    Its a great place for someone who just needs a shower and a bed and doesn't mind sharing with a stranger/s.

    I generally don't like recommending FOR or AGAINST, but I do rate YHA's in general best value for money in accommodation as far as I can see in the tourist industry. Perhaps always in Albany take WARM clothing with you.

    This was our first stay in YHA hostel and we were pleasantly surprised. The location was very good, there was free parking available. I had all necessary information from Jennie before arrival. I appreciate free basic breakfast, availability of wifi and cleanliness.

    One very good experience of this place is the fully equiped kitchen. Lots of places remove plates, cups, cutlery, pots and panns from the kitchen, which is realy annoying. This place has all the things you need. That is good, because with cooking a meal for fellow backpackers is the easiest way to make new friends!!

    Main issue was electrical fault that turned off all power except lights in the room constantly. Every 5 minutes on our last day of staying there. Really needs attention for safety reasons.

    A family friendly hostel with good facilities. No discomfort being an older (very mature) person amongst the crowd.

    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.
