School Group Accommodation

Multi-share rooms

Grampians Eco YHA has a large number of 3 and 4 share rooms, with communal bathrooms located on every floor. All rooms include linen, lockers and personal bed lamps.

Private rooms

We have a selection of twin and double rooms, with shared bathrooms. These rooms are conveniently located near to our multi-share rooms, so you can be near to the rest of your group.

Why choose a YHA hostel?
YHA Australia is a membership-based, not for profit association.
In Germany in 1909, schoolteacher Richard Schirrmann had the idea to create a network of budget accommodation options across the country to be used by school groups. The first permanent youth hostel, Altena Castle, was established in Germany in 1912 and still operates today. The YHA movement has over 60,000 members in Australia and records more than 1.5 million overnight stays annually.
