Bamboo Backpackers from the first appearance wasn't very highly rated by myself. Entrance was dark, the place looked a little dated but within an hour of been there, I felt like I was at home. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. I stayed in a 4 dorm room that had room to store

Hi Hatti, thank you so much for coming to stay here at Bambu. We're glad that you felt right at home here at this hostel, you and your friend were just so lovely to have around. We have stopped the shuttle bus deal now, and we're now recommending people 'the shuttle bus trip' to the airport, thank you for the suggestion. We always appreciate a review like this, as we are currently going through some changes here at Bambu, and we need all the feedback we can get, so thank you for spending the time, writing this review, and rating our hostel. Have an amazing rest of your journey here in Australia, Marcus, Bambu Backpackers :)

Valentina congratulations on becoming probably the most unpleasant guest of the year . You and your partner were waited on hand and foot , you arrived late at 2am" after arguing with you partner outside the hostel causing a seen before entering the hostel, you then proceeded to take your argument into the dorm room until other guest told you to be quiet . And the next day the dramas continued until you were told you couldn't stay . And now this review shame . I wish you well on the rest of your journey

The location of this backpackers is great, right in the heart of it all. The staff were wonderful and very accommodating, particularly the strawberry blonde girl. She went out of her way to really help us out. There is good wifi. There are spaces for socialising, listening to

"Just run away !!!"
"girls only rooms if you are one, boys seem to leave there stuff everywhere on the floor so there is no space for your own."
"i stayed in room 4 excellent clean but all the rooms are excellent"
"coathangers, air freshener (using timer, same for bathrooms) , recycling!!! "
"All the rooms are pretty much the same, there are two girls only dorms and the rest are mixed. All of them are 8 beds with a few that have doubles on the bottom bunks."
