This place is what all hostels should be like. It felt like luxury compared to most of the accomodation we have stayed in whilst in Australia! The hostel is in a great location, is rather large yet still feels homey and has a great atmosphere....More

Super friendly, just like on my previous visit. And the pancake breakfast was very welcome! Good spot, just a few minutes walk to the bus stop to/from Perth and on the main street. The common room/games room is good to hang out at.

There is no train to Albany, but there’s a coach service from Perth. Bus stop to hostel about 100 metres. Not a problem 😊👍🏼
