Stayed at this property in January of this year. It is wonderful to read so many positive remarks about Oscar, Lewis and the team on site. You will not meet a nicer bunch of people. They really take the time to show you around and make you feel welcome. I have rated this property as very good for two reasons....

I stayed here for 3 nights and would definitely do it again. The doorms had plenty of space for suitcases etc. and the kitchen was very well equipped. In the evenings there was always something planned so it was very easy to meet people and they had a $5 meal every day. The atmosphere was really nice, the location good...

Backpackers @1770 was the best hostel I've been to so far. The rooms and the kitchen get cleaned every day and the kitchen has everything in it, including a mixer and a sandwich maker. The bathrooms are really modern but there is no need to use the indoor showers because the outdoor shower is amazing. It's really close to the...

We were excited to stay at this hostel as it was rated a 9 on hostel word, the highest rated hostel we had stayed in so far. If I'm honest I'm unsure how it is so highly rated! Apart from the chilled atmosphere and great staff the hostel itself is very dirty and lacks facilities! We stayed in a 10...

Hi Zoe, Thanks for your review, I'm glad you thought we (the staff) were up to scratch but I'm sorry that you didn't rate our facilities. Our ensuite showers: You cannot see into the shower unit itself so I'm unsure how you think they lack privacy? In regards to finding space to get ready I'm shocked as our dorms are...

Planned to stay for one night and ended up staying for 6 weeks. The dorm rooms are well maintained, huge and always clean. The kitchen is well equipped. They offer $5 dinners (vegetarian as well).
