Great location
Great location. Room was small and the table in the room was fragile and ready to break.

Accom good, Breakfast robbery.
The accommodation has central location in Canberra, which is most convenient. Not many other budget options are there, and thus this is certainly to huge advantage to this hostel. At the time of my visit there was on going reconstruction on the third floor, but otherwise the hostel run as usual. The bedroom are standard, which is very good. By myself most appreciated is that the bedrooms are clean, beds are clean, bedding is clean and it was prepared on arrival, and thus most convenient for travellers, who look for safe centrally located shelter. I paid my accommodation via hotels com link, and thus i supposedly paid 25 percent more for what the hostel would charge me if i would pay it directly with them. I also oredered breakfast via hotels com, for 10 AUD. This is complete robbery on both sides. I attach photos of the bowl of cereals with yogurth and spoon of berry preserve, which is what you get ( and small glass of orange juice, with apparent hesitance to small glass even full - it was just bit more than half way full). The hostel tells me, that they charge 6.50 AUD for this, or your other choice is toast with egg OR ham, or raising bun with jam. Hotels com surcharge 35 percent for this, and thus they get responsibility for absolutely insufficient supply - if you ever buy this advertised breakfast, be prepared, you don;t know you get close to nothing. Rather go to Waldorf opposite, and buy breakfast of breadS with egg AND ham for 6.50 ( in Waldorf!).

For the dom room the towel is BYO though the reception happily provided one free of charge when requested (apparently usually has a cost attached). No toiletries supplied.
