Port Elliot Beach House YHA

Top choice hostel in Port Elliot
Image by Booking.com

Built in 1910 (the old Arcadia Hotel), this sandstone beauty has sweeping views across the Port Elliot coastline. Drag your eyes away from the scenery and you'll find polished floorboards, en-suite rooms, nice linen and contemporary colour schemes: a million-dollar fit-out (maybe more). Surf lessons are almost mandatory.
