They did not replace bed linen. I found there are new blood stains in the sheets in the middle of the night. The blood mark looks very new and it did not look washed. This means they did not change bed linen in my room after another guest used the room

I didn't like the service at reception. No welcome, no smile, curt and mumbled questions. Didn't offer a towel when he knew I hadn't got one. No help with bag up stairs, I am lame. Altogether a complete lack of people skills.

We couldn't get the room warm, even with the heater on max. This heater wasn't working well, there were no small extra heaters available and the staff member never came to the room to inspect the issue. The toilet and shower weren't clean - as a matter of fact the shelf in the shower was disgusting and the toilet had clearly been forgotten

Noisy room on street front. Dirty kitchen because some don't wash, dry and put away. Overpriced compared to YMCA in same street. Ensuite bathroom too small.

The staff were helpful. The music was annoying in the lounge as we were watching a movie. The bathrooms were not up to standard at all and needed to be cleaned more regularly. Will not be staying again.

Comfortable and friendly place

Pros: Warm, comfortable, convenient
Cons: Showers
Location: Close to Arts Centre, Art Gallery, Botanical Gardens and downtown
I had an ensuite room at the YHA, and it was very clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly, and brought up a free-standing heater when there was a problem with the central heating, before I even realised there was a problem. The only issue was that the shower had a pretty weak stream of water, but it was hot and consistent. The location is great, and I would definitely recommend it and stay there again.
