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...

This is such a beautiful building in the best location in Pt Elliot. I'm from Adelaide and have stayed a here few times now. Gorgeous views from the balcony, clean, nicely renovated and friendly staff. I really think it's the best place to stay on the Fleurieu.

This place in a little hidden gem and would make a perfect stop if your are travelling the area between Melbourne and Adelaide or are on your way to Kangaroo Island! The owners (and their dog) are standing by, taking care of you and everything else for that matter with a smile and even though everything is well sorted, clean... More

A really lovely hostel in a beautiful location. It is extremely well run and looked after. It has the best kitchen I can ever remember in a hostel. Rooms are smallish but the common areas are large and the views from the front balcony are magically - don't miss moonrise (or sunrise if you are up that early). Recommended.

Firstly, I'd like to say that I don't often stay in hostels, because, as everyone is aware, there are some really awful establishments out there, and I now feel that I'm too old (just) and easily agitated to risk losing a full night's sleep. Even if it is on top of 3 bottles of wine... anyway, to the review: Myself... More
