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.

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

Before I start to write, kind reminder to those who are visiting Bicheno: make sure u make bookings ahead before you actually visit Bicheno because some of the hostels are good and popular and to avoid any disappointment upon arrival, make bookings before travelling. (I was in Bicheno in Feb 2014 and I did not make bookings ahead, that was... More

This is set in a great location just minutes walk from the shops and restaurants. The rooms were basic but very comfy and extremely quiet despite the number of people staying. The shower facilities were great and free parking and wifi a massive plus!

This is a good cheap hostel in a lovely little town. I paid $56 for my own room. Had a very nice meal at the local pub down the road looking out over the ocean. The staff were really helpful. I recommend it.

The hostel is excellent value for money, very homely, clean, has good facilities, hot water and the most comfortable bed I've had in any Tasmanian Hostel. The beds are also very private with a curtain to cocoon you off for the night should you be so inclined. This would have had a five star, had it not been for the... More
