I can't speak too highly of the hostel. Staff, facilities and value for service are second to none. THANK YOU! At my age luggage is a problem but your location overcomes this.

Our room was very clean and livable! Our en-suite was good. We would have liked a window for some fresh air. Generally, very good value for money.

The bed sank in the middle, the pillows were heavily stained and the bed had a nasty smell.

Wonderful central position, with Central Railway two minutes walk away, excellent cafe attached, and light rail stop right outside. Mattresses dipped badly in the middle: need to be replaced, and one smelled badly. Pillows and bed protector stained beneath spotless linen. Some pieces of cut hair (not our colour!) still on floor indicated lack of cleaning, as did the soap scum on soap holder. Air con turned off at night, which made room rather hot - no window to open. Staff very obliging.

Especially like the artwork in rooms ..of native animals ..feels playful and appreciate the furniture improvements of the last couple of years. Just need big signs now on all floors asking people not to have conversations in the corridors after 10 as the sound carries to the rooms.

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.
