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.
