I stayed here for just one night and found the bed to be comfortable, the hostel to be clean and most importantly the shower was good. Most hostels have terrible showers that do no more than trickle lukewarm water at you but these showers were just fine! Free tea and coffee all day and a large and well maintained kitchen...

Four of us stayed in a private 4 bed dorm at Albatross. The hostel itself was well decorated, nice atmosphere, the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful, our dorm was lovely and clean and the beds were really comfortable! Apparently they do free toast in the morning (it's a yes from me). A couple of things we noticed... Firstly,...

12 to a room dormitory type accommodation. Clean and friendly and very close to Railway Station and City centre. If you are having 12 in a room then you can't have squeaky beds!!

Perfect location in the city centre, everything at walking distance. From experience I expected little comfort from the matrasses, but we had no complaints at all! The staff is very friendly and helpful, they printed our boarding passes for us when we had to leave for the airport. We'll be back!

We came as a couple on a wekend when there were a lot of people up for a night out, so the atmosphere so the atmosphere around the shotel was quite laddish. Pretty basic but no faults to be found really other than wifi being only available in the lounge area
