This guide was written for travelers who are backpacking Australia and searching for cheap accommodations and potential work, particularly fruit picking work for their second-year visa. We’ve collected a list of working hostels for backpackers and provide you with as much information as we can for each of them. We try to let you know about the hostels’ cleanliness, service, security, location, price, facilities, contact details, user reviews, and whether or not they can help you find work. A few of the hostels on this list don't offer work but they're included in this list for people who are between jobs and want cheap accommodations as they travel the country. We don’t have any affiliation with these hostels.
