    We had a most enjoyable stay- we were a group of 2 adults and 4 international students and the locality, price and service was excellent.

    The hostel is within walking distance to everything in Penneshaw. The Isola Pizza place is great, but only open in the late afternoon and evenings. Also, note that wifi is hard to come by, the hostel will give 1 hr free for the length of your stay.

    Perfect position. Really comfy beds and knowledgeable host. Would recommend highly. Kitchen could have been a bit bigger but adequate room outside (weather prevailing).

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. Also a mine of information about the island. I had a wonderful time.

    The staff were very helpful and friendly and the hostel is in a good location, close to the ferry and beach. It was very quiet (almost empty), the kitchen is in good condition and clean, but the room was a bit damp and smelt funny. I even had a few bugs crawling on me in the night.

    So called double room was an airless, dark cubicle at the back of the building. Extra bunk beds took up all floor space. No one in their right minds would spend one night there let alone the three for which we were booked. We stayed elsewhere. Manager unhelpful.

    it seems that hostel is being let run down due to its auction in next few months. Location is awesome

    Hostel clean and comfortable. We were able to use the facilities all day on the day we were leaving and leave our bags which was brilliant. We visited when it was a bit cooler, if very hot would be uncomfortable as no fans in the room we were in.

    Close to ferry. Good food options. Grocery store next door. Tour buses will pick up at hostel. All good!

    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.
