    Quite old and dated, and really cold as there is no heater in the room.

    The room was cramped and the bedding not sufficient for a Tasmanian winter. The whole place felt run down. Overall we felt it was overpriced.

    A cozy and nice place to stay

    Good hostel in caravan park just a block away from the town beach. Showers amd toilets were very clean, as was the kitchen. Rooms a bit austere but OK for a short stay. A friendly and comfy place with a pub, bakery, store and adventure tour places very close by.

    Loved this hostel. Very comfortable and clean. Kitchen was great, large and well-equipped. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Rooms were the standard. Convenient location to Freycinet NP. Just buy groceries ahead of time because Coles Bay is tiny.

    The best place for those who self drive like me have a rest . It's close to wineglass bay and you can easily get to coles bay beach by foot . Don't forget to buy national park ticket!

    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    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment.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.
