Everything in this hostel
The attitude of the staff, our special thanks to Fenansha and Penny!
The location is great, people in there are cool, facilities are complete and we slept well because it is a rather quiet place. I would definitely recommend.
But not have power plug in room
The location was good and convenient. I've been there for a week and the security was satisfying even though I was back to the hostel late on certain days. The bed was clean and I was also satisfied with the bathrooms. The staff were helpful too. I made new friends there. It was also the 2014 FIFA World Cup when I stayed there and I got to watch the matches with bunch of friends there. It was an amazing experience staying there and I'd definitely recommend it to my friends.
Would be great if the breakfast could be provided until 10am because I couldn't wake up that early.
Just nearby from the public transport. Very convenient if you take public bus from the airport to Backpack OZ. Room is clean n spacious. Breakfast and wifi is free. Definitely will come here again.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Facilities were good. I enjoyed my stay.
Not enough space in the room
Good communal area with great range of DVDs and books. One night a week there is free dinner.
Stayed 1 night @ 11 May. With guide from hostel staff via email, managed to find it easily. Walking distance to few attractions nearby and to one of the tram station, which you can take when you want to go to beach or city
Lights in the 4 dorm room, suggest to install small lights for each bed rather than having 1 main lights, which is quite dim. Not sure what is it like with other type of room. Other than this, all perfect.
- centrally located within walking distance of the Central market, Coles supermarket, central city, gas station. - evening activities: free dinner and the social night.
Everything you need for budget stay. It's not new but clean and charm itself. Shower rooms and toilets are very clean. Well equipped kitchen. Bus stop to Cleland Wildlife Park and Hahndorf is just cross the street. Don't be serious about quiet location, trust me you can walk to everywhere in CBD. It's such a good place to meet new friends from other countries around the world.
The staff are helpful. Quantity of shared toilet and bathroom are enough and clean. I left few days before easter, had chocolate easter eggs in the breakfast tray, cute.
Backpack Oz is located along the corner of main street intersection as the fire station at another corner, my room is at the road side on 2nd fl. Had to open only 1 window for air conditioned, so noisy from traffic and racing cars with horns especially Friday and Saturday night.
staffs are very kindness.
Reception is quite nice especially boss Sam. They tried to provide sifficient help and always smiled. Love the atmosphere of OZ and love the great location of OZ. Will come back next time!
they have a free pool table
poor breakfast just like all of Oz
free pick up and drop off, washing machines wash with hot water, wifi works perfectly even in the rooms, free breakfast every morning, free dinner on Wednesdays, whiteboard in the lounge suggests places of interest, very clean
you can hear the sirens from the nearby police and fire stations
The staff were very friendly and helpful :)
The barbecue on Tuesday night was AWESOME. Thank you. Also the free breakfasts were very much appreciated. The desk people were friendly and helpful.
I lost power to my outlet when I tried to iron my shirts. Couldn't recharge my phone and laptop :-( and the desk person didn't know how to fix it. Bummer
The friendly staff The breakfast The bike hire The location
Great atmosphere, great value and free food on Wednesday evenings - what more could you ask for? Only a short walk away from all the excitement of the city. Very realistic about what their customers want and they provide just that eg. breakfast from 6.00am!
Very nice and care taking staff. They put their pride in providing an awesome place for backpackers. Excellent location in the city. The bedclothes mattresses looked brand new. Free WiFi. Big common area with good atmosphere.
They really do their best, to keep the place very clean and tidy, but some of the interior (like the carpets or the shelves) is old and run down. The walls seemed to be a bit thin. Like you would expect in a Hostel, it can get noisy at times – so bring your earplugs.
Staff were super friendly and extra helpful. Really enjoyed my stay! Sad to leave.. Would recommend to any backpacker :) glad I booked with them.
Couldn't stay for longer as it was fully booked, but that wasn't an issue as I thoroughly enjoyed my stay :)
