Bang for your buck.
Everything you'd expect from a hostel of this price and then some! Wasn't expecting the pool/sauna!

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.
