3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

Stayed here one night while visiting Freycinet and Maria Island. Units are fairly clean, rooms and facilities are comfortable but somewhat basic. Shared showers and toilet are of usual backpacker standard. Had a bit of noise at night in the nearby area. Location is a short walk from several restaurants and not far from an interesting blowhole in the shoreline rocks. Owner was helpful with questions and courteous. Overall, a comparable experience to many other backpacker places. They have some parking spots in front with plenty more car space on the street.

Pros - location a short walk from the beach/centre. Quiet. VERY CLEAN. Good kitchen.

Cons - we were unlucky with noisy couple co-habiting. Beware the landlady is normally offsite and you ring the outside telephone to get her to drive round. Arrive at a reasonable time or arrange in advance. The noisy couple arrived ~9.30 and it took a while for them to get sorted!

A friend and I stayed here early January 2012. It was more like staying in a friendly house than a backpackers. Very well located, excellent value, super friendly manager (thanks, Catherine!), and very clean. The house had a well equiped kitchen, and the outlook to the ocean was superb. Definitely the high point of our Tasmanian holiday, with stunning Freycinet NP/Wineglass Bay a 30 minute drive away. Fabulous!

I'd pre-booked a single room in the main house, a good move: double bed and my own tv. Luxury! There is a communal living room and kitchen plus two showers etc, all more than adequate. The garden view offers bunnies and ocean glimpses. I really enjoyed staying here, the ideal base for a day trip to Wineglass Bay/Freycinet National Park, which was STUNNING. The Backpackers' management were affable and helpful. My only suggestion to the owners is that they install WiFi - it's a bit of a schlepp to the I.T Centre or White Dog Cafe (slowest Internet I've ever used in Oz). I'd rather have had the option of paying the Backpackers for WiFi and having the onsite convenience. (P.S, If you arrive on the 4pm bus from Launceston bring your groceries with you. Bicheno's Supermarket closes at 6 30pm - thankfully I'd already confirmed this.)

Thought we had booked a double room ensuite but it turns out that none of the rooms have their own shower. Ours had a private toilet though.

The room was fine, had a tv and was quite spacy.

The kitchen was clean and well equipped. The bathrooms were clean too. The place was very relaxed and cosy. We enjoyed the stay.

This is a great Backpackers Hostel! We would have preferred to have had a double room, but the only available accomodation for us was in a mixed dorm. This was fine - probably the best dorm accomodation we have seen. Loads of secure space for your luggage (if you have your own padlock) and curtains around every bunk for complete privacy. There are no individual lights for the bunks, but that's fine if you have a head-torch. Clean kitchen, good equipment and reasonably comfortable TV lounge (would be on the small side if the dorms were all full).
