I stayed here for 3 months Jan- April working in a potato factory which the hostel organised for me and it was an amazing experience! I never planned on staying in the Barossa for that long and I made some of the best friends on my whole trip in Australia (including Edward personal joke). Hostel is cleaned Daily thanks Debbie!...

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

We stayed in the hostel for two nights over the weekend. We booked a private double room which came with a double bed and a single bunk on top. 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

I stayed in a private with my Girlfriend and the room had it's own small heater, which we didn't really even need because the blankets were nice and warm. Was a bit annoying that check-in was only 9-12 and 5-9 we arrived around 3pm. Overall a good nights sleep though. We didn't really use any kitchen facilities at all.

I travelled heard in 3rd May for 2 days with my wife and 1 year old daughter and found the place very relaxed and child freindly. The staff were freindly and very helpful recommending wineries and resturants. Toliet facilties are shared but female toilets were big enough to change nappies. Value for money and worth every cent
