What a place. 9 of us stayed 4 nights, and had a ball. Met a lot of diffrent people and enjoyed many a cold beer from the bar. Awesome modern clean facilities and close to town. Debbie and Robert (handsome) run what is possibly the best hostel in Aussie. Felt like one big family. If you go to Port Lincoln... More

Hi Mark, it was great not only meeting you all but spending time with you. All of you were really good fun and I have not stopped talking about you all and what a great week-end you all had. The 6 of you that went out on the Calypso Star could not stop raving about how you caught huge Tuna's... More

Cleanest hostel I have ever been to. In fact cleaner than most 4 star Hotels! The mattresses were very firm and comfortable! And if you are there to swim with sharks it just adds to the whole experience with the shark/nautical theme of the place. And they talked me into taking sea sickness pills (sold at the front desk) which... More

What a blast it was having you stay with us! You made us all laugh with your little jokes and DVD's that you made while staying here. Glad to hear you enjoyed your tours and that you could still watch Jaws on your return even after all the sharks you had seen that day. The girls that were cleaning the... More

I stayed for 4 nights whilst in Port Lincoln for a shark cage dive. The hostel is stunning, very modern and a 2 year old conversion from squash courts!!! The rooms are spacious and kept very clean, I stayed in a 4 share dorm with ensuite bathroom for under £20 per night. The TV lounge is large and fitted out... More

I felt as if we were staying in a 5 star hotel for the price of a Hostel. Debbi the manager was incredible and so very helpful. The Place is very clean and has amazing facilities throughout.

Best YHA we have ever stayed in! Very clean. We stayed in a private for about 5 nights. Had our own bathroom. They have a small bar on the grounds. THIS MEANS YOU CANNOT BRING IN YOUR OWN ALCOHOL INTO THE HOSTEL. There are plenty of bars within a miles walk of the hostel. The manager Debbi was amazing! So... More

This really is one of the best hostels Ive stayed in and deservedly won YHA of the year, along with a number of other awards. Very family orientated - if you're travelling and fancy some home comforts and care then here's the place to come. The owners treat you as a member of the family. Great top notch facilities, by...

The best YHA I have ever stayed in, so clean well maintain excellent kitchen facilities and TV area. Stayed in the twin room and it was great, good storage and a ceiling fan. The staff are all super friendly and always stop for a chat, it's also the best place to stay for the shark diving as well.
