I am originally from Florida and I have stayed at a few backpackers along the way, with my travels. 1849 Backpackers has definitely been the most pleasant stay I have encountered. They honestly do everything they can to make your stay in Australia an enjoyable one. I think very highly of the owners and wish them the best in life.... More

What a unique experience staying at 1849. Beautiful friendly people who made my stay a delight. 2 cats that may or may not be your friend depending on the day. Danny and Zoe who cooked us wonderful crepes to start the day. After a few days I felt like family, thank you Paula and Danny for creating a lovely family... More

We are "senior citizens" (over 65) Aussie couple, travel extensively - usually stay in hostels or backpackers the world over. Booked into 1849, then I had to change dates because of a family crisis, Paula was so accommodating, and when we finally made our holiday she enquired about my old Mum's health (she'd remembered what I'd told her). We had... More

I loved my time at 1849 backpackers. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was funky and unique. I especially enjoyed the free pancake breakfasts in the morning and the small soccer field. The location was also really good and central. The only drawback was that wifi was only available outside of the bedroom.

Danny and Paula have created a community/family out of long term and short term stayers. Pancakes for breakfast, low cost gourmet dinners, cats and friendly, respectful young and old. We would like to move in we liked it so much.

Aye aye 1849! I absolutely love this place. I've stayed a first time..then left..and then came back for an even longer time. I truly don't know how to describe 1849backpackers.

Comfy beds, free car park, polite & courteous staff. Quiet, central location and 5 mins walk away from the beach and Anzac Park. Free pancakes too! :-) When we turned up it was movie night and they had a projector set up and all the people staying could get together and watch it which was a nice touch. I would... More

I stayed here on three separate nights - have stayed at a few backpackers and this one is defiantly up there. Clean facilities, friendly helpful staff, nice communal spaces and FREE PANCAKES :D Was a bit loud on one of the nights I stayed there but didn't keep me up too long :) Great location - close to everything!
