Albany Bayview YHA
Ranked #16 of 39 Specialty Lodging in Albany
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at Bayview in Albany for a couple of nights. It's very conveniently located and is near to York Street (with all sorts of cafes and restaurants - breakfast to late night) and it is walkable to the port and the gaol. They also rent out bicycles for a cycle around town! Jennie (the wonderful lady at the reception) was really helpful and would recommend places to go around Albany!

Right from the staff at the Reception, to entering the bedroom, I liked it. Jenny is a remarkable lady. I checked in after hours, and she did all the paperwork without any fuss. She was there even after hours! More Aussies should adopt this service attitude.

I spent 2 nights here whilst taking a trip around the southwest. Most of the people staying were working, most were out early with was great for me as it many no queues for the bathroom!
It was comfortable and due to it being quiet I had whole dorm to myself for the first night and only share with one other on night two.
It was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful plus there is free WiFi. The room got a bit chilly but I warmed up in the lounge/dining area. Each guest has their own set of pans, plates and cutlery which I found to be a brilliant idea and worked very well.
Great location in town close to pretty much everything you could need, even has car parking.

I will be recommending Albany to everyone.

Room Tip: I took the 6 bed mixed dorm...it was fine. Apparently the doubles are nice

I went to Albany for a short trip (4 Nights) and chose to spend my nights at the YHA since I had good experiences with YHA Hostels. When you check-in the people from reception show you around and tell you everything you need to know. You even get a full set of dishes and cutlery and free wi-fi. The atmosphere in general is nice, there are nice wallpaintings throughout the hostel (Especially the big mural in front of the entrance). Kitchen and rooms were clean. The staff seemed to know the area very well and were always at hand with advice about how and where to spend the days (e.g. hire bikes for a daytrip). Last but not least I got a discount for my whale watching ticket which was the reason for my trip to Albany.

I am glad i chose to stay here while i was in Albany, i met some great people and had a pretty good time getting to know the place! I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Albany! The garden is nice and it's generally a nice relaxed place to stay!

I've done a trip to Albany with my other 5 friends, staying for 2 nights.

Like: free wifi password (if you are fast enough to get one from reception) but cannot connect from bedroom. Hostel provided us a set of eating cutlery, dish, fork, spoon , cup

Dislike: Number of bathrooms are quite too small comparing to the size of hostel. No heater in shared bedroom, but blanket provided is good enough to keep warmth in the winter night. Kitchen cutlery were not varied, and most of them were not in good shape. Security was one issued I'm worried since most of the time the door accessed after office hours usually kept unlock.
