    My husband and I enjoyed our stay and appreciated the help of the reception staff in taking our luggage to our room when cleaned because we couldn't get the lockers to work. We hope to use this facility again when in Sydney as it is so close and convenient to Central Railway. We particularly enjoyed the café on the ground floor for breakfast and the prices were very reasonable. One thing we didn't appreciate was the noise coming from other residents when coming in the early hours of the morning making incredible noise and waking us up. Otherwise, well done. We were very happy with our stay.

    Untidy, unclean, too expensive - extra money for e.g. Bagage storage etc.

    Hostel was ok however the door to our dorm would not lock. Notified staff but nothing was really done about it. Bathroom facilities were not very clean - vomit over the toilet wall etc. However great location and friendly staff.

    We had a great en-suite double room for a fantastic price in central Sydney, in a modern friendly hostel. Great location and would definitely recommend!

    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    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment.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.
