    I had room 124. Horrible you basically sleep in the old kitchen. You will wake up from everyone that uses the kitchen/TV and stay awake from it. Used ear plugs and didn't helped. The bistro was nice and the food was good and cheap.

    Das hostel liegt sehr weit außerhalb der Stadt, ist aber wunderschön auf einem sehr grossen Areal angelegt. Voller Papageien und anderer Vögel. Die Betten sind allerdings sehr schlecht. Man liegt auf dem Metall, der in den Matratzen enthalten ist.

    Die DZ mit eigenem Bad sind sehr sauber und sehr schön eingerichtet. Die DZ ohne eigenes Bad und Dorms dagegen sehr eng und die Duschen und Toiletten nicht sauber. Es gibt keinerlei Haken für Handtücher.

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    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment.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