    Overall, an excellent, modern, large and value for money hostel. Only downer was not being able to check in at 4.55pm with reception despite a phone call just before and therefore could not hire a towel for morning shower in the excellent ensuite.

    I came to the hostel end of December and have stayed until the end of April! Best experience lots of fun people! Also met the people I am travelling with. Definitely recommend the Island Accommodation!

    this was a rip off due to the pricing because of the racing that was on!! $70 more than normal per night can not be justified!!

    The hygiene of this hostel is superb. There is even a lounge where you can spend your night playing some boar games and table tennis if you are not heading to the penguins. The kitchen is also tidy and sufficient to whip up any mains. Most importantly, the staff is very friendly, Kudos to M'leia for offering her help on our short stay there - from transport to itinerary! And also Susan for bringing us to the Koala and to the grocery!:)

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    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment.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