Backpacker Working Hostel

Securing a job through a working hostel can have its benefits, such as accommodation being secured as well, however more often than not you are paying a lot in rent for accommodation with very few amenities whilst being crammed in a room full of bunk beds. But until The 88th Day came along it was the most viable option and it’s always very social as there’s a lot of backpackers all doing the same.

Otherwise if you have a bigger budget then private rental is a possibility through either lease agreements (6 months minimum) or Airbnb, but expect to pay quite a bit more!

The other end of the spectrum is finding a local campground to pitch a tent, or if you’re travelling in style then a campervan or converted mini van will do the trick! If this is the case find a local gym to join and make use of the showers when you can to maintain a relative degree of hygiene.

Obviously we are biased but we believe The 88th Day is your best bet with regards to finding accommodation and South Australia is a fantastic place to complete your days.
