Awarded the co vetted TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2013 and 2014, plus a star rating and recommendation to Lonely Planet 2014, 1849 Backpacker's aim is to be the best Backpackers you will ever stay in, anywhere.

From the moment you get up in the morning to freshly made pancakes each day, you will find genuinely friendly, helpful staff available 24 hours a day (reception always open 7am - 1opm), free, fast and reliable WiFi, sports channels on a big screen (never miss a game) comfortable, spacious social areas and rooms, a grass soccer pitch, table tennis, even a french street theatre being created downstairs - complete with a TARDIS entrance.

Comfortable, safe, social, always clean and well maintained. This is what all Backpackers and Hostels should be like.

Prices are per person per night.
