The pictures images are of the Illuka YHA, which can be confused with the Coles Bay YHA (review for that below) this place is quiet, but of a good standard. The hostel as a whole is clean, quiet and unpopulated. Only issues are the older crowd it has and the fact the toilets are closed between 10-12 for cleaning, a... More

This YHA is in the BIG4 campsite and there is sufficient parking outside. It was pretty clean upon entry but cold and empty. There's no atmosphere but it's only a place to stay. Its a very basic YHA, so everything supplied is necessary, such as kitchen equipment, bed sheets and towels. However, it is not fancy and does not have... More

In the winter this hostel is freezing! We asked if there was any way to make the room warmer and was told to take extra blankets from the rooms not being used and that the fire in the kitchen would heat up everything, that was a lie. No one at the desk cared when we mentioned it to them, they... More

This is a great place to stay cheaply in one of Tasmania's most beautiful areas. It is a basic hostel, but clean and comfortable. We were a group of 6, so we booked out 2 bunk rooms...and that's exactly what they were...just 2 sets of bunks and one chair in the corner. As it is a small hostel, the facilities... More

The YHA is left on his own. There is no heater in the room and we were frozen to death! When asked for extra blankets and pillows we just received one blanket which did not help much. There is a fire place in the kitchen but you must do it yourselve.

We stayed at the yha in the middle of winter, and were greeted with a tiny private room with an old double bed, and the window wide open making the freezing room even more freezing! We were happier to see however that there was a fire in the kitchen, and the facilities seemed clean and useable. Once we started cooking... More

I am a backpacker and I have stayed in so many YHAs and did not consider them as poor but this one was! There was basically no one paying attention to the conditions of communal areas during the day. There were few toilets and showers for too many people and the living room did not have enough space at all.... More

This seems to be the only budget / backpacker place in Coles bay. It's located on a holiday park, and the overall feel was soulless. Our room was clean, though the quilt had some pretty disgusting looking stains, and it was small and basic. The kitchen / lounge area was clean, but quite poorly equipped. There was a wood fire,...

Our experience at Coles Bay YHA was generally positive. There was available parking, the toilets were clean and well-maintained. The same could be said for the kitchen which was also very spacious. The staff were quite friendly too. In terms of its location, it is near to the kayaking vendor, the beach, a grocery store and a tavern/restaurant. It is... More

We recently stayed here in one of the cabins, a two bedroom, spacious cabin. The living/dining area was very big, plenty of space for the kids to play. Great supply of cooking utensils and the kids loved the play area. The only thing I would say would be the Queen bed was a little uncomfortable. Overall a fantastic location, great... More
