It is not hard to locate the backpacker as Bicheno is a small town. It was 2014 Winter, not a peak travel season for Tasmania. Apart from the main building, they have another house at the few streets away, and our room was located there. There was no one but just us enjoying the whole house, which originally should be...

Located in central Bicheno which makes walking to all attractions easy. The Shack very new. It seems very modern and the 2 bed accommodation was outstanding for cleanliness, price and amenities. Kitchen is very well equipped and a lounge as well! Car parking and security is top notch. Staff both friendly and very accommodating.

Bicheno Backpackers has the bet hostel rooms and common areas that we have stayed in! The 8 person rooms are better than the others as they're nice wood framed beds each with they're own privacy curtain. My girlfriend and I had end to end ones with a curtain we could open between them to basically have our own little area... More

I had a lovely stay at this place...surprisingly despite of one BIG glitch. I only needed a place to sleep for one night so it didn't make much sense to me to stay in more expensive hotels. So I booked a female only shared room at this backpacker which was confirmed by the owner, Annabelle. I specifically asked her for... More

Thanks for the updated review (I am sure you left us a similar, not so lengthy review in December?) Just to be clear on a couple of points, our hostel is treated for bed bugs annually and we are bed bug free. I think you will find that most accommodation places have strict check-out times for obvious reasons particularly in... More

My sister and I loved this little backpackers joint. It was warm, clean, and conveniently located near Freycinet National Park. There were a couple good places to eat nearby and the sunset was spectacular. The rooms looked like they had been recently renovated and the shared bathroom was a little older but clean. There were a few cons. Bring your... More

Hello and thanks for the review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Our budget twin option does include one room that is required to use the bathroom in an adjacent building a few metres away. This is clearly outlined on our website & we do remind customers upon check in so there are no surprises. The lower tariff for... More

Pretty standard hostel, adequate kitchen facilities, clean rooms the wifi was truly terrible so if you need a speedy connection, hang out outside the tourist information office and use theirs... toilets were usually out of toilet paper which is a pain in the middle of the night, showers were either freezing or burning. Well located for Freycinet.

Hi there and thanks for the review. Bicheno is not yet on the National Broadband Network which can make our free Wi-Fi service a little slow at peak times, something which is out of our control. Toilets in the bunkhouse are checked at 7pm each night to ensure there is enough toilet paper for the evening. We don't want anyone... More

We staying in the ensuite room which was separated from the main backpackers area. It was clean and comfortable and very close to the water and shops. The walls a thin and could hear others snoring and alarms going off. Easy 30min drive down to Freycinet National Park. We did have dinner at the Chinese restaurant next to the IGA... More

We stayed in a double room with ensuite in January 2015. The hostel is well located, spread over 2 sites (close together). It's fairly basic as you'd expect from a backpackers, but amenities are clean and you have access to all that you need. It's a great stepping stone to local attractions and the hostel itself has a lovely vibe.... More

I stayed here in November 2014, a solo female 24yo. traveller. I stayed in a four person dorm and found the beds very comfortable. You get your own little curtain to get your own space which is nice. There is a share kitchen which makes it nice and easy to meet people. The bathrooms were clean with plenty of hot... More
