“Definitely recommend-clean, friendly, well located and great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Immaculately clean, very friendly staff, great value for money, conveniently located right near the pub, supermarket and ferry and there's are nice hike starting just around at the next beach. People suggested to me that Kingscote was bigger so I should stay there but I am glad I stayed in Penneshaw as it has much more charm with everything you need right there. Definitely recommend to solo, couples, friends or family travelers.

Walking distance from the ferry, the room had good clean linen and very well presented, clean & tidy with good airconditioning. Free coffe & tea was nice to see as well.

The meals and common area's was very clean and well set up. The owners were friendly and reliable. Will use this place again and would highy recomend this place. the Island was just so wonderful as well so much to see did not leave enough time, best to alow 3 days to see the island properly.

Have a great stay Steve & Shiela

We arrived on penneshaw with a booking to another place that was incredibly forgotten. The guys managing the hostel were incredibly nice to open up the reception again at midnight. Nice rooms, plenty of space. Clean. A must stay!
