    The hostel is Ok. I have here a number of times. My experience this was soured by a staff member on reception who was both incompetent and rude.

    buena localizacion junto a la estacion central, perfecta combinacion con aeropuerto por tren (20min.). Limpio, habitaciones buen tamaño con taquilla. Por el precio podrían incluir el desayuno o una habitacion para dejar equipaje. wifi solo en el hall y un poco lento.

    Doing things peacefully is not an easy option, no wifi in the dorm room yet constant music everywhere else. Other than that, I loved it.

    Este hostel tiene todo lo que necesitas, tiene un buen ambiente y la cocina es muy completa

    As usual, overall a good experience with YHA with simple but well thought through facilities and friendly, helpful staff. I did find my room very hot and quite dark though and it was quite noisy being right by the platforms.

    A great hostel at a great location

    We stayed in one of the train carriages which was a great experience. The sound of the trains at the nearby station in the morning didn't bother me at all. It added to our experience of sleeping in a carriage. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Kitchen/lounge room is fantastic. Well equipped and spacious. Great location too

    Other hostels include WIFI. Gouging people at $5 per day is a good reason to stay elsewhere.

    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.
