Loved the easy access from country trains and then the light rail was right there. Wonderful bonus. Haven't been to Sydney city for sometime so was delighted to be able to use the Light rail to get around. will recommend to friends and when need to come to Sydney for visiting hope to be able to stay again. Love the fact that there is a cafe connected and hope to be able to test it out next time. It is great that YHA are using Bamboo for keycards etc. Congratulations

Everything was great. It was very quiet, and I got the impression that the hostel was not full.

We’ve stayed here frequently in the past, and it was good to be back, especially now the roadwork outside is complete and we could use the trams. Always a great location. Thanks for having us! Like how the wifi is available throughout the hostel, not just in specific areas

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.
