Great! Fireplace and big desks, it was a nice place to chill or even finish your assignments if you're not there for hiking. I don't think the coffee machine is working properly though. Dear staff, please check.

Loved it, we travelled to the Blue Mountains for the UTA trail event from the Gold Coast Queensland. The location and accommodation was exactly what we needed. Great friendly staff and so grateful there were radiators in the room! We mingled with other guests in the well equipped kitchen and common rooms. Outside was the coldest (wind chill -4!) I have been for a long time but nice and warm in the YHA. All of the Blue Mountains turned on an amazing weekend. Many thanks, Aden & Leigh

Excellent location and communal facilities. Albeit heater was broken in main rec area. Bit dissapointed with cleanliness and poor sleep from the well worn foam mattress. Staff are friendly and helpful. Very different post covid rules. Would I consider staying again, yep.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS ON YHA.COM.AU

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.

We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish comments online:

INAPPROPRIATE OR OFFENSIVE COMMENTS

We will not publish inappropriate and/or offensive comments.

Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language, swearing or references to illicit drug usage.

UNSUBSTANTIATED OR INCORRECT CLAIMS

We will not publish any comments that are not directly related to the hostel, or your experience during your stay.

Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated, incorrect or you did not stay at the hostel that you are commenting on.

COMMENTS INCLUDING STAFF NAMES

We will not publish comments that include full staff names, irrespective of whether your comment is positive or negative.

First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

If you make a negative comment, we will remove any reference to particular staff members.

CHANGED CIRCUMSTANCES IN HOSTELS

If there have been any major changes such as major 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.
