This YHA has very friendly owners right from the word go. It is comfy, immaculately clean, there is a decent movie room to chill out in and free wifi/computer use. There is also a shuttle bus to/from the airport for only $10. Bit of a shame that Port Lincoln is so far away from anywhere and only a small town... More

We know that most guests come to Port Lincoln to go Shark Cage Diving but we have so much more to offer here. A few Couples that have just stayed with us for 6 & 7 nights said they will be back cause there is still plenty to do here. It is a pity that most guests only allow 2... More

It's basically run my two great people, one of which is so OCD, she'll book your cabs even before you know you need one. They pride themselves in how they run the place, and have been doing it for years.

How nice ! Thank you, I am not OCD it comes from 40 years in hospitality and I know I can drive some guests crazy, but the cleanliness is what most guests like about our hostel. I do ask some of the younger ones if they miss their Mums and I say "Just when you thought you left your Mum... More

I'm not to sure about the Nan bit? You could have said Mum !! I know I like everybody to get the same experience when they check in and everything is spotless. If one person leaves dishes all over the sink and stove the rest follow. Some mornings I laugh as guests have put their whole quilts with their sheets... More

I was amazed at how accomodating the staff were. I don't usually write reviews but the manager of the property ( i can't remember her name) went above and beyond. i had a private room which was great. I've stayed in a few hostels around the world, some good, some bad, this one definitely sits on my good list.

We try to think of it as affordable accommodation, we don't like the word Hostel it is so much more. People still think of a Hostel like back in the 80's or 90's, boy have things changed. We try to offer the best of everything here and go above and beyond to help our guests with anything. The Shark Cage... More

Excellent and clean with the two owners, Deb and Rob, who know their stuff and really go out of their way to ensure all guests are looked after! (Deb even remembers everyone's names!). Comfortable dorms and an immaculately clean kitchen with great equipment.

I know CLEAN should be my middle name ! I try to remember most peoples names but gets a bit hard with 71 guests in house. We are very excited about what 2016 has to hold for us.

This was one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. The staff were super friendly, the hostel was very clean and had great facilities. The chill out areas were an awesome addition to a hostel that will feel like home.

We friend and I stayed in a twin room as the rest were booked out. Great bed and ensuit with TV. The lady was great too, we arrived late so she called me and told me how to get in - very easy. Coming back to go shark diving again (no sharks that day) and will definitely stay there again.
