    Lovely old building x nurses accommodation, friendly service, very informative, excellent location (directly across from the beach), great shopping, easy access, very clean and quiet at this time of year. I had a good nights rest.

    The staff were very kind and caring! I had a wedding on and no where to put my luggage, they let me use the storage room for the day which is secure and they said i could still use all the amenities :)! Great price too, thanks guys!

    Nice hostel and great location. The only thing that I did not find that great is the sofas. Would recommend to anyone.

    The rooms and hostel were very nice! Clean, atmospheric and spacious. Sadly the there wasn't really a group feeling and everyone was in their own bubble. Maybe it's due to low season

    Beautiful! Best hostel in Australia...

    The staff of the hostel is friendly. The hostel is pretty clean, one of the best kitchens I've seen. The location is great, the only disadvantage is the distance to the supermarket. I found the code from the lugage room on the ground, just outside the room which means everyone has access to this room..

    Ratings guidelines

    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.
