The common area and the concept of the hostel are amazing however our room was extremely dirty and smelled really bad. The kitchen was also dirty. They should be more strict with cleaning and organization.More

Hi, I am so sorry this was your expert, but astonished as well because you said nothing to us, and this is the first time in nine years anyone had called the place dirty! We are horrified this was your experience. There were 90 people...More

A hostel as in our travel dreams. Just perfect! We loved the admosphere, the kids loved the cat😍. The location was good. Short walk to the centre. At night nice noisy but at 11 pm complete silence. How great!

Stayed at the hostel for 2 nights while visiting Albany for the first time. Very convenient location, lovely staff, everything you needed. Very well run. Delicious breakfast pancakes an appreciated bonus.

Warm place with huge open chilling area. Wonderful morning pancakes cooked with care (even gluten free!) Sort of pricey, but cheap when comparing with others in the area. Clean - even the beds were obviously mopped under (a rarity).

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