Very convenient do around in town. Bus stations are in walking distance. The hotel is nice and quiet.
Canberra YHA was good except some man staff of front desk.
10 minutes walk from Jolimont centre, great for commuter on a budget. The common areas are clean.
No lock on the locker, no socket near the bed.
The kitchen is pretty big. Lounge area for relaxing. Good location, close to civic and paid-parking. After 5:30 there's off-street parking near YHA otherwise the closest parking would be Target parking which charges $2 for 1 hour, 4 for 2 hours, 6 for 3 hours and $10 for 4 hours etc.
Terrible design of the bathroom. With doors banging on each other and hand dryer so closer to the sink that by just standing there you would trigger the hand dryer. Hardly any knives in the kitchen. Was reported to the reception but nothing was done about it. The bed light for individual bed in the dorm is a joke because if you turn it on at night trying to do your things, it will light up the whole room and other guests might have a problem with how bright it is and ask you to turn it off as they can't sleep. It's that bright! It's amazing how facilities like this are installed when obviously they do not work. Everyone seems to use the lift. The reception could have done a better job suggesting that if guests are not carrying stuff they're welcome to use the stairs, I try to use the stairs when I can, to be more environmentally friendly, you know, since YHA claims to be an environmentally responsible organisation. The lift can take ages to come anyway, and the highest level is level 3. All in all, I wouldn't say it's met my expectations of a YHA. This is easily the worst YHA I have stayed in Australia-wide. Being the only backpackers in Canberra means no competition and people get lazy with that. I stayed there for two nights and moved to a cheap airbnb room that's only a few dollars more expensive than the dorm bed, but then you have the room all to yourself and don't need to worry about parking if you have a car. Would really need some improvement.
Room was clean and relatively new.
