YHA Australia has great hostels all around the country. From Sydney to Perth, Darwin to Hobart, and everywhere in between - there's a YHA hostel for you!
No two hostels are the same - you could be sleeping in a train carriage, an old movie theatre, a former prison cell, a tropical bungalow or a purpose-built eco-hostel.

YHA Australia is part of the world's largest backpacker accommodation network, Hostelling International (HI),
providing more than 4,000 hostels in over 60 countries.
Once you have stayed with us you will be invited by email to provide your own rating of the hostel. The rating will be published, whether you give us good or bad marks.
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 yha.com.au, 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:
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.
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.
Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment.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.
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.
