Hi Smoua - there are towels in all the private rooms included. If you are in a multi-share room, you can bring your own, or rent one for $2 for your stay. See more information on our website.

Hi Sally There are no age limits at any Australian YHA hostels. Only requirement is that children under 18 can't be accommodated in dorm rooms - private accommodation needs to be booked. Enjoy your visit.
