      Backpackers by the bay has been one of the best experiences of my life, I made so many friends here that I will always stay in contact with, guests and staff alike. It feels like a little family away from home. I highly recommend to all.

    • Pretty Good

      Small Lockers in room, really small room with other people's stuff all over the place. No gaurd rails for top bunk beds a bit of a walk to the main area but right next to the Greyhound and Permir Bus stops. Probably would stay again

      Having travelled the whole east coast, Backpackers By The Bay is the cream of the crop. This hostel offers comfortable living, a family feel and endless laughs. The uniquely witty Martha and Sam (whos a hero in her own right) behind reception were warm and welcoming which kicked off my stay fantastically. The whole hostel was sparkling thanks to Molly and Liv, whos jokes and laughter brightened even the gloomiest of days. Theres nothing more I couldve asked for. I arrived a stranger and left a friend. Cant recommend enough :)

      This hostel has the potential to be really nice if they put some work into it. There were bugs everywhere in the kitchen. All over the walls, the surfaces, the draws. I wanted to use a utensil to stir my pasta and went into the draw and there was bugs crawling all over the utensils in the draw. I couldnt leave any food on the side in fear of bugs going all over it. Cut up some tomatoes while waiting for pasta to cook and I constantly had to watch my plate to make sure none were going onto them. i didnt cook my own tea the next night as I didnt want to cook in that kitchen, instead I had to eat out which really isnt what I want to do as a traveller on a tight budget! Paid $6 to leave my bag in storage while I did the Whitsundays, came back and found the same types of bugs crawling all over my bag!! Not sure what these bugs are but they were small, like fleas except they didnt jump. Not a pleasant experience. Bathroom was dirty and you definitely would need to wear flip flops in the shower to at least feel a tiny bit clean. I spent 2 nights at this hostel and 1 night in base hostel which was the same price if not cheaper, base was 100 times better and I wish I had stayed there the whole time. Only good thing about this hostel is the WiFi is quite fast

    • It was a Pleasure staying here
