It was ok but not what i was expecting. Reception was close at all time, if you had an issue there were no staff in the facilities. Also kitchen was meant to close from 21.30 to 22.30 but they closed it earlier and I couldn’t have dinner. The WiFi didn’t work properly and as I didn’t have signal it was really important to have a good WiFi. Also the bed wasn’t made and had to ask for sheets. For breakfast they only had strawberry spread and a empty jar of peanut butter.

Best hostel I have stayed at to date. Friendliest and most caring staff who make you feel at home. It's so close to the beach, great coffee shops and just a short drive or cycle to lookout points and activities. Best of all it is a fantastic location for star gazing. Can't wait to go back.

I had a great time in 1770 YHA. Hostel is clean and the bed is comfortable. A coutesy bus is available and on time. It's convenient for people with heavy luggages to travel between the hostel and greyhound bus stop. It's only a few minutes walk through the forest to the beach, and luckily I saw a lot of butterflies during the walk! Manager Greg is a very kind person, he is very helpful during my stay. Not only help solve my problems but also gave useful tips for impressive views of local area.

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.
