But now in order to enjoy all these things, lets save up some money by staying at backpacker hostels. here are top 5 backpacker hostels in Australia :
1 .Blue Mountains Backpacker Hostel:
Very clean hostel, staff are very friendly, blankets and towels provided. Comfortable foam mattresses and pillows. Common areas are large with plenty of seating, fireplaces, pool and Foosball tables, books and board-games. Kitchen facilities are large and extensive. Laundry is free and you can do large loads. The rooms are cold in the winter but heaters are provided. Overall a great place to stay in a beautiful town. The stay costs Rs. 2800 approximately for a person per night.
2. Port Macquarie YHA – Ozzie Pozzie Backpackers:
Rooms are clean and tidy and has great entertainment stuff like pool, air hockey, table football and ping pong that you haven’t got to pay for, like in most hostels. The little cinema room is awesome too. Approximately Rs. 3500 for a person per night.
3. Rockhampton YHA:
A great little place, very quiet despite being just a street or two back from the busy road headed north east out of Rockhampton in the delightfully-named suburb of Berserker. Very cheap hostel rooms, very reasonably-priced double rooms with bathroom, a great kitchen/common area, and separate TV room with comfy, snoozable couches. A short walk up the road to the local Woolies plus chemist and other shops, and not much more to the full Stockland Shopping Mall in North Rockhampton. To the west and not too far away are the expansive Botanical Gardens, and it’s just a short stroll back south to the city. There’s free WiFi out the front near the office by the pool table. Approximately Rs. 3400 for a person per night.
4. Aussieway Backpackers:
Cosy backpackers. It’s like living in a home with many flat mates. Friendly staff and there is need to book in advance. Definitely recommend this place in Brisbane. Approximately Rs. 3400 for a person per night.
