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...

We strongly feel you misconstrued what was actually said and I need to correct a misconception you have about our policy. If someone is not 100% welcome here we don't let them stay, regardless of nationality, so I...

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!

The staff are super friendly and very enthusiastic at trying to get you to spend more time in Albany and in explaining all the stuff to do there. The hostel is clean and comfortable and I really liked that there was a separate boys/girls showers and toilets, they were very clean. Good location in the centre of town, and fantastic...

This is lovely backpackers, clean, friendly staff and a beautiful building. I only stayed here one night but it was probably the best backpackers I have been to in WA. I have been to Albany a few times before but this was my first time. Forget the rest of the backpackers in Albany and stay here and to top things...

Danny and Paula have created the perfect hostel. It is clean, safe, comfortable and in a great location, close to the town centre, IGA and Dan Murphys.They are the first to say that this is not a party hostel, although the atmosphere is so chilled, but also has enough fun to make your stay a good one. The facilities are...

Couldn't have been happier with my stay here. Danny and Paula (the owners) were incredibly welcoming - Danny even came up to me when I first arrived and offered advice on where to go/what to see in Albany. They have also clearly put a lot of thought in the hostel - there are plenty of good hang out areas -...

Went to 1849 with a friend and stayed just one night. Straightaway we both felt as if we were at home. Thanks to Aaron and Didi who welcomed us and showed us both around. The rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable. I was a bit hesitant at having to share a toilet, however they were spotless. Met some interesting people...

I was initially hesitant about noise (considering my experiences at YHAs) as I wanted to get an early start. But I needn't have worried as it was quiet, cozy with lots of hangout areas (lovely flowering garden and peaceful lounge room, sofa on deck with 2 cats) and a bright kitchen with equally sunny attitudes. The owners are clearly like...

Thank you for such a lovely review, and for letting other travellers know your experience while staying here. It really helps people make the right choice when they are visiting an area for the first time. I'm glad you had enough pancakes too!
