The location is excellent, a stone’s throw from the tram. Unfortunately you then pay the price of a deafening racket all night long which made sleeping impossible. Added to this, the doona was quite thin and the heater in the room did not work consistently.

A great place to stay with check-in staff concerned about your comfort. The first room allocated, the heater didn't work; second room had not been made up; 3rd room was fine. The reception staff were exceptionally helpful & friendly during the whole process and provided a complimentary drink in response to the problems. This is all I expect from any organisation...sometimes things don't work our right but work to make it right & provide some recognition of the disruption to the customer.

I've stayed at YHA Melb Central many times before and returned this time to book a private double room. Everything was good until when I checked out, the female staff at front desk was rude and very particular about where to put the sheets I brought down. I couldn't locate the basket which is usually in the corridor downstairs. I was forced to relocate the sheets I had placed on the floor of the corridor into the basket in a very unfriendly way. I was shocked to be approached in this way.

It is a good spot to stay in Melbourne. You can easily reach all interesting places. Good value in corona times. Just two little things - the windows in the rooms could definitely get a clean up and sponges in the kitchen area should be changed more often.

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.
