this accommodation is for people on a budget. rooms are clean and warm. Shared bathroom but right outside the bedrooms .the location is great with a coffee shop down stairs and only a short walk into the city centre .tram stop and museum at the end of the street. well worth the stay.

Stayed here for 3 nights in July in a twin room. Great location in the centre of town. Room was clean. Relaxed and friendly staff at reception and the travel desk. Easy process (and cheap) to hire squash courts. Kitchen was the only let down - items weren't in great condition but otherwise a great place to stay.

Good location at city centre with free parking provided. Room was clean but a bit on the small side . Heating worked well . Shared bathrooms which caused some problems as often one had to wait to get in.However there was plenty of hot water for a shower.

We stayed in the two bedroom apartment with 6 people. While the sofa bed was uncomfortable, the room and facilities were quite good. Wifi was reasonably priced however they only allow 1 device per docket so don't expect your group to be able to use the same wifi. Close to everything you'd want to see. I recommend visiting the botanic...

Great location for access to the CBD and food. WIFI was a reasonable price and restaurant had great food. Bathroom facilites could have been cleaner but were still a good standard for the price of the room.

Good experience at YMCA. Friendly staff, good service. Excellent free parking facility - very large carpark outside the door which was a huge bonus considering the location. Walking distance to the city centre and opposite the beautiful botanical gardens. We had a large twin room which was warm and comfortable. On the downside it was quite noisy here and the...

Stayed here to be near botanical gardens. Rather noisy but the en-suite room sufficed. Needs a refit. Location and the free parking were the pros. However best to pay an extra $20 elsewhere for better comfort and peace.

Stayed here for a few nights. This is a quiet and clean hostel. Location is pretty good. There's communal areas with a television on each floor which is good as the kitchens are quite small. Our dorm room was very spacious and clean. Would recommend.
