“Standard Backpackers, Helpful Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014

We stayed at the Backpackers for 3 nights - 2 in a 4 bed dorm, 1 in a private room. The location is good for hiking and convenient to the town of Bicheno (free wifi in town square), you can also walk from the backpackers to the rocky coast.
The rooms are clean, as well as the bathroom and kitchen. The showers were nice and hot. Compliments to the staff - they stayed up late and collected our bags when they were delivered by the airline at 1am.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in December 2013. This is one of the better backpackers that we have stayed in, more like a motel. Very clean with great amenities. The room that we had has been recently refurbished and set up for the disabled (wheelchair access to shower etc). This was great for us as we were embarking on some extended bushwalking, so it gave us a bit of room to organise our gear. Dined at the pub and bowls club. Both good and very friendly. Thanks Suzanne we will be back.

We never stayed in back packers before , but saw pictures of the place on Internet and decided to give it a try .
It's definitely worth it , the rooms are spotless and ensuite is better than some 4 star hotels we stayed in our ten day trip across Tasmania .
The location can't be better , in between town centre and the beach .
The kitchen is well equipped and clean, the way you would like your own kitchen to be .
I can go on and on about how wonderful and cheap this place is ,
Make sure you stay at this place if you come to bicheno , it offers the best privacy and facilities in the town .

Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review. Great reviews make us extremely happy! We are glad that you gave us a go & were happy with the result. We agree that our ensuite rooms rival some motels & are not your typical backpacker style. We would love to welcome you back one day. Safe travels.

I was travelling with my two friends across Tasmania and for most of the time we were sleeping in motels. But in Bicheno we've decided to choose this option. We were expecting something different and we are not a type of backpakers to be honest. But we were very suprised in a positive way! The place was extra clean and cosy. Room was very bright and nice. We can recommend this place to every travellers! Staff is great and very friendly as well.

We stayed at Bicheno Backpackers for 2 nights in a Queen Ensuite room. This place was really clean, especially the bathrooms and sheets! Does not feel like a backpackers at all!

The showers were huge and very clean. The room we were in had a bathroom designed for wheelchair access and plenty of railing support which is very thoughtful. However, one criticism is the sliding door to the bathroom does not close properly. There is a slight gap and cannot lock. This did not cause too many problems as we were travelling as a couple.

Clean towels and sheets and access to the kitchen facilities is also welcomed. Great stay!

This place was amazing! We felt like we were staying in a hotel, the service was amazing! They were so nice to us, the place was clean and the shower was amazing. Everything was far more than what we expected. It was quiet, peaceful, clean, and very welcoming. Would highly recommend it any day.

Room Tip: Get the double room, it's far more than what you expect it to be
