So it's in a pretty handy location about 5-10 minutes from the main train station and right near some restaurants, the heating and bed were okay, the price is reasonable, security is good, the kitchen looked fine but I didn't use it. Reception staff were very nice and helpful. The negatives: It's just a functional place to stay with no... More

Travelled to the Illawarra for a weekend with the kids. All motels were $140 per night up. Tried the YHA and took a motel room with double bed and bunk bed for $100 per night. There was a kitchenette and the room was new and clean. I will certainly go back there again if/when I go to Wollongong again.

Difficult to locate, Look for the university. Strange set up of hostel mixed with uni halls of residence and a confusing layout. Large lounge but no atmosphere and cramped dorms but the biggest bathroom I ever saw in my life. Two kitchens with a fridge for every room. Staff somewhat inept but nothing that won't stop you getting your head... More

I was in Wollongong for a sports tournament with our club.It was a short 10-15 walk at most to the Stadium which was a good warm up. All I needed was a room with a comfy bed, a kitchenette and a functional shower. Fitted all of our needs and there were a number of inexpensive cafes nearby. There was a... More

While this a good value place to stay at, I just have to say that those heavy fire doors kind of spoil it for us. We stayed for 2 nights and while we hoped that first night was just exceptional we were proven wrong. I have no idea why the students staying here can't at least decently close the door... More

This YHA is located in the city centre, although if it is the beach you are after it is a good 10-15min walk away. The room was tiny with bunk beds for a twin bedroom, the en-suite was the smallest I have ever seen. It was very hot when we got there and unfortunately we were unable to bring the... More
