    Canberra City YHA is conveniently located close to bus stops, shops, eateries and tourist attractions. A variety of people stay at the hostel and the facilities available are quite adequate.

  • Single

    Location, friendly staff, elevator.

    $100 for a room with no sink, let alone no bathroom is much too expensive for one person in a youth hostel. The $100 room is huge - big enough to fit a shower/sink/toilet unit and then it would be worth $100 a night. This room as is should be no more than $50-$60 a night for a one-person stay. The room is in a noisy area/ noisy corridor.

    My room was bright and I enjoyed the tea-making facility. I also used the kitchen. The YH was central.

    However, the pool (one of the main reasons for choosing the YHA) was cold. And the cafe/restau. service was very slow for a cup of coffee and muesli. The room was really basic without own toilet/shower ..... when I went after Canberra to Melbourne and stayed in Best Western, the price was lower! And there was a heated pool, and all facilities in the room. I doubt if I'll stay in YHA again, too expensive.

    only the central location

    Much too expensive for the standard of room. It was noisy, without any comfort or decoration, with not even a towel provided. I have stayed at YHA's all around the world for 30 yrs and cannot recall feeling less satisfied with the value for money. I was travelling solo this time, and I guess the private room, at $110 per night, may have been better value for a couple.

    Not much to like - This used to be a really nice place when it was owned by the waldof - now its a YHA its gone to the dogs

    The whole place is pretty dirt as it is cleaned by backpackers... They allow anyone to stay there and don't police behaviour which meant I had to deal with a rampant alcoholic in my room and 'party' of severely drunk Australians being extremely loud all through the night and into the next day. Complaints to the management made no difference, nor did all the cameras they have around NEVER AGAIN

    space and confortable bedroom, clean bathroom, pleasant home

    a bit noisy cause of thin walls

    The location

    That I had to change rooms every day and that I did not share any room with my friends even if we had booked together online 2 weeks in advance!

  • Couple

    The location was great, right in the heart of Civic, there is free parking out the back after noon on saturdays and all day sunday. Quiet, with a great view from the top balcony. Secure (although we stayed in a private room), with clean working amenities.

    You get what you pay for. There was no ensuite bathroom, but then the private room was half the price of any hotel in Canberra cbd. The room card did not work in the womans bathroom-it was a hassle to have to go down to reception to get the card fixed.

    Clean simple accom. Great cafeteria for breakfast, coffee and price. Staff fixed small problems immediately.

    Local v early garbage truck nearby a pity due to brief loud noises then when sleeping

    Very helpful staff, fresh sheets and bedding included

    There was a party going on outside the window, which was noisy, but it was within my expectation of a youth hostel. My fellow room maters were surprisingly quiet, which was great.

  • Single
    7.8

    There was a lot of noise, (singing, stomping, chanting, guitar) from around midnight till 5 or 6 am. I found it very difficult to get a decent sleep. There were also 2 new roomates getting settled into the room very late at night and disrupting myself and the other roomate who were already asleep.

  • Single

    location was perfect

    no towels in room and I had to hire one for $2 from front desk, no knob on hotwater tap in shower and still missing when I left 3 days later, shower pressure was poor and water luke warm to cold, room was too hot as air con was operated from front desk and not monitored,
