Built in 1881, the Lord Wolseley Hotel has changed little from its origins. It is a community institution of Ultimo, with an incredibly social bar, where locals from all walks of life and old friends meet for a few beers. This hotel truly represents Australian culture.

We are conveniently located near Chinatown and Central Station (Sydney’s main train station) in a quiet and leafy part of historic Ultimo, adjacent to a park. Darling Harbour is a 5 minute walk away and colourful Glebe, with its markets and cafes’ is a ten minute stroll.

Also nearby are Surry Hills and Newtown; famous for nightlife, and cafes and restaurants. Sydney locals tend not go to the city CBD, where most of the hostels are - unless it's to work or shop. Once you have seen the major attractions our staff can give you local advice that isn't in the guide books.

The Lord Wolseley Hotel is also one of the oldest pubs in Sydney and certainly one of the untouched, which has always been open and serving non-stop since 1881. This hotel will appeal to people with an interest in old historic pubs and appreciate a simple, clean but spacious room in a building that is over 130 years old.

There are six shared bathrooms for only seven rooms without ensuites, meaning you’ll never have to wait for a shower.

We want guests to be aware that while we do have a kitchen for guests, it is basic (with one stove/oven) and therefore our hotel is better suited for travelers who intend to eat out mainly. Chinatown is a few minutes walk away and offers very inexpensive restaurants. There are also free public BBQ facilities in a cliff-top park 100 metres away.

Our restaurant serves affordable and delicious meals for lunch and dinner 6 days a week. Our ground floor public bar closes at midnight at the latest and is open 7 days. We also have some of Australia’s best blues musicians play live in the bar every Saturday night between 8:30 and 10:30.

Reception Opening Hours:

Monday - Friday: 10:30am - Midnight.

Saturday 11:30am - Midnight:

Sunday: 11.30pm - 10pm. 

To be eligible to stay in a dorm; you must be under the age of 40, unless you are a visitor from overseas. Note, when booking out all the beds in an entire dorm this rule is irrelevant.

Under 18s must be accompanied by guardians.

Please note that outside of peak hour we are about $30 taxi from the airport.

Both airport shuttle buses and the train from the airport cost $15 per person, so it is not cost-effective to use these services unless you are traveling alone.

Please be aware that because our reception closes at midnight (and 10pm on Sundays), if your flight lands within 1.5 hours of reception closing, you should definitely catch a taxi, as it will be cheaper than arranging a late check-in if you are late.

There needed to be more of a "welcome" note in the room telling people who stayed in the rooms about the facilities.
