My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at the Pt Elliot YHA and enjoyed every moment. We were looking for a relaxed getaway by the sea and the location was perfect. I grew up in Adelaide and have fond memories of visiting this part of South Australia from childhood, but I hadn't visited for at least 8 years so... More

We really enjoyed our nights stay at the Port Elliot hostel. The management and staff are professional and helpful. The room was clean and neat, though small. We enjoyed relaxing in this well renovated heritage building in Port Elliot, where you can walk everywhere, the beaches, the shops and restaurants. I highly recommend the hostel for a long or short... More

Couldn't have asked for a better experience. The hostel is in a great location, right next to a lookout over the ocean, some walking paths, a nice beach, and walking distance to all downtown food and shops. I went surfing near victor harbor one day (about 15 minute drive) and middleton beach the other day (about 5 minute drive). Surf... More

A very elegant and beautiful hostel in town. Easy to go to everywhere and the view on the balcony was so good. I just cannot say what is specific best of it. You know. Just so comfortable, so eased in the living room. Historic site with a map of Australia maybe a hundred year ago.

The house itself is amazing, the owners are super helpful, the view from the hostel are just breathtaking. The rooms are big enough and the bathrooms are very clean. The price is very reasonable so I would definitely recommend this hostel to all travellers.

An engaging mix of surf beaches, historic towns and whales cavorting offshore. It is here we find Port Elliot. It is set back from Horseshoe Bay, an orange-sand arc with gentle surf. It has miles of wonderful walks, and the Norfolk pines seem to reach for the sky. I took all this in – for until my travels back to... More

An absolute delight! I already miss it. Has such a nice vibe...spacious, clean, well decorated- a real beach house feel. My room had views out to the ocean and I could hear the waves at night. Port Elliot itself is such a great town, fantastic cliff top walks just meters from the hostel and nice restaurants just down the road.... More

This YHA Beach House is a beautiful, clean and friendly place to relax. I stayed three nights and enjoyed the walks to the various beaches for sunrise and sunset and long walks. It's only 5k to Victor Harbor for a nice hike around Granite Island. Try some great snacks or meals at the Port Elliot Bakery, Cockles or Hotel Elliot... More

As hostels go, this place is in a different league. The rooms and facilities are above average for a hostel, the couple who run it were really nice and helpful (especially given we turned up late after getting lost en route, but without complaint from them), but the best thing is the location, with gorgeous views over the bay and...
