Hotel and Accommodation Options

At FurJAM we realise that there are plenty of places for you guys to stay during the event, so we’ve taken the time not only to list the hotel nearest Saturday’s event but a few different hotels around the city and in the area. Keep in mind most of the prices listed are sourced from the official websites, so have a good look at discount hotel websites such as Booking.com, Wotif and Trivago for better deals.

Main Hotel

While this year's FurJAM isn’t hosted at this hotel, we will literally be next door - so staying here is the best option if you wish to be right next to the action.


Whether you’re on a budget or wanting a room for 8 people, backpackers are a great cheap way of staying in Sydney and bunking with friends. Here’s a few options we know are pretty well rated.

  •   YHA Central
    Location: 11 Rawson Place, Sydney (corner of Rawson Place and Pitt Street)
    Website: www.yha.com.au/Hostels/NSW/Sydney-Surrounds/Sydney-Central-Backpackers-Hostel
    Phone: (02) 9218 9000

    Sydney Central YHA is one of the largest and most popular hostels in Sydney. It is a great choice for those who want to be close to transport as it is right next to Central Station, Sydney's major transport hub. It offers 4, 6 and 8 share dorms, as well as twin and triple rooms and is close to internet cafes and a breakfast bar.

  •   YHA Railway Square
    Location: 8-10 Lee St Sydney (Behind the Adina Hotel)
    Website: www.yha.com.au/Hostels/NSW/Sydney-Surrounds/Railway-Square
    Phone: (02) 9281 9666

    Railway Square YHA is another option, close to Sydney Central Station and several good cafes and eateries. Unlike Central, Railway square allows mixed gender 8 share dorms, and is unique as many of these dorms are re-purposed train carriages.

  •   Bounce Backpackers
    Location: 28 Chalmers St, Surry Hills NSW 2010
    Website: bouncehostel.com.au
    Phone: (02) 9281 2222

    Bounce Hostel is on the opposite side of Central station to Railway Square YHA, is right next to the Tipple Bar and has convenience stores and food close by. It has also won the Hostel of the Year Award in Australia for 2014.

Low-Range Hotels

After a hotel but sticking to a tight budget? Try these... They aren’t 5 star resorts but they’re a comfortable place to relax between events.

Mid-Range Hotels

For those who want a few luxuries with their stay without a high end price tag we suggest trying one of these hotels.

High-Range Hotels

Feeling fancy? These are a few hotels where the service and amenities are worth the cost.

Travel Information

Sydney is a big place, and the traffic is like most major cities (i.e. terrible). So when getting around, whether travelling to events or just going out to see the sights, we recommend that you use Sydney’s multiple avenues of public transport including buses, trains and light rail.
