Reception staff with attitudes. Rooms not cleaned sufficiently. Filthy and ill-equipped kitchen. Not a positive atmosphere.

Reception staff with attitudes, garbage can in room emptied three times in ten days, filthy kitachen. Uncomfortable atmosphere. YHA Canberra overcharded the HI-contracted accommodation price in EUR by 18 AUD.
