I stayed at the albany twice. It is old and run down however you get what you pay for and we only paid about 10 pound per night. It is in a good location right near the underground and near lots of food places and supermarkets. Also there are ensuites in every dorm so you don't have to go treking down the hallway to use the bathroom. Would recommed staying there if all you want is a cheap place to put your head at night.
