Due to the shared nature of the facilities at YHA properties, YHA requires all guests to provide proof of full vaccination and wear masks in common areas. A safe stay is our top priority so we have enhanced hygiene measures in place, along with social distancing practices. More information can be found here. If you are required to self-isolate or quarantine, please be advised you cannot be accommodated at a YHA property until after this has been completed.

You'll feel at home at the friendly Dolphin Retreat YHA hostel. With its close proximity to the city and beaches, getting around to all the top attractions is a breeze. This town is famous for its dolphins, so don't leave without getting up close and personal with a few!
