    Aside from being the most well equipped, spacious, clean, well kept hostel I've stayed in, the staff are friendly, helpful, run a bar, seem to know everything about the town and the activities. This is what all hostels should aspire to.

    Excellent hostel, super friendly staff. Me & my boyfriend stayed here for 1 night. Debbie, the manager, was very friendly & helpful. She showed us around the hostel & gave us directions to different places. Our room was comfortable & clean. Overall a great place to stay & we will be coming back here again on our next visit to Port Lincoln!

    Best hostel ever. Great people, great location. You have to visit Port Lincoln and stay at the YHA, well worth the experience.

    Most modern and best hostel in Australia. I have traveled from perth to melbourne, most hostels in Australia are some of the worst i've ever stayed in, and I've traveled a lot of the planet. The YHA at Port Lincoln is the best hostel by far I have stayed at. Great kitchen, cafe, bar, tv room, lounge, place to eat, strong showers, clean facilities, friendly and helpful staff.

    I stayed here for 6 nights - Pt Lincoln is great, even in winter. The YHA is very clean and well run. Deb who runs it is friendly and very efficient. They did all they could to make my stay as pleasant as possible.

    It was simply the best hostel I've stayed at: you couldn't find a friendlier staff and the place is reaaaally clean. I would definitely go there again

    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.
