** Only people over 18 years of age may stay at Caledonian Backpackers. ** Please ensure you bring photographic identification to check in, such as a passport or drivers license. We are easy to get to, and you can check in anytime. If your bed isn't ready, then you can leave your luggage in our lockup and use the hostel facilities. Our receptionists are there 24 hours a day, and will help you with anything you need, from booking tours to sightseeing ideas. Internet access is very important these days, so we have made sure we have a super fast connection, which is available throughout the hostel , even in your bed. It is free to use, and if you need one we have have laptops available as well as other computers located around the place you can jump on, all at no charge. Breakfast is always a nice thing to have before you start your day, so we provide a simple all you can eat breakfast each morning. By simple, we mean cereal (Corn Flakes, Weetabix, muesli), Toast (jams, Vegemite, chocolate spread), Coffee (filtered), Tea and an orange drink. Sorry we do not do a cooked breakfast, however you can get one at Wannaburger just next door. And at the end of your day you want to relax and meet friends. Our bar is just the place, with 2 pool tables, a Wii console and board games. There are couches to relax and the drinks are cheap. Next to the bar is our Cucumber room, where you can sit and watch the world go by or read a book with beautiful castle views. Otherwise you can enjoy our Beanbag Cinema where you can choose from over 100 movies. For dinner, you can eat out at one of the many restaurants and pubs around us, or you can bring your food back and eat it in the bar, or order it in. Alternatively, we have a full kitchen available, and the supermarket is around the corner, so you can cook for yourself. We also have a coin operated laundry, so you can do your washing while uploading your photos on our fast internet. Backpacker style.
