    Matress not so clean . Room smelly due to humility. Not enough sunshine into the room or air circulation. Animal friendly very nice. Ensuite very nice. Staff nice!

    Very expensive for a backpack 80 dollars for 2 single beds. I will recommend it for camping maybe, I don't know the prices

    It was not clean and the staff was very functional/robotic. I will not come back

    great location close to Horseshoe Bay, plenty of options for dining needs to have a TV room and better internet facilities

    A very quiet and chilled hostel a short walk from Horseshoe bay, which has a nice beach. The wifi is only in the bar area and isn't great. Stayed in a cabin with a comfy double bed and the staff are helpful about what to do on the island.

    choose your room wisely as most come without aircon and I had ants in my luggage as majority of the walls in the small twin cabins are fly net which had a hole in it. If you don't mind camping but still want shelter this is for you.

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
