    All public facilities are good. However, there are some personal facilities are poor (the bed room is too small, the blanket is dirty etc.)

    it's a very centric hostel and it's perfect to have the central station just in front. Also, the kitchen is fully equiped with all the utensils you want so you can cook freely. The cinema room is the best apart from the swimmingpool! I enjoyed my stay there, by sure!

    Kitchen experience was not too satisfying... not because of the hostel but mostly because of some guests... some people preferred to steal food instead of asking for it nicely.

    YHA advertises it is commited to save the planet. Overall It is right but in the kitchens the recycling bins for cans and glasses end up as general rubbish (black color bag). It is a big waste ! Guest: use instead the recycling bins (blue color bag) in front of the drink dispenser on Level 1

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    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment.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