Newcastle Backpackers
Reviewed 6 May 2017

We (my friend and me), stayed for one night in the backpackers.
The owner and the manager where nice and friendly. They gave us some information about the area and what we could do.
In the evening we where just hanging around in the hostel, chatted with people and played some games. Exactly what you need to do in a hostel.

Intended to stay only for a night but It was so easy going and nice there, that I decided to stay little bit longer. Easy to park also, right in front of the house, by the streetside. There are some simple house-rules to follow, but they are essential to keep the kitchen and lounging area clean, organised and pleasant to use for everyone. Outdoor barbecue area, Pool table, darts, swimming pool, pingpong table, surfboards, bicycles, big LCD with lot of series and movies to watch. Definitely would stay there again.

These guys were great! Friendly, helpful and really easy to talk to. Appreciated the advice on what and where to go for my first night in Newcastle. Kitchen was good, room's have fan's but no aircon. While quite when I was there the people were friendly as well

It suited my needs perfectly, as it gave me a quiet comfortable dorm bed and access to a well organised kitchen and sometimes access to a bicycle. The hostel consists of a newish purpose built communal area, with kitchen, pool, hammock space, bbq area etc at the back of two older houses which contain the dorms/bathrooms etc. The hostel is well staffed, with plenty of attention to cleaning, making sure the kitchen works (labelled stuff in fridge and shelves and ensuring washing up gets done) and responding to anti-social behaviour.
The houses particularly could do with some more skilled maintenance than they get, things look superficially a bit run down, but the beds in my dorm were new with good firm mattresses, and I didn't sneeze at all, even though I am very sensitive to dust.
There are some friendly helpful longer term residents who are staying while they work, along with the usual stream of short stay backpackers, lots of Germans while I was there.
I stayed for six nights to be in Newcastle for an event that stretched over three days so I had plenty of opportunity to explore the area. It is located on the boundary between a residential area, and a dreary commercial zone of car sales yards and similar. A 24 hour supermarket (Coles at least, and possibly the Woolworths is as well) is about half a km away, and there is that arrangement where all bus trips to and from downtown are free before 6pm.
