    Stayed at Phillip Island YHA for a week and it was great! Better than a typical hostel in that it was cleaner, safer, staff were really helpful. Loved it.

    Great place to stay when you have a nice group, affordable accommodation and I like that it is away from the busy crowds in Cowes.

Located in Newhaven, the first town on the island, this stylish, modern, purpose-built backpacker hostel offers funky comfortable lounges, gourmet-style kitchen areas, large balconies and a rooftop deck while still being environmentally friendly. 

    There’s a great café next door for breakfast and lunch. Accommodation includes multi-share and family rooms, some with ensuites, and group accommodation.

    Home to the famous nightly parade of Little Penguins, Phillip Island also offers a host of other attractions and events.
