Stayed here for two nights and found the place good for a quiet, comfortable and CBD located stay. It was a nice touch to have free fresh towels and bars of soap provided daily in our clean and cosy 5/6bed dorm. The bathrooms were single private spaces with plenty of hot water. Kitchen is small but well equipped and cleaned...

This hostel is not exactly in the city centre, even if it is not far. The rooms are clean but the kitchen is extremely small. There is not enough space for people to cook and eat. I would not recommend this place for more than one night.

Okay, I love YHA and the staff here are like most, they are the best, super friendly, helpful and patient and reason enough to stay in a hostel. It is in a good locaiton, close to the major attractions, waterfront, markets and transportation. The worst part of this hostel however is the kitchen which is far too small and crowded...

Separated taps for hot and cold water, shower mixer a little confused, old materasses and a weird sack to put yourself in rather than bed sheets. There are neither lockers nor shoe raks, as a result the room aroma is exactly what you want it to be (as I net your dream is to sleep in a football club changing...

We stayed for 4 nights is a family room with private bathroom. The location is very central to the dock area, the mall and the Salamanca area. The negatives are that there is no lift (stairs only) and 3 floors. Also, there is a town clock nearby that chimes every 15 minutes, but we were able to sleep with ear...

This is the WORST hostel I have EVER stayed in. The kitchen is only big enough for about 4 people, and there's over 100 beds. The lounge is disgusting, the kind of place you don't want to touch anything. The bathroom smells like stale urine. But the worst part is the noise... There is a bar directly underneath which plays...

My room (with private bathroom) was clean enough, though I would have scrubbed the toilet bowl a bit harder. Everything worked, and there was plenty of tea and coffee making stuff. The location is convenient and I did not find it noisy. This probably depends on where your room is. The bed was too soft for me though. You reach...

This was a very disappointing experience. The single room was AUD123 a night, no ensuite bathroom, room dirty, covered in dust, apparently noone has cleaned here in a while. So where the showers, I've never seen anyone cleaning there. Was so gross that I showered with my flipflops on. Rooms will not be made up but trash was emptied after...

Great location, clean suitable facilities. However hotel/hostel is above a pub. Impossible to sleep here with the noise from the traffic (aka raceway) outside, music from the pub and the general noise from doors banging inside the hostel. Oh and the bells from the church! Bring earplugs or if you're a traveller who values their sleep, stay elsewhere.
