    Port Lincoln, on the southern tip of the spectacular Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, is an adventure paradise. Whether it's shark cage diving, swimming with the very interactive sea lions or maybe a surf or a swim. Land lovers will find a choice of national parks to explore and there are miles of secluded beaches. Port Lincoln YHA is an amazing hostel with incredible design features that will have you wanting to take photos of every wall.  With a mix of spacious multishare and very comfortable twin/double and family accommodation. Enjoy the bar/café and outdoor BBQ and deck.  Fantastic photo opportunities with indoor replica shark and cage. Easy walking distance to centre of town, beaches, local pubs and shops.

    • This was my fourth visit at this brilliant hostel, as with my first visit, I didn't want to leave! Debi and Rob are so helpful, kind, funny and very generous. They truly love what they are doing and take so much care in every detail to make a guest feel at home. This is with no doubt the best hostel I have stayed in. Having travelled around the world for two years, I have stayed at many hostels, this one exceeds a guests expectations! The hostel itself, their customer service and tourist information, along with their local knowledge made my stay an unforgettable experience. It was a joy to watch how they went above and beyond the call of duty, big thumbs up for Debi and Rob. You are both amazing hosts and I will definitely come back and bring my partner along as well.
