It's a good located hostel with a nice rooftop and even a sauna and pool. The room and the bathrooms were clean. But unfortunately the kitchen could have been cleaner and better equipped. In the morning there were still dirty dishes from the last evening in the sink. And I would have felt much more confortable if the sponges would be replaced more frequently.

Had loud room mate who stayed on the phone all day all night so I couldn’t sleep before work Was questioned constantly by reception why I was asking questions A potential corona incident wasn’t explained to me and got told not to worry Bought a weeks worth of food and the next morning it was all gone off my shelf Awful stay and will not be here again

everything was good other than that my final night a guest was checked into my room at 6:45am who proceeded to be really loud while getting settled into the room, waking up everyone else. the kitchen was good and twice i saw herds of ants on dining room tables... location and comfort made up for it i guess

Super clean and modern! Bathrooms were good, decent showers and toilets aplenty throughout the building. The Kitchen fridges were a little warmer than I expected, but hopefully that is something that may be rectified! Beds were comfy and the different spaces were really cool, rooftop is a win with hammocks!

Great location, room was clean and tidy, plenty of space. Bathroom was neat and clean. There was a bit of noise from the Transit Bar downstairs.

The hostel has no atmosphere, the staff are not welcoming, not enthusiastic, could not give advice on local things to do. Location is good, so if you’re in a group it should be ok

The hostel was perfect for a weekend. Close proximity to bars and also bus stops. It was clean, the staff were helpful and the floor space in the dorm was huge, with a table in the middle for us to sit and talk which was nice

Very clean and comfortable and staff is nice. There were people who were very rowdy at 4am but it wasn’t the end of the world. Good facilities and amazing showers!!

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.
