I have stayed here twice, both as part of a tour group and returning with by girlfriend and brother. The accommodation in the dorms when I was on the tour was good, and even better when I returned when we were put in the newer building just one block away. This was great facilities, they had kindly put on the... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a positive review. We speak to so many happy customers but unfortunately it is usually the ones with a bad experience who choose to write the reviews! We are glad we chose to upgrade one of your party from a dorm bed to a private room so that you could all be in... More

We stayed in ‘The Shack’, the separate outbuilding on Foster Street in June / winter. There was only a very small electric heater in our room that by no means raised the temperature to warm. We shared one single shower with two other three bed rooms (nine people) and after three people had showered in the morning, there was absolutely... More

Thanks for taking the time to review The Shack and provide Bicheno Backpackers with its first terrible review. In response to your review. 1. At no time were there 9 people staying in the building throughout June. 2. There are in fact 2 bathrooms that share 3 bedrooms in the main part of the house and a further 2 bathrooms... More

Stayed here for one night with my partner. The accommodation was clean, the place was quiet, the shower was excellent, and the kitchen was well equipped. Definitely not a place for partying, which I appreciated. Overall a nice, basic place to stay. Would recommend to anyone wanting a peaceful, clean, safe place.

Stayed here for a night. The dorm feels very nice and cozy. The toilets are very clean and good. The only concern I have while staying here is the limited socket that I could use to charge my gadgets in the room.

“Bad Customer” In an amicable conversation following your unauthorised entry to our Ensuite room that retails at $90 per night, we both admitted misunderstanding over a long standing booking and came to an agreement without tone or aggression. We discussed that if you were not happy with the room, a visit or phone call to reception would have avoided this... More

But otherwise it... More

We had a twin room at The Shack, the new part away from the hostel itself. It was all new, super clean, big kitchen, big living room with large tv. We paid $ 65 (55 for the room for 1 person plus 1 person extra) and expected something really really small, and we were pleasantly surprised. Close to everything (there... More

We were 3 friends and booked a 4bed dorm. Bicheno being a small town, it was easy to find the hostel. It is walking distance from the main market with many food options available (do try the takeaway place!!). We stayed in the new building down the road from the main backpackers building. I have to say it was like... More

Great layout to the dorm rooms, with loads of storage space and curtained-off bunks, making it feel spacious. Good kitchen/lounge area, although the staff seemed to have the radio on all the time, even when people were watching TV, so it could be a little noisy. Some outside space to relax in too. Good stop-off point if you're travelling up... More

I initially booked two nights stay here, but liked it so much I stayed for over a week. The beds were the most comfortable and the curtains for each bed made it easy to have a good night sleep. Very clean, lovely kitchen/dining area and plenty of space. Great location, right by the beach, shops and places to eat. Had... More
