Nice hostel where staff cares about you. They also look for jobs for you and you always can get one! Thanks to this we had some really good experiences! You can also help cleaning and get free accommodation. And the town is really lovely. Finally one of the best hostels we've ever been.

Albany Backpackers is a very good hostel close to the center of Albany. It's very clean and the staff is very efficient. 2 big kitchens where you can cook in every moment of the day, and a lot of friendly people ! Only 100 mt to the bus station!

Great hostel located in the center of lovely Albany. Great facilities, especially the common room with big screen and beamer and two big kitchens (even in "rush hour" there is plenty of space for cooking and preparing your meal).
