    Is a lovely building with good facilities very close to main shops and beach areas. Would definitely recommend it. Staff was very helpful and even accommodated us in one room for 2 nights to save changing rooms for 2nd night. Great welcome.

    Really small beds and rooms but clean though!

    For a family, the Apartment at Port Fairy YHA is really fantastic. Not super cheap, but compared to other Port Fairy accommodation this is great value. And the location is just about the best there is in town! The Apartment is super family friendly with everything you need, and even has its own private outdoor area with BBQ (and cubby house for the kids).

    This is a " must stay experience"! Highly recommended. The manager and staff were very friendly and helpful. We felt at home. Our room was SO VERY quaint. Wished we could have stayed longer.

    A great area. More to see than I thought, I would've loved to have stayed a bit longer.

    The staff were friendly and welcoming. They allowed us to move rooms so that we would have more space and recommended local sites for us to see.

    Overprized! No charme......
    Soeren M January 2016
    Very noisy due both to inconsiderate guests and lots of squeaky doors and very thin walls. Alison and Kadir lovely and very helpful.

    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.
