This is a great place to stay cheaply in one of Tasmania's most beautiful areas. It is a basic hostel, but clean and comfortable. We were a group of 6, so we booked out 2 bunk rooms...and that's exactly what they were...just 2 sets of bunks and one chair in the corner. As it is a small hostel, the facilities... More

The YHA is left on his own. There is no heater in the room and we were frozen to death! When asked for extra blankets and pillows we just received one blanket which did not help much. There is a fire place in the kitchen but you must do it yourselve.

We stayed at the yha in the middle of winter, and were greeted with a tiny private room with an old double bed, and the window wide open making the freezing room even more freezing! We were happier to see however that there was a fire in the kitchen, and the facilities seemed clean and useable. Once we started cooking... More

I am a backpacker and I have stayed in so many YHAs and did not consider them as poor but this one was! There was basically no one paying attention to the conditions of communal areas during the day. There were few toilets and showers for too many people and the living room did not have enough space at all.... More

This seems to be the only budget / backpacker place in Coles bay. It's located on a holiday park, and the overall feel was soulless. Our room was clean, though the quilt had some pretty disgusting looking stains, and it was small and basic. The kitchen / lounge area was clean, but quite poorly equipped. There was a wood fire,...

Our experience at Coles Bay YHA was generally positive. There was available parking, the toilets were clean and well-maintained. The same could be said for the kitchen which was also very spacious. The staff were quite friendly too. In terms of its location, it is near to the kayaking vendor, the beach, a grocery store and a tavern/restaurant. It is... More

We recently stayed here in one of the cabins, a two bedroom, spacious cabin. The living/dining area was very big, plenty of space for the kids to play. Great supply of cooking utensils and the kids loved the play area. The only thing I would say would be the Queen bed was a little uncomfortable. Overall a fantastic location, great... More

Great location, right near the beach in Coles Bay (although no views from the windows, boo!). Nice spacious kitchen and 2 separate lounge/dining areas. Very clean. Unlike the previous reviewer I found the staff very friendly and helpful, happily storing my backpack for me while I did the 2-day Freycinet peninsula walk (highly recommended).

First tasmanian stop after we landed from the Spirit of Tasmania vessel. The Freycinet NP is an amazing place, unfortunately we were too tired for the walk to admire the famous Wineglass bay, claimed to be one of the best beaches worldwide (according to the pictures on the web I agree with this). So we recovered on the beach close... More
