New and clean facility. Really cool decor with a shipping container converted to a bar. Perfect place to stay if you are doing the Shark dive. I would definitely recommend staying here. The staff were extremely kind and helpful. Its about a 10 minute walk to town from the hostel.

This was a great place to stay. When we arrived, it was late and we were hungry but the only sit-down restaurant that was open was quite far away and by the time we would have reached it, it would have been closed so the owner drove us there with her super cute little dog! Very friendly and a great... More

We decided to stay here for our Great White diving. This place is immaculate! Great atmosphere and very friendly owners. Love the decor and rooms. Better than some motels/hotels we've stayed at! You won't regret staying here!

Stayed here to go shark diving. Rooms were lovely and very clean - more like a good hotel than a hostel. Staff were really nice. Would definitely stay here again if I go back to Port Lincoln. Was the best hostel we stayed in in Australia (or anywhere else we've been).

We loved our trip to Port Lincoln. The wine, the food and the Sharks!!! The trip was made extra special by the staff at Port Lincoln YHA, especially Debbie. We could not have been happier with our stay. Room was very clean and comfortable with great facilities at hand. We would strongly recommend staying here. Thanks again Port Lincoln YHA

Nicest hostel I've been in. Debbie and Rob, the owners, are great people. Make you feel welcome, comfortable, willing to help out anytime. They even cooked food for me on night (lamb, potatoes, and salad, delicious). Highly recommend staying there if in the area.

We stayed for 3 nights while doing our shark dive. The hostel is extremely clean and staff are very helpful, the kitchen facilities are very good with plenty of crockery available. There is a movie room and small bar, we also took advantage of a local discount deal the hostel had with one of the bar/restaurants. My only reasons for... More

Thank you for saying it is a very clean and welcoming hostel, that is what most of our guests comment on. Robert and I have been in hospitality for 35 years and this is why my standards are so high, it might take a few more years before I can lower my standards but I don't think so. We do... More
