If you're craving for a piece of Aussie culture, head down to Prince of Wales (POW) Backpacker Hostel. It's not only a lodge for young backpackers but a pub that's typically Aussie. Live bands, imported Australian beer and other international beers like San Miguel, Hoegaarden and Boddington's on tap are just some entertainments features adopted from the land down under.


Little India is an ideal location for a place like POW; it's easily accessible, near the city, and a great place for food (24 hours). And who can forget the barby! BBQ facilities are available at the Beer Garden so chill-out with friends on picnic tables with a pint of Boddington's and watch a game of Aussie Rules. You'll feel right at home mate!


A hot spot among locals as well, POW Pub is popular for its live band performances and trendy crowd. If you're a fan of alternative music, this is the right place for you. Put up with the music and parties if not, check out and relocate.


Accommodation is cheap and fashionably decked. Set in retro style, this hostel is similar to those in Australia with a geographical twist to it. I'd visit this place just to have some good fun. Imagine! - Staying here would be the highlight of your vacation.


Facilities: Free breakfast, BBQ facilities and pool table.
Price: AUD$10 (Dorm) to AUD$35 (Room)
