    It is a very small, nice hostel where you are bound to get in contact with other guests. The Pool is nice to cool down after a hot day and the parrots and cockatoos welcome you at the hostel.

    If your looking for activities and social interaction this is not the hostel for you. If you want quiet and safe go for it.

    Thanks to the other occupants i had a good time. Paying extra for a single room was a bad idea. Dark brick cell like room with bunk beds. Floor tiles cracked, grubby curtain at the window. Right next to the back door (everyone has to go through here to the toilets and showers) this door has to be unlocked every time, as does the shower/toilets. the locks are noisy and clunky and it is very disturbing thro the night. cleanliness ok in the showers but dead flies in the lights, cracked floor tiles. This place needs some investment and improvement. Communal areas are fairly clean and comfy, altho not enough fresh air getting in. some lights not working, a row of clocks none of which are working. Needs some TLC

    This hostel also serves as a holiday park. For this reason I think services are limited but still provided a very nice stay. That being said..... the hostel and holiday park are completely separate. You must use your key to go anywhere as you please.

    Nice little hostel, with friendly, helpful manager, clean throughout (even the kitchen is spotless!) and hot showers. Clothesline was useful, as was laundry and lounge-dining arrangement allowed conversation between the two.

    YHA is inside trailer park. Toilets and showers were outside and lock was difficult to use (especially in the rain at 2AM). We were in a private room - felt like a bunker! Overall just seemed a bit odd and uncomfortable.

    Customer Reviews on yha.com.au

    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 yha.com.au, 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.
