Obviously the worst place i stayed in my whole life. That old lady was the most unfriendly I've met in the hospitality industry. She yelled at us and cut off the water because it was 10:03 and the check out was at 10:00. I would not recommend this place.

Your group was reminded at 9.55am that check out is 10am to which you seemed to be happy with although it was obvious you would not be out by then. After your group packed up it appeared you were leaving and then you decided to take a shower well after 10am (not 10.03am). Check out times are imposed for a...

Booked 4 beds in an 8 bed dorm for two nights and it was exactly what we needed! The common room was really nice and had really great facilities. The bathrooms were clean and the showers were the best we'd had on our trip! The backpackers is in a great spot, walking distance to everything and the cute residence dog...

We been arranged to stay at homestay style backpacker. Only 2 of us occupy the whole unit with 4 rooms. Only 2 washroom is available, if more people stay at the unit, you need arrange the time to use washroom. The room is clean and well maintained. Definitely recommend it when visit Bicheno.

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...
