we traveled 4 hours to get there and check in girl was rude, i politely asked if there was a problem and she took offence to that reflected in her tone, she had my nsw drivers licence and was looking under another name. Bed must have been a sponge mattress, you rolled into the middle, uncomfortable. The fire alarm on the ceiling flashed all night. And the workmen behind the lot started at 7 am on Sunday morning. I'll be staying out of town next time we visit

Good: Very clean, great water pressure, friendly, spacious Bad: No locker space in room (all taken by other guests, and no association between locker and bed). Shower drying area really small and wet.

Central Canberra

This hostel was in a great position to explore the city of Canberra by foot. Everywhere is easily accessible. Car parking can be organised and isn't far from the hostel. The kitchen is small. There are great water fountains throughout the building. Sharing a male dorm it was very warm masculine smelling in the room. Lights on and off ruined sleep. I guess you get what you pay for.
