The Original Backpackers Hostel
The Original Backpackers is a beautiful Victorian building that was converted into backpacker accommodation in 1980. At that time, there were Youth Hostels, but the term 'backpackers' was introduced by the original owners of the Original Backpackers. We reckon that makes us the very first backpackers in the world.
