I like Australia. It’s one in every of my favourite nations on this planet. I’ve been going for over a decade and have crossed the nation extra instances than I’ve criss-crossed my very own. I’ve stayed in numerous hostels throught Australia and, right now, wish to share a few of my favorites.
Base St. Kilda (Melbourne)
Base is just like the McDonald’s of hostels. You get full however you’re not likely happy. But McDonald’s (Base) outdid themselves with their Melbourne hostel. It’s my favourite hostel in Australia. The bar is full of life each night time, and there are BBQs and occasions through the week. Furthermore, the rooms and loos look very nice and are clear. The bar is open 7 nights per week and so they provide free breakfast from 8am-10am. In addition they have a journey desk, recruitment and jobs desk, and free every day actions. Since individuals come right here to social gathering, everybody may be very social and seeking to work together. Inside moments of my arrival, I had a bunch of associates to spend time with. I went there throughout my first journey to Australia and went again this 12 months to see if it was nonetheless good. It did my recollections justice.
Wake Up! (Sydney)
Wake Up! is, in some ways like a backpacker resort. With its eight flooring, hyper-trendy and clear look, and small widespread areas, you may suppose it could be arduous to fulfill individuals. The big measurement does make it kind of arduous to fulfill individuals exterior the widespread areas or your room, however the huge bar downstairs (greatest night time is Monday) helps you to meet all of the individuals you see coming and going. I actually favored my time there and I particularly loved the excessive water stress within the showers and uncreaky beds.
The hostel is positioned simply subsequent to the Central Station so it’s simple to get to and from the airport. The one draw back is that it’s dearer than the cheaper choices in King’s Cross so that you may wish to “splash” out for this one as a result of it’s not low-cost!

Surf N Solar Hostel (Surfer’s Paradise, Gold Coast)
Positioned within the Gold Coast, you’ll get each surf and solar at this place. A transformed motel, this hostel has actually pleasant employees, a pool, a central location, and is true throughout from the seaside. All good issues. Plus they provide a free decide up from the bus station. The homeowners are these outdated backpackers who hand around in the hostel as soon as in awhile and are actually pleasant. One other plus: on the time I used to be there, it was the one hostel in Surfer’s Paradise that didn’t have mattress bugs. They usually have free drinks and BBQs for visitor too. I ended up staying an additional week there just because I used to be having such a superb time.
Bunk Brisbane (Brisbane, Queensland)
Bunk has superior services. They’ve a pool, sizzling tub, late night time bar, and an superior journey desk. They’ll additionally enable you to discover work too. Their kitchen is spacious, their beds are comfortable, and the dorm rooms are cleaned every day and have digital key entry. It’s one of the best place in Brisbane (particularly since Base took over Tinbillys!)
Kimberley Travellers Lodge (Broome)
This hostel is wonderful. They’ve an infinite pool, an enormous outside space, a huge kitchen, a terrific location near the seaside, and a small, cozy bar that you would be able to order nice meals from. Furthermore, when the warmth of Broome actually will get to you, there are hammocks to lie on. They provide shuttle service to well-known Cable Seaside without cost, and the hostel is an in depth stroll to city. What I actually love is the massive kitchen. Even throughout peak time cooking time, you may have loads of room to maneuver round. I hate cooking dinner in hostels as a result of there’s by no means house and also you’re all the time bumping into different individuals cooking. Not right here. I want all hostel kitchens had been this huge. Charges embody a continental breakfast every day and they’ll even prepare complimentary airport transfers!
Witch’s Hat (Perth)
The Witch’s Hat is positioned close to the principle social gathering space in Perth, Northbridge, in addition to close to many good eating places. The employees is absolutely pleasant and might actually enable you to with any journey bookings or associated questions. There’s a terrific kitchen and customary room right here, plus an outside BBQ space, comfy dorms, and a really social ambiance. In addition they arrange barbecues and occasions occasionally.
Aquarius Backpackers (Byron Bay)
I stayed at this place over Christmas and fell in love with it. They do such a superb job at getting individuals to speak to every and create a very pleasant ambiance. There’s a free meal each night time (small meal) and so they arrange an enormous BBQ lunch on Sundays. It’s near the seaside and the middle of city, and there’s free wifi by the pool. The dorms are cleaned usually however the beds received’t win any main awards.
Gilligan’s Backpacker Hostel and Resort (Cairns)
This big resort/hostel is the place you go if you wish to social gathering. The rooms are OK. They’ve aircon and the beds are comfortable however I used to be lower than impressed. However what I did love was the numerous state-of-the-art kitchens, free airport decide up, wifi, and swimming pool with an open deck bar and large outside pub screens! I had a variety of enjoyable right here. Perhaps an excessive amount of. Arduous to recollect!
Nomads Noosa (Noosa)
A cool little hostel that’s solely 900 meters from the beech. All rooms are spacious and include their very own lavatory. There’s a pleasant tropical backyard, communal kitchen, bar, swimming pool and even a volleyball courtroom! It’s one of many chillest, laidback locations I stayed in and the employees was very useful and pleasant!
When in Australia, I extremely suggest you keep at these hostels. For me, a superb hostel has all concerning the facilities, employees, setting, and comfy beds. These hostels meet all these necessities (which is why they’re often all full so e book prematurely!)
