    Great clean hostel close to everything you need in Canberra. Not much going on activities wise and not very social, but a great place to base yourself for Canberra.

    Great hostel! Very large kitchen with good equipment although often not enough tea towels. Rooms are air conditioned and comfortable. Only downside is that they don’t have a luggage storage room (usually standard for a hostel) and you’re forced to pay to usage of a locker once you’ve checked out.

    Canberra YHA is centrally located, which means it's relatively close to many of the key areas in Canberra, including Canberra Centre and Parliament House. The hostel itself is fairly quiet, although the hostel does hold events (which I think could be better advertised). I did quite like the bike rental service provided and the canteen does offer some decent and affordable food (even though their selection was quite limited). Overall, this is a quie and convenient hostel with good facilities.

    Good location, very clean, bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, doesn't have much atmosphere. The bikes for hire are not good quality.

    The Hostel itself is very clean and a nice place to hang out, there‘s not much going on in Canberra so most of the people at the hostel live there long term so when you‘re travelling alone it’s pretty boring. I also found the staff wasn’t really into their job, when I checked out the women was nearly annoyed with me for no reason?

    Strange that the lockers couldn't be locked with a padlock. A little bit dirty, maybe just overpopulated do to bushfires which would be understandable. Strange also that the bathrooms needed key card for entry. Facilities were nice other than that, still more of a family vive place
