What a great stay! Massive thanks to Mere in particular who made mine and my friends stay just perfect. She went above and beyond on multiple occasions which was much appreciated. Also Mere’s professionalism, efficiency and kindness was second to none - a fabulous team member!! Will return for sure!

Our room was very clean and the TV was a bonus. The closeness to all transport was ideal.

This hostel holds the most cleanliness and update hostel I’ve stayed in! Very much like a hotel, very clean, very quiet if you’re a backpacker looking to let loose may be not your best stay but if you’re working or a person for the night out you’ll always come back to having an amazing sleep! Wifi was slow but like all of australia I wouldn’t complain amazing kitchens, own cinema, pool and balcony common areas and 3 floors with laundry would highly recommend anyone travelling to stay here!!!

great time at the YHA Sydney central. I appreciated the kitchen facilities and the happy hour in the evening as well as the lady from Argentina from the travel agency. She gave me very good tipps to discover the city. thank you again.

I stayed here ten years ago and I was not disappointed when I came back. Clean facilities, great and friendly service and best location. Loved the train going straight to Circular Quay.

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.
