We had a really nice, unfortunately short stay at the Albatros! Not only because of the awesome people but also the great atmosphere that the hostel brings the way it is built. You have porches and a little yard to chill at as well as a picnic area in front of the entrance. Enough parking More

Well I booked through hostel world and when I arrived they had no recollection of my booking, but luckily they had a spare room which I stayed in instead of the female only room I had actually booked. They then charged my credit card with the balance of the stay afterwards by saying I More

Ayumi, the manager is a heroine and is almost certainly keeping the hostel solvent single-handidly. The reason this hostel is not in the 80% is because of the group tours who flaunt rules and seem to get bailed out by ayumi's industriousness and keen to please!! More

curtains were mildew-y, and the towels provided were stained. toilet light didn't work shortly after being fixed by reception, so we ended up having to shower in the dark. owners have a dog which is allowed to run around the property at times, so not the best for those who have allergies More
