    I arrived early in the morning, they kept my bag for me and suggested a great place for breakfast. Customer service was second to none, they couldn't do enough for me. Room was spotless and lockers were a great size. Great nights sleep. Facilities were perfect and social.

    Debi and Robert run THE best hostel we have ever stayed in around the world (and we've stayed in dozens!). Everything is immaculately clean, the atmosphere warm and welcoming and just the overall experience was great. The fully equipped kitchen and communal lounge/bar areas are a great place to meet other travelers and just relax after a big day out. Our room (a double with access to shared facilities) was spacious and comfortable while the shared bathrooms were always clean. We felt like we were welcomed as part of the family by Debi and Robert and truly hope our paths cross with them again in the future.

    I'm happy that I stayed at this hostel. It's the cleanest, most modern and comfortable where I've ever stayed. The staff is great! Very friendly and caring people who treat you like a part of the family and help whenever they can. Thanks for everything! Leon

    The owners of the hostel are absolutely amazing... So friendly, helpful, insightful and knowledgeable. The hostel is so clean and well maintained.. Excellent value for money, better then hotels I have stayed in, in the past. Can't speak highly enough about it.

    OMG. What a pleasant experience as a first timer to a back packer style accomodation. My Son and I were welcomed like we were family. The owners went out of their way to make us feel safe and comfortable. On our return trip from seeing the sharks they even had a hot meal waiting for us. 😍😍😍 Highly recommended Port Lincoln YHA. Cleaner than my own home. And.... I reckon I have a touch of OCD. 😂😂😂 So glad we chose this place instead of 5 Star accomodation. Felt very comfortable and safe.

    The hostel is great, extremely clean, great facilities available. A large kitchen area as well a nice lounge with a bar, and movie room! Bathrooms are big and clean and were really nice to use. I could not get the wi-fi to work on my phone but that was the only letdown. Staff were brilliant, friendly and very helpful! Worth the money and wound def return.

    Deb was very kind & friendly & so is her husband. They are both always very happy to help. Firm but fair, that's exactly what you need in a hostel & to keep us backpackers controlled. Best part of my trip to Port Lincoln was this hostel :) I had a very loud snoring man so Debi moved me rooms & wants everyone to have a good stay.

    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.
