I came to stay one night and I ended up extending every morning. Enjoyed the great, family-like atmosphere. Free parking & WIFI, walking distance to the city and markets... And delicious pancakes every morning! What else can you ask for? Enjoy your stay at this hostel. It is a great spot to settle down for a while and to discover... More

But, we are very confused, as it is contrary to every comment we've ever had in the 5 years since we opened. We are not sure why you stayed for a week and didn't bring any of these issues to our attention... More

The location is central, the owners offer a very friendly, helpful, personal and professional service and the facilities are clean. The pancakes in the morning are delicious, the cats are cute and I would come back anytime when I am... More

What a wonderful review, thank you for taking the time to write this and to let us and other travellers know about your experience at 1849. The points you make we are particularly proud of, because from a personal point of view I never liked hostels while travelling. I found most to be unfriendly, money grabbing, very dirty and unkempt.... More

Myself and two friends stayed at 1849 backpackers over Easter weekend. Truly epitomised what a hostel experience should be!

This is in addition to great facilities, like... More
