This hostel was my favorite when we were traveling through Tasmania. Our room was clean and spacious, it had a private balcony with excellent view of the beach, and the kitchen and bathroom were clean. The hostel staff was friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend it!

Had a second visit to Bicheno Backpackers and enjoyed it. This time I was in The Shack, which is a short distance from the main part. I preferred this to the last visit when I was in the main part. The good: the bed was comfortable and the sheets and towel were clean and nice and I slept well. Very...

We stayed here for one night during our week in Tasmania and loved it. There's not too much to do in the town itself, it's very small and quaint but we used it as a stop over on our way around Tas. The surroundings are spectacular and the view from the hostel was lovely. The rooms are quaint and cute,...

We stopped in Bicheno for the night so we could watch the Devils in the dark, which was very interesting and worth doing. We were the only group in our section so we had the whole place to ourselves. It was great, clean, neat and had everything we needed. The Wifi was good to. Some things are looking a bit...

Stayed in the shack in an ensuite room which was quite comfortable. The little heater worked well to heat the room. Lots of hot water and good water pressure. Room clean and modern looking. Right in the centre of town. Big downside is the noise. There is no sound proofing. People coming and going, doors closing, in and out of...

In plus: Nice service, generally clean and safe, free wifi and parking place In minus Very very old underinvested, but maybe there is no reason as other accommodation options are more expensive. About Bicheno itself - pinguin tourgise is very nice but everything other is over priced.

Wow. Such praise for a $30 bed. So happy we could assist with "nice service, clean and safe, free wi-fi and parking place". Your forgot the comfortable bed, clean linen and hot shower plus use of all other facilities. The bunkhouse building (cheapest option available) is due for renovation next winter. Perhaps you would like to come and pitch in...

I had rented a car and was driving up the coast without any solid plans for accommodation. I was able to call the facility and request a bed for the night in the late afternoon. When arrived at about 8:30pm and went to go find my bed, the room was already fully occupied. I had to explain the situation to...

I stayed in a 8 bed dorm, it was nice and private, the kitchen was hygienic and the bathroom was really clean. Staff are kind with cuuuuuute dogs ! The hostel is close to the town and beach, so it's perfect to stay all day here. I went surfing in the morning, then went to diamond island when the tide...

During one of my tours we got stranded at Bicheno and this was the perfect place for it. The beds were really comfy and the place was clean and very cosy. It has everything you need and provides a high quality for visitors

I came with no reservations and the staff was friendly and helpful. I had a private room, which was very clean and comfortable. There was a huge living room with TV. The kitchen was large and well equipped. Private parking lot.
