Coles Bay YHA
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

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 price. We will be back!

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).

The hostel is the only one in coles bay. It s located very close to a beautiful beach ( try to do the kayak tour, I missed that one..) The hostel has all normal facilities. It is ok, relatively clean and has a kitchen and showers. price is ok too if you stay in a dorm.

The staff however doesn t really care, are not trying to help you out of help you look for a different location if they don t have vacancies. They were very excited about the fact we reheated a meal in the microwave after checking out. Shame on us! they almost charged us for another half day.

So, it s the only place to stay in colesbay , have no expections about service and you ll enjoy your stay in colesbay anyway because of the beautiful area.

Coles Bay is a fairly remote spot. The Caravan Park and units are behind the small grocery shop, take away and pub and they serve the whole community of about 200. The locals are very friendly and most helpful. A lot of people only stay a night and do the walk up to the lookout over Wineglass Bay which is really worth it.
We found the baic unit we stayed in clean, functional and fairly good value for money. There is a laundromat on site, and its very close to the beach.

We stayed in a chalet in this Youth Hostel/Caravan Park in November 2010. The chalet was claen and well presented with adequate cooking facilities, fridge and TV. There is a very nice covered outdoor eating area adjacent to the car-space. We stayed for 3 days and found no fault with this accomodation. It is not high luxury but is very good for whta it is.

No A/C but close to the grocery store (a small one for the small town) and a few restaurants. The kitchen was a decent size but the common area was not. It was clean if not a posh hostel and good for the budget traveller.

My husband and I booked a double room and ended having a 6 share dorm to ourselves which was spacious but, as all of the other rooms were full (with families), the place wa sa bit loud. The paper-thin walls meant hearing not only voices but every footstep both inside and outside.

The kitchen is well-equipped and the deck/porch area is a nice touch but sadly, the bathrooms just aren't up to scratch. They are clean but less than functional with very little water pressure and virtually no hot water - I wasn't even able to wash my hair during our stay.

If you are visiting Coles Bay and need a budget option, it will do but if you have a few more dollars, I'd keep looking.
