Old/cozy and quiet hostel (in March). Good kitchen facilities. Rain water for drinking and cooking. Rooms cozy with a heater but probably in need of a refurbishment soon.

Fabulous hostel in an historic building. Lovely relaxing garden setting and lots of interesting quiet nooks & a big old fashioned get together type kitchen for cooking chatting and meeting people. Staff are friendly welcoming & very helpful. Definitely an Aussie country style hostel to visit & stay in for a few extra days.

Note that reception closes at 9pm rather than 10pm (as on app) on peak season.

In general this hostel is very family, a small but comfortable place to stay in. The beds in the dorms are a little narrow though. I spent a night there on the way from Apollo Bay to Grampians and this was a good decision. Even if the town is little you can visit the tower hill park nearby (and see some kangaroo and koalas) and the Griffith island and see birds and have a nice little walk there.

We did a few hostels on our current trip and this one was by far the worst. The bedside tables were full of dust and the room clearly hadn't been cleaned in a long while. The bathrooms provided solely for one shower and one toilet for each gender and were full of cobwebs. The fridges stank of old food and the kitchen was filthy. You could hear every single word spoken in the room next door although our neighbours tried to be quiet. No privacy whatsoever. Not worth the money, would not recommend.

This is a nice clean hostel with character, friendly staff and in a good location. Some facilities could do with a bit of an update but everything is there and works.

Port fairy is a small beach community and the YHA here is friendly and comfortable.

The hostel was one of the worst YHAs we stayed at. It‘s very old and the facilities are not in a good condition. We had a double room which was way overpriced for what we got.

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 give us your email address, you will be invited to rate your hostel stay upon checkout.

We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish comments online:

INAPPROPRIATE OR OFFENSIVE COMMENTS

We will not publish inappropriate and/or offensive comments.

Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language, swearing or references to illicit drug usage.

UNSUBSTANTIATED OR INCORRECT CLAIMS

We will not publish any comments that are not directly related to the hostel, or your experience during your stay.

Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated, incorrect or you did not stay at the hostel that you are commenting on.

COMMENTS INCLUDING STAFF NAMES

We will not publish comments that include full staff names, irrespective of whether your comment is positive or negative.

First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

If you make a negative comment, we will remove any reference to particular staff members.

CHANGED CIRCUMSTANCES IN HOSTELS

If there have been any major changes such as major 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.
