THE HISTORY OF LANCASTER’S BACKPACKER HOTEL

Lancaster’s is located in the Jim Edwards historic home and is named after another former tenant, Slim Lancaster – two of McCarthy’s long line of well-known characters.  The restoration of Lancaster’s began in 2002 and opened in spring 2003. Upgrades were performed in May 2009.  The final upgrade to an improved no-frills budgetel was completed in late 2011.
