“Great place to stay”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

This is a great place in an old building that had allways been a guesthouse. The new arrangements are great, comfortable and nicely arranged for a family.
We enjoyed the whale watching close by and the walks along the coast and beaches. Plan a visit to Granite Island from there. Well worth it.

Our family arrived at the Port Elliot Beach house with great expectations given the consistently great reviews and we were not disappointed. We were immediately struck with the contemporary styling, cleanliness and general feel of the hostel. The location of course is fabulous and the balcony offers a wonderful place to sit and take in the amazing sea views. We loved the hostel so much we ended up staying an extra night and will definitely be back. This review however would not be complete without a special mention about the current manager. Her passion for the hostel was evident and she was warm, accommodating, had great local knowledge and really seemed to capture the soul of the place. The staff should be very proud of how they continue to honour the building and the experience for the travellers who stay there.

Our bike group stayed for 2 nights at the Beach House we are mature aged group and found the hostel staff very friendly and welcoming. The hostel is very clean and the kitchen extremely well equipped, plenty of glasses for happy hour after our rides. The rooms were clean and tidy, we had storage for our bikes which was lockable. The position allowed us to walk into the main street for a meal at the local hotel The Royal Family Hotel as well as breakfast at Cockles in the main street. We all had a great time and want to repeat it next year! Thanks to the staff for making it a great stay for our group.

This impressive colonial building is located on top of the hill with a stunningly beautiful view over the bay and the nature reserves with pine trees. It is just perfect to wake up and to see the sea and whales from the balcony! The hostel is very clean. The rooms are well-isolated, so it is quiet. The hostel has a comfortable and safe atmosphere with cosy common rooms, including a fireplace and television. You can watch a wide range of movies for free. There are a lot of books, magazines and games as well. So the hostel is perfect for everyone, even for families with young children. The kitchen is fully epuipped. You even have labels to put on your food in the fridge, so everybody knows from who it is and when this person is leaving. The showers are very hot, which is fantastic. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The best thing to do in Port Elliot is following the walking trails around the bay through the nature reserve/dunes while keeping an eye on the ocean to spot whales and seals/sea lions as well as seeing the local craft shops of the village. Don't forget to try the famous fish and chips at the Flying Fish Cafe on the beach! Or take the SteamRanger Heritage Railway to Victor Harbour (to see the South Australian Whale Centre and to take the horsedrawn tram to Granite Island with a lot of little penguins) or Goolwa.

The Port Elliot Beach House is a superb YHA to stay at while you enjoy the surrounding area. Town is a short walk away and has a supermarket, charcoal chicken joint, pub and one of the best bakeries around. The YHA overlooks the beach and is close to a walking track that follows the coastline. The YHA itself is clean and breezy, the rooms are comfortable and the staff are super friendly. Choose this place when you stay in Port Elliot!

beautiful location, beautiful hostel, very clean, well equipped with also a nice deck and small veggie garden. The dorm are bright, well organized and just 4 beds per room, the common spaces are big and comfortable. A little more expensive than other hostels but it worths every dollars.
