great place for an overnight stay near The Canberr
I would stay again, but don't be mean with having to pay penalty rates, and employ staff on weekends

Great Location, but room was directly above pub and main road very noisy!
The YHA was centrally located however our room was directly above the pub which was very noisy and the windows could not close properly. As we were next to the main road it was very noisy and both me and my friend could not fall asleep. YHA please fix that window!

Great location
The location is great. Just a few steps to shops, restaurants and bus stops. Generally clean and devoid of weird smells. Quiet hours strictly enforced.

Great Hostel but kind of pricey
Location, clean, comfy
This hostel has a great location. The rooms are also super-clean, as are the facilities. I just feel that at $40 per night for a dorm room, it's a bit steep. Still the cheapest in Canberra, I suppose.

Great 2 nights stay
Clean, safe, strategic location
Our stay was great. The room was warm and clean. The staff were attentive even though it was a busy time during our stay. The hostel was quiet, so we had a good sleep. Hot water was flowing at every hour of the day. The toilet s and the showers were clean, no long line to access one.
