Kangaroo Island Backpackers - Hostel
Very good value for money. Kitchen, bathroom and lounge very good. Had a campfire on Sunday night which was excellent.

Good6.0
The room was very small and does not seem very clean. On the other hand shared bathroom and kitchen were well maintained. Receptionist is friendly though her English was not the most fluent (curious as we are in a English-speaking country). However for the very cheap price we paid in the middle of very high season, these issues are all acceptable. Location is convenient, especially with late ferry arrival/ early departure.

Clean, comfortable place in Penneshaw
Cleanliness was good. Absence of staff at the counter was problematic at times. WiFi was pretty slow. Otherwise everything was great!

a very cool hostel to stay at.
I found no fault in the hostel whatsoever. I enjoyed my private room, the showers were clean and adequate and so was the kitchen. I loved the place as it was quiet and well run.

Wonderful setting!!
Kangaroo Island is a magical place, and this backpackers was a perfect place to stay for the trip I was doing! Very, very close to the ferry service and within walking distance the (few) cafes and restaurants in town. I loved being right across the street from the water to walk outside for sunrise each morning. The hostel itself was great. I stayed in a cozy, private room. My only complaint is that you can hear every conversation for anyone sitting outside. Even with my window closed and them talking quietly, I could hear every word. Once I fell asleep, it wasn't a problem.
