YHA has been providing group accommodation to schools for over 75 years.

Ideally located at the gateway to Phillip Island, the property is a short stroll to local shops, cafes and beaches. Nothing is more than 20 minutes away when you’re on Phillip Island, so it’s easy to access the attractions the island has to offer. There are many educational programs and excursions on offer, ask us for more details at the time of your enquiry.

School Group Accommodation

Multi-share rooms

Phillip Island YHA has 4, 5, 6, 10 and 12 share rooms for your group to stay in, with communal bathrooms on every floor. Rooms include fresh linen and under the bed lockers.

Private rooms

We have a selection of king or king single rooms – either with shared bathrooms for the budget conscious or with ensuites for those wanting extra privacy. These rooms are conveniently located near to our multi-share rooms, so you can be near to the rest of your group.

This property is a Rent-a-YHA hostel, offering the options of either renting half of the hostel for smaller groups with your very own exclusive lounge kitchen and bathrooms, or renting the entire property with no other guests on-site during the duration of your group’s stay.

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.
