Stayed in the Queen en-suite room which is above-&-over anything I would expect from a ‘backpackers.’ Room is small - no need for it to be bigger - & very clean, with a small TV & good heater & private bathroom which was large, modern & clean. Shared facilities were ample with a lounge & kitchen with everything one may need. This room (& a couple of others) are in a separate location but it is no more than 30 seconds away in the car after collecting keys & being informed of relevant information at reception. Close to everything in Bicheno (but bear in mind everything in Bicheno shuts early - which, of course, reception advised.) Great price (especially compared to other Bicheno offerings) & good location for visiting Coles Bay & exploring Freycinet National Park.

Excellent position, quite comfortable hostel

Pros: Good position, had a nice atmosphere
Cons: It may be the only time it has happened, but it's hard to understand how a wrong booking (room type) can be made in such a small hostel
Location: Bicheno is a lively little beachside town with pretty scenery, gorgeous beaches, small shops, 3 or 4 cafes and a fantastic art gallery
The hostel seemed quite cosy and nice, what I saw of it. However, my booking was mucked up. Instead of the private room with double bed which I had paid for, I was given the key to the shared dorm with bunks. When I went back to the desk, there was no forthcoming apology or explanation, however the friendly and polite young lady quickly sorted out the problem by offering me the rumpus room apartment over the road, which I was quite happy with as I then had my own kitchen and bathroom. It was quite ok, and the bed was nicely made and very comfortable. The hostel is in a very nice elevated position close to town centre. I'd give it another chance but it did lessen my trust in internet booking.

Good value for money

Clean rooms with all linen provided. Great location close to the Bicheno bakery and a fabulous pizza cafe and bar. Recommended.
