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.

Great hostel, very nice people, and very well kept. Deb helped us out with figuring out things to do in our two non-diving days. We ended up going fishing and exploring the National Park, which was great too. Awesome place, would definitely recommend. One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in.
