Thanks for everything. Enjoyed my stay. I had just come off the heysen trail it was pouring with rain. I was smelly and looked like something the cat would drag in. Was treated superbly and my stay there was spot on. Clean and comfy, thanks also for the little treats of personally cooked meal gifts and the use of the...

We stopped by in this hostel on our road trip from Melbourne to Adelaide. It was quite a good deal compared to the average accommodation prices throughout the area so we didn't expect anything outstanding. However, it was surprinsingly clean and well equipped. We had a welcoming and quiet stay. One of the best hostels ever.

The most stunning location. We enjoyed our stay here and value for money is great! Only a small thing but the fact it only had 1 combined toilet/shower for the men upstairs was a little awkward. Quite often hubby had to wait to use the bathroom and if someone was showering it would have been a lot longer. Only a...

Treat yourself and stay at this grand old Gem by the Beach! Kicking back in the beautifully restored living room after a day out exploring the coast and spotting the migrating whales, we couldn't be happier. Ask Steve, the friendly manager, about 'What's On' in the area, we were lucky to listen to some excellent live music in the pub...

PROS: Great common facilities, hardwood floors, fantastic location. Very clean restrooms. CONS: Still renovating upstairs and mens bathroom upstairs isn't open so as of now, men have to go downstairs to shower if staying upstairs, not ideal. Also no soap/shampoo available.

You can wander straight out the door and onto spectacular Horseshoe Bay. A must at dusk and dawn for amazing colour displays - pink, orange, yellow, blue. And dolphins frolicking as well! This venue is the only YHA I've ever stayed at and it's because it has the pros of a YHA mixed with the pros of a B&B or...

This YHA guesthouse was built as the Arcadia Guest House in 1914 for holiday seekers from Adelaide. Later, it was converted to a nursing home before becoming a youth hostel. The back of the house was recently extended to accommodate more guests and has a great back garden with BBQ and deckchairs and a small car park. Room 4 was...

this hostel is because I might not be able to get in next time. This is my most favourite YHA hostel and I've done most of them. I'll detour 1000kms just to have a few days here. The hostel was a guest house and it's been done up beautifully inside with the original features but also a beach house theme....
