    You get what you expect. Nice: complimentary continental breakfast.

    The management is very kind that gives us a free drive to another city on the Island as there is only a limited public transports on Island. The hostel has free food for you to cook your breakfast but some foods reached the expiry date for long time....

    Free breakfast with 5 different cereals! Great view to the ocean.

    A very friendly husband and wife team run this hostel. Very accomodating. The walls are thick enough so it's hard to hear people next door, and the location is ACE! Rooms are very spacious and well fitted out with chairs and/or couches. A great place to stay on a great island!

    Lovely view and garden. A bit noisy at 5am because of the trucks going to the ferry. However, if you are catching the ferry this YHA is an ideal place to stay.

    目の前に美しい海が広がり、フェリー乗り場から近い便利で静かな場所です。 6人部屋とのことでしたが、実際は4人部屋と2人部屋が2つあり、来客が少ないので、殆ど一人で使わせて貰いました。 朝食にパンやミルク、ジャムをいつも用意してくれました。 スタッフは凄く親切で、あまりにも快適なので、予定を変更し、10日間過ごしました。 時間ある限り、ここでユックリされることをお勧めします。

    Comfortable, homey, friendly, well located, great view.

    A light breakfast is included in the cost of your room. The hostel is walking distance from the ferry terminal, even with luggage, and day tours can be arranged. Sally and Bill are very friendly and helpful, and attract friendly people - the Happy Hour on Saturday night was testament to that! We had a lovely stay once again and will definitely go 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.
