    Relaxed atmosphere, friendly and helpful on-site manager, great beach views, easy access to nearby shops, restaurants, Mt William National Park and regional centre of Scottsdale, Bridestowe Lavender Farm, wineries, Ben Lomond National Park great drive up even in early spring when patches of snow can still be observed

    Beautiful location. Very friendly and relaxed place. Large common room with views over Bass Strait. Highly recommended.

    Great lounge/eating area with outside deck and views. Really helpful friendly warden - went out of his way to get us a refund when I couldn't make it work.

    We loved our family room with ensuite, first time I have ever stayed in a hostel that had a TV and fridge in the room, which was awesome. Great location, awesome views, very friendly and helpful warden. Took us to an unusual and interesting location. When we came to Tassie 12 years ago there were many more hostels, its a shame to see only three YHAs now in the whole state, I wish there were more.

    It's a quiet hostel with a nice owner. Not a party hostel at all. Clean and spacious rooms. Good price

    Not many people were around so we had a lot of space to ourselves, despite the fact that the place is near to Bridestowe and not too far from Hollybanks Tree Adventures. The service was very helpful and the place was clean and comfortable.

    This is set in a lovely location and we had a double bed in a dorm room. There were 4 others staying. The kitchen facilities and common room were very good with plenty of space and facilities. We only stayed one night but there was lots to see and do and I would liked to have stayed longer. I would recommend this YHA.

    The family room was a killer deal for the 4 of us. Best place to rest before heading towards the wine country.

    Dust in several areas of my room. Room seemed to be made almost entirely of a kind of pressboard that provided little sound and temperature proofing. Room fire alarm consisted of the base only no visible battery or other workings. Noise from other tenants ( a family with hyperactive kid/s ) carried through the wall, as well as the sound of "tinkling" in the toilet next door.

    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.
