Great location, close to beach & multiple eating options.
Oto Z 15/02/2019
The hostel is located close to the city centre, to the main station, shops and public transport, everything is within walking distance. The kitchens are well equipped, enough space to sit, eat, hang out. Showers and bathrooms fit the needs, and staff are very friendly and helpful. We had a double room, it was a bit noisy as it was facing the station and you could hear all the trains, but we slept well and returned on several occasions. Would recommend, good value for money.

Cleanliness : rooms okay but kitchen and fridge not so good. No compliance with the silence after11Pm These 2 points might be in relation with a group of workers. Staff very friendly.

I really liked this hostel for everything I have already rated. Initially I had a single room back of kitchen which was a bit noisy for me but I have sensitive hearing. Ian kindly moved me to another and fine. This is a nice small friendly yha and I certainly enjoyed my stay there

This is a great hostel. The owners are very helpful and friendly. Excellent location - only a couple of minutes to the beach in one direction, and a couple of minutes to the town centre in the other direction. The hostel generally has a social atmosphere with activities pretty much every evening such as pool nights, BBQs, beach trips, etc, and there are plenty of communal areas. Also, plenty of fridge space and shelf space in the kitchen. Music in the showers which is a nice touch. And the weekly rate makes it a good deal for anyone staying a while.

We advised exactly when we would arrive and no-one was there. A note directed us to a room to see someone. The door of that room had another note telling us to go to another room. The guy was friendly but was just helping out and really had no idea what to do. On checkout a similar thing even though we were told reception would be manned at a certain time. Very quiet and a great location. Showers blocked up forming a puddle at feet. Linen was worn and had a few stains but bed was comfy and we had enough space in our double room. No real atmosphere as we hardly saw anyone, neither guests or staff. Only guest we heard was a small child who yelled and cried on and off for most of the time it was there.

We stayed as a family, two adults and two small children, for one night in this hostel. The room was adequate for us but the washing facilities were difficult for small children as they were down steps and at the rear of the building. When we arrived in the evening the place was crowded and seemed rather small for the number of people staying there. This hostel is more suited to young backpackers rather than families. There was adequate car parking and good laundry facilities.

Hostel Rating See Customer Rating Guidelines


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 give us your email address, you will be invited 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.
