Search Google and I am sometimes spoilt by choices for accommodation but YHAs seemed to be always then right choice. I know my budget and my minimum requirement for my choice is an ensuite clean double room for seniors like my husband and I ages 71 and 63, good locality and caring hosts. Sally and Bill met all these requirements....

The room was more than adequate for me and my friend. We were upgraded to a room with a bathroom. The room was generally clean the bathroom wasn't perfect but you get what you pay for. Overall if you want to stay somewhere on a budget in a great position don't look elsewhere. However if you want class and luxury...

Got off the boat in Penneshaw and walked about 3 minutes up a slight hill to the YHA. Clearly signposted. Check is was a breeze and the reception was full of informative leaflets and posters which helped us plan the rest of our stay in KI. Room was very clean and beds comfortable. Bed sheets provided and check out process...

We have stayed in numerous YHA establishments in Australia (and around the world) and we have been surprised by some truly wonderful accommodations. Unfortunately, this is not one of those YHAs. There has been no concession to comfort here, whatsoever; the rooms are cramped (with the exception of the family room) with the feel of a hospital ward – floors...

It all started pretty nice. Small hostel, good location and easy check-in. We booked the hostel as a part of a package, booked at the YHA Adelaide Central. After waking up after our first night we saw a cockroach in the bathroom. We then went out on a very nice tour afterwards and when we came back to the hostel...

Stayed at the hostel as part of a package I'd booked with sea link, staying two nights with a highlights day tour. The hostel is only small so there aren't many other people there, however saying that I did manage to have my food from the kitchen stolen, I know it's not the hostels fault and other guests are to...

Lots of like minded travellers found here. I made friends straight away from Australia, Japan and China. The facilities are basic so don't expect too much. I stayed in a dorm room and the bed was comfy. The bathroom was very basis but did the trick. The manager was very helpful and really nice. Make sure you come to KI...

Great value , as a couple we stayed there, rooms are neat and tidy and bathrooms clean and no problems with booking (late March), the lady lady was really friendly and helpful. It is located really close to small township in Penneshaw with superette and food outlets close by, I would recommend if you are travelling on a budget.

I stayed here with my sister and we had booked a private room as mentioned by previous reviewers this meant a shared bathroom. Too be honest it was ok, basic, room cleanish - not immaculate but it was the experience which we enjoyed. We met some lovely people the owner was friendly and provided some helpful advice.

This is a strange hostel. There are 7 motel-like rooms which act as dorms or en suite doubles/twins. Each of these has bunk beds, sometimes a double bed, lockers, table and chairs, heater and a bathroom with loo, basin and shower. They are good rooms, nice and light, with a large window giving a view of the bay. Rooms 8...
