I chose to stay in a 4-bed room and it was a very nice and quiet experience. Some reviews complained about the noise - none in my case, and it was Sunday. Toilets/showers were clean. Internet was only in the common room and I didn't use it. The only complaint was the kitchen, not that many appliances ...

Book a hostel in Australia
Life is an adventure, and you can experience it all—without breaking the bank. Don’t ignore your free spirit when you travel: stay spontaneous with hostels in Australia. They’re flexible, fun and never have a dull moment, just like you. Plus, the budget friendly nature of a hostel means you can stay longer and check out everything Australia has to offer.

Find your tribe and maximize your good times at Australia hostels. Backpackers, students, and young travelers flock to hostels for their community feel. They’re a great place to meet fellow travel junkies from all over the world and make new friends that will help you get the most out of Australia.

Hostels let you really see Australia
A hostel is your ticket to a great trip in Australia. Some include private rooms, while others offer double beds or bunk beds, so your whole crew can split the cost. If you’re traveling alone, hostels are the perfect way to find your Australia family and maybe even pick up a trail buddy.  

Youth hostels in Australia are the best way to see the sights without losing your savings. Perks can include free Wi-Fi, free breakfast, and options for private rooms and bathrooms. Some hostels also include common areas where you can cook and share meals together, reheat leftovers, or just gather around to swap stories. The manager is likely a local who will be able to suggest new spots in Australia for you to visit. Take your new best friends and get going. Australia isn’t going to explore itself.
