    Located in quiet area but really close to the beach! Would've been really good if they had shuttle buses to Suffers Paradise at the time I stayed but unfortunately they didn't. I was unlucky...but I would recommend this hostel.

    Close walking proximity to the beach. There's a convenience store for essential items next to the hostel at Marina Mirage Shopping Centre. You will never go hungry in terms of food as there are quite a few restaurants nearby. Bus stops are in front of the hostel as you arrive. It might be some distance from the city, but it's really easy to catch the bus. Overall a good experience, will definitely stay with YHA again for future trips!

    Beautiful location with 5 star facilities just next door. Fresh fish and chip shop just beyond the Mirage Shopping Center. Great for jogging along the boardwalk. Surf Club, on the beach is excellent value for drinks & food. Patrolled beaches over the road, and a bus from Helen's vale train center and drops you off at the bus stop outside Y.H.A. Cannot get better than that.

    Free wifi sucks

    Very nice hostel! Really clean! But it is located far away from the City and the free shuttle only drives 4 times a day..

    The yha is directly at the harbour, a bit away from the city centre. It's very clean and stuff is friendly. Nice bars around.

    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.
