Backpackers Central Hamilton is a pretty big hostel in a city centre. It has a nice location: just 10 min walking to a bus station, ISite, shopping malls and superstores. The botanical garden, the lake and the river are in a walking distance as well. As for the hostel itself,

I recently stayed at this hostel and it was an average experience. I stayed one of the dorm rooms downstairs (by which I mean underground). The hostel was maintained and cleaned regularly. With electronic key cards, security was good too. The dorm rooms and kitchen areas were

I highly recommend this place. If you get a private room with the shared bathroom, it’s cheap as heck and exactly what you need on a trip! A clean comfortable place to lay your head and very nice staff too.

it depends on availability. which date do you looking for? I think there are two options that we can accommodate your family. 1. a family room ensuite ( for 5 people including infant)@ $130/night + a quadruple room standard (for 4 people)@120/night = $250 / night 2. a private dorm room (8 beds room : 4 single beds and 2 double beds) @ $200 / night. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any further needs.

Thank-you for that, I think Pppoo hasn't got the write hostel. I am the 22 year old female manager. I suspect she was the one I had to evict due to her doing her dirty laundry in the kitchen sink. Hygiene is most important to us.
