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.

Absolutely loved staying here. The staff is so friendly and the place is so cute. And the breakfast in the morning was fabulous. Only downside was that the bar downstairs was pretty loud our first night there. But the second night it was closed and we were so happy, we slept great! (Not sure if it was closed due to... More

I can't speak more highly enough of this backpackers. From the cleanliness of all the facilities, to the friendliness of the staff. It just feels like you are supposed to be there, so much so that I extended my stay. The morning pancakes are everything you need to start your day in Albany, and the everyone was really nice.

Really nice hostel, very clean with alot of facilities. The staff were very friendly and they even make pancakes every morning for free. The hostel is right in the centre of Albany which was great. Would definitely recommend to anyone :)

I have been visiting Albany off and on for the last few years and always stay at 1849 when I'm in the area. It's always great to see this place again and the way it keeps improving with all the new renovations and owners who want the business to do well. Great atmosphere and nice common areas to hang out.... More

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

Stayed a week in oct14. Staff repeatedly bungled my booking as they keep changing and don't understand English properly also its $1 more to pay by eftpos !. They weren't very nice either asking to pay, they jack the prices up to almost hotel prices at times. As soon as I booked out I was harassed by multiple staff members... More

Hello 'WaAussietraveller', we appreciate you writing us a review from your stay with us ... six months ago. 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

I have traveled to many places in Australia and this one is definitely in my top three of all hostels. 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! Lovely, welcoming staff who make you feel at home and are always happy to talk or help you or give you advice on the area. They also cook everyone free pancakes for breakfast! This is in addition to great facilities, like... More
