The facilities are very good but isn't the best place to socialize. The prices are are high and everything you charge you. No rooms to lugagge, necessary to pay lockers.

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.
