“Nice hostel, friendly staff and clean rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

We can recommend this hostel! The rooms are a bit dark, but all have windows and the rooms are cleaned every day. The staff is very friendly and helpful and they also help you with finding a job. Tv with many channels, computers, and pool table is also available :-) nice atmosphere

Great location, close to everyting in Albany.Bathrooms and kitchen always clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Old building so sometimes can get bit cold, but room had extra blankets.Stayed in 4 bed dorm which was clean and had lockers. Would recommend to anyone coming to Albany.

traveled with family of 6.

We stayed in the mix dorm at the 2nd level hence less noisy. Bathroom and kitchen just next to our room.
Pros - Good location, clean rooms, clean bath, well equipped and clean kitchen.
Cons - No free breakfast. No BBQs for guest unlike what was stated in their website.
Service - So so. The check-in time was different from what was written in their webbie. We could check in through phone and put our stuffs but we had no keys.

Fairly standard backpackers in Albany. Quite shabby. Superficially clean. I stayed in a private double room with shared bathroom. The room had that smelly backpacker smell. The location was very good and the hostel not noisy. If you are looking for a dorm room you won't find anything better given the low standard of Australian backpackers. If you want a private double room I would pay extra and stay at a motel.

Albany bayview is a nice hostel, the rooms are good, our 4 bed dorm was a littlecrowded and when tv was on too loud and the movie room door wasnt shut you could hear it in your room.
The cooking facilities are good but more cooking equipment would have been usefull. plenty of space in the kitchen, and not too busy.
The communial area was nice, plenty of space, comfy sofas, things to do, and a lovely murial on the wall.
the Bathrooms were not ideal, my room was on the lower floor and there was only 1 female shower and toilet which were usually in use, there were additional facilities upstairs but it was a long way to walk, especially when they were full too. The timers on the lights also plunge you into darkness halfway through your shower. The facilities were clean, but the age of the building made them look a little dark and old.
the hostel is in a good location to walk to town and the harbour, you do really need transport to get the the beaches in the area, its worth it as the beaches are beautifull.
The staff were very helpfull and friendly.

I would stay here again, and reccomend this hostel. It is a backpacker hostel, if you want your luxuries then its probably not for you.
