Description

Historic ol' buildings house the Hostel with Soul! Filled with music, an art nook and travelling bro's!

Enjoy hot Winter dinners and smokin' BBQ's and jam on piano, guitars, drums and ukes. Earth-friendly we are with herbs, veg and free bikes, Fairtrade tea, fresh coffee and hot choc for cool nights. Free parking that's perfect for 2 or 4 wheels and if you cycle NZ we give you a sweet deal!

We invite you to join us in our ever-changing home and connect with other like-minded independent travellers. At the Albatross, it's not just about the bed! Run by travellers for travellers you'll find everything you need from comfy, fully-made beds, spacious kitchen, lounge and shared bathroom facilities to a variety of musical instruments, family dinners and an art corner!

Our friendly staff are full of local knowledge, available to book tours, onward travel and accommodation and are always free to teach you some chords on the ukulele!

We look forward to meeting you soon and hope that you will find The Albatross a warm, happy place, filled with new friends and laughter, within which to relax and revive after your time on the road.
