Great stay

We stayed for one night on our way to Charlotte Pass to do the Main Range Track. It was low season so noise wasn’t an issue (in fact, our group were probably the ones making the noise). Kitchen was well equipped, rooms tidy/clean, beds comfortable and location couldn’t get any better. The lady I spoke with on the phone was really nice and even though we cancelled one of the room with very late notice, she was happy to apply the deposit for that room to the balance for the other rooms we had booked! Score! Thanks!

Great little hostel!

I visited here in March, so it was the off season in town and everything was very quiet with a lot of places closed. I came here for a two day hiking trip. The hostel itself was very quiet with only 3 or 4 of us staying there. Owner/manager was really helpful, took my payment over the phone, arrived and got my key from the key box, so easy, no hassles! Parking directly outside the back of the hostel. Great location and good hostel facilities.

Only gripe was the lights in the female bathroom only stay on for a couple of minutes, so ended up having to finish my shower in the pitch black! This definitely needs sorting asap before the winter season starts!! Other than that, awesome little hostel 🙂

Clean, spacious, bright and convenient

It is so clean, spacious, bright and convenient to everywhere in Jindy. Much better than expected.

I stay here pretty much every time I ride Perisher because its cheap.

Its dormitory style accommodation, its usually pretty clean (although its always going to smell like ski boots, its a hostel near a ski-field, but you sort of expect that), and centrally located in Jindabyne, as well as being the best value accommodation I’ve found.

The hotplates in the kitchen are a bit of a hit and miss affair, depending on your neighbours, the place can get a bit rowdy, and the hot water runs out reasonably quickly, so shower as soon as you get home from the hill. That said, as the title says, I stay here every time I ride, and like it.


Best value in town

The Snowy mountain backpackers is located very close to all the shops, food and bars. There are plenty of snowboard shops and hire places around. The room itself is very basic as you would expect for an 8 bed dorm. The bed is comfortable. The rooms do need better ventilation (currently only have one operating window) The kitchen facilities are standard for this type of accommodation. Plenty of parking around. Staff are friendly and helpful. Another good stay. I will be back again.

Room Tip: ask for one with a balcony.

2 Nights between Xmas and New Year, Quiet, Clean and friendly

Our 5 person family shared a downstairs family room with our own bathroom, and made use of the shared kitchen and seating area upstairs. The whole place was clean and well run. The owner was friendly and helpful. It was not full while we were there.
