This backpacker is very central to almost all things to do in The Entrance. I felt very safe, continental breakfast was provided every morning and it is a clean and well maintained environment. Management is also very easy to get along with and very friendly. I would love to visit again!

Room Tip: My room at the end was quiet, away from the bathroom.

We have stayed in many Backpackers around the world. This is right up there among the top. The furniture and fittings are good quality, services including a free breakfast are good, and the Manager, Ronnie, was really friendly and helpful. Highly recommended. Dennis May 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.

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.
