Alright facilities. Staff were nice. Facilities were decent. Location wasn't great, bit of a walk from the city.


I absolutely love this hostel. The location is not on queens st. Which I love. But is not far from queens st., a countdown and about 15 mins to the ferry terminal. It is not a big hostel but homey and has character. The lockers are even secured with a personal code. Staff is always very helpful and smiley. The hostel is clean and I really like the facilities - laundry, big tv, free WiFi, coffee, tea, rice and fruit in the kitchen. It doesn't have a bar but common area is really nice

When I was staying there on very first day, hostel has wrong directions - showing Quens St what was a lie/mistake. Moreover when I was leaving 6am, reception was closed, even though it said about 24h reception and I wasn't able to check out :/


This place was new the kitchen was Amazing a good location.


it,s new as in all the equipment so yes you will find sharp knives in the kitchen, and the showers are more accomadating for taller people, also the lockers in the room are good no need for your own lock, beds were very comfy and able to fit tall people to. free internet is slow and sometimes disconnects


The beds here are amazing. Never have i slept so good in a hostel as in Station Backpackers. The kitchen and the ''living'' room were great too. 10/10 for the manager of the hostel, most friendly man i ever met.

Really cool style communal areas, free security lockers, decent location. Everything was nice and new and clean. Most importantly the manager was super nice and helpful! Would definitely stay again
