YHA was not originately what I expected our accommodation to be, as it was booked for me.
It is backpacker/hostel type accommodation, which was clean and bright. Our room had 2 single beds with all linen supplied and, thankfully an ensuite. It contained tea/coffee facilities, was quite roomy and beds soft and cosy. There was a huge common, fully self contained kitchen with dinning room, a small tv room, common area with loads of games and puzzles for entertaining one self or with friends; and separate bathroom facilities for males and females; Guest laundry containing with 2/3 washing machines and 2/3 dryers using $2 coins. Laundry powder available from reception for $1 a load. This came in very handy.
Overall, staff were friendly and informative.
