    Wonderful as always - from the check in time through to check out the staff were helpful and friendly. Room was very clean and toilet facilities were also in good nick.

    Main room has the air of an old colonial club - most excellent! There are minimal notices telling you how to behave, so do the staff a favour and clean up after yourself, it's not hard and that way the cost stays low and we can all enjoy our stay. Great hostel.

    Fantastic facilities and great atmosphere. LOVED the chesterfield lounge and the kitchen is HUGE! Great place, good price, fabulous location.

    I love the big lockers in the room she which also have private power points in them. Lots of hooks too. Mattresses a big too soft for my liking.

    Great hostel, well kept. Only gripe was there is no aircon and in some rooms, no fans, so we had to leave doors open which affects security and let's mozzies in.

    Just stayed for one night. The rooms and also the public areas are very spacious and clean. There are lockers in the rooms with a socket in it but there is no aircon in the rooms. IMO a bit too pricey.

    This is a very nice hostel. The location is central. 5 minutes from walking to the bus station. The Beach is also only a 7 minute walk. It is a quiet town but it is nice for take a rest.

    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.
