4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

We stayed in Chill Backpackers in January 2012.

We stayed in a double room, the price was $56 for the room. Ridiculously expensive for what you get!

The room is clean but the bed was not at all comfortable. It broke my back!

There is air con in the rooms but it cut the throat off us.

The kitchen is alright, but needs more fridges and utensils. From 7-9pm it is a mad-house.

The movie room was cool, but never seemed to play what was advertised. The staff just go on the beer and forget about it!?

Computers are ok and dodgy. Its a matter of luck! The internet is $3 per hour. Printing 50c per page for 1st 5, 23c thereafter.

The parking is a bit of a joke. There is an car-park but you must leave your keys at reception. No need if you are in a secure spot. I did not like the thought of one of the staff moving my car without asking. If they damaged or scratched it there would be no responsibility taken.

The rooftop deck is nice.

Overall this is a nice hostel but overpriced.

Room Tip: Try and get a discount!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

The rooms were very compact and totally basic for the price. It was $35 a night, per person and there were 3 people in the room. That's $105 for a room with just 3 beds, no locker, no table, nothing!! We could barely fit 3 backpacks into the room too. Only 2 showers in total on our floor. On the upside the kitchen was lovely, loads of space in the chill out area with brilliant views of the city. A "cinema" for a tv room. Very spacious outside the rooms. Car spaces are first come first served but very secure. Very happy in general.

This was probably one of my favourite hostels overall on my travels! I ended up staying a lot longer than I intended! Great staff who are so friendly and helpful and always available when you need them. There is a huge roof top terrace with amazing views of the river and the city and they put on lots of free things like sausage sizzle night every week and free popcorn in their movie room on sunday afternoons. I've never see such a clean hostel either, the bathrooms are spotless and there are hairdryers which are free to use in the girls bathroom which was a massive bonus! Really enjoyed my stay, could not fault Chill backpackers!

stayed in a double bed made of metal where your middle is about 5 inches higher than your pillow, got no sleep as walls are paper thin and there is constant coming and going. had to check out, no refund policy and really rude staff who wouldnt help at all when complained about noise, NO CUPS DISHES OR CUTELRY or fridge space in the TINY kitchen. nice roof top but nothing else . warm showers

Room Tip: not the 3rd floor !
