The best and worst Backpacker-Hotels in Australia (East Coast)

We’ve stayed in planty of Hostels all over the eastcoast of Australia. Some have been great, some disgusting and some weren’t really memorable. We rate from 1* (really bad) to 6* (best). Just to remember: We are both 35 years old and have other interests/requirements than 18-25 year old Backpackers… We always had double rooms, which makes a difference too.
