Canberra YHA
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.

Young at heart
Centrally located meant it was easy to travel to required venues. Minor concerns were the lack of bedside tables & centrally controlled heating/air conditioning made individual room control of temperature difficult. Booking direct is apparently cheaper. Young staff left me feeling my age.

Expensive Hostel
The hostel itself is good. The price is not. For what you pay, the hostel is expensive conpared to other hostels I have stayed in. The location is good. Near restaurants, shops and general location is good. Bike hire within the hostel was quite expensive, this could have been a standard for Canberra but compared to other cities expensive. I just put the higher cost of the hostel itself.
