We felt welcome at Budget Backpackers. Staff is very helpful and it's very well located in the centre, close to everything. Our twin room was big, clean and colourful. Beds are a little noisy and mattresses very soft but we slept well. Bed sheets are included. Bathrooms are well organised and clean (men, women or mixed) We had our own sink in the room. Breakfast is not included but very cheap it is served in the large funny bar/common room. There are also vending machines et sandwiches available.
The place is a little noisy at night with people playing guitar and singing but it's a hostel! Wifi is available in the common room. Cars can not be parked in the streets nearby but Waverley stations offers overnight parking for a good price.
