Great hostel to start off in. Just moved to Brisbane and the YHA was a great starting point, great facilities and meet lots of cool people. The guys on the desk are helpful and knowledgeable. The bar is a great asset and they do some good deals which vary every day. Not many taxi drivers seem to know where it... More

I stayed at the City YHA after 7 weeks of travelling as the end of my Australian experience. It's a really nice place, the rooms are quite small but clean, bathrooms were clean as well. Loved the rooftop terrace! The kitchen seemed quite chaotic but big and well equipped! The YHA is very conveniently located to some nice bars and... More

This is such a nice hotel if you are looking for something affordable and relaxing. In the centre of the city of Sydney, perfectly located to restaurants and entertainment. Close to public transport which is fabulous. Bathroom is not located in your room but a short walk around the corridor. Excellent facilities such as pool, restaurant, lounge, kitchen and roof...

This hostel is clean and tidy. They have staff manning the kitchen throughout the day/evening to ensure that it is kept clean. At times the kitchen can be very busy but they have many sinks, cooking stoves, toasters, cutlery and utensils. There is a fabulous view across the city from the roof top terrace where you can eat your food... More

Would definitely stay here again. Stayed in a triple room with two friends and had a nice time. The hostel is quite a long walk from the CBD and you would need to get the train to go out in the Valley but it's a good location for the Southbank which has lots of cool stuff to do. The bathrooms... More

This hostel is very good although you pay for it. All YHA hostels are clean and well run and this is no exception. The location is good and the staff very friendly and helpful. The kitchen is well equipped and clean. Recommend.

Stayed in a 4 bed dorm for 5 days which was clean and comfortable. A minor complaint was that my room backed onto the train lines which meant I was woken early some mornings. The rest of the hostel was also kept very clean. The kitchen was very big and well stocked though did still get very busy at peak... More
