The beds, kitchens... More

This was my third time staying at 1849 Backpackers, and it was amazing (as usual). I would recommend this place because of its location, friendly staff, services (such as WiFi, lounge, free breakfast) and overall cleanliness. Can't wait to come again.

Wonderful, relaxing stay with friendly, helpful staff, and delicious free pan cakes for breakfast. We didn't want to leave and will come to stay again next time we are in Albany. We also enjoyed spending time with the two cats that live there.

This is by far (very far) the best hostel I've stayed in during my travels in Australia! I've stayed there for 3 month and it was the best decision ever! I tell you why... First of all: FREE (!!!), fresh pancakes for breakfast, prepared right in front your eyes which taste heavenly (I miss them a lot). The atmosphere is... More

We only stayed for one night, but we could easily see ourselves spent much more time in that hostel. Not too big, not too small, great atmosphere, clean with everything you need and more. And the pancakes in the morning are plentiful and great!

Great central location, friendly staff, clean amenities and good rooms. Stayed here after walking on the Bibbulmun track from Walpole, just an overnight stay but the history of the building and its design brings a great vibe. Will stay here when back in Albany next.

I stayed at 1849 backpackers as part of a tour 3 day/ 2 night from Perth down into the South West. Because I hadn't had to even think about where we were staying our first night I had no idea of where we were staying in Albany. I don't think we could have ended up anywhere better! It was immediately... More

Was nice and comfortable. Will stay again if I go to albany. Nice pancakes with good quality bedding. Good location and facilities. Care takers are welcoming and respectful. Would recommend staying atleast two nights so you can cover a bit of albany.

Facilities are nice, atmosphere is great and the rooms are nice and clean. Wifi is good and those free pancakes in the morning...well, worth staying just for that. Highly recommended as hostel. It's definitely up there with the top ones in the country.
