    The location couldn't be better and the staff are really friendly. Having a 24-hour front desk not only helps with safety, but also brings the confidence that there will be somebody in charge in case you need anything at any time. There are people responsible for keeping the premises clean at different times during day and night, and this routine stimulates mots guests to keep the place in order. However, even hostels are way expensive in Australia.

    Shower room is amezing for a hostel. Few hostel would provide space to dry your body. Also toilett is surprisingly clean.

    Location was so convenient to airport bus shuttle and city circle tram. Facilities basic but very clean, great staff and lots of cool communal hanging around space.Highly recommended!!! We stayed at Melbourne Central YHA when we went to the Aus open. We flew in early morning, put our bags in the YHA lockers and caught the free tennis tram shuttle from directly outside the hostel straight to Melbourne Park. Fantastic 3 days.

    I was very impressed that my bed had been reserved for me! A single bed was quite unexpected and gratefully appreciated!!! As a 61 year old with Arthritis it is simply impossible for me to climb up to a top bunk so I was extremely impressed because another place I booked into refused to do that for me!

    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.
