It was a very good experience to stay in this hostel. I have met some lovely people. The staff is friendly and always available, on Sundays we meet all around a cake made by jacky! The backpack is well placed because it is two steps from the bus stop! and if you have a car, there is a car park.... More

Had the displeasure of staying at a hotel that backs on to this backpackers. After hours of listening to the drunks in the BBQ area out the back yelling, singing and chanting - all at the top of their lungs - I finally became so frustrated we called security in the early hours. I've stayed in backpackers before and there... More

They really find you a job. I spent there 6 weeks and I never saw someone to wait more than 1 week for a job. Is a bit dirty and there's no a good organization. But a lot of people stay there for a long time so is like a big family. 4 points!

Now I am staying in Albany Backpacker and I have been staying for few months already. This Hostal has it's own style like giving... More

This place has good mix of people and facilities. Table tennis, pool table offer a good way to pass the time. The location and pricing is good. The large room with multiple bunker beds helped 7 of us get accomodated in one room only. Good deal..
