    It's a nice hostel, the bus is very close and I loved the sauna and spa pool! Really great for that money!

    Location is great. Very close to Canberra Museum, Canberra Theatre, main shopping centre and nightspots, but still quiet inside.

    Top location, great facilities & value. Been there a few times now. Definitely recommend.

    Jane D. (February 2015)

    staff could provide a bit more Info regarding public transportation but otherwise very friendly. Nice place, everything you are looking for in an YHA - of course most at extra cost (wifi, lockers)

    This is the second time ive stayed here. First time i had the best time so decided to try it again, and this time was even better. Facilities are great, people are great and you'd be joking to ask for a better location. Best hostel ive stayed in ...

    There are friends from all over the world without racial discrimination. We can talk and live with all kinds of people freely. Supermarket and public traffic are convenient too.
