 9 am – 11 am. Next to the kitchen is a large communal dry food storage area. In addition you’ll also find commercial-grade fridges to keep your food cool and fresh!


Funk House has an awesome private rooftop for guests to enjoy! Why not enjoy the Sydney sunshine and meet new friends over a few beers after a day of sightseeing. Make sure you check out our cool graffiti mural and don’t miss our free weekly BBQ on the rooftop. We have both an internal and external courtyard so you can still enjoy it during wet weather.

Many of our social events are hosted here – including our awesome pre-parties!


We have high speed WiFi infrastructure installed throughout the entire hostel to ensure that no area of the hostel is missed. Plus, unlike most other Sydney hostels, it’s 100% free with no download restrictions! How good is that!

Above all else, the security of our guests is our highest priority. CCTV is in operation throughout the building and we follow a strict ‘Guests Only’ policy within the hostel. We use a sophisticated bi-lock key mechanism on all doors.
