Reviewed 14 September 2016

We stayed here for our NZSS girls football tournament week with a team of 16 girls and 4 adults. It was awesome! Beautiful clean rooms, comfortable beds. Lovely onsuites in each room, well appointed kitchen, breakfast (including yummy cook your own waffles) provided every morning and friendly, helpful staff.
We loved it and highly recommend to all

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are probably quieter.

Very friendly, helpful staff, very clean room/dorm (the most comfortable mattress ever!!!!), and literally the best wifi I've had in Australia/New Zealand. Whoo! I really liked this place :). Would recommend.

Clean! Social atmosphere, conducive to meeting new people. Exceptional and accommodating service -- Mike and Nani are friendly, personable, knowledgable, and honest. Also highly recommend the in-house restaurant; both service and food were excellent.

Amazingly friendly place and people. The staff are helpful and talkative. The rooms are well heated, clean and very spacious. The free breakfast is good and the $10 meal in the evening is more than worth the money.

Prince Albert Backpacker's has it all, amazing outdoor and indoor lounge areas, spacious rooms, fast WIFI, a pub style bar on site, breakfast, and amazing staff. The only down side is the kitchen is a bit small, in saying this they offer fantastic dinner deals at the pub that more then make up for the small kitchen. I wish I had been able to spend more nights here.

Stayed: March 2016
