1849 was such a fantastic experience even if we stayed for one night. The building itself already set it apart from its competitors, full of old world charm and history, it was the most spacious hostel I've stayed at. We booked a couple room and were placed in a family room since they were out of the normal couple rooms. Very tidy and clean. The hosts were super accommodating and friendly, and this facilitated a great vibe in the whole hostel. This isn't a party hostel, which was perfect for us, if you're looking for that perhaps look elsewhere.
The kitchen facilities are very well stocked, and there are quite "free" sections which are gold to the frugal backpacker. Bathrooms were a bit dated but I suppose it goes along with the age of the building, but hardly worth complaining about. All in all, a fantastic hostel which we will certainly be returning to if we ever visit Albany again!
