Only had a short stay here but it was fantastic. The staff, especially Cayleigh and the American girl (Corrine?), made you feel really welcome. Wish I could have stayed longer. The free trips and activities were great! Pick up and drop off included, the pick up even takes you to a lookout near the hostel. Nothing to complain about!!

We were surprised how big this hostel was as it doesn't look it from the outside. First impressions are really good. Large communal areas with open plan living and kitchen. Plenty of space to sit outside also one side with hammocks and sun loungers. The lady who checked us in was very nice and informative about everything you needed to... More

We stayed at Aussitel Backpackers for two weeks and we could not recommend the place more!! We have never felt more at home at a hostel and Jamie and Kayleigh did absolutely everything to make us feel welcome, even upgrading our room for us. You get 500mb of free wifi every day which is more than enough to Skype home... More

I came to Aussitel Backpackers as a stopover on my way up the East Coast. I originally planned to only stay 2 nights but due to the welcoming staff, clean facilities and great atmosphere I extended my stay to a week. The people on reception ensured that I was included in all activities planned; both day and night which allowed... More

This hostel is very much for backpackers doing their regional work for their second year visa. There's a great atmosphere as they all know each other, but can be difficult to get involved at times. Jamie and Kayleigh try their best to make you feel welcome and involved which does make it better. But at the end of day the... More
