Nice little hostel, well located, quiet
Liam B. (August 2014)
Nice hostel at a good location, close to the beach and there are a few shops close by.
Christine H. (March 2014)
Huge common areas and easy, fast access to local stores and pub. Very basic dorm rooms that are relatively spacious.
j E. (March 2014)
Fine place to stop briefly, could be a little cheaper for what you get but saying that the only thing cheaper in the area was pitching a tent and if you're from interstate that's not really an option.
Raeoni M. (March 2014)
We've spent just one night on one of their cabins. It was pretty nice.
Thiago P. (August 2013)
A great place to start your Mountain experience.
Audrey D. (April 2013)
Nice hostel. Close to the beautiful Wineglass Bay and the Freycinet National Park. Clean Bathrooms and kitchen.
Frederik D. (April 2013)
Favorite spot in Tassie. Will come back for sure.
VERONICA S. (January 2013)
Great location in a beautiful spot.

Situated in the Coles Bay Township, 1km from the Freycinet National Park, the Iluka Backpackers YHA is over the road from Muirs Beach. On-site backpackers facilities at the hostel include tavern/bistro and bakery. There is also a playground for children.
Freycinet National Park is one of the east coast's most popular destinations with secluded beaches, spectacular scenery, red granite mountains and clear blue water. With so much on offer guests at the hostel can undertake some of the many and varied activities including bushwalking, swimming, fishing, kayaking, photography, oyster farm tours, boat charters and scenic flights.
The walk to the outlook over Wineglass By is challenging for older folk but very nice. The lighthouse at Tourville is easier. Bring food unless you want to eat in the shops at the YHA area which are quite pricey.
Explore the Tasmanian Wilderness from the deep south across to Strahan, the World- Heritage Cradle Mountain and Lake St Clair.
Experience one of the world's top 10 beaches and the best of Tasmania's East Coast.
