    Very friendly staff and you can find all you need in this hostel. Just notice that the beds are not wide and you have just 30 min free wifi.

    Very friendly, was nice having a self contained family room. Easy walk to shops/iga.

    With a little bit amount of money it can be really nice place to stay. Some things are just old and used

    Low key and comfy place to stay in a relaxed town

    Staff were great - so friendly and helpful! Gave me a great recommendation to go to Tower Hill. Good facilities and location, however it was too cold - main area of the hostel was not warm at all. I do believe this was due to the fact that it's off season though and no one else appeared to have been staying at the hostel before me and a couple others arrived. I bet this place is great during warmer weather.

    Having been the 3rd (YHA) hostel we've stayed at in Australia, I expected much more than we received. What I had hoped would be a beautiful stay in a period home was desperately lacking charm; not to mention cleanliness, towels, heat (heater was provided but didn't, work. You could see your breathe in the kitchen-cold!h but most - outside door locks. Port Fairy YHA was not my fairy tale accommodation, but more like a bad dream! I will not return.

    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.
