Our double was very small, and we had problems to get our two bags in. The room was clean, however. It was good that there were only two rooms sharing one bathroom, so no queue. Also that was very clean. The kitchen is located in another building. It was ok, but could get a bit crowded in the evenings with... More

I stayed here as part of a tour and could not believe how great the accommodation was! Spacious bedrooms, clean shower areas and a fantastic open plan living area was great! The location was nice and central, making it very easy to walk into town from here. Definitely recommend it!

Only stayed because no camping area, but it is very expensive for what it is. Not a typical backpackers, very nice and do recommend if you have the money to spare. It is clean and comfortable, rather luxurious after normal backpackers..

Susan advised us on places to visit around Bicheno which we acted on and visited. Beautiful places such as Mt Columba falls. Pub in the paddock. Holy cow cafe which were... More

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.

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
