    AVOID AVOID AVOID.. ok, we were not expecting great things for the price we paid, and we're not picky travellers when it comes to accommodation, but this place is by far the worst hostel we've ever stayed in, and we've been travelling around the world for 2 years now! We were given a room right behind the "common area" where people can socialize. SOCIALIZE, an unknown word for the trashy, rude, drunk and disgusting backpackers staying in this place. They kept us up until 4 am and they only stopped because I have to call the police. ME. Because these kids wouldn't listen to the managers. Good job with authority guys. They obviously hear normal people complain every day, they just don't care because we're there just for the night. The backpackers are there for the whole season. To wrap it up, we can't say much about the staff, they were nice and polite but did not do a thing to help us. Thanks to Matt, that heard us the next morning and got us our money back

    • Google Review (3/5)

    Was planning on staying here long term for farm work, couldn’t even hack a week. 3 stars given are for the staff and the cleaners who are lovely.

    I have never witnessed less considerate guests in my life, and I have stayed in a lot of hostels. My boyfriend and I had a PRIVATE room and were still kept up until at least 2am every night by people shouting and screaming outside the room. Falling into our window, sitting on our chairs. And I don’t just mean loud talking I mean genuinely screaming. I felt like I was at a university freshers night. I hadn’t found work yet but felt the upmost sympathy for those getting up for work at 5am each day. I had to get out of bed one night at 4am and ask some people to please chat somewhere else rather than at our window! I love a party but I’m never rude to other guests of wherever I am staying.

    On top of all this it advertises ‘free wifi’ which it is, but it’s only 750mb that you get at a time, and when it’s run out you have to walk to and from the reception asking for another 750mb. You need a different code for each device you have and once staff member refused to give me more than one (when I have a phone and a laptop).

    Good location, good food ya the restaurant but hostel is Overpriced for what it is. Wouldn’t stay here longer than a night or so.

    I stayed there from Oct.2014 till Jan.2015 and I can without any hesitation, describe it as the best three months of my life. Best atmosphere ever, only fun people, the best weekly barbecue and the nicest hostel manager ever. 

    I know at least 3 people who lost their virginity during the 3 months and one of them even on the beach right next to the hostel. If you're doing the classic Melbourne to Cairns east coast route, i highly recommend you to stay for a longer time period in the Hoey Moey. You'll have a clean room, good people, a beautiful beach right next to it and nice staff around you. 

    Thanks Frank and Vanessa and the whole Hoey Backpacker Crew from that time. You really made it the best time I've ever had !!

    +It was very clean. The staff was amazing! Very helpful and friendly. There are many things provided to do on a rainy day. In total a very Great Place to stay.

    • Google Review (5/5)

    This place is extremely clean . Really nicely done kitchen, rooms are very clean too. The people there were amazing.

    Most of them are working, so it's not much of a party life (Which was good for me)

    Bathrooms are really clean as well.

    The beach is extremely close.

    More of a Surfing vibe, which is also great. They give out surf boards and body boards. Service is really good too.

    Nice hostel. Not too expensive... unfortunately there were cockroaches in the kitchen when we were there. But apart from that they really try to run a nice hostel. Big TV in the living room with Netflix. A pool to cool down, different activities every day and you can rent surf boards. Enjoyed our stay there!

    -The only way I knew to get to the hostel from the airport was by taxi. These didn’t come too often. A shuttle bus option would have been nice. There’s a bit of a walk to get to the central area of the town..

    it was this or my car, and i would have preferred my car in hindsight. only plus was comfy beds and nice bathroom. my PRIVATE room was overpriced with a stinging fan, leaking PIPE, BROKEN LOCK and little cracks and stains on the floor/carpet. the staff were rude and seemed to want to get rid of their patrons and just get on with their day. didn’t notify me about anything - had to find out about the parking and wifi through other people. limited parking. whole place smells like cigarettes. wish i spent my money elsewhere. $69 ill never get back.

    • Google Review (1/5)

    This hostel is absolutely disgusting. So run down, so unclean and the kitchen is smelly and unhygienic. The fridge clearly hasn’t been emptied in months. Broken furniture, rooms need a massive amount of TLC. Sheets smelt damp and I woke up with a rash on my face. Only plus is there’s a good few pubs and clubs around and beaches are not too far away - by car. DO NOT STAY HERE! You will regret it!

    Friendly staff. Owner is a gem. If you call in advance they will help backpackers get an hourly job and help with transport. Hostel isn't the cleanest or the newest but it's homely. If you're here for a while other backpackers are welcoming and friendly. Nice location short walk to town. My bunk bed was old but comfy.

    I was sceptical of this place at first. Ive been to a working hostel before and have felt like a slave. This is one of those complete opposite of those times.

    • Hostelworld Review (9.4/10)

    I liked the Mildura Backpackers Hostel Conviently located to facilities and tourist attractions. Other fellow backpackers quite friendly.Heaters in all rooms and common lounge areas made it nice and warm. The Proprietor John picked me up from Mildura Station at my arrival time off the coach at 11: 30 pm .Awesome!!

    By the comments I can say Toni (Mohammed) hasn't changed a bit. I did stay here about 2 years ago. In one of his other houses where he stores backpackers. 80 90% didn't get a job from his as promised. And the ones that did get a job was mostly cash in hand, didn't count towards rural work (88 days),etc ...

    And even in these conditions he thought it was reasonable to raise the rent from $150 (which is ridiculous already) to $160, .

    Answer to your comment below: I already had a job, just needed a place to stay which as written above wasn't worth its price. And just Sharing the experience of my back then housemates.

    Response from the owner

    u must be one of the 5% that are not happy

    Tony does not play by the rules and he can’t blame Larry ... Tony has overcrowded rooms for greed and unclean kitchen, rats come around in the front room & cockroaches in the kitchen! He has no care for you stuff or safety and had breached the law of privacy one of many .. he feels like he can let him self in to all the rooms who knows if he has taken out anything. He does ask 24hour prior to entering I bought this up with him and he then tried to threatened me to say I was going the next day. At one point there was 20 people in one house and Tony was carrying out building with out permission at the same time, an inspection was carried out and they found out to many people were in the house so he pulled 10 bed out the house !!!! People how travelled to Melbourne for the weekend ended up with no were to go ! I’m Warning you not to go... the cars he offers to got to work with are unsafe and Tony carries out he’s own repairs.... he has refused to pay my deposit back .. This is the first step Tony just pay me the deposit

    Response from the owner

    u know that is not true and u were kicked out for sneaking ur un paying friend in

    I stayed with Tony and i had a great time. If you’re good to him he’ll be good to you. He helped me out in lots of ways and I actually learnt some things. If you’re willing and committed he will get you some good work.

    Did my farm days in three months, and everyday was like staying in family! Big kitchen where you can cook and than have meal with friends all together! Pool to refresh you after work, close to supermarkets! Rooms are all different, I was in a 4 bed one and had the best time with my roomies! Eva and Vince are always there to help you finding cash in hand jobs and good paid farm jobs

    Highly recommended, will come back next year as well!

    Backpackers there are amazing however bed bugs issue it still there. I'm was previously in shared 3 alone, although it was sort of good for privacy as the cabins are full, you won't be totally alone at night, if you get what i mean..so don't forget to check your beds everyday.

    P.S, hostel isn't always the cheapest, walk and ask around, it's a small town. Good luck

    • Google Review (5/5)

    Really lovely place! I stayed 5 weeks and met super cool people and had a lot of fun. The management is really nice to you and always try to find you work. Go get a cabin, the privacy and own bathroom is totally worth it. Besides Hillston is a small town with two pubs, so you can save money. Though with the right group of people you can still have epic partys! Can definitely recommend this place and hope to come back in June 2019!

    Really good working hostel with a great manager. Try to get a cabine asap, the shareds are not really good for staying longer. You must also have a car cause trevor, the manager does not offer a lift or a hostel car. Had a good time there while working on an almond farm! Thanks Trevor!

    Well I lived there for 8 months, best time of my life. Towards the end of my stay i looked after the backpackers and sent the most keen to the best jobs, Michael is a life long friend(the owner) also his wife (Debbie, an American former backpacker) and brother Pepe.Best experience of my life here and i'm gone 10yrs, if your willing to put in a days work this place is as much fun as you can have, if you lazy as i presume the poster above is go home. Love this place will be back ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you're planning on doing fruitpicking. Stay away, take any other location that isn't fruitshack. Let's start with the conditions: You're given a small, unhygienic, unclean rooms, with unclean and urine smelling beds. You'll want to use your pillows to cover the spots as you'll be given no cover or one that doesn't fit over the bed. Oh and don't let me forget you have to pay for air-conditioning.

    And now the discounted accomodation, seems great but no. It's a lie. You only get a discount when you fruitpick oranges that's what you signed up for no? Well no discount for you, Micheal makes you do other jobs, so you'll have to spend time focusing on working off tonights stay rather than getting pay.

    The worst thing, is no regard for happiness or current state. The only thing that seems to matter at the end of the day is the owner. Keep Micheal happy is littered across the site, seemingly the only thing that matters. Not you. You're simply seen as a machine.

    A great YHA and good for single travellers. Good location, modern but tired, large kitchen, lounge area, open fire, wifi, and great local information desk. Well maintained. Close to shops. The small hotels in the area offer better value if more than 1 person

    Friendly staff! And a very chill atmosphere. But my favourite part about this place was how spacious and clean the bathrooms and shareds were. The showers had a lot of room in them and a decent bench to put your stuff. The shareds were excellent!! Lots of room for luggage and to pack and unpack your stuff. Definitely recommend!

    The Flying Fox is a must to stay Backpacker in Katoomba. Once you stay there you would never want to live. The beds are super comfortable and the place is super clean.

    We loved spending every night in the living room where you get to chat and meet beautiful people. Breakfast is included in the price which is a bonus. We just want to say Thank you Ross for a fantastic welcoming we enjoy every second of our stay and we also plan to come back every year!

    Our favourite place to stay in Australia! From the incredible staff to the beautiful and cozy atmosphere. No14 Lovel St is the perfect place to rest after a day of hiking or to just sit back and relax while enjoying the beauty of the Blue Mountains! We will be returning!!!

    • Hostelworld Review (10/10)

    An absolutely brilliant place - cosy and homey. Perfect for those who wants a quiet retreat.

    • Hostelworld Review (10/10)

    One of my favourite stays in Australia. Stayed in a private room. Wonderful fresh sheets, great facilities and a hear warming atmosphere.

    • Hostelworld Review (10/10)

    One of the best hostels I ever stayed in, as for the facilities, there was everything I would expect to need after a day of hiking. Kim, the manager, was extremely helpful and suggested tracks I could do given the amount of time I had and explained all details I needed to know. I appreciate many small details I could find in the hostel that show you the passion of the managers for the area they live in. Overall, it really felt like being at travelers' home compared to popular hostel chains..

    • Hostelworld Review (9.7/10)

    I loved my stay here! It was such a nice break from Sydney. If you reserve your own room it feels like a quaint cabin. I had a VERY hard time leaving my room. I just wanted to snuggle and read a book. I enjoyed the free coffee and cereal, although I wish they had more free breakfast items. The hostel is close to town/train station but a 45? minute walk to Echo Point/Three Sisters. It was rainy most of our stay but we still enjoyed it. I would stay again.

    We stayed here a couple of nights and they put on a reptile encounter show thing which was really cool, we got to hold some incredible critters and the staff were just so lovely and friendly. We also got to go sandboarding at the local area which was epic and we had a great pizza night here where we all just chilled and drank a few beers and ate pizza. This is a fantastic place in the more natural areas. I highly recommend staying here. When I find my pictures I will add them. Great place.

    Great place for it's value - fixed price too even when it was the weekend. About 4-5 minute walk to One Mile beach. So many things I loved about this place, great design, you felt more in the natural environment, the large communal share kitchen/lounge space, facilities were kept clean, Thursday evening reptile talks, and the space is shared with other native animals. I went solo camping, but spent the evenings meeting other people in the shared common space which was nice. They also provide free bikes to ride up to the local shops at Anna Bay. The owners were really sweet, easy going and responsive. If I'm ever passing the area again, I would definitely stop by here.

    • Google Review (5/5)

    A cosy yet spacious place with plenty of nooks and relaxation areas. The management are great, ensuring all areas are kept clean by hostel-goers and through regular cleaning by staff. Management also keep well on top of everything in general, with a friendly yet firm approach. I was looked after so well, with a real personal touch, and I deeply appreciate that, it made me feel like I was at home :)

    The bathrooms are amazing: newly renovated and great hot showers, very clean, and plenty of hooks in the shower cubicles.

    There is all day parking (which you can't get in the Newcastle city hostel), and the location is still close to shops / beaches / bars / plenty of other attractions.

    You can tell a lot of love and care goes in to this place. I would highly recommend staying here.

    • Booking.com Review (6.7/10)

    +The location was excellent. A bit noisy in the dorms and others in dorm not locking door properly putting us at risk! …

    -The toilet was smelling as not cleaned frequently enough. Danger for gastro.... need to have Glen 20 for hygiene provided. Toilet paper seem to be strewn about! The rug on beds need to be cleaned as not safe after others have slept in the bed..

    • Booking.com Review (10/10)

    +Location on the beach, staff were friendly, place was how we expected..

    -Noth8ng.

    • Google Review (5/5)

    As a solo traveler I must recommend this place.

    Walking distance to the beaches, clean and tidy hostel, friendly staff (management and volunteers), free parking from 5 pm to 9 am (after you need to move your car a few blocks from the hostel to avoid parking tickets, the only thing I didn’t like from Newcastle, the PARKING).

    If you’re a solo traveler I recommend you this hostel, they host games, fun events and dinners where you can easily introduce yourself to fellow backpackers and friendly long term locals (not weirdos as other hostels in Sydney and Melbourne) they can give you the best tips to explore Oz

    Newcastle is the most underrated city in Australia, amazing landscapes, sports and fitness friendly, nightlife, if you love the sea, definitely is a must visit.

    I did there my farmwork 3 years ago..... And realised quickly... That I have to leave and escape!!!!

    • Google Review (3/5)

    It's a working hostel. Drink alcohol isn't allowed. The rooms are good, you share with 5 people more and the cleaner pass once a week. Spacious kitchen, you have to check what time isn't busy.

    • Google Review (1/5)

    Terrible terrible!! The hostel is not worth the money. You pay $205 for rent and transport and you even pay for the transport when you don’t work. The cabins are not insulated and you have to pay to heat the room with a pants heater that only works for 5 hours at a time. It feels like a summer camp with kitchen curfews at 9pm, no WiFi and if you get in the managers’ bad books, you will get kicked out.

    We were told work on the weekend was optional, so when we didn’t get up one Sunday the manager came in shouting and scolding us as though we were children and not adults. We were also told we couldn’t use our own transport as the farm didn’t allow it and that was false.

    My friend who had previously worked in the hostel came to pick us up and was sat in the kitchen as he has a broken ankle. He was asked to immediately leave and was even escorted out of the building. All personable communication and chat is fake. They have very little respect for the workers and you’re treated as just a means to money.

    I’ve made lots of friends and that is the only positive thing that came out of staying with Backpackers Queensland.

    • Google Review (1/5)

    If you enjoy paying 200 dollars a week for a bed in a 6 person dorm.. with no wifi... then look no further!!!!

    Michelle is one of the rudest people I have ever met. And if you are lucky enough to do your farm work in Stanthorpe make sure you don’t end up in this dump!!!!!

    Much better hostels for a cheaper price are easily available in Stanthorpe!!

    Also they enjoy giving the guests “Fines” which is basically just blackmail.

    The operation that they run here is nothing short of criminality

    • Google Review (1/5)

    DO NOT GO TO THIS HOSTEL.

    Rent is 205$ a week, you stay in a 6 bed dorms in which you have to pay to have 6hours aircon. You don’t have Wi-fi unless you pay for it. The kitchen closes at 9pm and there’s no quiet room.

    I got to work at snowman’s farm to pick apples, on a piece rate, and I only made 400$ in a week working 9 hours a day under a queensland sun picking the smallest apples you could find.

    The owners of the backpack seem lovely when you get here and when you pay your rent but other than that, they’re the most despicable you could find only here to rip you off. Be careful!

    Really cool place to be when doing your farm work!

    Big house to share and also a little cottage.

    Places to chill & watch Netflix, good outside area that’s sheltered plus a huge garden for whatever you wanna do.. not to mention the huge communal kitchen/lounge/weekend party area.

    Again a great place to make your farm work family.

    I was here for around 6months to complete my 88days and then some more. Great hostel. Ben and Penny really care about their guests. Couldn't have done it without them.

    Fantastic vibe at the hostel too, everyone is super friendly and welcoming, like a massive family (about 60-70 people when full). Can't think of a better place to do your days or even just for a couple of months to save some money. My home from home!

    • Google Review (5/5)

    It's such a lovely place!

    I can highly recommend it to everyone who wants to complete their farm work while having lots of fun!

    The owners are great, awesome people living here, big kitchen, rooms are nice, the rent is cheap and the jobs are good paid. I was here while Christmas time and it felt like home because of the atmosphere. They really want you to have a good time and that you are enjoying yourself.

    -There was just an overall weird vibe in this place. Me and my friend didn’t feel particularly safe, especially as there was a door in our room that led to another room that was very very flimsily locked, anyone could have broken in! …

    • Booking.com Review (9.2/10)

    +The staff are warm and welcoming, very friendly and very helpful.

    • Google Review (2/5)

    So we planned to stay for two nights but left after the first. Bunk beds are super old and squeaky. You can feel the steel spring of the mattress and the window was headed to the entrance of the hostel where everybody smoked. Curfew was at 9:30 and we weren’t allowed to end our monopoly game in the “garden” and we were super quiet. This was ridiculous on a Friday. The common room looked like a messy student dorm and the bathrooms hadn’t any window so it was quite smelly and on top dirty. The two showers were full of razors, shampoo and other personal stuff from the people who stayed there. We didn’t like it at all!

    At least the lady at the reception was very helpful and friendly.

    • Booking.com Review (9.2/10)

    +Friendly and helpful staff, super clean with areas being cleaned a few times during the day, nice area outside to chill out and good location walking distance to the beach..

    That’s all the ventilation we had in a four bed room in the middle of the hot and humidity summer in QLD. They very strict about the rules but the guest service isn’t good at all. Rooms, toilets and common areas were so dirty. You can not be out your rooms after 9 pm! I have been travelling for the last 5 years around the world, and this is worse hostel ever, do not go!

    Excellent hostel. It's actually different from other hostels you can stay and it exceeded my expectations. First of all they have a shuttle (always on time!) That picks you up from the Greyhound bus stop and drops you off. Also it runs every hour so if you don't wanna walk to the town or to the beach (15/20 minutes walking) you can jump on the shuttle. The hostel is genuinely neat. I stayed in a mixed dorm and the room was very very clean with air-conditioning. There are two toilets and two showers very clean and modern and they don't even look like hostel bathrooms, i thought i was in a hotel! Kitche is very big and the breakfast is included and it's good . Staff is helpful and polite. They also have a very nice pool.

    • Booking.com Review (10/10)

    A fine place to stay with a lot of facilities like laundry, kitchen, bar and restaurant. But the room had wood bars over the door, so you couldn't really have the light on without any mosquitos entering the room. The supermarket was also place 1,2 km away which was pretty annoying. Otherwise a lovely place to stay

    • Google Review (5/5)

    Best hostel ever! Perfect location, very quiet and clean. 5 minutes away by walk from the beach and the Noosa NP and 15 minutes away from the supermarket.

    • Booking.com Review (9.2/10)

    +It’s such a lovely location and it fits into Noosa Heads perfectly. It’s idyllic and romantic, and yet close to the Hastings street which is basically a few steps away as is the beach. The national park is around the corner and also all the healthy foods. Will definitely come back next year!.

    • Booking.com Review (9.6/10)

    My stay in Paradise!

    I stayed in Dolphins for 3 weeks, I can only say that the facilities are in very good condition and each one of the people who work there is friendlier than the previous one, always available to help you: Anna, Emma, Estelle, Andi, Curtis, Daniel...

    The location is perfect, just in front of the wonderful Sunshine Beach, perfect place to surf or do one of the different routes! the atmosphere is incredible, we were like a big family and met incredible people who I can call friends.

    At the hostel you can watch movies, do a workout, lie in a hammock and read a book, practice yoga, rent a surfboard or even play ping-pong!

    If you are looking for a small home in paradise you should definitely stay here! I hope to return very soon.

    Best hostel in QLD. Located 2 min walk from beautiful sunshine beach. Very friendly and kind staff who helped me every time. The place itself is very clean and backpackers-friendly with chill- beach kind of vibes. I highly recommend to go there and have the best time .

    • Booking.com Review (10/10)

    +It was the best hostel I stayed in during my stay in aus . The owners and staff couldn't do enough for you and the location was great only a 2/3 minute walk to the beach ... Highly recommended 🙂.

    Great place to stay.

    All the hostel including the commun areas, kitchens, bathroom and rooms where very clean.

    Has a great location; close to the beach, national park, shops.

    They offer great facilities like a shuttle bus to the main beach or main city, surf classes, etc.

    But the best part is Curtis who makes people experience outstanding with his great energy floating around ! Thank you.

    This hostel was very cozy. Designed in a way to mingle with all guests there. There was entertainment (Board games, table tennis, free boards). Their bathroom is a single one with a shower in it for two rooms, so more private than lockers which is great. They are very reasonable with their guests too. Enjoyed my stay there.

    Beautiful place, everything well organized and clean. Loved the dogs and the surroundings.

    Good place to be for doing your farm work!

    • Google Review (5/5)

    Excellent place to do the farm work! I was working during one and a half month, I met wonderful people and enjoyed a lot the time there. It is a beautiful hostel equipments with everything, a comfortable kitchen, game room, cinema, a gym and a place for drink and listen music. Rhys and Vanessa are very nice people and always worried about the farm work. On Christmas they prepared a barbiecue for everyone and we spended the day in the beach with their family and Jeannie (a beautiful and funny woman). I definitely recommend this place for farm work!

    • Google Review (5/5)

    We had heard horror stories about farm work in Australia, but completing our days the Eco-Lodge was a wonderful experience. Rhys and Vanessa have traveled themselves and aren't out to rip off backpackers - while in high season everyone at the hostel were working hourly wage jobs, and in the low season Rhys will warn you if he only has lower paid piece rate jobs available.

    Not only that, the Lodge is a beautiful hostel in itself; it's been equipped with great additions like a cinema room, a games room, a gym etc, and while we were there Rhys was working hard on reinvesting money into building a new outside area with beer fridges!

    The Eco-Lodge is a passion project, and is a great place to be. Extra shout to Jeannie too - if you are lucky enough to live here you will meet a true inspiration to all of us!!

    • Google Review (5/5)

    This hostel is one of the better ones to complete your 88 days. The owner (Rhys) makes sure you get a decent job and the facilities around the hostel are great too. The easygoing vibe in combination with the surrounding nature makes it a peaceful place. Definitely worth to recommend this hostel!

    Great place. The staff is very friendly and know to listen about your needs. However, you can not know if you will have a full time job during your stay. It does not depend of the staff but of the farms, their availability and the weather. Some people might be lucky, some not. But the staff tries to give you the best as they can. The infrastructures, as toilets, or the sport place are a bit old, don't be too demanding.

    About me, I staid in farmgate for seven weeks and worked during five of them, that was not too bad. It is easy to save money, considering that you have no place to spend it in Childers, except the pub 😅 the rent is not too expensive, I advice you to sleep by your own, as in a van ($170/w)

    Anyway, the place is very friendly, you can meet very nice people :)

    • Google Review (3/5)

    I've been at Farmgate for 5 months, definitely not the place to make money, Most of the time I always worked piece rating, only being able to pay rent and food, while some people were always being helped with hourly paid jobs.

    I never complained, always paid on time, always been nice and patience, but the best jobs have always been given to others and not to me :)

    The staff works hard to always find you a new job, (I have to be honest).

    The cabins and the resort in general are ok. Recommended if you are in a hurry to complete the 88 days, not recommended if you want to make money.  This is my personal experience. I was able to complete my 88 days, but I went away completely broke.

    P. S.

    Luis has always been kind and has always tried to help me.

    • Google Review (5/5)

    I stayed at farmgate for 3 months and I had a great time and I was able to save up a lot of money. I had my first job only 2 days after I arrived and had work throughout the whole time. The place itself is really nice with the pool, the quiet town nearly and fun people in the cabins around you. I definetly experienced that people had to wait for a jobs sometimes or that they got bad jobs (happens in every working hostel), but I personally never had any trouble with that throughout the whole season. For me it was the perfect place to do my farmwork.

    • Google Review (2/5)

    I've been in this working hostel for about a month and a half. After 10 days of collecting mandarins with the pay that changed every day, I was moved to packaging where I was hourly paid but after a while I'm been fired for no reason and I lost half of my bond. A "private guard" of the campsite made it so that after 9.30 PM no one made any kind of noise and sometimes a curfew was applied to the common kitchen that was closed. The water from the showers in the upper part of the campsite was always cold, so 50% of the people who lived in the campsite could not take a hot shower after a day's work.

    • Google Review (5/5) (Dingo Base)

    Dingo Base was my very first hostel experience, and I’m glad it was.

    I was there for two months, and I couldn’t have had a better time.

    I know from other people I met in Bundy, and two nights I spent at another hostel, that Dingo’s is by far the best in town.

    Any mess or untidiness is down to the guests, not the hostel. It’s always being cleaned; Amanda does a phenomenal job.

    The staff make you feel welcome and do their best to get you work. A lot of ‘getting work’ is weather dependant, so it’s not the hostels fault when you can’t work.

    I met friends for life at Dingo Base, created memories and had the time of my life.

    David, Wanda, Courtney, Sam, Storm, Beau, Taylor and everyone else that works at Dingo go above and beyond to help you out and make you feel like family.

    There’s a great bar and swimming pool which is a huge bonus, and a nice way to relax after a long day on the farm!

    It gets busy at a weekend and you can have a chilled night or a Raging Party.

    I was genuinely gutted when I had to leave, so much so that I went back for two nights during some travelling of the East Coast.

    The shopping centre is a 10 minute walk from the front door, there’s plenty of gyms nearby and the pub ‘The Spotted Dog’ which is literally round the corner do great food and has a good atmosphere.

    There’s washing facilities in the back and a basic gym, which has enough to get a good workout in.

    Apart from travelling, this was the best part of my Australian experience.

    Cracking place, good price for drinks and the pool is free to use. Great atmosphere. I just wish they'd fix the racing games

    • Google Review (1/5) (Dingo One)

    When you try call you NEVER get an answer , I emailed and called for weeks before arriving and never once got an answer back just a generated email. As I was under pressure to get farm work I paid two deposits of $100 to then be emailed afew days later ( as we were traveling up to DingoBlue) to say that they were full and no beds/work for us for afew weeks.

    Honestly it’s not worth the stress

    • Google Review (1/5) (Dingo One)

    We weren't happy at all. But up to you to make your own judgement. Key access was taken away even though rent was paid. What management makes you jump a fence to get into your room.

    The staff here are so friendly! They treat everyone with respect and do their best to keep the hostel clean! There is always a farm for you to work at, personally I have managed to save alot of money here.

    There is so much to do outside of the hostel too, it's in the middle of bundaberg centre so there are pubs, restaurants, a mall, a swimming pool, an entertainment centre, every other shop you need. There's always something to do, I've been here for over 6 months doing my farm work and haven't even thought about going anywhere else.

    Hello Melako Laksa. Although we couldn't find your name on our record, we apologize for your bad experience of our hostel.

We wish you the best luck for your adventure.

    I have been living at many bad hostels around the world but this is honestly the worst hostel I've lived in. Everything is dirty, its no toilet paper or soap in the bathrooms. The bedrooms have no windows, the aircon just working 6 hours /day so the rooms are like saunas and smells really bad.

    When it comes to the work part its honestly slavery, we earned 10 dollar/day because it was nothing to pick. And the salary was over 1 month late and I called the staff over 10 times before they paid my salary.

    So as an conclusion, even if you are a broke backpacker like me, don't go there, prison would even be better!!

    • Google Review (2/5)

    The place is not very clean and I think they can give definitely more fore the money they earn. But you can find there fast work. A big problem is that you can kicked out because of small mistakes like a can of beer in you bag. And you are fired from your job when you was one time to late. The comfort ist not enough for the price per week and much to high when you know that the hostel earn money with every hour you work there!

    • Google Review (1/5)

    I’ve been travelling and living on hostels for the past 4 months, and this is the worst place I’ve been to.

    Extremely dirty, disgusting claustrophobic rooms/prison cells (actually prison probably has higher standards). You don’t get a pillow or bedsheets. The rooms has no windows and no ventilation, the only source of fresh air was the aircon, that runs between 6pm-00.

    And it doesn’t end there, I also did some farm work, the pay was ridiculously low and I waited a month over my payday to get my salary and deposit back. I called the unprofessional staff over 10 times during that period but they “couldn’t” help me and I just had to wait.

    As a summary:

    Don’t go to this place, there’s plenty of other options, I’ve nothing positive to say about it.

    The hostel is always willing to help out and be lenient towards your situation. Be respectful towards the staff and you will have no issues with them.

    Me and my boyfriend done our 88 days here. It’s not the best place but is ok, the other backpackers are really friendly and you can make friends for sure.

    Try to not go in the summer because there are to many bed bugs.

    Also the manager, Michael, is really rude and he is not gonna help you if you need anything, he just don’t care, but there is another guy who works in the hostel as well, Thimo, he is really nice and he always going to try to help if he can.

    If you go here order in bulk because once you're served that's it, shutters down and you have to wait well over an hour just for another drink unless u walk in the kitchen area and shout for someone to serve you, even then, expect to wait a lengthy time. Miserable attitude from some staff but I can't bring down the others who made it an ok place to hang out. I'd put it down to poor management from what I could see.

    The team at East Bundy are such a caring group of people. There are rules - yes, but only to make sure everyone are comfortable and work-ready in the morning. I've recommended this place to others seeking farm work, and will continue to do so

    • Google Review (5/5)

    Completed all my farming days with no problems. Christine, Jo, Jonna and Brian were fantastic hosts and sorted everything. All the staff are wonderful, friendly and super helpful. The hostel was very clean and affordable and cars are provided for work. Great experience and had a fantastic time! Thanks EBB x

    Beware of this hostel. The owner Christine is an absolute nightmare, she clearly has bipolar disorder. I was then put on a cucumber farm, which other than one of the bosses literally bullying me was great but then after 2 weeks was told I’d be cut town to 3 days a week because despite me being a very fast worker they had hired new locals and prioritised then over Backpackers (thats the exact words they used), literally had my name crossed off the list and replaced by the boss who’d bullied me. I had seen the owner of the hostel in the past kick people out and give them 20 minutes to leave, get mad at people for asking for more hours after only getting 19 a week and fire people from their farms because they told her a week in advance they wanted to leave before their 3 months. She’s literally kicked people out for being too loud after 10. Anyway she saw me packing up and I told her the situation and that I was leaving the night with friends and had just found out 20 minutes earlier that I was leaving and she proceeded to yell at me and tell me I had 30 minutes to get out, which I didn’t get my deposit or the rent I’d paid back. The people staying there hate her, the people working there hate her, I mean this place is hell on earth. They may say they have work but they won’t tell you that half the people get fired from the main farm they put people on within their first day which leave 12 people currently on standby list waiting for work, and that’s even after 10 people have left because they have no work. Don’t come to Bundy especially not this Backpackers, this was the worst month in all my travels. I know like the others people who have posted negative reviews Christine will try to discredit me, don’t listen to her, I actually stayed there during the month of January, locker 71 room 9. This place is hell.

    I had the funniest time at East Bundy Backpacker! Lived with over 100 people but the hostel makes it feel like it's less people because of all the good common areas.

    The manager and the staff are serious and it's a good hostel to stay at if you want to make sure that you will complete your farm days.

    Best location in bundy! Clubs pubs and McDonald’s all outside your door! Free Wifi was great, Melissa was always there to help with anything we needed. Rent is cheap and I even got a

    Private room for my last few weeks for the same price!

    No work here, move on as quickly as possible.

    Do not go here for work or stay over! The hostel is bed bug ridden, with very little being done about it. The kitchen is disgusting - frustrating that people can't clean up after themselves but there is no actual cleaner there to clean it either. There is no work, we were promised 13 weeks work, there never was 13 weeks work just 2 weeks but they kept insisting there would be more work in order to keep us there paying the $180 a week. Alot of the backpackers there had been there for well over 6 months getting their visa days that should've been done in 13 weeks because they were getting work 1 or 2 days a week and then in debt for paying for accommodation. We had two convicts who had just been released from prison staying there, one was a diagnosed schizophrenic who hid the knives in his room! The only thing I have to thank the Grand for is the 9 days towards my 88 days and the few cracking people I met there! If you're looking for visa days go direct to farm if you can and avoid working hostels.

    • Google Review (5/5)

    We lived at the hostel for 3 months to do farm work. Melissa and Nicole are fantastic managers! The hostel is really social and we were encouraged to make the it feel like our home. A great location being close to amenities, bars and clubs. Bundaberg is a good place for consistent work, you may need to wait a little longer to get on an hourly paid job, but you get reduced rent when not working. Remember, it's the staff and other guests that make the experience!

    • Google Review (1/5)

    This is the worst/dirtiest/ lying hostel I've ever been too. My girlfriend and I were told there is tons of work and we needed to get there as soon as possible. We paid for a week and all other fees they made us pay. No work all week. They told us there was no work and they wouldn't give us an money back. We met people that have been there waiting for work for multiple weeks with no money left. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!!!! They will screw you over.

    No working hostel is up to the same standards as the ones you have on holiday. North bundy has the most communal layout compared to other hostels which includes everyone and makes it really easy to meet the other backpackers. Hourly jobs can be scarce but try and sort your own and they will provide transport to and fro no problem 🤙

    There’s a ‘gym’, four kettles and an empty pool, it’s essentially the ritz.

    I really enjoyed my time here. The best thing about North Bundy Backpackers is the environment and people you get in touch with here. I was recommended by my friend and it was worth it. Firstly i was hesitant bec of some of the bad reviews i saw here but most of them does not look to be legitimate now after i realized the reality by myself being here. Highly recommended!

    I was at this hostel for a year. Although the rent was high, But I had work every day so I could save money a lot. And last year it was too dirty, this year many cleaners so I am happy about that.

    The people from different countries lived, I was able to exchange cultures and made awesome friends in this hostel. I am very sad to leave now

    I'm glad I chose this hostel. Because I always got an hourly pay job, and I got a paycheck and a pay slip without delay. It was easy to get a second visa and the friends I met here were the best. I think the management has definitely improved over the year as well.

    Tomato Backpackers is a great opportunity to get the sign off for you 2nd working holiday visa. Its a great environment with great people and good work. ALL jobs are hourly paid which is rare in other hostels here in town. I recommend this hostel because of the jobs, the good managment and the great location.

    Less than a week ago they had bed bugs and took absolutely zero responsibility for it. They handling the situation rather poorly and even brought our German friends' race into the matter. They chauffeured us around a bit though which was cool. Maybe out of guilt lol

    Although I already left this place weeks ago, I think of it fondly when I compare it to other backpacker accommodations. I simply loved all of the places you could sit by yourself to read or relax and the host James was ever helpful and kind. The location, next to a big quiet beach, is a plus. If you're looking for a cosy experience that reminds you of home, look no further.

    • Google Review (5/5)

    I stayed at this hostel for nearly 8 months. I was told when i came in that work was not easy to find at the moment as the area had just been through a cyclone. I was told that i would need to wait but i would get work eventually. I was also given a good tip - if you want work you need to be able to get up in the morning and be sober and drug free. I took this comment lightheartedly at first but it paid off for me as i was ready for whatever work came my way. I got work within the first week (casual only at first) and eventually found great work on other farms. I kept my job when other backpackers lost theirs because they came to work with hangovers or bad attitude. I had no issues with Manager John as i wasn't keeping other backpackers or the nearby house awake at night. The hostel was always cleaned daily.

    Some backpackers got kicked out of this hostel and it wouldn't matter where they stayed they would be kicked out as they had no respect for the work they were given of the hostel .

    I left Bowen and managed to save nearly $15K, most money i've saved.

    I'll come back when i do my second visa. Regards Jack

    You need to stop at this place to meet one of the most interesting people of the universe and also visit this luxurious hostel. All is done to make you feel well and comfortable, starting from all the second-hand sofas. John is the most smiling person ever and he will get you a job in no time as you will be able to witness how he calls farmers constantly. Indeed the waiting list is just a quick formality, especially if you are a girl there, it is literally raining jobs! Be ready to be busy very quickly in this hostel. He does not drink alcohol so if you need to thank him a tomato juice will do instead! Also, he is vegan so no meat please he does not like bbq! He speaks several languages and articulate very well too for backpackers to understand everything quickly. A good thing is John's love for couples, if you kiss in front of him, this will fill his eyes with stars and heart with flowers. About the place itself, what a wonder, it is brand new hostel with loads of features such as dorms with doors and no doors, ping pong table with flat ball, no toilet smells in the rooms (never), maximum cleanliness of the corridors, and a beautiful kitchen box in which no one can steal your belongings. You will also be entitled to drive the hostel's Ferrari to go to work, well maintained and always ready to go. If you are tired of places that look like discharges, that's the place to be as there is no useless car staying in the middle of the courtyard and alley, plus the garden is just wonderful. Just stop there one day and enjoy an experience that you will never forget! No worries it is very easy to check in as John is a hard-worker and for this reason the reception is open most of the time.

    I really like this hostel. It's a bit far from the Greyhound bus stop but i think it's the only inconvenient. It's very close to the main street so you have many shops and cafes all around. Also very close to the supermarket. It's a very clean hostel with a big kitchen and a nice common area. Also the pool is great. Staff is very polite. Room was clean and spacious for everyone and the bathroom is inside.

    I can’t fault Aussie Tavern & Backpackers hostel.

    I have been here with my partner for 7 weeks and we couldn’t be more pleased with how Natalie & Amanda have welcomed us into their Aussie Nomads family.

    We have never done any sort of travelling like this before and we were very nervous to come to Bowen.

    7 weeks later it’s the best decision we have ever made. We have made so many..... too many friends for life 😅 which we never thought would happen. And we have both landed very good farm jobs for this season.

    We had this hostel recommended to us from many previous backpackers who have stayed here and throughly enjoyed their 3 months that they stayed on for a couple more weeks to get some extra money from their farm, and enjoy the red dog experiences a couple more times 😂.

    Highly recommend this hostel to travellers looking to do there 88 days.

    Natalie & Amanda are very accommodating and are always there to give you motherly advice when needed which is a massive help being so far away from home . 💕

    The hostel itself is pretty decent but they're not as consistent with offering work as they say. They told me i would get 2 weeks fulltime work but only got 4 days.

    Response from the owner

    FARM WORK IS CERTAINLY NOT FOR EVERYONE.LUCKILY WE 99% OF PEOPLE DO THE RIGHT THING AND 100'S OF PEOPLE PER YEAR GAIN THEIR VISA HAPPILY WITH US.

    • Google Review (1/5)

    Never go to this hostel. There is a chance you get a nice job, but also a chance you get to work at places where you earn 2 dollar an hour doing black labor.(not usable for second year visa)

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At one day we went to a farm and did the following:

    We had to climb in trees and such to shake mango's out of trees that where picked 5 times already. We made 30$ each on 7 hours (40degrees)

    So we decided to take everyone in the bus. ( around 8 people)

    We told the Owner( Marlene) about the situation, Black Labor, no ensurance, no money, climbing trees( dangarous)

    But she got really mad at us for leaving , she diddn't care about our wellbeing. So she decided to not give us a job anymore.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The worst thing was that they force you to take the job, if you dont like it and tell them its not fair work, they will kick you out of the hostel and take your deposit. Or just not give you any job anymore so you will have to leave.

    There are a lot of people that will leave the place with less money then they started with.

    The only nice thing about the hostel is that you will meet a lot nice backpackers.

    • Google Review (5/5)

    5 stars because I had a nice time here. I had nice jobs and I will complete my 88 days here. Mick and Marlene were always nice to me and the best part is that you have a second family here because here are so nice people with so many different nationalities!

    Response from the owner

    Hi Lukas,

    I can understand that you're unhappy with your stay at the hostel, but unfortunately you secured employment yourself while foregoing our employment process. This, in turn, took a position from a guest who had more experience and had been waiting longer for that spot. You were, in fact, told beforehand that this move would be in violation of your contract, so you had full knowledge of the consequences that followed. Naturally, this was strictly against the rules in your contract (as it is not fair to other guests), and so you were asked to leave the hostel.

    Regarding our "fake reviews" - I'm extremely disappointed that you're challenging the authenticity of reviews written by our guests. We regularly undertake activities with our guests, and often will ask if guests who had positive experiences can write reviews. None of our reviews are fake.

    Although we are sorry to see that your stay ended negatively, if you cannot abide by the rules in your employment contract and are going to take a job away from our operations and those guests waiting for a position (along with the other issues we and the community had with you during your time in Ayr), then I cannot sympathise with you.

    Regards,

    Brian

    I stayed in this Hostel many years ago when a couple named Sandra and Dennis were in charge. I was looked after very well and given good work on a local farm. The work lasted for 6 weeks and I managed to save enough money to travel all the way back to Sydney and have a great time along the way. I have no idea who is in charge now, or if the place is still as good as it was, but I will always be grateful for my time there.

    I spent a month in Delta Backpackers, arrived without a reservation but was still found work within 2 days. I can't recommend this place enough if you're working towards your 462 visa, a good hostel and the owners are some of the best Aussies I've met, helpful and good people. The hostel has all facilities that you could need and a big pool, also a lively social life without being a party hostel. Would recommend, thanks for the experience

    • Google Review (1/5)

    I spent a whole year in Australia and this for sure is one of the worst places I’ve been. Felt like I was in an orphanage. plus after I told the owner I was leaving (you need to let them know at least 4 days in advance to get your 200 dollar bond back) she stopped being friendly to me and of course lost my job mysteriously..

    unfortunate how people’s behaviour depends on the money you give them.

    • Google Review (1/5)

    The room they put me in was like a prison cell. No window. Just a fan and AC. I had to leave the AC on all night and it was freezing cold and it would get hot again without the AC. I couldn't get proper sleep staying there.

    Bugs everywhere. It's a miracle that there was no bed bugs. Showers and toilets were jail quality.

    I get why they have so many stupid rules. I reckon they had too many crazy stupid backpackers. I've seen better cheap hostels.

    At least they seem to have some jobs around. But seriously, you'd go crazy if you work while staying there.

    The management is bad. All the past reviews are from the previous owners so don’t come here based on those like I did!

    They tell you there is work here and then you have to wait around whilst other people who arrive after sometimes start full time work before you. It is harder to find work as a girl so they bring in couples to keep you paying rent.

    They send aggressive messages all the time and charge you extra fees unnecessarily. Don't waste your time, find another hostel with better management. Some people were here for six months doing their 88 days....

    Good spot, but really need a buggy to get around, or be prepared for walking through the sand trails to get to the river, then, kayak across to go to the beach, then, watch out for crocs

    • Google Review (5/5)

    Wreck? What wreck?! This is my best dive by far... Why?... the amount of marine life is off the chart. First Bull shark sighting, rays, eels, turtle, barracuda, snake and cod fish the size of me. There is not one place you look that there isn’t mass amounts of life in your view. The crew were friendly, casual and made the whole experience great. This needs to be on your must do dive list. I will be back for sure. EPIC, AMAZING & totally worth it.

    • Google Review (5/5)

    Friendly and competent drive instructors, only 45 minutes sailing to the wreck of SS Yongala, excellent. (But beware: visibility during the dive can be low). (I add 2 days later: although the season has not changed, the visibility improved greatly in this excellent dive site. The "head" dive instructor informed me: Now is Australian summer; the boat ride usually is pleasant but the visibility is not perfect. In the Australian winter, the visibility usually is much, much better but the boat ride can be rough.

    I recently stayed at Banana Barracks. Paula is the most helpful wonderful person you can be lucky enough to meet. She helped me find a job right away and was super understanding and caring about my situation. The place is very organized in helping you get your days done. It is also very clean, and full of energy. The people you meet will make you want to stay. I feel so grateful for my time spent there.

    I stayed here for four months in 2015 and I had one of the best times of my life! Met some amazing friends here, and I am still friends with some of them today. Anyone who is planning on doing their Farmwork should stay here! No better place to do it 👌

    I really enjoyed my stay at Banana Barracks. They really try their best to get you a job very quickly and the staff is very caring. The whole kitchen gets cleaned everyday. It’s a really social hostel, you‘ll meet so many nice people.

    Response from the owner

    Marc, thank you for your review.

    I really loved my time here at the Banana Barracks! Paula and her team are absolute legends and run a great operation. I spent loads of time reading up about different hostels and am really glad that I chose here. I’ve read that other hostels tell you there’s work when there isn’t so you go there, lie about how long the waiting lists are so you end up sitting around for ages, confiscate your passport and then try and rip you off out of your deposit at the end for bogus reasons.

    Glad to say that nothing like this happened at all at the Barracks. The first time that I called up they said to hold off coming up for a bit as at the time there wasn’t enough work for the amount of people that were there. Happily when I called the second time there was space and I headed straight up. The hostel has a great communal space where everyone hangs out (much better than Hotel Tully up the road) and is generally full of pretty sound people. A few people got kicked out when I was there for being complete idiots which kept the peace nicely. The security guy Glen also deserves a mention as he’s really fair and keeps the peace really well whilst still letting you party pretty hard. The floors, kitchen & bathrooms are cleaned every day and on Monday the whole place is cleaned which keeps it nice and tidy.

    Being honest there’s a couple of things that you’d want changed. The pool doesn’t seem to get cleaned, a few of the mattresses are pretty old, the rooms could do with a paint and the small table top oven sucks and gets so hot it’s hard to use but apart from that the place is great! Tully is the wettest place in Australia so I’d say it’s best not to leave it until you only have 3 months left to do 3 months farm work as there’s a good chance you might have some days work rained off. I’d recommend the Barracks to anyone and actually miss the place now I’ve got back to Melbourne!

    It's a nice little hostel to stay at, with basic bed rooms that can get a bit cold in the night. The kitchen is basic but has everything you would expect from a hostel. I stayed here for a couple of nights while I was touring the local spots and would be happy to do so again.

    The hostel is absolutely disgusting, the owner is a conman who will charge you 210 dollars a week even if you are working 1 and a half days a week and earning 270. You pay a deposit of 200 dollars which he keeps if you don't stay for 14 weeks. DO NOT GO HERE the chances are you will get between 1 and 3 days a week work. There are plenty of other hostels In innisfail.

    Horrible conditions where you might get payed for what you work. Do yourself a favor, and find a proper place to stay, only stay if you are truly desperate.the place feels more like a prison/mental asylum than a hostel. The people, and managers are nice though.

    If I could avoid given them a star I wouldn’t even get them one. The hostel is SO BAD! It looked like a prison. I do not understand that people actually can live there it was disgusting!

    DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE.

    the guy john who runs the whole set up is a straight up con man who loves to play puppet master.

    U will have to wait a long time for him to give u work and wen he does it's 1-2 days a week. He charges $200 a week to live. In what can only be described as a crack den. U never make enough money to cover rent and food so u end up paying to do the farm work.

    If u need farm work and your in a rush. Better off going to a farm that don't won't pay but gives u accommodation and food.

    Response from the owner

    What an embarrassment. Was given a private double room Told it would be a one week wait . Was given job humping because said he would smash it . After first day asked to be moved because it was too hard . Quit second morning had to be picked up while he left the other men to cover for him and was escorted off the farm by the farmer because of his attitude. Just embarrassed on his behalf by his performance and now by his cowardice once he has left . The farm is still working today without him which is a win for everyone involved .

    The house is wrecked send in the bulldozer! pests all over the place it’s a mission just to prep food. $200 rent very expensive considering the area & poor accommodation!!! WiFi costs $40 each per month. 80% of people don’t get enough hours, farm days take months & months to get & save little. Mattresses are wafer thin so after grafting on the farm your back gets more punishment through the night. Cooking equipment is trashed. OWED FOR 3 HOURS WORK. Dropped off 1 hour early to farms. ADVISE.. SPEND SOME DOLLAR ON THE PROPERTY, BUSINESS ISN'T ALL ABOUT TAKE TAKE TAKE. On the plus side make good friends.!!

    We were in the neighbourhood and we stopped to have a look at the hostel. We entered the place and tried to talk to someone.

    Then the Korean manager came and said we were trespassing the hostel and we couldn’t enter. He said come stand here outside. We were just shocked and said we just wanted to ask you if there is any jobs available. He said No and you can’t enter the hostel. (The frontdoors were open and it looked like a house that was transformed into a hostel with a reception.)

    We felt very unwelcome!!!!

    He clearly had no manners....

    • Google Review (1/5)

    BIG SCAM!

    the korean manager will tell you that you are going to work 6 days a week and make good money. The truth is that you are just working 2 days a week to pay the overpriced rent. Everybody in this "hostel" is just working 2-3 days a week (maximum). He is a very unhonestly person so do not trust him.

    I am really shocked and I didnt know that we could meet such dishonest people. run to knock on their doors and you will have only problems, We went with happy travels my boyfriend and I, we had a home of the most deplorable, the accommodations are very dirty, They also benefit the koreens so while they take your place on the farm, you pay yourself as idiots, likewise, they charge you $ 15 a day or you work, that is to say that basically, you pay $ 170 but in addition to the charges. a lot of backpackers are there for their farms, they know it and take advantage of it but the biggest advice I have to give you, to avoid the Korean boss, he sweats dishonesty. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE

    I felt very comfortable there and I'm looking forward to come back as soon as posible. Tricia is an incredible person and she is taking care of everyone all the time. I received my bond perfectly 😊.

    • Google Review (5/5)

    Tolga Lodge was woderful, my stay lasted just shy of four months (staying one extra week after finishing day 88). Tricia, the caretaker, is an amazing person, one of the most optimistic and encouraging of the people I’ve met.

    On the other side, very strict rules when it comes to alcohol

    Dryer wasn't able to dry all the clothes

    Kitchen facilities could be better, for example the hotplates sometimes don't get hot enough. I only get 100mb of free wlan a day. The best days of the grand hotel lay behind. Its a bit like run-down.

    Great bar down stairs. Good kitchen facilities and relaxation area. Location very central on the main street. Had a bad experience and was put in a dorm room with someone who seemed to be living and working there. They had their stuff everywhere and it felt weird. The room was also small and cramped. Went to go to bed on the first night and she had some guy in her bed. Had to wait to go to sleep. I would not stay there again. Didn't really feel welcome and staff seemed a bit unprofessional.

    • Booking.com Review (10/10)

    +Air conditioning was amazing and the comfort of the rooms was worth the value. Plus the parking around the back was really decent for a hostel. …

    -Access to the parking. I’m guessing not a lot of people park around the back anyways. Nearly dinged up the hire car trying to get passed the beer kegs..

    It's a very nice place the pool the atmosphere. But the only thing was disappointed me that when we book the room we didn't get the room that we expected. So we ending up in a two singles bed instead of 1 single and 1 double bed. So my husband ending up sleeping on an air mattress.🤔🙄

    • Booking.com Review (10/10)

    -On the Booking.com website it said that you will have a private bathroom, which is definitely not the case. No. So be aware!.

    We went to visit the Hotel for nostalgic reasons and what a lovely experience. The owners are very friendly and accommodating.

There was a good vibe in the place and it made for a very enjoyable evening. We would highly recommend. Rob & Mike

    I had been on the trail (which is a 1000km and I am down 90km) and needed a rest stop for some food and to replace my shoes. Beautiful but hard walking and looking for a place to stay. I was recommended a backpackers - and being of reasonable age (53) and a female I was not sure - also I needed a lift/pickup from a point on the trail 27km away from Denmark. I called up - the owner Mark (ex South African - they make them good out there) and sure as nuts he would pick me up as I was a guest of his. Perfecto! Ride and bed all in one shot. The Blue Wren is superb- almost biblically so, everything from 50m to the town centre, the amazing WIFI, the cleanliness and Marks hospitality - he even drove me to albany to find the right shoes! I stayed in the en-suite room (only one) and there are single rooms with shared, but separate male/female bathrooms. The best kitchen and table dining and a quaint lounge. If this is what a backpackers is about I won’t be staying at the Sofitel anymore 😂😂

    “I stayed in Manjimup Backpackers mid October 2019 as I was riding the 1000 km Munda Biddi trail; I had a bike and lots of gear with me. Abdul was very friendly and super accommodating especially considering I also had the bike + gear with me and had to check in late and leave quite early. He had tips for around Manjimup such as restaurants and places to visit. The signage in the hostel was most helpful for anyone that have not been to Manjimup or to the hostel previously. Great place and I would certainly recommend the hostel!”

    “Don't go. Just don't. Believe me, all the reviews speak the truth. The hostel is poorly managed, there's no cleaning whatsoever, once in a while maybe the toilets. Your duty is to clean the kitchen and your own room. In case you didn't understand, this place is DIRTY beyond belief. And for that you pay 160$ a week, no tea, no coffee, no WiFi, no nothing. No even heating in winter. You need to pay an extra 20 a week. Abdul will tell you all the sweet words you need to hear just to be sure he can keep you there. You can see he answers reviews like a 15 yrs old kid. WORST hostel I've ever been.”

    Abdul is a great owner!!”

    • Tripadvisor: (1/5)

    Monopolising third Reich of a place

    “The owner Abdul has a monopoly on the entire area if you fall into his 160 dollar a week trap he will mug you off,he controls all the workers in tye area on. All the farms with various contracts ,if you reply to an ad and take a job with him you must stay with him , and if you find other work and leave he will ring the farm and destroy the new job you got not to do with him and replace you with two people staying with him , in manjimup you can have a house with mates for 100 bucks a week walk in walk out , there are about 1000 cameras in this hostel watching every move you make , the place is overcrowded and if you want to make food you best do it before 4pm it leave it till midnight , ridiculous place , he imposes fines for pathetic things like letting a dish soak or smoking by tge woodburner ,never known such a terrible human being , preaches about helping backpackers ,when he only helps his wallet , do not stay here ,head to pemberton backpackers and the manager will sort you rightout. A proper legend of a man down there , do not stay at manjimup backpackers period.”

    Felt pretty uncomfortable with the owner abdul being quite hostile. Had to check out to catch a bus back to perth. the check out time was 10 but thought it would be ok to stay in the lounge of the hostel until the bus time, but told me that he didnt care and told me to get out of the hostel. Pretty shocked to experience this since ive never heard of a place that wont let you stay at a lounge for a brief while. also heard pretty bad stories about the owner like the other review says...

     Unless youre desperate for a job. I would’nt recommend this place.

    The owner is super nice, every Friday there’s a free bbq, and there’s a lot of farm jobs available. However, it can be harder to get one if you’re a girl. It’s also in a beautiful region! It’s a bit far from the nearby town (10min by car) but the owner organises shopping runs a few times a week so you won’t starve ;) great working hostel in general!

    Although it is in a farm environment, its equipment is perfect, fixed maintenance and renewal, fixed environment, and even a vending machine👍

    The hostel staff will listen to the needs and try their best to help. More secure jobs will also be arranged, and most of the cooperative farmers are very kind.

    • Facebook

    Would definitely recommend for farm work! Makes it more bareable having mates at the hostel and people you can relate to while doing farm work. Go at a good time where there’s loads of work so from November - March 😊 lovely owners and great location!

    Really nice, laidback and clean hostel. Great staff and it’s located right next to the river and 2 min walk from the supermarket and other shops. They could do with new mattresses but overall I had a great experience here.

    • Hostelcritic.com review

    Brook Lodge is a good hostel, but it’s a place for working travellers and the beds are only sold on a weekly rate. The manager does an impressive job helping out his guests with jobs and he provides free transport to and from work. The hostel has good facilities that include a kitchen, internet access, pool table, table tennis, barbecue, laundry and a bar. There’s also a TV room with film characters painted on the walls. It is clean and well maintained.

    • Hostelz.com :

    HORRIBLE -- management is RUDE, place is FREEZING and DIRTY

    This is the worst hostel -- saying the rooms are freezing is an understatement, outside is warmer than the room. They leave the heating on for just two hours at night. The rooms are so damp that the blankets and the walls feel damp. There is no laundry, the windows in the showers are always open and cannot be closed. There are no freezers, only fridges. Management is also very rude, its a horrible place to stay.

    Disgusting cold and boring

    Very Good

    Very friendly residents, walking distance to beach and town centre. The 4bed girls dorm stank horrendously like sweat or dirty feet which no fresh air could pass. The bathroom facilities were clean enough, but so basic that u can't put your stuff anywhere at all. The bed was squeaky and uncomfortable with a very old mattress. Overall friendly and basic clean, but overpriced.

    • Tripadvisor: (2/5)

    Has potential but bad in general

    Good location and chill areas. Pretty expensive for such a lack of facilities. The kitchen hasn't got many appliances and what there is is filthy eg. the oven. The men's showers have no pressure and are often dirty. Things that get broken don't get replaced which shows how little the staff care about the hostel. There's no staff at the hostel from 10am-4pm and again after about 6/7pm apart from a backpacker who is meant to control the place. Also the hostel fails to find much work.

    •  Booking.com: (1/10)

    Bad

    Was impossible sleep because people do not respect the rules of silent after 10 pm. They also let's people put music really loud until 10 am. Room are with Windows in the entertaining area. I couldn't sleep in all the night

    • Hostelworld: 6/10

    Every evening I was there, there were party’s going on until all hours of the morning with very loud music. 50 percent of the people hanging out at the hostel were not paying guests, and with no security at the hostel or anybody managing after hours, it felt unsafe. I myself had to go out and turn music down. On 2 occasions there was vomit filling the bathroom sink as well as all over the toilet and floor. I drove over broken beer bottles twice in the parking lot.

    • Tripadvisor: 4/5

    I found the host was very relaxed and helpful, providing friendly advice about local sights to see, especially the local beaches and the old whaling station. Unfortunately it was cut short by the intensifying Corvid-19 virus as I had to get back to NZ while I can before the airlines suspended flights.

    In the 3 weeks I stayed there, my room was cleaned only onceaonce the bathroom decor is old and tatty. Also the noise of the trains early in the morning woke me up. The advertised fast WiFi was too slow until I mentioned it to management. I will not be staying there again.

    • Hostelworld: (9.4/10)

    Great hostel!! Super close to everything, easy to check in and had some delicious food at the bar downstairs! Everything was nice and clean, would stay again!! Just a little suggestion: the timer for the lights in the female toilets went a little fast, strongly recommend changing that so we feel more comfortable having a shower and using the toilet!

    Nice staff, great location

    The owner was super nice and gave me a very comfortable room at the top floor with a nice view when my neighbor put there tv so loud I couldn’t hear my own thoughts. They also did room service which was great because of the corona virus. Very clean place.

    Great Location

    Booked a last minute room here and staff was very friendly. The hostel has a lot of art work painted on the walls and displayed. Love the vibe. Beds were comfy however there was no heater in the room so it was chilly. The toilet has its own room and you have to walk accross the hall to get to the showers to wash your hands

    Nice hostel good location and mikki on the desk is super nice! Karl the manager on the desk is a really weird aggressive man who shouts at people for not cleaning dishes and also doesn't allow any drinking of alcohol whatsover. Good hostel but Karl makes it an unpleasant place

    The only thing I would change is it could have had better pillows.

    Good base

    The hostel was a nice base to explore the region. On check in you get cutlery and plates. However in the kitchen everything is sticky. The bedrooms and bathrooms are clean. A recommendation for the hostel would be to provide a tea towel to dry your own kitchen ware. Overall good stay and friendly staff

    The owner so very Kind

    Hostelworld: (5.1/10)

    Unfortunately the hostel isn't looked after well, very old not well maintained. The bathroom was fairly clean but only one working shower, common areas are dirty, smelly. No keys for the rooms and everyone can just enter the premises unnoticed from the back and easily access the rooms unseen. There is a dog living there which isn't mentioned anywhere, it is barking and growling at guests and behaves scary at times. Breakfast is basic, staff was nice, lots of weed being smoked all over.

    Hostelworld: (6.3/10)

    Really not the place to stay if you’re used to a standard of a YHA. If you are totally laid back, you’ll find the place to be charming but I wouldn’t recommend it. Felt more like a ramshackle university house and I’m past that. Limited facilities and worn out, people can easily walk in and out if they choose - it had looked as if someone had previously tried to break into the room we were staying in. No lockers available but we did have a lock on our door (twin bed private room).

    Tripadvisor: (3.5/5)

    I enjoyed my stay at this very chilled back packers. It is not luxury and is not clean (the kitchen and sofas outside are gross), but the other guests and staff are super friendly and welcoming.

    Kitchen and rooms were pretty untidy and you can tell the people staying here are mostly working in the area and here for a while. It's got a homey feel to it which is nice, but be prepared for messy/gross shared spaces.

    I felt safe here and everyone is happy to chat about the area and share info and tips on surf/wine/life! Bonus points for Holmes the dog.

    If you're on a budget and want to chill with interesting people, I recommend it; just relax your expectations of hygiene.

    5 star location, 3 star hostel. There is nothing else in the Margaret River town which seems to be affordable for humble backpackers who want to stay in Margaret River Town. However the hostel itself I’d say was average. Can’t say I liked it, but it fit the purpose for 30 bucks a night in a 4 bed dorm. They have a nice dog too.

    First impression: Nice staff, comfy beds, decent shower. The double bed rooms are further away from the busy part of the hostel, seperate kitchen in this part of the building. Price is a bit high for the standard, but hey we've only spent our first night here so actually I can't tell what else is here to find.

    • Tripadvisor: (1/5)

    Very bad, even for budget accommodation

    Had to book a last minute room in MR, and it was all that was left.

    Terrible standard for a reasonably priced private hostel room. Very dated and unclean furnishings and tiles loose in bathroom. Not a comfortable sleep at all. Friendly staff was about the only pro. Needs a serious make over.

    • Tripadvisor: (1/5)

    Awful!

    Would not recommend this lodge. While I didn’t have high expectations this place is awful. Staff were very friendly and helpful and that was the highlight. The family room was filthy, smelly and overpriced. The mattress had a sink hole in the middle of it! I will be having the longest shower of my life when I leave here.

    Disgustingly dirty and dissapointed

    Let me start by highlighting we stayed in a centre cabin...when i say cabin...i mean shipping container. You would also think cabin would mean a little cleaner...but i honestly dont know if this shipping container has ever been cleaned. I could have collected the lindt and created a sculpture for the next person to inform them to run and not stay.

    Im pretty sure we had a family staying with us because next door we could hear everything - the walls were as thin as paper. Considering the small space of a shipping container (portacabin for the Brits) one would expect logical furniture, however the largest piece of furniture was a giant desk with many shelves that you would expect someone to write their memoirs - i would have prefered a second bed as the so called sofa bed is not one...it indeed feels like a table. The actual bed leaves you waking in agony - looking forward to your physio appt so you can recover. You may be thinking that it couldnt have been that bad but it was. Im sure the flies next to the cabinets had died many weeks ago not while we were staying there and could have easily been cleaned, had the room ever been cleaned in its existence. The sponge looked like it had been used for an oil change and the cups were glowing with grease - and i couldnt clean them because of the sponge - pick your risks. Do not be fooled by the advertisement that states it is architectually designed or the hidden gem of Coonawarra. I have never felt so sore or dirty after staying anywhere else. The owners really need to step up and take some responsibility, as I am extremely dissapointed we spent any money here. It was disgustingly dirty and disgraceful.

    • Google Review: (3/5)

    Stayed here from November 2017 to March 2018.

    Basically all people staying in this hostel are working holiday people under 30 trying to get their second year visas. The hostel hires people to mainly potato/onion factories where the salary is usually around 20$/h. New people arriving to the hostel go at the bottom of a work waiting list and usually get work from the factories in two weeks. I got hired in two days, but some people had to wait for THREE WEEKS to start work (the hostel staff doesn't always know if there's work available, yet promise to find you a job "very soon"). The work in the factories is simple (usually packing and stacking potato creates/sacks for boys and grading for girls) and you don't have to do your 2nd year visa work under a burning sun. The many vineyards around Barossa also hire backpackers but you usually need to find grape picking jobs on your own.

    The amount of work different people get in the factories isn't balanced. Some people work five days a week, and some only three or even two days a week! If you don't get enough work in one factory, just change to another!

    Sometimes one of the factories (Virginia Farm Produce) randomly fires around ten people and then instantly hires other new ten people! For no apparent reason! They only do casual contracts so they don't even need to tell you that you're not working in the factory anymore. This happened to me TWO WEEKS before I was about to leave so I had no way of getting steady work before my departure (most jobs do 3-month contracts).

    The HOSTEL itself isn't too bad. There's a lot of mosquitoes, but the showers and toilets work and are clean. There's a tv-room with a broken PS3, most people plug their computers to the tv to watch movies.

    The kitchen is very often very dirty and crowded but they have free pans and pots for you to use. They have containers for dry foods and fridges that are usually full.

    It seems like most locking systems in the lockers are broken and the doors to the rooms are always open so sometimes a beer or two might disappear if you're not careful.

    The wifi in the hostel definitely IS NOT FREE, it costs 4$ for 5 hours and for the most of the time doesn't even work. There is a library 5 minute walk away that has free wifi and good computers. Foodland is also 5 minite walk away. The hostel also rents vans so if you need Hungry Jack's or cigarettes, you can drive to Nuriootpa (10 min drive away). You can also do free wine tastings in the many wineries around the area.

    Kaiserstuhl Conservation Park (20 min drive away) is also worth seeing. Go there during sunset and you'll see A LOT OF KANGAROOS. Rifle Range Road, the road that goes there, is very scenic so be ready to take some pictures.

    This place is very good for meeting new people. The atmosphere is chill and all people I've met here have been really friendly. The parties are good, but if you're planning to sleep on saturday-sunday nights, be ready to use earplugs.

    • Tripadvisor Review: (4/5)

    Great for work….

    We just finished our month long stay at the Barossa to earn some money.

    Regarding work this place is fantastic they have 2 contracts with local factories and so there is always work if you don't mind being in a factory. If you can try and get a job at Mitolos from what we hear you are treated alot better then at Virginia.

    Regarding the hostel as a place to live.... Saturday nights are party nights so don't expect to be able to sleep before 4am! We moved rooms and actually from room 1 you could hardly hear a thing. Facilities are limited at the Barossa... the kitchen is tiny, only 6 showers for 100 people... 3 in the men's, 2 in the women's and a disabled bathroom. Wifi is expensive (4$ for 4 hours) and there is not enough fridge and food storage space.

    The most negative thing about this hostel is the vans to say they are in a poor state is an understatement. You have to pay 5$ a day per person to use them plus you have to put fuel in. I don't know where the 5$ goes because it certainly isn't on the vans. It was also very stressful at times due to the lack of vans... sometimes you would wonder if you'd even get to work at all. If you have your own car it's assumed that you will drive and take others to work I know some people got annoyed at this as it's 100 km a day added to wear and tear.

    We did meet some fantastic people both at this hostel and at the job they found us. I feel most of the problems could be changed if the owner actually spent some money on the place. It is one of the most expensive places we stayed at so they are deffinately raking it in

    • Tripadvisor Review: (4/5)

     This is a working hostel. So for any backpackers looking for their 2nd year visa, this is as good as I have seen. I however used it as a base for seeing the Baroosa because it is the cheapest option. And it served its purpose. The kitchen could be cleaner but this is the result of working holiday backpackers and there is a professional cleaner everyday. Once more this should only be seen as an option for backpackers seeking their 2nd year visa, and in this case it is very very good

    • Tripadvisor Review: (1/5)

    Disappointing stay as the hostel was in such a filthy state. It had not been cleaned properly for ages. Everywhere you looked, you saw dirt.

    The kitchen was the biggest mess. You could not cook in there even if you wanted to. It was so unhygienic, full of dirty dishes that are left for days, all the countertops dirty/filthy. I have never seen a kitchen as dirty as there. Even one of the staff agreed with me but felt like they had lost the battle against guests not caring to clean after themselves.

    It is a working hostel and the people staying there seem quite young. Lots of noise, partying till whee hours, screaming in the middle of the night. There is no night manager so nobody is in charge.

    The rooms are tiny and messy due to guests staying long term. No air con so it can get quite hot during the day. No vacuuming of rooms so they are also full of dust. Not cool if you are sensitive to dust as an allergic person.

    Barossa valley and Tanunda are lovely places to visit but I highly recommend staying somewhere else

    • Tripadvisor Review: (5/5)

    Thanks you for helping me get my 88 day visa.

    Thank you Barossa Backpackers. You saved me big time I had 3 months to get my 88 day visa and I got it today no problems!

    I found the hostel with a Gum Tree ad which looked fine compared to other hostels I researched and reviewed.

    I came to the hostel by myself and met some fellow English guys who were in the same boat and together we work off the 88 days and best of all had a blast!

    The hostel itself is super clean, staff are super friendly, they have there own transport to work. The only negative is that you have to pay for the internet but there is a free library down the road and it is 200 meter walk to the center of town with an expensive supermarket.

    All in all great times, great people.

    Had an absolutely fantastic time there. Great place to hang out after work. It has so many facilities. All rooms were refurbished during my stay, new paint, shelves, mattresses, some new carpets as well which was very good to see. Overall I very much enjoyed my stay

    • Hostelz.com Review: 

    Loved my stay at Berri Backpackers

    I stayed at Berri Backpackers for 7 months back in 2013. After spending my first year staying in various hostels around Australia and getting more fed up with the living conditions i couldn't quite believe what i'd stumbled across, Berri Backpackers. My memories are of great atmosphere and that everyone was part of the communal life. I made some great friends while staying there, an extraordinarily wonderful place, and benchmark for all other Hostels.

    no rubbish, honest caring and catering owners.

    Cons its far away from your mum if you come from outside australia!

    Pros the work they get you asap, the atmosphere, the friends you make and the caring staff.

    amazing place to stay, i can be very fussy even when it comes to travelling around the world with a pack on my back, but this place was great! the staff made it, its a family business and has been for many years so they know how to look after you, give advice and be polite to the few idiots that you always bump into along the way. close to all shops in the beautifull country town, breathtaking views of the river and stretches of land. i met lots of friends here as most end up staying a few months, great place to get a second w h visa and everyone was so nice as you are all in the same place in life generally. bbq's are held and once you get to know everyone you generally all sit around the table together chatting and eating your cheap dinners of noodels and veggies! there is also a dvd card which makes it easy to relax after work, like a home away from home. i stayed for 4 months last year and did loads, i had a great job which enabled me to save for my flight back to scotland withing 3 weeks, there was the annual hot air balloon show and many cruises along the river, as well as beer and a football at the riverbanks with close friends i met. if you want a place to stay that has a warm and inviting atmosphere and is very clean then stay here, if not enjoy your travels wherever you go. :) :)

    This is a beautiful place to stay. The rooms are smaller than most hotels, and you pay a bit extra. But the view more than makes up for it. Such a beautiful sight being on the river. Being a boat, the whole place rocks a bit every time another boat goes by haha, but you quickly get used to that, and it's only really during the day.

    There are many places to eat and shop within walking distance which is handy.

    I would definitely stay here again.

    (Translated by Google) We would recommend the hostel to everyone. It deserves more than 5 stars! Bronnie is a very good person, takes care of everything. In time like a replacement mother for you. Anyone who wants to spend their 88 days should go to the HTL Hostel. The hostel is super clean, you have everything you need. Kitchen is fully equipped and the rooms are great.

    It was like family. There is a family atmosphere there, which makes work easier and fun when you come "home". Thank you for the wonderful time. We will never forget them.

    Radeka’s Underground Backpackers is located in the heart of Coober Pedy. Within walking distance of pretty much everything in Coober. We arrived in off-peak season and were two of five people staying there so would assume it to be a bit noisy during peak season as there are no doors to the dorms. The dorm rooms were underground as described and a real experience. Kitchen and dining room facilities were available including fridge and freezer, stove top and pantry storage. Would stay here again if I ever head back to Coober.

    • Hostelworld Review: (9.4/10)

    Loved this place. Really good standard of accommodation. The staff provided so much information on check in which made stying here and finding things to do so useful. Looking forward to staying here next time I’m in town. Great place.

    • Tripadvisor Review: (5/5)

    A warm welcome after a long journey

    I had a fantastic stay at the Radeka Downunder Underground Motel and Backpacker Inn. Heather and Gary made me so welcome. I found everything I needed at this well run hostel/motel. There is a variety of accommodation options, for every budget. I found the cost very reasonable for the well organised facilities provided. A very friendly oasis in the desert. Thank you both for a wonderful couple of days and for sharing your knowledge of Coober Pedy with me.

      Liked · Flexible check-in time, adapted to the Greyhound bus Schedule (thank you for letting us check in at 5 am!). Centrally located. Underground rooms. Basic room. Comfortable bed. Spacious common areas. Clean toilets.

      This hotel is for me the best hostel where I've never been by far. It is located 10 meters from the beach. It is very relaxing and cosy hostel. Everything is very clean. The kitchen has all the necessary equipment. The garden is great with a vegetable patch, and a barbecue. The rooms are very clean and some have sea views. Beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are also very clean and functional. The common areas are very large and you can eat while having a view of the sea. There are board games, guitars etc. you can't get bored. I have met amazing people here. Everything is done to have a great stay. I used to travel and stay in a lot of hostels and this one is really great. And the best is obviously the managers of the hostel Jill and Graham who will take care of you during your stay. They really know port elliot and the surroundings. They will be there if you need help, their welcoming is perfect. Thank you so much Jill and Graham, I had an incredible stay here in Port Elliot. If you are still hesitate, go there you will not regret it, you will feel at home and the atmosphere is incredible.

      REALLY BAD, dirty rooms and all other commonity places. No one working with cleaning, or very seldom. Also they force young people to sign an contract ( be cause they help them with some kind of work) to be paying 300 dollars, if they dont stay!!!! But when its so dirty and filthy, and SOOO FAR AWAY to the work, over 1,5 hours by car ONE WAY!!! Going to report this hostel

      Don’t recommend to anyone. Not cheap enough given the conditions.

      Liked · We were lucky and had the dorm room to ourselves. We were also able to checkin at the time that suited us even though no one was there to check us in.

      Disliked · Filthiest backpackers we have ever stayed in. Flies and crumbs in the kitchen, mud and dirt all through the bathrooms and showers, no where to put shower stuff and towel in the shower room. A window was smashed at some point during the night of our stay. There were signs mentioning how police get called regularly to the property due to behaviour of guests. No way of locking our room. This all combined to us feeling unsafe there. Would not recommend to anyone.

      Filthy Amenities

      Men’s toilets were filthy, floor was covered with urine, urinal was out of order and lights did not work. I was too scared to poo. Showers were in need of a thorough clean and there were piles of discarded dirty clothing, toiletries and towels. Not surprisingly they were vacant. Kitchen was expansive, needed a clean and was light on for crockery and cutlery. Accommodation was basic and comfortable, belongings were able to be secured with individual room key and locker. Room needed a sweep and mop as there was rubbish, dust and relics of past guests. Reception was polite and helpful. Guests were friendly and the location was great. More of a cheap workers abode rather than tourist accomodation.

      • Tripadvisor Review: (5/5)

      Well run hostel, great locatiom

      My wife and I visited McLaren Vale overnight en route to Adelaide to sample some of the region's famed wineries. We were very pleasantly surprised with our experience in this well run hostel. We had originally booked a four bed dorm, however we were given a private double room, with no additional charge, when we asked about this on arrival. We were also provided with washing powder free of charge from the friendly and laid back staff. Our room was small but functional. The hostel is extremely well located, only a few hundred metres from the Shiraz Trail, with many wineries within walking distance. Supermarket just around the corner, and there is a very large kitchen to cook in with plenty of space.

      It should be called out this is a backpackers with some longer term guests who are working in the region, which didn't bother us at all but worth being aware of before booking. We would recommend this place to others travelling on a budget in the region.

      The greatest hostel in Australia! Although secluded, Adelaide Hills Backpackers is the place to be! With a picturesque scenery, homely environment, and a great hostess: Heather, you cannot ask for much more. During my two month stay, I frequented the gym, swimming pool and beautiful porch, often. While also making some of the best acquaintances during my Australia trip.

      If you decide to visit, greet Wilbur. The nicest man alive.

      • Facebook Review: (5/5)

      I left yesterday after being at the hostel since September. You won't find a hostel like it anywhere. Everyone in the hotel becomes like family! Heather is amazing! She helps with finding farm work and listens when you need to have a rant about it. � facilities are clean and comfortable and you have full access to a pool (great after a day of farming) and a gym. In the 3 months I've been there we've had parties and dinners together as well as access to cars to go and explore the hills.

      Highly recommend! Thanks to Heather!

      • Facebook Review: (5/5)

      Heather puts a lot of passion into providing a good homely environment. The place is one of a kind, rather remote, but good facilities. I stayed for a couple months and had my own room to myself and got to work out at a fully loaded gym everyday. It was a little hard to come by good work but there was usually something. A lot of the farmers had a poor season because of weather so nobody's to blame for some of the jobs falling through. Anyways, beautiful place and relaxed environment that you won't find in busier hostels.

      • Facebook Review: (5/5)

      Gumhaven is one of the best hostels I've stayed at!

      Located in the Adelaide Hills the hostel is situated in a very picturesque area. On site there's a fully equipped gym, swimming pool, bar and outdoor barbecue area, perfect for summer evenings.

      The general living space is well maintained, has wifi and a tv with free view channels.

      Cars are available onsite to get you to and from work and can also be used for day trips at the weekend.

      I stayed at this hostel for 11 weeks and had an incredible time and met some amazing people.

      The hostel is run by Heather, who's an absolute star, willing to help you with any problems you may have! She makes the hostel feel like home, hosting family dinners and birthday parties, really getting to know the groups.

      I've the most amazing memories from my stay here and would highly recommend Gumhaven to anyone.

      Thanks for the hospitality Titch x

      A wonderful hostel. Very clean and chilled out. They are doing three free dinners a week. We only had the Monday nights vegetarian chili con carne and it was delicious. The rooms seem ridiculously cheap (probably due to the coronavirus). There is a lot of information all over the hostel about washing your hands and looking after yourself and each other. The owners seem to be very pro-active in looking after their guests.

      (Translated by Google) The latter half is Japanese. This hostel is much cleaner and comfortable than before! Though still same economic price and FREE parking.Big balcony with friendly people.1 min walk to catch free bus.supermarket is next door.perfect for long stay people too .;) Many reviews Unlike the contents written in, the toilet and room are now clean. It is a good atmosphere to talk with travelers and play ukulele on a large balcony. It seems that this hostel was the original Japanese inn in Adelaide, and the owner of the Japanese-Japanese family showed me the information notes that the senior backpackers left behind. 1 minute walk to the free bus stop, next to the supermarket. Recommended for long stays! When you arrive in Adelaide, please board the free shuttle bus number 98 or 99. It is about 15 minutes from the center by foot.

      Great place to stay

      The lovely lady at reception was extremely helpful and we are very greatful for the service she gave us. She went out of her way to look up public transport time tables for us and even helped us with trying to cancel tours we were not able to do anymore. Very spacious rooms and fresh clean linen. only problem with the room that could make it a bit more cozy would be a small couch or something comfortable to rest and watch the tv on as you do not always want to be in bed to relax.

      The outdoor area was a lovely area to eat dinner and mingle with other guests with the kitchen on the small side it really was nice to have somewhere to go eat and get out of the way of those cooking. We stayed here last year also and the improvements that have occurred are great. When we come back next time I am sure it will be even better.

      Private ensuite looked like it hadn't been cleaned in quite some time. The location was good for access to the city, but the room was so dirty that we will not be staying again.

      I really love this place.. nice place and people.. and they serve the best pancake i ever tasted.. i ate pancake everyday, really love their pancake.. definitely will be back and stay here when i back to adelaide.. i miss the pancake

      • Hostelworld Review: (9.4/10)

      Good vibes and nice breakfast and dinners! Clean and well situated. Great party atmosphere in evenings and clean in the mornings. Really exactly what you'd want from a Hostel! Real value for money.

      • Tripadvisor Review: (4/5)

      Loud but Yummy!

      Pros:

      Free food!! Tasty pancake breakfasts and four nights a week they make you dinner! Really tasty! Make sure you queue early! Generally plenty for everyone but people go for seconds!

      Facilities were good, toilets/showers upstairs are really good, downstairs is poor.

      Cons:

      Be prepared for party on the weekends! Very loud. Had to ask people to shh at 4am both Friday and Saturday night. Not sure why the front door is at the front by the rooms! The backdoor services the reception and common room so why is this not the front door?!?

      Luggage storage was not secure with the door just open all the time. Backdoor is open all the time so anyone can walk in off the street and they wouldn’t look out of place!!

      Not much room in the dorms and lockers are mostly broken. Had to store my bag on-top of the locker which was a bit of a nightmare

      • Booking.com Review: (2/10)

        The capsule rooms are insane. Amazingly comfortable and self privacy.

      Nixe hostle for traveling in Australia. Parking costs extra 12$ per day but that's OK for in the middle of the city. Minus one star because I think it is expensive for what you get, compared to other hostels.

      • Hostelworld Review: (10/10)

      This hostel was in a great location and had great facilities! Stayed there twice.

      • Tripadvisor Review: (4/5)

      Decent base whilst in Adelaide.

      Large hostel, free pancakes for breakfast was good. Staff were friendly. Bit of a hike to get there from the airport if arriving late at night (but still only a bus ride and a walk). Comfy beds, nice showers

      This place's charm is less in the physical structure, but more those that make them a home. I've got a few examples proving this, but I'll share the most recent. I hadn't been at the hostel in over a month, when a package arrived there for me. A simple e-mail and Pete brought it to the post office and sent it on to me. I offered to cover the postage and he was adement I pay it forward to someone who needs it. Yes it's a hostel, not the Hilton, but I'd argue that Sunny's has better customer service, and definitely more heart.

      What an awesome spot. The owners are possibly the nicest I've met. I drove in on a motorbike and one of the owners helped me do a valve adjustment free of charge.

      Not only that but the spot is great. Adelaide is cool town if you give it a chance. Come to this hostel if you want to make friends!

      The girl on the reception over the weekend. Only thing I regret is not asking for her number. Jk. Real amazing people in the staff and always to help..

      • Hotels.com: (8/10)

      Good place and good location with a friendly staff and one bar available on the balcony. Clean and tidy. Unfortunate my room was close to the bar and its so loud the week end till 2 a.m that its not possibe to sleep.

      • Hostelworld: (7.7/10)

      Reasonably priced in a great location. Bar sells pints for $5.50 which is much appreciated. Some rooms to back onto the bar so it can be quite loud. If you're looking for somewhere quiet look elsewhere. If location and price are all that matter then I can't fault the Blue Galah.

      • Hostelworld: (4.9/10)

      Visted the blue galah hostel. It was a very dark hostel, there were people living there and the hostel did not smell great. Very stuffy and a dark hostel. Showers were okay but other than that I was glad to check out. Kitchen was small and dirty but the the kitchen was equipped. Location is right in the city but would not stay here again.

      Very good location, close to Coles, Adelaide central market and Adelaide central bus station. A walking distance from Rundle mall and Hindley Street. Also close to buses which bring you to the airport. …

      • Google Review: (1/5)

      The place is next to a road with heavy traffic (i didn't know that as i booked the place from Melbourne), couldn't sleep at all. I left the day after and lost the bond but any way i was probably going to loose it as the owner of the place didn't sound honest at all! I found for a couple of dollars more a nice and calm airbnb in the same area.

      • Google Review: (1/5)

      You should not rent this bnb because the owner does not keep his word, he is dishonest. He clearly told me he will pay me back for a vacant room, and for a week no news. Really disappointed

      • Google Review: (4/5)

      Good , clean and quiet. Good place for short term stay. Location is also very convenient. It's just besides tramp station 6

      • Google Review: (3/5)

      Pretty good place, not quite exactly as described and shown in pictures but nice place none the less. Some repairs need to be done but good kitchen and bathroom. Internet only works half of the time.

      • Google Review: (1/5)

      You should pay 300$ for bond but Usually, the manager is not at the office. It is hard to get back the bond in person when you leave. Even if you call the manager after you leave here to get back the bond, he rarely answer the phone. Many guys haven't been getting back there bonds at the moment.

      • Google Review: (3/5)

      Amazingly central with great access to buses, trams and trains from the centre making it easy to travel around Adelaide and its suburbs, the staff are extremely helpful when you ask them any questions however are more geared towards downstairs (the pub/bar and slot machines) compared to other hostels. The beds in the rooms were great with plenty of space however there was only 1 double socket for a room of 6 which meant some other guests would charge their stuff in the night after taking yours out. There was not much space in the kitchen especially fridge space was lacking for the amount of people staying there, however there are a couple of supermarkets just a short walk away so it’s not a big issue as most people just buy and cook their stuff straight away. The kitchen facilities are not the cleanest and most hygienic I have used.

      • Hostelworld Review: (5.7/10)

      I have stayed in many hostels for 15 years but this one I can’t recommend. The shared bathrooms were dirty, toilets disgusting, sometimes no toilet paper, no toilet brush... On top of it, it’s super noisy. You can not only hear the street noise of drunk teens but also other guests were slamming doors (kinda unavoidable because they only shut by slamming). If you can, stay somewhere else.

      • Hostelworld Review: (10/10)

      Stayed in a double room with my missus. Clean Bar Fridge and sink in room with good solid bed and good mattress. Considering its above a pub not too loud but did only stay during the week. Great location, couldn't be anymore central to everything. Friendly, helpful staff. A Free use washer and dryer.

      What an amazing stay!

      One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Debi and Rob were so welcoming and informative. They went above and beyond. The rooms were super clean, the beds comfy and the facilities were amazing! Also the TV in the room was a bonus! We stayed here for two nights while we did our shark cage dive. The hostel has a movie room, lounge area and bar. It also has amazing kitchen facilities and outside area. Thank you so much for our stay!

      Very nice place . Annoying owners

      Liked · Very clean hostel , almost like brand new. Great TV room .

      Disliked · Beds were to small . The owners were annoying. Having a a moan about everything because they see it as there house not as you being a paying guest . Literally every day you wake up they'll have something to moan about which made the stay not as good because I was on edge

      • Hostelworld Review: (10/10)

      I had a great time at the hostel. It’s very clean, everyone is very helpful, especially Debbi. Really recommend and it’s near the shark diving centre

      Kitschy, eclectic space with a great vibe. The dorms were clean, the common spaces ample. Staff is incredibly patient and helpful. Salamanca and Constitution Dock (MONA ferry!) are a 10 minute walk, in addition to lots of eateries ($-$$$$) and groceries. Communal luggage room available with lockers for a fee (didn’t use cuz my dorm mates were awesome and there was plenty of storage space under and around the bunks). Minimalist accommodation but so cozy and welcoming. Will definitely stay here again!

      Disappointing.

      Downstairs bar and nooks for seating dining. Warm friendly welcome but then went downhill from there.

      Security lax with open rear windows. Noise from tv till midnight, common room till later. Cleaner emptied bottle bins 6am! Dorm a mess. Door handle broken. No bed light. No power or usb. No shelf. Sheet felt and smelled unclean. Pillows need replacing. Bathroom upstairs and all the way to rear of building. Maintenance lacking. Door missing from mens toilets...

      Would we stay again. No.

      • Hostelworld Review: (10/10)

      Super cosy, chill, warm and easy to be comfortable. Really nice atmosphere among everyone staying there - some long termers. Comfy beds and nicely laid out 14 bed dorm, didnt feel crowed at all even though was full. Reception always happy to help and provide info. The tours they offer were involving good attractions, although i didnt go on the tour myself. Around the corner was Eurocar where we rented a car, soo convenient and a two min walk away from the hostel. Great time, I love Tasmania.

      • Tripadvisor Review: (2/5)

      I didn't enjoy it

      I was in a 14 beds room, overcrowded, not well ventilated, nor good illumination. The stuff isn't the helpfull, everything seems over capacity.

      My friend had a bug in her bed, and they didn't give her any compensation for the night she had to spent sleeping in the living room. They only changed her room.

      Lots of long term guest, so may be hard to socialize if you're there only for a few days

      It’s very funky and fun. Building is a little old and it’s not that close to downtown. Great fun if you like hostels (and I do)

      Convenient location; bathrooms were clean; private room was very large with a comfortable bed; quiet

      • Hostelworld Review: (6/10)

      I've been very unhappy with how the management treated us. We got fined 30$ for something that was purely an accident and I've never been so ashamed of the behaviour of someone else before. It was absolutely reckless that they fined us and although the hostel was nice and the other guests and the staff extraordinarily friendly, I left with a bad feeling. The management is not open to find compromises.

      • Tripadvisor Review: (3/5)

      Good and bad

      Need more private bathroom and shower. And they don't look clean. Kitchen is mess no place to put food in the fridge. No much plates and cups. The chair and sofa look dirty need a cover so that they are wash every time.

      Beds are good and comfy. Need more storage places in the room.

      • Booking.com Review: (9/10)

      Comfy bed. Clean rooms.

      Disliked · One toilet in the men's room. Water soaked carpet in the vicinity of the men's bathroom at the time of our stay - must have been a plumbing issue. I hope this was sorted.

      I really liked the nook. I stayed for several nights here. It was comfortable. The kitchen was good. The hostel itself was not very full (due to travel restrictions from COV-19) which did make it easier to use the kitchen. I liked the laid back feel here.

      • Hostelworld Review: (10/10)

      Loved my stay at the hostel it is well managed by Robbie Kept well cleaned and tidy and it’s very welcoming to all the people and Would definitely want to stay here again.

      Superb Place! Overall the best value for money.

      Superb Place to be. Staff is extremely helpful and often go the extra mile to help you. Good amenities and a welcoming lounge where everyone can socialize.

      Very Close the city centre (2min) and value for money for the location and services.

      Clean rooms and bathrooms. Huge kitchen so we don't have to queue and wait. Separate bbq station and entertainment area. Ping pong, Movie room, pool table. Secure Parking too. They also give free tours to Mt Wellington :)

      First Hostel Experience

      Located very near the water, Salamanca Place, and in Battery Point, this property offered multiple lodging options and was a clean, well managed alternate to other, more expensive options. No snoring from the five other women bunking in my shared room.

      • Hostelworld Review: (10/10)

      Truly beautiful hostel in the historic Hobart suburb of Battery Point, an easy walk from the airport bus. Best hostel kitchen I’ve encountered, including plenty of regularly washed tea towels! I’d definitely stay there again, in a heartbeat.

      • Tripadvisor Review: (5/5)

      Just perfect for me

      I have being staying here for two nights.

      This hostel is easygoing, quite, clean and well organised.

      There is everything you need: lots of space to enjoy, laundry, nespresso machine, free te and coffee and a free car park.

      • Hotels.com Review: (6/10)

      First stay at a YHA. Very nice and helpful staff. Great location. Our private, ensuite room was separate from shared rooms and facilities and was quiet. However, the property is pretty run down and needs a major upgrade. Common kitchen is small and had many flies. Sheets and towels did not smell or looked clean.

      • Tripadvisor Review: (3/5)

      Situated right in the centre of Hobart, it’s in a perfect location for all your activities. Rooms and bathrooms were very clean and I never felt unsafe during my stay. The winning part of this hostel is it’s incredible staff. They were so friendly, caring and understanding. I had to extend my stay a few times due to the COVID situation and they could not have been more accommodating. I felt so comfortable here.

      Consider your options

      I stayed here for one-night before transferring on to a tour, so can only really judge the ease of check-in and room comfort.

      As I arrived late and the reception was closed, I pre-confirmed a mechanism for checking-in. As it happened, without an Australian SIM card, I had to log on to the hostel’s WiFi and call the number left on the door. This wasn’t a simple solution.

      I arrived in town after a warm day and tried to sleep in a room without a fan or a/c. This was a challenge, whilst it was also on a creaky, metal bunk.

      It’s therefore my conclusion that there must be more comfortable local, budget accommodation options for using whilst in town.

      Very good

      Super central location! The room was very clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly.

      Luggage storage was unlocked with the door open all day. The storage is also shared with the restaurant, so there was very little room to leave bags.

      • Google Review: (4/5)

      This's to provide a hack for future fellow travellers to get around the cold showers. I really like Tassie Backpackers at The Brunswick so criticising it is like criticising a good friend, you don't really want to. I love the character of the old building, it gives you a taste of the old Hobart which is really nice and the lounge and rec areas are cosy, it's reasonably sociable, generally good people and vibe. Ok - so it generally has barely warm showers unless you get in early but the hot water runs out very quickly. I got lucky the first day and got actually consistent hot water which I never have there before, but the second day they were lukewarm at best and given there were two unexpectedly freezing cold mornings in Hobart, this would've been intolerable and I honestly don't know how people there do it. Two get arounds, one of which I'd resolved to do if I ever stayed there again and this happened is the Doone Kennedy Aquatic Centre is 10 minutes walk east of there, easy to get to and for $2 non-swim entry you can have a warm shower, which I did. The second, which I discovered later that day, is that there are free showers on Level 3 of the car park of all things attached to the shopping centre with the Woolworths in it across the road from the Brunswick. If the hot water is next to nonexistent which it mostly is I *strongly* recommend one of these two options unless it's summer and hot as in the colder months the cold showers are just horrible. The only other thing is there are hardly ever any bowls in the kitchen which from what I observed is because guests pilfer them which really isn't cool. But not the fault of Tassie Backpackers, you just have to be prepared is all I'm saying.

      Was here very briefly, but for what I needed this place was perfect! Cheap accom in an old building, it’s what you would expect for the price. Location was perfect, accom a little tricky to navigate so could use some better signage for bathroom/toilet and kitchen, but it has character. Relaxed vibe, a bit noisy with the pub, minimal AC and power points for charging in rooms but portable fan and gang plug was provided. A good base for work/holiday trip. Would stay again!

      • Tripadvisor Review: (5/5)

      Stayed at the Ibis styles hotel. It was our first visit to Hobart & we were really pleased with the location of the hotel. It was an easy walk to Salamanca markets & all the main Hobart attractions. Lovely staff & it was no problem to organise a late check out as we had an afternoon flight back to Sydney. We had breakfast twice in the dining room which was very enjoyable but unfortunately didn’t have dinner as we had made other plans. Lovely modern hotel our room had views to Mt Wellington. Will definitely return.

      • Google Review: (5/5)

      This review may not be relavent to the current staff but I stayed in this hostel 12years ago when my son was 4 and I was 22 he love this huge place that he slid around on his socks everywhere. The place was clean and welcoming and most of all warm, in both felling and tempeture. It's hard to backpack with a toderler and this place made it easy. My son met people from all over the world, I remeber him siting quietly talking with a young lady from Germany they were discussing why jimmy Newtron was better than spong bob. I honestly have never to that day, or this had such an easy backpackers exprence with a child. Most places won't allow children let alone make them feel greate about there adventures.

      • Google Review: (1/5)

      If I could give 0 stars, I would give them. The facilities in this hostel are totally down and except that we found mold in the curtain in our room. They offered us another room but still with mold in the courtain. We paid for a whole week and even if they had no mold free room for us they were not willing to give us the money back. I have asthma and we told them. We couldn't stay there checking out after one night and lost 340$.

      They told us that they clean the courtains oftenly with mold killer. After our reclamation they washed the curtain again and after that it was so much cleaner than before that I can't believe they wash them often. The whole hostel smells very humid.

      Also the aura is really bad. This hostel was an home for elderlys before and it looks actually still the same.

      Everytime we told some local where we stayed they knew immediately that's a shity place.

      • Hostelcritic.com Review: (3/5)

      This is a sprawling place with lots of rooms, and not bad facilities. I was there at a quiet time however, and there was not a single other person staying there. The dorms are quite big, but very bare and dull. No linen comes with the beds, and they are very basic, but the hostel is also very cheap. I paid just $12 a night there. A negative point is that the hostel is way out of central Dewvenport - not too far to walk if its a nice day, but not pleasant in the rain.

      • Hostelcritic.com Review: (3/5)

      We stayed here for 2 nights and took advantage of a top tour to Cradle Mountain - $50pp. The owner is nice and the hostel was an old nurses accommodation, it was quite drafty as middle of winter, but the duvet supplied for the double rooms was excellent! There are some longer staying residents there who are strange to say the least, but every night @ 6:30pm there are FREE cakes and bread for all!

      • Tripadvisor Review: (3/5)

      Not good for couples. Great for groups of 4-6.

      Rooma qere ok, comfortable beds. The cabins are shared between several travellers so even if you book a private room, you will be staying with single travellers as well. Confined space and very noisy. We had 2 terrible single travellers in the cabin whom played loud music and made excessive noise. We went to complain but the reception advised us we would have to deal with the travellera ourselves or upgrade to a private cabin ($50 extra). We decided to just stay and was very happy to leave the next day.

      Beautiful place to stay!

      • Google Review: (2/5)

      We left as soon as we were able to secure alternative accommodation after discovering a lot of long hair strands under the bottom pillow. Top pillowcase looked like it had been washed but there is no way the sheets and/or bottom pillow case could have been washed with that much hair under and hanging from the pillow. Can't comment on any of the other facilities as we didn't stay, the hair was too off-putting

      • Hostelworld Review: (10/10)

      Great people, Good Place. Good value.

      • Tripadvisor Review: (9.7/10)

      Good vibes but grotty hostel

      Stayed here for a few nights in a mixed dorm. The place had good vibes, friendly staff and plenty of chatty and friendly people. It’s also very cheap as well.

      The drawback was that the facilities were very grimy and in disrepair. The kitchen and bathrooms were especially bad. The kitchen had grease dripping down the walls, chunks broken off the walls, a hole in the roof above the stoves and was absolutely filthy. Many of the showers were out of order (had to try 3 different showers before I found one that worked, wasn’t just a dribble and the taps hadn’t fallen off!!) but even the one working shower I found was mouldy, the laminated side wall had peeled off and there was hair everywhere. It’s a cheap hostel so I guess you get what you pay for!

      One night stop over

      We stopped here during a tour and as it wasn't too busy we had a whole dorm room for me and my girlfriend (which is the dream in hostel life). The fella on the front desk was helpful and knowledgable, the kitchen was well equipped and they even had some adorable dogs wandering around. The room was pretty standard for a hostel, beds were a bit squeaky when turning in the night would be my only complaint.

      Perfect place to stay in Launceston to walk Overland Track. Clean, quiet we had a spacious twin room

      Liked · This was the perfect place to stay while in Launceston ready to walk the Overland Track. We had a twin room which was very spacious and we loved the cleanliness of the whole place. The kitchen was great to cook our own meals, with a Coles supermarket just up the road. Most of the other backpackers were young internationals, extremely polite and very quiet.

      Disliked · Nothing could be better. It was all perfect for our requirements. Not luxury class, but perfect for us.

      This place could be one of the best hostel... But... We never received any email regarding the fact that the owner won't be there to welcome us. And we had no code for the door... The kitchen was not clean at all, and the rest of the place was extremely messy... Such a waste.

      And for the price ($35) to not have WiFi... It's clearly not normal

      Terrible Service

      Out of all the hostels I've stayed at across the world, this is one of the worst for cleanliness and facilities, especially considering the price to stay here. However, this isn't the reason why I feel the need to write a review recommending that you do NOT stay here.

      The reason you shouldn't stay here is because of the owner: Jayne.

      Jayne is rude and aggressive to the backpackers staying at the hostel on a daily basis. It is clear that her motive for running the hostel is solely to take as much money from us as she can. If we ever made any complaints, Jayne's response was:

      "If you don't like the way I run things, leave!"

      which is exactly what most of us did (after giving 14 days notice to get our $200 deposits back, of course). We naively assumed that - during these 14 days - Jayne would leave us alone and just wait for us to leave, however she continued worse than before, name calling and threatening to kick people out at ridiculous hours of the evening. Worst of all: she actually phoned our employer in an attempt to get us all fired from our jobs.

      During my stay at Huon Valley Backpackers I thankfully meant some great people. It's just a shame that the atmosphere was always ruined by Jayne. I'm now staying in a gorgeous Airbnb for a cheaper rate with some of the people I met, would strongly recommend this to anyone completing their 88 days farm work in Huon Valley, Tasmania.

      Jayne

      If you're reading this from the mainland, and you're considering coming to Tasmania to do farm-work: stay clear of this area. There are limited employers and limited places to stay, and the people in charge will take advantage of that.

      Jayne, who runs Huon Valley Backpackers, is no exception. She will take every opportunity possible to take more money from you, on top of the premium price that she is already charging for a less-than-premium service.

      I could rant all day, but I don't want to waste more time than I already have arguing with Jayne. I tried to explain to her (in person) that perhaps charging $600+ per month to live in a house with:

      - a mouse-infestation

      - no working oven

      - limited heating

      - limited electricity (no plug sockets in the rooms and only a few in total)

      - limited hot water (four minute showers)

      - no wifi in the hostel itself, and terrible wifi in reception

      ...was perhaps too much to charge, especially to backpackers who are earning very little as it is. But she told me that this was simply because I didn't understand how to run a business.

      I have never run a hostel. But from the way Jayne acts, you would think she hadn't either.

      On one occasion, we were woken in the middle of the night by Jayne. She was shouting and screaming at one of the backpackers in the corridor outside the bedrooms. We had to be up at 5:30am the next morning, but that didn't stop Jayne. In the end, she only left when we begged her to go and let us sleep.

      I truly believe that Jayne hates backpackers - she said as much to several of us - and THIS is the real problem with Huon Valley Backpackers. Every day she came into the hostel and found something to tell us off for. I could put up with the basic services and facilities, but what I couldn't put up with was Jayne's attitude towards us. About half of the people staying at HVB moved out before the end of the season, and the reason for this (for every single one of us) was to get away from Jayne.

      The ONE positive that came from staying with Jayne is the other backpackers we met. So, if it's too late, and you're already here, then here's what I recommend: stay at Jayne's for a week or so, then get a group together and find an Airbnb to move to. That's what we did eventually. And we're certainly getting a lot more for a lot less money than we were at Jayne's.

      Fantastic experience

      Stayed here 2014 had the most amazing time. You get wat u pay for with the accommodation but it is cleaned daily janye does her best to find u work and is fair. Met amazing people an still speak to some of them to this day. Only downside was some of the local people are not very genuine an were jealous of Jayne business they wud pass negative comments in the local pubs.

      But get out there an do it for cherries season u will look back an smile u will meet great people

      Unless you like filth, run.

      Although I appreciate HVB is a basic country accommodation this fact is not an excuse for filth and the fact that it is so basic ought to be taken into account when calculating the ridiculous price of the rent. There are three different “hostels” and depending on which you’re staying in you can pay up to $210 a week for the “top” accommodation in ‘Flashpackers’ or the lower end at $180 a week in ‘Cygnet’. There isn’t much difference between the two other than heating and plug sockets. In both you are required to keep your showers to three minutes. In Cygnet there are approx 16 people sharing 2 showers and one kitchen. Both showers of which are poor quality and located in outbuildings just off the main shed/bunk area. The rooms are very small and cramped. The hostel is actually located around 20/30 minutes away from the nearest town and farms. We waited a week before being contacted by the farm for work and the whole experience was very unprofessional and disorganised.

      If you’re willing to pay an extortionate amount of money for very basic and dirty accommodation (there is no cleaner for Cygnet and the “cleaner” in Flashpackers is another hostel guest) then Huon Valley is perfect.

      Also good luck getting your deposit back, only when legal action was discussed did Jayne “consider” giving ours back. Luckily we did get it back after much email discourse.

      I am not one for giving a bad review but I felt this hostel really ought to be exposed for exploiting young backpackers. Being charged $210 a week for horrible accommodation, plus potentially paying for transport each day and then not being given a fair wage from the farm is simply wrong. Piece rate 8/10 isn’t enough for even the most capable of workers. They claim that you’re meant to pick a minimum of 5 bins a day per person but most fit and healthy young pickers average 3 a day. 3 x 48 = 144. In an 8 hour day that’s $18 an hour. Casual work minimum wage is just under $25 an hour. Fair enough if you’re a super picker but if you’re not you’re going to struggle. A lad we met who is still working at the farm is currently only earning $90 per day.

      A lot of the backpackers just ended up smoking copious amounts of weed to forget their horrid day!

      I would avoid Huon Valley all together and just head north. There seemed to be far more opportunities in the North I.e. Devonport and Launceston. There are quite a few places who will pay you an hourly wage and working hostels that are affordable with much better facilities. (Some of them will let you clean for two hours in the evenings and you can get your rent for free!) It really is worth looking elsewhere, don’t let yourself get exploited.

      Awaiting the inevitable unprofessional response from the owner but nothing can excuse the den of iniquity that is Huon Valley Backpackers.

      Lovely place in a beautiful setting, peaceful. Surrounded by orchards. Jayne and Andy are very friendly, kind and hospitable people. Would definitely recommend.

      Solid hostel at the seaside

      Close to the beach, which is pro! Clean hostel with absolutely modern and clean bathrooms. Cooking facilities could be better (no one has sharp knives these days).

      Stayed in a two bed room which was pretty warm during the day, but at night, a cool breeze from the seaside brings cooler air.

      Bicheno is somehow close to most sights along the east coast. We also visited Maria island which is about an hour away (plus ferry ride).

      Great Location for Freycinet National Park

      Great location. Our room was small but comfy enough. Hard to plug things in, the beds were against the sockets and when you pulled the one bed away from the wall to use the plug you couldn't open the door. Glad we were in the back building, we only had to share our bath with one other room. Plenty of parking. Safe area. Clean. But absolutely no frills. We all used the kitchen. Would have been nice to have had a few things like oil, salt, pepper, and the like. We've had that at other backpackers and it's truly a nice touch since travelers can't carry around these things. And they are getting good money for providing basically a bed. They also need to buy a couple of new cutting boards, sharp knives, pots (the teflan was so badly scratched, unhealthy) and a few other things for the kitchen. But overall no complaints, just tips for improvement.

      Looks like I dodged a bullet after all

      I wanted to stay here, really. But Tasmania locked down its borders and I couldn't visit (from the closest mainland state, Victoria). They refused to issue a refund or even offer travel credit.

      You can be sure I will not be staying here once your border reopens. There are many other accommodation providers more deserving of my tourist dollars.

      Spirit of Tasmania and the other accommodations we booked with were a class act. Never mind what their booking or cancellations policy stated, refunds were issued. I will remember and try to support them once we are allowed to travel again!
