This hostel was great, from the staff to the guest. I had a really great time here and if I'm ever over this way again I will definitely stay here! The staff were full of local knoladge and were always friendly and helpful!

Passing through and saw the place. Was great. Place was spacious. Had enough entertainment facilities like ping pong, has cats and rooms were plenty. Everyone is friendly. Foxtel and wifi worked well. Place was clean and the morning pancakes were amazing! I'm defiantly heading back the next time I come through WA

It was quiet because it was winter but even though I was only passing through for the weekend I felt so at home here. I was travelling on my own but everyone was really friendly and welcoming. The staff are awesome, the free pancakes for breakfast are a great idea! (and really delicious!). The building itself is beautiful, has everything... More

I stayed at this hostel for quite some time during my trip to Australia. It's one of those few places where you very quickly feel at home. Danny and Paula provide a really welcoming experience, making sure you start the day with delicious home made pancakes and end it with our little community on a cushioned veranda surrounded by luminous...

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.
