McLaren Vale Backpackers

It looks like you want to travel to somewhere we don’t have a YHA hostel. We’ve partnered with properties around Australia to ensure we don’t stand in your way of exploring.

This property is not a full YHA hostel but YHA has negotiated a special rate for YHA members.

It does not accept YHA accommodation pack vouchers (ePacks and Dreamcatcher) and the services and facilities provided may vary from those of YHA hostels.

McLaren Vale  is  a friendly backpacker hostel located in the heart of wine country, surrounded by gentle rolling hills covered in vine yards and dotted with charming cellar doors. Foodies will love the range of exceptional restaurants, while romantics will delight at the picturesque countryside, with winding lanes perfect for a relaxing cycle. Bike hire is highly recommended to explore the region.  There are over 50 cellar doors in the region with plenty of opportunities for wine tasting and the opportunity to stock up on a few bottles of Shiraz or Cabernet from local wineries.

The hostel is located on the main street of  McLaren Vale and is close to supermarkets and transport. This hostel is best suited for travellers considering working in Australia and can provide assistance with getting jobs locally. The accommodation is in mixed multishare rooms and offers outside entertainment areas  to relax and meet fellow travellers.
