i arrived in this hostel thinking I would stay for about two weeks and then find a share house somewhere else. I stayed for nearly 4 months, made the best friends and cried my eyes out when I had to leave. This is not a hostel like any of them. This place is special. The owners and their dogs are... More

Back of chapel is so cozy! I really liked it there. It`s so easy to get to know people, and the location is great. Really nice and helpful staff! Stayed there for a week, would loved to stay longer. The cleanliness could be better, but the good atmosphere makes up for it!

Overall I had a really nice stay at Back of Chapel. If I have to mention a bad thing; it's no good place to hang out there, the livingroom is ok and there's some chairs in front of the hostel plus a backyard with a long table and a grill, but I think it should be more space for just... More

The location of Back of Chapel is great. Just off very hip Chapel Street and a short walk to Windsor station where you can take the train into the city. The beds are good and the dorms we stayed in were a good size. The guests are a mix of long and short stay but has very good atmosphere. The... More

We ended up staying here for 6 nights whilst trying to sort a visa. Its out of town but accessible by bus, tram and train. Area is cool, lots of bars and little shops. Place itself isn't particularly welcoming, the young guy working here is cool but because there are loads of long term people Jere its a little like... More

My wife, 17 yr old son and I stayed for here for 5 nights and think it is great value. We had a triple room that did lack some cupboard space but the great beds and the food outlets in Chapel St were awesome. Transport is close and access to city was easy. Lots of young ones enjoy this hostel... More

A lovely hostel, I have stayed here a few times, and it is my first address to stay in the south of the city. A very warm and welcoming atmosphere, good prices and free breakfast ! What more to ask for? It's all pretty clean and I was amazed that it was possible for me to have a check in... More

A series of events led me to stay at Back of Chapel backpackers, it was more of a home than I had experienced in months. I felt welcome, happy and comfortable. It was central to everything and spoilt for choices to eat out. I made life long friends there and couldn't be more appreciative for the wonderful service. Great guys... More

Love this hostel tried a couple in Melbourne before I settled on this 1, good size kitchen and common room, comfy beds and clean. It's only small so it feels homely and get to know people real quick. The boys running the joint can be a bit hit and miss, na I'm only playing there good lads
