Canberra City YHA

Canberra City YHA is centrally located in the heart of Canberra. The property is modern, secure and well equipped. YHA nows offers secure exclusive group areas on two levels of the hostel. After recent renovation work, they will now have secure sections on each floor, sleeping between 65 and 80 people in a mix of rooms. These areas will have secure swipe card access only for groups and include male, female and disabled bathrooms and at least 2 leader’s rooms.


Rooms are located off a central corridor and your group will be assigned consecutive rooms to keep your group together (subject to availability). All rooms within the building require swipe keys for access and a duplicate set can be provided for leaders to access all rooms allocated to your group.

Group members are accommodated in comfortable four-share or eight-share dormitory style rooms. Each room is equipped with lockers, individual reading lights and a desk. Bed linen is provided, however we request that students bring their own towels (can be hired if arranged prior). Communal bathrooms are conveniently located on each level of the hostel.

Canberra City YHA offers full catering for all groups with meals served in Bytes Café located on the ground floor of the hostel. The café seats up to 50 people at one time, groups over this size will need to stagger meal times. YHA provides for dietary or religious needs.
