    We loved how clean our room was. It even had a fresh linen smell. Friendly staff, loved the bar and cafe. We are trying to work out when we can come down again to stay. Have recommended it to many friends already! Thanks for having us!

    Had a four bed dorm which was the nicest dom I've been in in all Straya. Super nice and clean room with an ensure bathroom that was big and very modern. Rooms had lockers where the backpack easily fit in. Kitchen wasn't the cleanest and a little old, but cleanliness of the kitchen is the backpackers duty. Lovely staff who where always helpful and in a good mood.

    Amazing staff and other travellers. Such a positive upbeat atmosphere. If you're wanting to surf or learn how to this is definitely the place to be.

    Great, friendly, helpful team. I found this hostel to be the best I have visited. The staff have created a relaxed atmosphere that was welcoming and inclusive but there wasn't any hard out partying in the dorms. Thanks!

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
