Stayed here for 5 nights and really enjoyed our stay. We had fresh towels everyday and our bed was made nicely for us. The toilets were also cleaned everyday and it was pretty quiet during the night. The owner and the staff were so friendly and did their best with everything we needed!! We will definately stay here again :)

Spent 2 nights at the YHA and was left feeling a bit underwhelmed. The kitchen is tiny and in all honesty the whole place is in need of a face lift. There is also no lockers or storage in the rooms. On the plus side there is free WiFi and I found the TV room to be always quiet so... More

This YHA is very well located. The Salamanca markets are close by, as are every sort of shop you could want. There did not seem to be a lot of people staying there when we were there, which is probably just as well. The kitchen is very small, and I think that if more than a couple of people were... More

Stayed at this hostel due to the usual standard of YHA hostels being reasonably good. Arrived late at night and was seen to by the out of hours receptioinist. Got to my room which was too small for the amount of people in it, there wasn't any storage or lockers, so everyones bags were strewn all over the room and... More

I stayed in a dorm in the YHA for three nights. This place is really clean. There are plenty of toilets and shower rooms and there is a nice lounge room that you can sit and use the internet. The kitchen, though, is too small and of course it is always packed. The YHA is very big and therefore it... More

We stayed here with our kids. The room was small but had everything we needed. I know some people have mentioned noise but we all slept well. The hostel is in a brilliant spot, so close to the salamanca markets and was amazingly good value.

This hostel was pretty good for the price. I stayed in a 6 bed, all female dorm. The rooms, bathrooms and common areas were cleaned daily, showers had good pressure, laundry was fine. The bathrooms were separate to have one toilet, sink and shower which was also nice. The staff was very friendly and keep to help. The kitchen was... More

The YHA is cheap and that is why I picked it up. So you don't expect to get luxury rooms or very comfortable beds. Nothing really particular in there except that the kitchen is really really tiny. So you'd rather be early or late to have your meals because it gets quickly crowded. Showers are pretty good. Staff is nice.

We had a "Quality" (their classification) standard room with shared facilities. What we got: small room, queen sized bed, bedside tables, overhead and reading lights, clock radio, heater, open shelving and a mirror behind the shelving (who's idea was that?). What we didn't get: carpet, fridge, sink, tea making, space. There was no noise from the pub - the karaoke... More

This hotel is well placed. It is in the CBD and the waterfront is a block away. But that means it is beside a main road and main road traffic. Not as busy as Sydney, but enough to disturb sleep. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the tariff is OK for the location. The place is very clean. Non-suite... More
