I stayed here as part of the ground tour arrangement. Everything is just okay, the only good thing is they have a fridge in the dorm room which is unusual. The biggest problem is the location. Everyone has been warning me not to walk in the dark as the area is a bit dodgy, so better get a taxi (it...

Hi anitabE1671VP, Thank you for your review. We are proud to be located in a quiet residential area from which it only takes 10 min to walk into town. IGA supermarket, takeaways and restaurants are all within five min radius. As anywhere in the world, after dark, it is recommended to walk with a company or take a taxi. As...

This was the first ever hostel I've stayed at and it's very close to the IGA, bottle shop and good takeaway places. For the price you're paying its quite reasonable and the staff member doing checkins was friendly and helpful.

Stayed in a twin room which was a decent size, it just needed a fan in it! Having breakfast included was a bonus, one less thing to stress about. Pool looked clean and most of the rooms look out into the backyard.

My clothes are in love with the washing machine here im very lucky to have found such a sure winner of an accom oh date shunned by the rain but run by the fun. The tours run early but everyone is bright and cheery first thing in the morn.

Very low key and a walk across a bridge gets you into town. Not a party hostel. Great for rest and relaxation before or after a tour. Pool is great to cool off in. Lots of seating and the workers are always around working and happy to have a chat.

Ok if you are starting an early morning tour, but I was glad I was only spending 1 night. I would have prefered to be closer to town & food options. Staff were not very helpful & didn't seem to have much knowledge about the area.

I had an amazing time at the Backpackers. I was able to leave my stuff at the hostel during my trip to the outback and the staff was always very helpful and nice. The hostel is in easy walking diatance to all the shops and bars.

“Avoid being near the front entrance of the hostel; I was placed near the front my first night and was kept up all night by someone who was yelling violently from a room next to mine who I believe lives or takes extended stays in the front section. However, I was given a refund for that night and a room switch with no hestitations.”
