    The kitchen is nice and organized and they have a huge cellar fridge. Pool is great No air con though but the fans and windows are still pretty good Quiet time is 10 pm which is nice Friendly atmosphere like all yha hostles

    All OK, except the free WIFI allocation was a bit stingy. After that expires you have to buy more or book trips to get a free upgrade.

    This is a truly awesome hostel. It has a strong sense of community and plenty of friendly, interesting peeps. Staff are A1 - the doom rooms get way hot though so be prepared to experience the tropics (Please consider getting some aircon for the dormrooms @coffsyha?).

    Lots of long term workers-changes the atmosphere as it feels like it is a less inclusive place. Also means that corridors are messy with all their clothes/shoes left in messy heaps everywhere. No aircon in rooms or downstairs and the fan didnt work very well. Kitchen got very messy in the evening but it got cleaned overnight. Free wifi not very reliable.

    A nice place, clean with a smallish but sufficient kitchen with a large walk-in fridge. Very hot dorm rooms overlooking the pool, the rear ones seem to be much better. Too sweaty and stuffy to sleep well most nights. Pickup & drop off from Greyhound stop, and free luggage storage. Opposite an expensive small IGA, too far to walk to other supermarkets.

    Would never stay there ever again staff did not seem pleasant or very friendly nor welcoming they told me to turn off my Bluetooth speaker before night fell though it wasn't loud and everyone around me enjoyed the background music whilst talking very dull atmosphere would not recommend to anyone

    Got upgraded to a double bed in a family room. Had the room all to myself so could actually get 2 nights uninterrupted sleep which was much appreciated! A short walk to the harbour with amazing views. And there is a lovely walking track into town along the creek. Good lounge area with music on. It was raining a lot so it was a nice area to relax. I felt very comfortable here and enjoyed my stay. Showers were terrific!

    Blanket and bed was not washed ? A bit dirty as if no one clean it still nice last customer . Cleanliness has room for improvement. Location is good ,close to everything, staff is friendly and very helpful. But the cleanliness of the room stop us visiting again .

    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.
