    The YHA was easily in the top 3 I've stayed at in the Greater Sydney area. If I ever need to go to Cronulla or its surrounds again, this is where I'll stay. It was a bit of an adventure trying to find the private rooms (even with the directions provided by the front desk), but all in all it's a great place. 50m to the main shopping strip, 500m or so to the beach - make sure you bring your bathers/swimmers/trunks and a towel.

    I stayed in Cronulla beach yha hostel for 6 months working and didn't want to leave. It's awesome! You meet so many cool people. This is a great place for long term working backpackers. The staff are kind and helpful. I will never forget my stay at Cronulla. It became home and it's the best hostel! It's pretty clean as the cleaners work everyday but sometimes there is a bit of a mess but it's alright.

    Pleasant room mates. Family vibe. One girl is quite Hostile, otherwise a great place to call home for a while.

    Good hostel, good location and friendly staff but very bad kitchen equipment and noisy hostel at night.

    Amazing location. 2 minute walk to the beach and all of the shops, restruants, and pubs. Mike, the owner, goes above and beyond to accomodate the guests, whether you have any questions about the area or are looking for local jobs.

    I had a nice stay here. A couple of parties going on but no problem. I think the staff do an amazing job as some of clients pretty messy.

    To be honest we only stayed here because we messed up our hostel bookings and couldn't find anywhere else in the city. Was really glad we came here for the night though. Cronulla is a beautiful place with amazing restaurants and night life on the weekend. The hostels itself was ok. Very busy and mostly full of long term guests. The person on the desk was great. Because they normally don't put new guests with long term guests we got money off and my travelling partner only had a mattress rather than a bed so he gave us another discount. Would recommend getting out of the city and coming here for a weekend

    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.
