I staid fews night in this hostel, the prices are cheap but the location is not the best and it is not always clean. The kitchen was full of cockroaches. For the rest you pay for what you get, don't expect a lot about comfort, it is still pretty decent though. Personal was friendly. I would recommend it only for... More

I visited in January and according to the pervious reviewer, management has changed. I hope that's true. I have stayed in countless hostels around the world and this is by far the worst. Unfortunately it was my boyfriends first hostel experience and what an experience it was. We saw cockroaches and mice in the kitchen alone (with others witnessing bedbugs)... More

I stayed here back in November when I first arrived in Australia. I'm actually making a point of writing a review now, months later, because it was hands down the worst hostel I've ever been to. Don't go here! Just don't! Myself and my friend ignored the reviews because if how cheap it was and that was a huge mistake.... More

Nice living room, annnnd that's it. In general really dirty in rooms, bathrooms, even outside. Cigarettes and plastic bags in the garden everywhere. Rooms are bad, noisy. Impossible to find a fork in the kitchen. And it's far from everything. Far from the CBD, far from supermarket, far from night club... No wifi in the room.

Without a doubt the worst hostel I've ever had the misfortune to stay in, and I've backpacked the length of africa! The overpowering smell of mouse wee/pet shop throughout the hostel should be your first indication of what's to come. The kitchen and bathrooms were a disgrace with no running water for a few hours and no reason for lack... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Planet Inn where you ''won't be lonely!''Our goal is to help you to "Dare to be Different" as you explore new experiences in our wonderful part of the world that we Australians call "The Lucky Country".We first began trading in 1996 with a backpackers hostel then called Redbackpackers, which in 2000 evolved into Club Red Backpackers. The evolution continued in 2004 as the hostel enjoyed a makeover and become Planet Inn Backpackers.This accommodation business can also arrange your employment, sightseeing and your activities and entertainment program.We pride ourselves on our staff's commitment to friendly and professional service, coupled with experience and local knowledge to help you make your visit "Down Under" a truly memorable experienceThe beauty of Planet Inn Backpackers is that we are an International Backpacker which mean that the people that are staying here are all overseas travellers who want to explore Oz just like yourself. We offer a 24 hour airport pickup service with any booking of seven days or more! ... more   less
