Where we joined the YHA - thought it was for yougsters, but no it is for oldies as well. Supersite, shady, wild life everywhere. Nice accomodation (dormitories, rooms, caravans) we had a caravan. Super equipped kitchen, wonderful staff. Guestssuper friendly

Hi John Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad you found our small YHA to your liking. The staff do try to make your stay a happy one. We do have a lot of wildlife here especially the birds and as we are petfriendly we have a few travellers that bring their doggies on holiday. Enjoy the rest... More

We were disappointed by the condition of the cabin and it could do with a good clean. It is great to be able to take your pet to the cabin but shouldn't mean you have to compromise on quality or cleanliness. The bed was hard and uncomfortable, the mattress protector was not fresh and the shower water was hot but... More

Needs a complete overhaul. Also wasn't very clean. Also, not the type of place you want to hang during the day. Did not like having to go outside to use showers & toilets. Wouldn't recommend. A very basic caravan park at best.

We've just returned from a 2 night stay in one of the 2 pet friendly cabins. The cabin was clean but very dated. Had we not had our dog with us then we would of found somewhere else to stay. We couldn't get any channels on the TV from Saturday evening onwards (after reception had closed). On the positive side... More

Worst hostel I've ever been too. The cabins had no heaters, we were freezing during the night and I even got sick. It was smelling cigarette , this was terrible. My clothes smelled cigarettes for the next few days. The people at the reception were rude and unfriendly. I would not recommend you to go there.

Thought I'd have a quick, cheap stop over in Batemans Bay and booked an ensuite cabin. I had trouble just opening the door as it was stuck, walked through cobwebs once I got in, it was so dirty I had to sweep the floor twice, barely any water came out of the shower head, the TV didn't work properly, the...

The caravan park itself is very well kept and clean, the playground, pool and bbq area were clean and tidy, the staff were friendly and helpful. The cabins are very small like a bed sitter and were not like the picture advertised. There was mould in the bathroom and water damage on the ceiling. There were ants and cockroaches running...

Spent 1 nights (booked for 2 but couldn't stay any longer) there in January in one of the 2 cabins on site that were dog friendly. The cabin itself was very small with no separate sleeping area. The place wasn't very clean, the bed was uncomfortable and looked dirty and we'd rather shower on the beach than use the one... More

A fine stop on tour from Sydney to melbourne. Close to the bay, not the newest but very clean and friendly. Tip: close to Peddley Beach, a nice lookout, where you can find Kangoroo in wildlife... Good Pizze by "Sams Pizzeria" at promenade Prices up from 25,- Great kitchen Free WIFI

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are glad you found our Yha to be a clean and friendly place to stay. Like yourself so many people enjoy going to Pebbly Beach where the kangaroos are by the waterside. Sometimes you can get up 20 or more and the birdlife is in abundance as well. Safe... More

I always find that after you speak to a guest re a complaint received about their behaviour that they put a very nasty or negative review on sites. If you were unhappy with the accommodation when you arrived you should have come to the office and it would have been rectified straight away. The pool was only closed for 2... More
