    Canberra YHA”

    If, like me, you are a business traveller who hates paying fro things in a hotel room I don't use (even if I don't actually pay for them myself, then this is a good choice. Walking distance from shops, cafes and restaurants. A reasonable basic bar downstairs. The only issue I have with it is (it may have changed now advise you check) they do not store luggage. so if you arrive early, you have to carry your luggage around all day. It's basic, but clean. Canberra hotels are extortionately expensive. I've tried a few, but return to the YHA each tiime.

    I frequently stayed in this hostel when it was YHA because I love the location and the facilites are good. The Village is much the same though I found the new "Goki" system for controlling access to a rooms a lot less convenient than the card system that most places use.
