About the Roundabout

September 27, 2016

“The Roundabout Crew” is an Australian comedy channel with a large number of comedy videos featuring some of the top comedy YouTubers in Australia.


The Australiana Hostel is a narrative driven comedy for YouTube set in a fictional hostel in central Sydney featuring an international array of YouTubers. Two young Sydney siders (played by YouTubers Tom Armstrong – The Roundabout Crew and Ben French – Frenchy Sungaattack) inherit the keys to a crumbling hostel each on their own mission to see the hostel succeed but for totally different reasons: Tom, sees the management of the hostel as his calling in life, whereas Frenchy is a classic Australian bogan who is just there to sleep with a girl from every country. As they go about their daily chores managing the hostel, they are met with a constant pipeline of challenges that provide great comedic moments. There is even a recurring nemesis who works at the competing hostel down the road, always trying to sabotage the boys’ plans and steal the hostel guests.

Each webisode will feature either an international or local YouTube personality starring as the unsuspecting guest backpacker caught up in the weekly misadventures of the hostel staff and guests This outside perspective helps showcase Australia from the point-of-view of travellers and backpackers. Despite the boys’ well-meaning and sometimes elaborate attempts at pleasing their guests, there is always chaos and cultural clashes, which lead to disaster and unexpected outcomes, constantly made public on the hostel’s website review page.
