I really enjoyed staying at the Bicheno Backpackers. The staff was friendly, the rooms were nice and clean. The shower and the toilets seemed clean too. The hostel has a good location as it is close to the shops, the penguin tour and the beach - and there was a beautiful view of Bicheno. There is a good atmosphere in... More

I stayed in a single room, which was clean and comfortable. The accommodation was a three-bedroom cabin with a shared bathroom. The bathroom was clean and fairly big, and the premise offers free wi-fi. The staff were friendly, and the hostel is close to shops and food. I highly recommend staying here, and would gladly stay here again myself.

This was overpriced for what we got. Upon entering the room, it smelled what I thought was a cat smell but then I went on a penguin tour and realised it smelled like penguins. It was raining when we were there so we were stuck inside with the penguin smell. The lady who served us was a bit curt so... More

This response is for this review and the one previous "Had a Private Room" The East Coast of Tasmania received an unusual & massive amount of rainfall this summer, to the point of damaging flooding. It is standard daily cleaning practice to leave windows and doors open as much as possible to allow the fresh air to circulate & sunshine... More

Very nice hostel. Three buildings with just a couple rooms. Each building would have its own nice kitchen. I had a single room (which actually contained a double bed and a bunk bed) with a great view and a patio. Very spacious for a hostel and all clean. Bathroom was clean too. I was a bit concerned at first that... More

Thanks for the positive review. We only wish you had come to us regarding the vomit smell which was not present when we cleaned that morning. We would have loved the chance to rectify the situation during your stay. Happy travels. More

I stayed in bicheno backpackers for one night in November, 2015. The cabin had a cozy, wintery, wooden loft feel to it, and the dorms were small but with good storage space. The bathroom was clean, but small (only 2 showers and 2 toilets for the whole cabin- with no less than 5 dorms in it). The mattress was very... More

Thanks for the review. Here are some truthful facts about our dormitory accommodation that sells for $28 per bed: 1. There are in fact 4 dormitories, 4 toilets and 4 showers in that particular building. 2. As advertised we supply a sheet, pillow case and doona. Many people travel with their own bedding and others request an extra sheet if... More

We booked a twin room for two. The room and the common toilet was clean. It is located right next to some of the eateries. It's also walking distance to the Bicheno Blowhole, or just 3mins drive. We also spotted some penguins at night, about 30mins drive from Bicheno! Kitchen was clean and provided the necessary cooking supplies.
