    Quiet, friendly, clean. great location.
    John D January 2016
    Stayed in this hostel for a week with my family in Jan 2016. In general it was good, reasonably clean and inexpensive. My kids liked that. Pillow or mattress in my bed was not comfortable for me, my neck is still sore. I never seen cockroaches or other domestic bugs in the hostel, which is good. Location of the hostel is great, right in the CBD in a quite street.

    It's a good place to stay for a couple of days. My family and me enjoyed it. The facilities and the kitchen were cleaned every day, but showers and toiletts definitly need renovation soon.

    It was the worst hostels I've been ever used. Not friendly and honest staff,not clean room... dirty blankets... whatever they says in their advertising is not true they just charge you and when you arrive you see something different...

    Pretty run down and not enough showers or toilets. Long term guests as always make things uncomfortable for normal travelers-the room smelt fairly bad and they have gear absolutely everywhere leaving no space for newcomers. Security wasn't great -the doors were left open all night with people smoking right outside-and it was very noisy at all hours, more a reflection on rude guests I suppose. The staff were lovely when they were actually there.The kitchen was fine and there was free wi-fi (patchy).

    Friendly staff. Clean room and linen. The two blankets help alot as the weather is too cold for me. Near to supermarkets and visitor centre. Good to have a car to visit tourists attraction places; as the YHA does not make any tour arrangements and there are no other tours available at the visitor centre too.

    A very clean hostel, friendly staff and good location. The only negative thing: No wifi in bedrooms.

    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.
