    I would prefer to book into dorm rooms with 3 or 4 beds. This one does not have dorm rooms of less than six. I had a top bunk right next to the air conditioner, which management said needed to be on at all times, so I had to sleep under a heavy comforter to get away from the heavy cold draft.

    Skydived and spent the evenings in the bars having beers and good food. It's very chilled out town and the hostel reflects that perfectly. Staff are very nice and helpful. Place is 'used' but very homely and price is cheap. Clean and happy Hotel

    Great staff, relaxed vibe - perfect for a hostel on a amazing beach. Manager is very helpful and organised our stay. Big dorm, nice and roomy... We thought it would be cramped but huge rooms and nice for meeting people

    The whole place is very grubby and tired. The mattress protector under our sheets were disgusting, not been washed ever by the stains & smell of them. Lovely staff but the owners really need to up their game and invest more, it could be nice, but currently pretty rough.

    Friendly welcome with relevant and useful information. Very good bedroom, nice and cool on a very hot day. Very good shower room/toilet right next to the bedroom. Hostel very well located for the beach and swimming area.

    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.
