Are you looking for cheap accommodation because you want money left over to hit the nightstrip? Located in the heart of the city, Backpackers Newcastle and Guesthouse is a stone’s throw from the many bars, restaurants and nightspots that make this area so popular. If you’re staying for the weekend we suggest you head to Beaumont Street otherwise known as eat street for a nice restaurant feed before a night on the town.

If you’re feeling a bit rusty from the night before, you can always head to the hammock area and fall in and out of consciousness all day. If it’s hot, spend the day tanning and relaxing by the pool or if you want to get out and about you can always take a trip through the CBD and visit the famous Newcastle Ocean Baths. Regardless of what you feel like doing in Newcastle, make sure Backpackers Newcastle and Guesthouse is your base if you want a cheap yet comfortable place to stay.
