It wasn’t cleaned properly, our room was very filthy. My bed had bed bugs. It’s so nice to be with nature, but not under those conditions.

The LoveShack was the cutest little Bungalow!! I would only suggest the staff clean the fan blades and the ac unit on a more regular basis. Other wise it was a clean, bright, cozy unit!

The WiFi speed was fine but I wasn't happy that you only had a certain amount per 24 hours. Hiring plates and cutlery because people make a mess seemed ridiculous considering no other hostel seem to have any problems. I also didn't have any cash to put down this deposit so had to eat out of a food bag. There was no way I was going to use an ATM that charges 5$ withdrawal fee because I had to hire a plate. My room had en suite and no hand soap, considering coronavirus I'd say it's important.

The Hostel is amazing. You sleep in little Bungalows with ensuite bathrooms and in the middle of nature. The common areas are lovely and it is easy to socialise. The kitchen is tiny and our shower wasn't very clean.

I called on the day to much sure we had a bar fridge which I was told we did and when we got to the room there wasn’t one. Shared bathrooms were mouldy. Over all I would come back and stay I would get a room with a bathroom and toilet.

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.
