YHA Port Lincoln is a low cost well established accommodation. It's managed very well and very clean. Is a 15min walk into town. I wont complain about the facilities but the feral company shared there, im going back to hotels. Loved great white shark cage experience but wouldn't go back unless i was cage diving again.

Thank you Brad for your review, our hostel is managed very well and is spotless. You did speak to me about the snoring in your 10 share dorm and I asked if you would like to move into an 8 share which you would have been on your own but you said no. Hotels or Hostels can not stop anybody... More

Debbie who was on the desk was absolutely lovely, she was very accomodating and friendly. The room was spotless, cosy and the bed comfy. Can't complain about a single thing. The bathroom was just as good, very clean and modern.

This was the cleanest hostel I've ever been to! The beds and bathrooms were spotless, the kitchen and tv room were awesome, and the owners were incredible!! I would definitely stay there again. Also, the beach was within ten mins walking as well as plenty of restaurants.

Thank you Brooke that is a very nice review. Robert and I tried to make everything the best, mattresses, large lockers with 4 power points in each with a shelf, bed lights, ensuite bathrooms and airconditioning. Our kitchen has everything that you would need to cook anything your heart desired. Our movie room is fitted with lots of bean bags... More

REALLY important room tip... Why no power points NEXT to the bed? And to cement the idea of badly thought out room design... why can't shower be used without the door to the bedroom being closed lest the potential for the fire alarm being set off? (Signs state as warning) Weird...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hostel. Sorry for not having a power point next to your bed but there are 2 underneath the TV and 2 in the bathroom. If we had not put an ensuite bathroom in your room would you have enjoyed the larger room but not the walk to the common bathroom. You... More

It should be a 4 stars hotel! We slept in a 10 beds room and there where 2 private bathrooms with shower and bed was really comfortable. I suggest... More
