I just stayed one night with some friends and it's definitely the best hostel I've ever been to! Lovely staff, very clean and the free pancakes for breakfast were amazing, I wish I'd have spent more then one night there ..

Julie Burgett · 8 January 2017 I haven't stayed at a backpackers before, so I haven't got anything similar to compare, however, I was pleasantly surprised as the property is located right in the CBD in Albany and is close to some amazing dinning experiences and of course shops. The staff were very polite, friendly and helpful. Check in and...

This hostel got everything you need for a good vacation... Very clean, well furnished (I think nothing you need is missing, especially in the kitchen). Cannot get bored with all the activity you can do there from tennis table, football, card games and many more...nice lounge room as well!!! Maybe can be a bit pricy but considering the free breakfast...

On the priciest side of hostels (on par for the area though) but you definitely get your moneys worth. Free pancakes.. Actually delicious and as many as you can eat served in a timely manner and with a big smile. Great communal socialising area with heaps of boardgames, table tennis and darts. A huge extensive cooking area that is clean...

A wonderful hostel, beautiful building and surroundings. Great downstairs area, however, the downside was that the kitchen was next to the entertainment area. I prefer to eat in a peaceful environment without being worried to be hit by a ping-pong ball. The kitchen was closed at night and re-opened later in the morning. I was not told this upon checking-in...

Hello, thank you for leaving us a review. I am really happy you enjoyed the facilities and the atmosphere, I am really concerned about the two problems you had here though, I wish you had mentioned them to us during your stay. There is only one smoking area, and that is well away from the verandah by the blue fence...

I stayed in 1849 Backpackers for one week in November. The backpackers is run by a fastidious couple and is clean and well kept. 1849 is in the centre of Albany and is in walking distance to almost everything including the fun but limited nightlife. Some of the rooms even look out onto the breathtaking bay. As is stipulated, 1849...

The hosts and the staff is very friendly. The Backpackers looks very nice and is very clean. Every morning you get Crêpes for free, also Coffee and Tea. The kitchen is fully equipped, clean and well organized. At 10pm the lights get dimmed, the music will shut off and alcohol is strictly forbidden after 10pm in the Backpackers. This guarantees...

Awesome casual stay in Albany and it couldn't have been better than at the 1849 Backpackers. Morning complimentary pancakes were legit! And very friendly staff and patrons. Great facilities and close to Albany town centre. Huge recommendations!
