    The atmosphere when we arrived getting a free bbq!

    If anything just some of the other guests attitude which is not down to the backpackers itself.

    Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The free morning breakfast was so nice. It felt very comfortable and like a home away from home.

    Got a little bit loud sometimes, very echoey but then again it was an older building.

    Very clean, comfortable and welcoming. Excellent facilities and friendly, helpful staff. Easily one of the best backpackers I have ever stayed at. Wish I had booked a longer stay.

  • Single
    8.2

    Helpful staff and clean, quiet private room with a comfy bed

    Old shared facilities with boiling hot water in shower - could do with a face lift eg. Paint job, and temperature regulator. Need a light in the car park area as pretty spooky (and bumpy) walking from the footpath area, which is a quiet part of town anyway so no-one to help you if in bother.

    Size of the room

    The window had been broken obviously before I arrived and never replaced

    The 1849 backpackers is the place to stay when in Albany. The staff are extremely generous and friendly. My husband and I had a double room with mini fridge and a tv - a luxury we have not had in any other hostel we have stayed in. The communal kitchen and bathrooms are spotless and the garden area is beautiful with potted plants and a herb garden. The atmosphere is great throughout. We had a fantastic time in the 1849 and met some lovely people with whom we will stay in touch. Highly recommended accommodation. Linda & Spanner.
