Four backpackers were taken to hospital, but all are in a stable condition. Reports differ as to how many guests were evacuated.

The blaze began in a foyer bin at Noah's Bondi Beach, on Campbell Parade, around 3.45am (AEDT) on Thursday and quickly filled the building with smoke.

The staff member said there was smoke damage to the building but the hostel was "still open for business".
