    The owner was very nice.Great location and fairly sociable.There are a few long term Aussies there who should probably have their own section.

    Welcoming and friendly hostel with a wide range of ages and kinds of people staying there. The staff are helpful and the location is very convenient in Albany, right by the main strip. Little touches like a power board by the beds in the twin-share private room were very welcome.

    I arrived at the hostel and got greeted by the charming receptionist with a big smile, she showed me enthusiastically the hostel and explained me the the rules. I felt very well looked after by the staff, the other highlight were the free pancakes every morning. Unfortunately there were not many backpackers in the hostel because of the Covid - 19 so the atmosphere was not that big, but it gave me the possibility to enjoy a very good night sleep 😴

    Every evening I was there, there were party’s going on until all hours of the morning with very loud music. 50 percent of the people hanging out at the hostel were not paying guests, and with no security at the hostel or anybody managing after hours, it felt unsafe. I myself had to go out and turn music down. On 2 occasions there was vomit filling the bathroom sink as well as all over the toilet and floor. I drove over broken beer bottles twice in the parking lot.

    The room was clean enough and had a lock on the door however the rest of the building was very average. Dim lighting and not very clean in the kitchen area. The people staying/living there gave off a very unaccommodating vibe.

    Run down place. I think there were less than 5 Backpackers. rest were people on their 40 to 60ties who would otherwise be homeless. people smoking everywhere, coughing because they are old and sick. people sitting next to you making weird noises like moaning. doors to dorms can be opened without a key. no security at all. place is run by bogans and that's the atmosphere. NOT a Backpackers place anymore. worst hostel ever and 31 bucks for a 6 bedroom? Man that is way too overpriced

    Due to covid & shortage of accommodation This hostel is for the majority occupied by semi permanent persons or those in transition. Dogs allowed in rm It is more like a boarding house. Lots of smoking & drinking Very underwhelming & nothing like it was a few years ago My individual room was clean. But the entire premises was run down, untidy & needed deep clean & maintenance . No smoking area / zones not adhered to Definitely would not stay
