    Best hostel we've stayed in. Super friendly and helpful staff. We travelled as a family and it was perfect with a well equipped play/ toy area, a back yard, high chairs, change tables and a family room with magnificent sea side views. Peaceful. Excellent decor too and well equipped kitchen.

    This is a wonderful place to stay for all age groups, singles, feels totally safe, management lives on site so is quiet, great for sleeping. The location is superb with beautiful Horseshoe Bay a couple of minutes walk to swim in pristine water. The walking and cycling track runs past the YHA. Abundant cafes and two atmospheric pubs. In a nutshell, having stayed in many YHA's in Oz and around the world, I place this one at the top of list, totally recommend a stay.

    Great location above a good swimming beach with surf life savers, great building, with clean facilities. Cool on hot days. Great hosts, friendly, efficient and embracing. I booked for four days and stayed a week.

    As I would just make a tour of approx 2 hours, Steve lend me his bike, instead of renting it out. Great gesture. Had a wonderful Sunday morning bike ride from Port Elliot to Goolwa and back.

    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.
