Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good, clean, no-frills accommodation for summer. However, we stayed there in winter and the heater was on a 3 hour timer, so we had to get up several times during the night to turn the heater back on. There were no extra blankets in the room.

This is one of the best Hostel accommodations I've ever stayed, something for everyone. Couples have a private room with an en suite, families can have the bunk rooms with the shared facilities. Back packers can have a cheap bed in a share room. The kitchen and TV room are very spacious clean and great options for your own catering. Large fridges, freezer, oven & stove tops, plenty of utensils and a microwave. Great service and so clean. Thanks for my great stay.

The room is spacious and clean. The bathroom and kitchen are super clean. There is a heater in my room, which is so useful in the winter. The car parking is spacious. This is one of the best accommodations for solo travelers. I feel really relaxed. The staff is really helpful. They give me a lot of advice on famous destinations in Philip island.

The accommodation is really nice. The reception is super nice, she provided very clear information of the Island. The shared kitchen is really convenience and big. It's also not far from most of the tourist attractions. The room is clean. However, the TV in the room is a bit old and the remote control isn't working (but there was a shared TV room). The heater also stopped working many times during the night so it was a bit too cold for us. Anyways, I would really recommend this place. Anyone coming to Phillip Island I'd recommend you to stay at this place, it's a perfect accommodation on the island!

We had a lovely time at the Phillip Island YHA! The staff were super friendly and helpful with recommendations for while we were on the island and the room was super spacious with really comfortable beds! We made good use of the TV room also and the kitchen space was really clean with lots of seating. Would definitely recommend and will be coming back for a visit in the summer

I must say I was very impressed with the accommodation in general. I live in Sydney and did a road trip to Melbourne and Phillip Island. When booking I saw a few bad reviews and was a little apprehensive, and after a very frustrating stay in Melbourne, I was very concerned about the following days in Phillip Island. In th end, Phillip Island was the best part of the trip and the accomodation factored in this. I got the private ensuite with my husband, the room as very comfortable and clean, they had a huge fully equiped shared kitchen and a big cinema room. Though I didn't use it because I got the private ensuite I saw they had shared toilets/showers. And they have a laundry room in the ground floor. The only thing I would give an upgrade was the pillows that were very thin, but not a big problem. It is very well located, close to the bridge, walking distance to a small centre with restaurants and supermarket and easy car access to the rest of the island. 10/10!

Surprisingly large three storey modern Hostel in a prime position. Set in quieter Newhaven but only a short walk over the bridge to San Remo. Lovely harbour and surf beach nearby. Very friendly staff.

The accommodation was great. The kitchen, games room, and separate lounge-room was awesome. The sun comes in the big kitchen which was lovely and the view is nice. Very large kitchen with plenty of tables. Our room was basic but clean and nice and had an ensuite. The staff are great

I took a small group of school students to stay at The Island Accommodation for a camp. We were accommodated perfectly -close to shops, spacious common room areas, a BBQ and outdoor dinning area, a large and well-equipped kitchen and dining room, and clean bedrooms. The staff were able to help us at any time - they even organised for us to see The Penguin Parade! I highly recommend anyone to stay here!

Comfortable and very clean place. The wifi is strong and the kitchen perfectly equipped. The bus station is no minute away, but a car is still recommended especially if you want to visit the penguine parade.
