Hanmer is a nice quiet town, with lots of outdoor activities. This budget accommodation is small and friendly and if you are travelling solo, definitely a great place to meet fellow travellers. My husband and I booked a double room ensuite, which is behind the main house. The room was large, with a double bed and also a set of... More

Friendly place to stay with a friendly host. Very relaxed and easy environment. The bedding can do with an upgrade though. Host lives across the street. Very close to the Town center and that helps. Parking available

This hostel has some amazing vibes : it's small, homey, and lovely looking. The dorm was warm, with an extra blanket and hot water bottle in case of need and no bunk bed! The owners are really friendly and the location is very central (though Hanmer Springs is hardly a big place to start with). Would definitely recommend.

I stayed with a friend for a night in a twin room, which was very nice and spacious. It was fairly cold, but we could use an electric heater. The kitchen is well equipped and extremely clean, perfect. Owners were very nice and helpful. Common rooms were very comfy, especially the massage chair topped it all. Thanks for a great... More

Hanmer Backpackers has it all. A great location just shy of the town centre (one minutes walking distance), comfy beds in warm rooms, a well equipped kitchen and friendly hosts. We had a fantastic time in Hanmer, and loved coming back to the Backpackers to relax in their mezzanine games area, where we lounged on the couches and read and... More

Very friendly staff, small enough for them to greet me by name as I arrived and they screen their guests well so it's unlike some large hostels. Very clean throughout, great communal areas well stocked for self-catering and close to town for everything you need.

We stayed here for one night and arrived late. Yoko gave us a lovely welcoming and was really helpful telling us about places to eat and what to do etc. I had stayed at the backpackers before and second time around had a great stay again. The communal areas are lovely and clean and the fire is lovely. We had... More

We arrived fairly late at night but received a nice welcome from the person at reception. We were told about local places that we could have dinner as well as how the hostel worked. The room was pleasant we had a room with en-suite toilet which were rather cold (we did visit in the winter)! The hostel provided free wifi... More
