“Great relaxed hostel”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

My and my buddy arrived in Mildura in desperate need for work. John did his best and delivered for us. He is the man to know in Mildura. The hostel is a great environment to come back to after a hard days work . Great rooms (mostly 2 or 3 per room) for you own privacy . Great kitchens , Great outdoor lounge area with Table Tennis table . 2 BBQs to use as well. I have nothing bad to say about MIB. Wish I could have stayed longer. Thanks John

Room Tip: The rooms in the main buidling farther away from the outdoor common area will let you have a better...

I stayed in mildura international backpackers for nearly 8 month, I have been travelling for over 20 months now and have obviously stayed in a lot of hostels and can without a doubt say it's been the best I have stayed in. I met so many amazing people, I loved the fun we had. The hostel has daily cleaners, so it's very clean and tidy. The rooms are great and most of all the hostel owner John is a total legend, works his bum off to find everyone work and is a genuine great guy! He even cooks a mean free BBQ every Sunday!
I love and miss MIB (mildura international backpackers)!!!

Went to do my farm work and found this place. John the owner is very honest when you ring up - if he doesn't have any work he will tell you (unlike some other working hostel owners who will promise you work when they don't have it)

The place itself is a great place to do your farm work. John works very hard to find everyone work and usually suceeds. The hostel has a good tv room with FoxTel and 2 kitchens so it is never too busy at one time. There are also 4 or 5 different bathrooms so again you never have to wait too long. The hostel is kept very clean; with a cleaner coming in every weekday to mop. The rooms are mainly 2 people in each which works out well and there is a good space outside for socialising.

2 massive bonuses are a free bbq/meal every sunday and a monthly table tennis competition. The winner of the table tennis wins a week free rent and there are also some runner up prizes as well.

In conclusion this is one of the best places to do your rural work - having spoken to other people about their experiences none seemed to enjoy it quite so much as I did in Mildura!

Room Tip: Rooms in the far block are quieter

Stayed for 1 nights as a stop over to Broken Hill. It´s a big place and seems to be popular with long-term stayed for backpackers working in Mildura (fruit-picking, etc). We had twin room next to the outside patio. The room was ok but the bathrooms were dirty and old with broken tiles. We had a terrible night´s sleep (or lack of it) due to loud noise coming from a large number of people on the patio until about 2am.
Kitchen wasn´t very clean either.
Would never stay again.

I stayed at M.I.B for 7weeks all together, it was soo much fun.Every friday we'd all get drunk an go to the pub. Every sunday there was a free BBQ, the staff are every helpful and the rooms are every clean. I had made friends already from a previous stay in Red cliffs but I made many more friends from all over the world. I have work from the second week i was there and John always tried to keep everyone working. I would tell anyone to stay here over any other backpackers in Mildura!!!
