Hi guys, Ive just seen this thread and was a lone traveller too, but don't worry because its so easy to make friends in the hostels you are in, as long as you try to interact with the people there. I have been over here for three months and the amount of brilliant people I have met along the way has been something which has made the trip amazing. I had the same concerns as most people commenting but don't worry as its almost impossible not to make friends and not only that but good friends. I stayed in the Jolly Swagman in Kings Cross and although that is a bit of a colourful part of Sydney it was a brilliant hostel. I'm heading back down to Sydney in December all being well, and so you never know I might see you there!

Happy Travels


Hi Steve, Im from Sheffield lol, be good to meet up if your around Sydney. We'll have the same common accent i suppose hahaha

Hey Steve

I'm staying in kings cross over New Years what the area like :)

Charlotte x

I found it to be very eclectic, the night life is brilliant, the main strip is full of strip clubs, prostitutes and crack heads, but on the other hand there are some really nice cool bars and some really nice shops and the area in general is pretty nice. It is close to some other nice places as well like Woolloomoolloo Bay which is really nice and is a walkable distance from Kings Cross. I really enjoyed my time in Kings Cross and would definitely recommend staying there and if possible at the Jolly Swagman.

Yeah Lesley it would be good to meet up with a fellow South Yorkshire traveller, although I doubt you'll have as commoner accent as me, I get ripped for it all the time being from Baaaarnsley! ha ha.

Where you thinking of staying in Sydney?
