This Backpackers Hostel may well be the best Backpackers in Western Australia. The staff are fabulous, there are lots of places to sit relax and chill out. The location is superb just 50 from the main street. 50 mtrs from the best Gelato shop I have ever tasted. With car parking you will have no need to drive your car... More

Free pancakes in the morning!! All you can eat. Modern kitchen. Very tidy and well kept. Had a great time. Staff were awesome. Centre of town. Perfect location. They have a resident cat and dog and a gorgeous garden, ping pong tables and a mini soccer field outside.

What a great relaxed vibe this heritage hostel has. This juxtaposition of youth and ancestry works very well; friendly, hard working staff, grand spacious and clean rooms. Comfy beds with fresh linen, very clean bathroom, hot showers, great communal kitchen, quiet lounge area, ample out door areas. Resident pets and free freshly made breakfast pancakes each morning were a massive... More

My husband, teenage daughter and I had a great stay at 1849 Backpackers. It offers free pancakes(yummy), free bike hire, free computer and internet. The beds were clean and comfortable. The showers were clean and hot. The place had a very friendly, helpful atmosphere. It is located right in the centre of Albany and I would recommend staying there.
