I had high hopes for this place after reading the reviews, but was first of all put off by the fact that somehow they had lost my reservation. Luckily there was availability and I was put in a room with two of their staff. They were rude and unfriendly so I requested to be placed in the four bed room... More

I was travelling alone and found 1849 Backpackers in the lonely planet guide. The hostel is wonderful, staff is extremely friendly and helpful and there is always someone sitting outside to talk to. Kitchen is clean and the pancakes Danny makes for breakfast are fantastic! Lounge room is good for being hungover and there's a parking lot for everyone with... More

Average hostel. Quite spacious. In an older building (classic design) so tall ceilings huge windows and wooden floor boards. Quite a nice place and big bathrooms and a heck of a lot of corridors. I stayed during the weekend, and WOW it’s so loud at night, just because the building is shared with a downstairs bar and café. Actually it’s... More

Kevin booked my friends and I into a 4 bed room at last minute when we couldn't find accommodation anywhere in town and what a lucky find. This place is immaculately kept one of the cleanest hostels I've stayed in and I travel a fair bit :) Highly recommend this place as a cheap stay in albany. Thanks again lad!!!

This backpackers was a pleasant surprise. For the price I was happy to put up with almost anything, but what my partner and I got was a lot more than we bargained for! Beautifully, well kept garden and outdoor seating area; comfortable kitchen; enormous activities area with table tennis and musical instruments. AND due to only booking a few days... More

As we leave here after 3 days it feels like we're saying bye bye to family. We've had the best time here at 1849 - we're travelling with our two children and they have had such fun playing with Sam the dog and being allowed to 'help' in the office and the kitchen. Everyone here is so friendly and there's... More

Rooms and beds were cleaned weekly, bathrooms and kitchen cleaned daily, very clean and tidy hostel. No noise all night, noise curfew at 10pm, 11pm on weekends, if you want to party there is a pub and a... More

This hostel is an excellent hub for travelers from near and far and the pancakes are really really really good! I have stayed at this hostel more times that I can remember over the past 4.5 years, pretty much since it opened. The owners, managers and staff have worked so hard to restore this old building to the comfortable, clean... More
