I have stayed here several times and keep coming back for the friendly service, good location and inexpensive stay. However this time the room I was given was extremely noisy from the outside traffic, I shall be requesting one of the back rooms next time.

The hostel was great in most aspects, the only area which is annoying is the parking situation.

Everyone I encountered, either staff or other guests, were friendly and considerate. My roommate was wonderful. All communal areas were very clean and calm. Quite minimal street noise considering it’s location in the city. Would/most likely will stay again.

This hostel is amazing, clean, friendly staff and all the necessary amenities. The best thing is, it’s affordable but also great value for money. It is in the perfect location, in the heart of the city, with everything just a stones throw away. Thanks for accommodating me :)

It's a good located hostel with a nice rooftop and even a sauna and pool. The room and the bathrooms were clean. But unfortunately the kitchen could have been cleaner and better equipped. In the morning there were still dirty dishes from the last evening in the sink. And I would have felt much more confortable if the sponges would be replaced more frequently.

Had loud room mate who stayed on the phone all day all night so I couldn’t sleep before work Was questioned constantly by reception why I was asking questions A potential corona incident wasn’t explained to me and got told not to worry Bought a weeks worth of food and the next morning it was all gone off my shelf Awful stay and will not be here again

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.
