I travel a lot and usually stay in nice hotels or private apartments… And that was our plan this time too when we visited Port Lincoln last November for white shark diving. But when we arrived there - tired after a long drive and long after dark - we discovered that our booking was for the next weekend! And it... More

Wow that was a very nice review! Everybody that stays with us has spoken about the Towns people saying how they all go above and beyond. I like taking our guests down town or picking them up from the bus when I can. I am glad that you all enjoyed your stay with us and I bet Naomi enjoyed her... More

After travelling Australia for the last 11 months I've stayed in quite a few hostels... But this is by far the cleanest, coolest and best hostel yet! Spending 3 nights here was awesome and if it wasn't from having to go home, I would've stayed here much longer. From organising airport picks up to helping me arrange my next hostel... More

Toby there will always be a bed for you! It was a great week this week with so many beautiful, happy people staying with us, that is what makes the atmosphere here. Every body talking about the shark tour to sandboarding and exploring our National Parks with Richard, he is amazing and knows all the best spots. We hope the... More

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.
