Welcome to Griffith working hostels

Griffith Working Hostels is a family-run business in the Riverina servicing both backpackers and local farmers and producers since 2005. We currently operate two separate and very different properties, all of which provide budget accommodation to international travellers. The key element of our service is matching motivated itinerant workers to seasonal work vacancies all year round. We place an emphasis on working hard and encourage a quiet and tranquil atmosphere in the hostels to relax after work.

Griffith NSW is located in the heart of the Riverina, some 650km west of Sydney and 500km north of Melbourne. Seasonal work in Griffith qualifies for the second year extension of the Working Holiday Visa (subclass 417).

IMPORTANT:  Our beds are only available for booking 2 weeks in advance.  When booking please only book for one week at a time.  Your booking will automatically extend upon check-in.  Payment for the entire booking will be taken from the provided credit card prior to confirmation. All cancellations will incur a 100% charge of the entire booking.
