I arrived in Nuriootpa in the Barossa Valley and from there a quick connection got me to my destination in Tanunda. I expected the accommodation to be good based in the brochure I had seen while I was in Melbourne, and I was pleasantly surprised by just how good. It’s new, it’s clean, the kitchen is well stocked and the... More

Thank you Barossa Backpackers. You saved me big time I had 3 months to get my 88 day visa and I got it today no problems! I found the hostel with a Gum Tree ad which looked fine compared to other hostels I researched and reviewed. I came to the hostel by myself and met some fellow English guys who... More

I booked the family room for a week starting on a Tuesday in April. The room was coated in red bull dust. That night the itinerant backpackers partied on till 2-30am. No night manager and all the secured doors were left open. Calls to the security firm didn't help. Apparently curfew is broken most nights during vintage and then other... More

This was my first stay at a backpackers but we were very impressed and would definitely do it again. The backpackers is right on the property of a great winery (chateau tanunda) and right near town which was a great location. The manager and owner were really helpful and even offered to organise one of the other backpackers to take... More

The room also came equipt with a small heater, a bag holder, coat hook and and a storage unit which didnt lock. Our first nights stay at the hostel was pleasant.... More

Hi Angie, Thank you for your review of our hostel. We are very sorry about the unpleasant actions of our guest partying on Saturday night and disrupting your sleep. We hope you had a safe 12 drive back home. We unfortunately had to ask 3 people to leave the hostel as a result of the party and mess they created... More

Great Place! We stayed in Barossa Backpackers for 2 nights in a double room with shared bathroom. The showers and toilets were very clean as was the bedroom. This was of course basic, but cozy enough. The common rooms were lively and enjoyable. The hostel was right in the middle of vineyards and just a short stroll to Cellardoors and... More

Always helpful and smiling at reception, very strategic place near the supermarket,visitor center,cellar doors and bus stop, clean bathrooms, you'll meet a lot of friendly backpackers : one of them took me for free trip to some cellar doors... I went in this place twice before, and I've never been disappointed. The dormitories (6 beds) are a bit tiny and... More

Stayed here with the Mrs whilst ravelling around the barossa. Was a very last minute thing, and staff incredibly helpful. Comfortable warm beds, adequate food. Good location
