1849 is by far the best backpackers hostel I've been too! The garden area is beautiful, full of flowers and so well kept! The kitchen is clean and well equipped! The downstairs area is full of musical instruments, board games, puzzles, darts and a ping pong table! The rooms were clean and comfortable with lovely well made beds for your...

We had a family room for five people. It was a bit snug but we did have a large piece of luggage each and back packs, but it was cosy. The room was immaculate and the bedding was clean.

Fantastic to hear Julia, thank you! Very happy you enjoyed the pancakes too, they are certainly a part of the 1849 experience now after four and a half years making them. We worked out that we've made about 125,000 pancakes in that time so we have learned a few cool tricks to make them come out perfectly each time :)...

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...
