About Dickson Backpackers
Short and longer term stays (conditions apply) as well as groups are welcome and check in is available between 10.30 am until 10.30 pm. We ask you to provide an estimated time of arrival and contact number on your booking so we can make sure your room is ready and also that you let us know if you are running late. We can't hang on to beds, so if you don't call and let us know you are going to be late, we cannot guarantee your bed.
We are not party central but are located close enough for you to get there! Alcohol is restricted to no more than 2 alcoholic beverages on site and none after midnight and of course, no ilicit drugs. Thanks.
All rooms and interior parts of the hostel are non smoking and we do expect you to clean up after yourself properly.
Smokers and those wanting to sit outside can use the back deck and barbecue.
No curfew operates (except for kids under 18 who cannot be in common areas after 10 pm) and guests are issued with security swipes allowing 24 hours access through the front door. We deadlock the back door for security reasons at 10.30 pm so the hostel is fully secured from entry other than for registered guests via the front entrance.
Please contact us directly if you intend to bring young people (under 18) in your group . This is a hostel established for adults and special conditions will apply for persons under 18.
Dickson Backpackers has two dormitory types available (4 and 6 share) and the hostel sleeps a maximum of 80 people. Guests may elect to take a four berth room as a private single or twin, but charges in this instance will be based on three persons occupying the room. The hostel should be contacted directly if you want this option. We offer both short and longer term stay (conditions apply - contact us) and we provide clean bed linen on the bed on your arrival. Towels are available for hire, as is crockery and cutlery for use during your stay, or you can use your own. Rooms are reverse cycle air-conditioned (heating and cooling) between the hours of 8pm and 8 am. Not all dormitories have windows and preference for bed allocation in windowed dormitories is given to stays in excess of two days. All facilities are communal and whilst guests may access hot showers in bathrooms 24 hours per day, all cooking and clean up in the kitchen must be completed by 10 pm.
We are located at Level 1, 4-14 Woolley Street in Dickson, just a short bus ride from the city centre (6 minutes to travel 3.5 k north) and in the heart of the Dickson shopping and restaurant precinct. Facilities close by include the Dickson Shopping Centre which houses most major banks, travel agency, post office, public library (free internet), supermarket open till midnight daily, news agency, bakeries and cafes, the Dickson Aquatic Centre (open summer months only), gyms, medical centres,dentists, an Irish themed pub, another busy and popular bar and the Tradies Club (open until 4 am daily).
Dickson is located in a public transport hub, allowing short bus trips to most local attractions, trips to the city, ANU and parliamentary triangle, to Belconnen (AIS and University of Canberra ) and to Gungahlin (via Exhibition Park and out to Gold Creek and Cockington Green) .
