This was my very first backpack hostel and trust me I will do it again! I've only stayed in hotels or B&B's therefore was very nervous about staying in a backpackers lodge but Albergo made it a unique style bed without the breakfast. The dorms were clean, the bathroom was maintained the general lounge area clean and inviting. Marijam taught this city girl how to put the logs in the fireplace to keep the fire going.. Have I mentioned how warm and friendly the staff was? Extremely helpful. They helped me re-arrange bus tickets find the local taxi buses to get around. They arranged for Wonderful Cameron to drop me at the interline bus terminal when it was time to go. They were awesome. I was a single female traveling alone yet the atmosphere at Albergo is so warm that you just blend right in. Should I ever stay at another hostel again, they definitely have big shoes to fill. Way to go Albergo.
