    This hostel is extremely clean, nice place to stay. Rob and Debi (the couple who run the hostel) are lovely, really friendly people. Debi is a very motherly character which comes with its benefits and its drawbacks. Staying the hostel is like living with your parents - Debi is really helpful and always on hand to give advice, give sea-sickness pills to those shark cage diving, recommend places to go and things to do. Although, she does treat the hostel as if its her home so you get nagged for not washing dishes straight away - even if you're still eating! She hates any small spillages, demands water be dried from around the sink area, moans about shower mats being left on the floor(?!). Lovely hostel overall, but could do without someone looking over my shoulder all the time - I am an adult.

    This is the nicest and cleanest hostel I have stayed at during my 19 months in australia. The owners are fantastic, super friendly, helpful and the way all people in General should be. It was an Amazin stay!

    Loved staying here, facilities are awesome, great kitchen with everything you could want, fab outdoor area with table tennis table, paella cooker, movie room with plenty of games, books etc. Deb and Rob treated us so well providing a DVD player for our room, ideas on things to do and nothing felt like it was too much trouble. What they have done with this building is amazingly well planned and We would highly recommend to all to all to go and stay you will love it!

    This hostel is the best we have stayed at so far and yet we have made it around the continent. Everything on these premises have been thoroughly thought out in great detail by the owners. The kitchen and amenities are outstandingly well equipped. The cleanliness of the place would leave a few hospital ICU green with envy. The two owners diametrically different in temperaments superbly complement each other to make the place as welcoming as it is efficient and clean. A stay in YHA Port Lincoln by any hotel proprietor is bound to give them lots of nifty ideas to emulate.

    In two years of travelling I can safely say this is by far the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in. The hostel is immaculately clean, the facilities top notch and the owners go out of their way to help - even taking me and two others on a guided tour of the town and running us in and out of town when it was raining (definitely walking distance otherwise). Was supposed to stay for two nights and ended up staying for four instead as loved it so much. Highly highly recommend.

    Ratings guidelines

    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.
