This hostel is really convenient when travelling in and out of Sydney by train or bus. Spotlessly clean, welcoming staff, quiet. Love the old train directly outside my window! Next time I want to stay in there.

Thank you to Sylvia for sorting out, firstly my online enquiry and then the booking :) A big shout out to Poly' on the front desk for sorting out my room, (a few issues). He's such a warm, easy going member of staff to talk with. The other staff I talked to on the front desk were just as lovely. Overall a good experience. I had a carriage dorm which was absolutely fine. If you are a very light sleeper, don't choose. The young lady that cleaned the kitchen in the mornings, worked hard - spotless!

This hostel is well-located and good value for money. The 'double' private room had a triple bunk so would fit a small family. The compulsory cold air-conditioning is a bit much, though. That, toiletries, 2-ply loo paper and a TV might send me elsewhere next time for work travel. The cafe isn't open but the German bakery downstairs is good. Hostel staff are helpful and friendly.

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 give us your email address, you will be invited to rate your hostel stay upon checkout.

We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish comments online:

INAPPROPRIATE OR OFFENSIVE COMMENTS

We will not publish inappropriate and/or offensive comments.

Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language, swearing or references to illicit drug usage.

UNSUBSTANTIATED OR INCORRECT CLAIMS

We will not publish any comments that are not directly related to the hostel, or your experience during your stay.

Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated, incorrect or you did not stay at the hostel that you are commenting on.

COMMENTS INCLUDING STAFF NAMES

We will not publish comments that include full staff names, irrespective of whether your comment is positive or negative.

First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

If you make a negative comment, we will remove any reference to particular staff members.

CHANGED CIRCUMSTANCES IN HOSTELS

If there have been any major changes such as major 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.
