Our clean and fresh rooms have a funky modern twist, with beds made prior to your arrival.

Our bathrooms are clean and newly renovated, while the original wooden floors of our house have been restored and are teamed with the original high ceilings.

We have a great small team of staff who are there to help in anyway they can so you can be sure to feel safe and receive friendly and helpful service. We're your home away from home!
Please note that reception is closed between 12pm and 5pm but you are welcome to enter the premise and make yourself comfortable (have a shower, drink a cup of tea etc.).

For the security of our guests, we only accept genuine backpackers/travellers carrying government-issued out of province drivers license or international ID and luggage/backpacks.

All guests must be over the age of 18 to stay here unless their parents or guardians accompany them.

Please, also note that we are not a late night party hostel so getting a good night sleep is never a problem.

So, if you are the kind of person who is looking for a home away from home, please check us out.

Looking forward to welcoming you at Wickham Retreat Backpackers.
