I don’t know what happens with this YHA but it was everything really dirty. The showers were really bad. The kitchen dirty all the times with a lot of plates dirty. One night was a lot of water camping out of the fridge. And the Maneger was really unpleasant. I didn’t stay there more days because of all those problems. I’m really sad about how a good brand with good hostels could stay in that state.

Great hostel one of the better YHA along the east coast. Not central to surfers paradise but great if you like walking and experiencing places. Also does free daily shuttle into town and back again .. absolutely brilliant.

Not so bad not so good. The room was not spacious enough to organize things. And not so near to main tourist destinations.

Our room provided everything we needed. It was not glamorous and one day some new paint and curtains would be a really good idea, but to me cleanliness is more important, and a quality mattress to sleep on, also. It was pretty quiet, too - no traffic noise, or other human noises. The lounge room was very comfortable and the kitchen looked well equipped. Since we were there in February, the fans saved the day, however an airconditioner would have made things a lot more comfortble.

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

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.

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.
