We spent almost 4 weeks at Bendigo Backpackers and felt right at home from the first day. It was amazing to be able to stay in a private room on a backpacker budget, a luxury! Michelle is a great and very nice as well as very professional manager - we felt like we could discuss anything with her and she... More

So clean, warm, friendly and central. I didn't get there in time for reception but it was all too easy. Text message with door code, inside to a lovely warm clean home away from home. I was lucky enough to have paid for a share room but had it all to myself.

This is the second time I have been here within a month and it is a really nice clean friendly place to go. Good facilities very close to town centre about a 5min walk. Why stay in a motel and meet no one stay at the backpackers and meet new people from all walks of life

What a awesome place to stay, clean, comfortable, had everything we needed in the kitchen, was able to walk to pictures and also the city centre. Was also able to walk to one of the basketball venues without driving. Met some wonderful families that where staying there as well, car was safe. Totally recommend this place to stay.

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
