Albany backpackers is in a great location as it is just across the road from the tourist information which is where coaches drop you off. We had booked a female dorm via a website but when we arrived they told us they only do mixed dorms. They were really good and honoured our booking by arranging to keep one dorm for girls whilst we stayed there. They were really friendly and welcoming. The showers were ok apart from the fact that there isn't any privacy apart from a shower curtain. The kitchen was old so I wasn't tempted to use it while I was there although it did look clean and enough people used it. All in all I'd recommend it for a couple of nights stay.
