I spent one month at the Prince Albert and I really enjoyed each day. The staff is superb!! always friendly and dedicated to its customers and their needs. If you spend some time there, you'll feel part of the "family". Lots of fun at the Games night and the Quiz night!! Wonderful free breakfast with waffles!!
and if you just want to relax, you can choose among lots of movies or tv series or you can always play some games with your friends!!
The hostel is located in a great position, just 5 mins to town or supermarket, or to some really nice walking track, or the queens garden!
Rooms and bathrooms are always clean. Unfortunately some rooms are quite small..but, you know, i'm sure you are going to spend most of your time out!! so..no problem!!
oh..and you have free internet all day and night!!
