The Entrance Backpackers
Reviewed May 3, 2013

It's well situated, clean, light, bright and air conditioned. The kitchen is clean, as new and there is all kinds of kitchenware. You can easily save money cooking all your meals with an excellent Coles store around 100m away. The $10 meals at the hotel across the road are excellent. The bus stop is outside Coles and it is easy to get to Gosford and Woy Woy. A free, very basic, no choice breakfast. Wifi is not expensive and there is a lot of dvds available. Need to arrive within designated times. Need to plan to do reasonably charged onsite laundry.

It's well situated, clean and air conditionned. The kitchen is clean and there is all kind of kitchenware. Wifi is not expensive and there is a lot of dvds available.

But you can be moved from a room to another and the staff is not always available, diseapearing during service hours sometime.

Our winning sevens rugby team from Fiji stayed at The Entrance Backpackers and we were very happy with everything provided. The place is very clean, has great facilities and the location couldn't be better being right in the heart of the main street. The staff were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. These people know how to run a first class place. Highly recommended and we'll be staying here again next year when we return to defend the Central Coast Sevens title.
