A cosy, friendly and secure hostel in the heart of the Sydney CBD, Big is the perfect spot for school groups and solo travellers. Big offers 24/7 on-site staff, a range of room types (all with AC) and up-to-date security and sanitising practices. A few minutes’ walk from Central Station and light rail and within walking distance of Hyde Park, Chinatown, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, Botanical Gardens, Sea Life Aquarium and several of Sydney’s famous museums and theatres, we’re just a quick bus trip from some of Sydney’s beautiful beaches. Big is your base for exploring what Sydney has to offer.
We offer a free toast and cereals breakfast daily and all-day tea and coffee in our fully-equipped kitchen, with large commercial fridges and shelving for food and beverage storage, cooled filtered water, instant boiling water and food preparation space and utensils. Check-in is from 1PM, and check-out is by 11AM. Before and after check-in we’ll store your bags while you enjoy the comfortable common area and kitchen. The kitchen, common room and laundry are all open 24/7 for comfort and convenience. Air conditioning is provided throughout the building, in the common areas and in every room.
Unlimited free WiFi is available throughout the building, even on our famous rooftop, where you’ll find a perfect opportunity to socialise in the sun. If you’re worn out from your travel or just want a quiet day, relax on one of the many couches in our spacious common room and grab a book from the well-stocked bookcase.
Big has been taking its responsibility seriously since COVID began. We’re continually updating our procedures, as well as providing sanitiser and social distancing requirements, in order to play our part in preventing infection and getting travel going again.
The rooms at BIG are a selection of mixed and female-only 8, 6 and 4 share dormitories, plus a large range of private rooms (singles, twins, doubles and 4-person family rooms), most with private bathrooms (options available when booking. Each floor is serviced by both an elevator and stairs. We take security seriously so the hostel is only accessible by key overnight and CCTV cameras are throughout the common areas of the building.
