I have travelled a fair bit and stayed in many hostels. I stayed here for 4 nights whilst travelling in WA with my mum. I loved all the helpful info this hostel had and there was a lovely verandah.

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.

Amazing place to stay, Ultra clean and tidy, with a home from home feel. Amenities are above and beyond other backpackers I have stayed at. All staff are fun and friendly with great local knowledge of the area and surrounding national parks. Pancakes for breakfast, free bike hire and internet add to the greatness of this hostel.

The location couldn't be better. The room was spacious and very clean, but the highlight was the fantastic staff. Thank you Paula, Chan, Claire and Vanessa for making my stay so pleasant. The Pancake was delicious Chan, Ta! Would have liked to take Sammy home with me! Would recommend this hostel to anyone.

It was a great place. Welcoming and full of community spirit. An experience that's easy to recommend if you're looking for a different kind of stay, with less social stiffness than a hotel. We went there as part of a road trip through the south. And I would recommend it to almost anyone.
