Dear Guest, The Bendigo Backpackers has a new owner/manager as of July 2014. My husband Scott is the only person who does late check ins. He is not the person who you are referring to in your post, as Reception at the Bendigo Backpackers closes at 8.00 pm. Does your review relate to past managers: was it this July (2015)... More

We booked in for one night with a family of four. There were bunkbeds for the kids which they were very excited about, and a large bed for my husband and I, in a good sized room with our own sink. The house was lovely, the rooms clean. It's a shared bathroom situation and these are clean with plenty of... More

Even though it was 60 per night for a double, we loved our stay here. Very clean and well equipped house and because it was small and this must have been an off season, it was very quiet and relaxing with only one or two other guests max. I would come here again

My partner and I stayed here for one night at the start of a trip from Melbourne through to the Western half of Australia. We booked over the phone a few weeks before arrival, and when we got there the new owner, having recently taken over the business, had no record of our booking. Fortunately she had availability as I... More

Stopped off at the Bendigo backpackers on the way from Adelaide to the snow. Booked later but was not a problem as the guy running the desk was very helpful. The location is perfect, in a very comfortable area with a easy walk into the city. Very reasonable price, rooms are basic and clean. Kitchen and bathroom facilities were good... More

I as planning to stay just one night on my way to Mildura, but I managed to get a dorm bed in a room to myself. I ended up staying for 3 days, because it was such a relaxing place to stay. So close to town and everything there was to see. Everyone was friendly and the place was clean,... More

What a great choice of accommodation my friend suggested, clean and providing all the amenities you require. Wonderfully located in the CBD. A comfortable bed and the dorms are spacious enough for me to spread out my things as I get organised each day. The staff are friendly and helpful, The kitchen is big and there is plenty of bench...

After hobbling to Bendigo Backpackers I was met by Graham who organised me a dorm for my self to rest up and get the heating on. It had a feel of home about the place and both common area and kitchen... More
