Reviewed 24 June 2012

Decent place, staff seemed pretty friendly, an adequate Hostel which serves its purpose in a modern and clean way. No reason why I wouldn't go again, wasn't far from the town and the bars (go to the wool shed and get drunk then go on the bucking bronco for free, it's hilarious). There was a communal computer with itunes available where I was able to load up my songs with hundreds of songs for free, which is one of those little things that really makes you feel like your getting a good deal. Don't know if it's still there now though, nevertheless, i'd still go there.

I've stayed here a number of times now and its consistently good.
The dorms are spacious. I've also stayed in ensuite room, which was large and clean. The hostel is big, but secure, clean and fresly decorated. The kitchen and communal area are spacious and well equipped. The reception staff all seem friendly, professional and welcoming

We stayed in the YHA for 5 nights after travelling around Australia for almost 2 mths. We recieved the worst welcome so far since being in Australia. The scottish female member of staff was unapologetically rude and seemed distinterested and inconvienced by our presence, this continued throughout our stay each time we had the misfortune to come into contact with her. We were , however , impressed with the cleaniness of our rooms and hostel in general. The beds were really comfortable and we room was light and airy. Facilites were great and free pancakes in the morning were a great bonus. We were perplexed at the constant reminders of how " lovely" the staff were because most of them were far from lovley and generally miserable!. Its not the best location mainly due to being situated next to a night club that generates a lot of noise.

Great hostel, double rooms with bathroom have a good layout and the kitchen is large and well equipped. Very clean, and the front staff is professional, but really friendly. But as usual noisy, not because people were especially loud, but because of the omnipresent paper walls and similar windows.

Besides this the usual standards of YHA (which we appreciate very much), great washing machines, clean, good computers, friendly staff.

Great job, would definitely stay again.

We recently stayed for 3 nights on our first time tour of Aus. Top notch! We stayed in a private double with bathroom and weren't disappointed - the room was large and airy, very clean, crisp clean sheets. The bathroom again spotless with nice tiles.

The staff and facilities are first class. By Adelaide, we needed to wash some clothes - no problem, a well equipped laundry. We worried that as seniors, we'd have problems but we weren't alone! Working amongst fellow travellers of all ages and nationalities in the well equipped kitchen was great fun.

Couldn't be better located - CBD an easy walk away as were the eateries in Gouger Street.

Well done YHA Australia, we'll be back in a couple of years!

Room Tip: Could be a little noisy at night withh rooms on the side street as the bin lorry comes along in the...
