Newcastle Backpackers
Reviewed 6 April 2016

i found this place to bed one of the best places i have stayed yet, can't express how wonderful the staff and the grounds are, Stephen the manager was amazing with the night tours around newcastle and taking us all shopping when it was raining so we didn't get wet, the atmosphere was just great...a big thanks to you for making the last of my trip the most memorable..will be back for shore

Room Tip: the main rooms at the front of the houses are the best.

Booked a double room here, on arrival we were told there wasn't one available so we could either leave or take the 4 bed shared dorm, everywhere else in Newcastle was fully booked as it was surf fest so we had no choice but to stay! Didn't get to have a proper view of the room until night time as we didn't want to wake the guy sleeping in the corner. When we came back we entered the room to find out the light did not work, when we asked staff we were told to ask Stephen but not to wake him as he gets angry! Staff seemed scared of him. We were tired and decided to just sleep in the dirty dark room but when we got into bed and turned our touches on we realised the walls had great big holes in with cobwebs everywhere and the sheets absolutely stunk! We ended up leaving and was told refund was available as we weren't allowed to wake Stephen yet again. Avoid at all costs! Absolutely disgusting!

We stayed in Newcastle as a stop off, ahead of Sydney to break up the journey. Upon check in, there was an issue with our payment (which we had paid) however this was down to hostelworld I believe, rather than the hostel itself. Whilst checking in, the guy dealing with us started a discussion with his colleague regarding what they were having for dinner that evening, and other subsequent plans. We had just driven for around seven hours plus, and wanted to our room and found this very frustrating and extremely rude. I didn't find the toilet and shower facilities to be the cleanest, and would have to say it was my worst hostel experience during my time in Australia.

This is the first backpackers my friend and I have stayed at. Everyone was super friendly and the staff are amazing. Its in a good loccation and have a beautiful outside area with a pool and hammocks. If im in the area again ill definitely return. Its a really fun place to stay.

We had a room with 4 beds. It's quiet big and got everything you need. A nice living room with a kitchen.. Enough space for everyones food.. A supermarket is near the hostel. Some pubs are around. There is a nice walking area along the coast with a great view.
