    I had a twin room on the second floor. It was basic but comfortable. There were noise issues however no different to other similar facilities with a wide age-group span. Ready access to Central Station is a distinct bonus as is the cafe.

    Centrally positioned and absolutely suitable for all our needs and movements around Sydney. Very helpful at front desk.

    Shared bathroom is sometimes too wet. I am just wondering, when the cleaner usually work. Except that, this hostels is a great place to stay because it has a perfect location.
    Amy R April 2017
    The staff here are lovely and friendly and the location is great, However the bathrooms are not very clean and there is no free wifi in the rooms, only on the first and ground floor which was a shame.

    A cost effective choice for backpackers or for those who do not pay too much your budget on living.

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    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment.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