Property Information:

With modern well equippped shared kitchen and bathroom facilities, Dickson Backpackers is clean and quiet and has warm, welcoming and helpful staff. Public transport is only a couple of minutes walk away. Dickson Backpackers allows guests over 18 years of age to take a breath, to shop a short stroll away at the local shopping precinct at Dickson where the supermarket is open until midnight or to stroll through Chinatown for a fabulous range of international restaurants, pubs and bars.

There is also off street paid parking it is available adjacent to the hostel.

Short and longer term stays (conditions apply) as well as groups are welcome and check in is available between 10.30 am until 10.30 pm. We ask you to provide an estimated time of arrival and contact number on your booking so we can make sure your room is ready and also that you let us know if you are running late. We can't hang on to beds, so if you don't call and let us know you are going to be late, we cannot guarantee your bed.

We are not party central but are located close enough for you to get there! Alcohol is restricted to no more than 2 alcoholic beverages on site and none after midnight and of course, no ilicit drugs. Thanks.
All rooms and interior parts of the hostel are non smoking and we do expect you to clean up after yourself properly.

Smokers and those wanting to sit outside can use the back deck and barbecue.
No curfew operates (except for kids under 18 who cannot be in common areas after 10 pm) and guests are issued with security swipes allowing 24 hours access through the front door. We deadlock the back door for security reasons at 10.30 pm so the hostel is fully secured from entry other than for registered guests via the front entrance.

Please contact us directly if you intend to bring young people (under 18) in your group . This is a hostel established for adults and special conditions will apply for persons under 18.
