    This is a place for long-term residents, not for other travellers. The atmosphere was not very friendly and open-minded.

    Beach access, table tennis, pool table, beach volleyball, big outdoor area to hang out all makes for a fun atmosphere. Mostly long term guests working but a very friendly place to come to. Alban is really great with all guests new and old.

    A very relaxed hostel in a beautiful setting

    A lovely location and friendly staff and other backpackers made my stay very enjoyable. A very idyllic location

    Good for youngsters to stay, for couples, maybe not so good. But overall the friendliness of the staff wins you over.

    The experience is based on the people whom I met during my stay. There were many really nice people using the hostel while on working visas. Obviously, the atmosphere will depend on who is there when you are, but I really had happy times there. Everyone gets a small storage box, with cutlery and crockery in to use for his/her stay, so there's no need to port a load of eating kit around. The only major gripe is it's impossible to move around upstairs quietly: the floorboards creak a lot, no matter which part of the floor one tries.

    To noisey, other people staying were up making noise until 4am was not good

    My friend and I loved our stay here, wished we could have stayed longer! The place was tightly maintained with already good facilities. Would totally recommend!

    Right on the beach, really spacious kitchen, clean bathrooms, didn't have one down fall. Thanks for the lovely stay :).

    I booked a dorm of 4. No one else was there so had the room to myself. Very clean, great location and great friendly staff.

    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.
