    Was a very nice hostel in a great location. However not very social and not a lot of backpackers- more of a safe, clean, quiet family friendly place.

    Really good location, spacious kitchen and very clean well kept rooms with large storage lockers. We arrived at 6am but they kindly allowed us into our rooms anyway (6 hours before check in). Next door bar music can be loud so recommend ear plugs.

    Only stayed for one night, so can't comment on all the facilities. The rooms were kept nice and tidy, as were the bathrooms. They had events on every day, which was a hike up Mount Ainslie the evening I stayed. Very enjoyable and other guests were very chatty.

    This was a well-run hostel. Friendly staff, a nice big kitchen, clean bathrooms. The atmosphere was decent, but not anything particularly unique. Really good location in the downtown area, with walkable distances to many restaurants & shops.

    Only stayed for one night but hostel had everything that was needed. Location was great, kept quite clean,Kitchen/ Bathrooms were good. You could hire a bike to ride around town for $10 half a day which is what I did. No complaints

    I arrived at Canberra City YHA after an amazing stay in another hostel in Sydney and the contrast between the two hostels was quite dramatic. The overall atmosphere of the hostel feels very dead and prison like. If you are here for a bed, you've got it. If you're here for an experience, you'll miss it. The toilets were really cramped, as well as damp and dark. I'm glad I only stayed for one night.

    Not clean and very noisy, although I was put into a room at the front over the bar, so it could be quieter out the back. Heaps of dirty dishes and tables in the eating area. Bathrooms were ok. Not a great feel to this hostel, I'll stay elsewhere next time.
