Budget Accommodation on Kangaroo Island
43 North Terrace, Penneshaw, Kangaroo Island

Finding us shouldn't be too difficult if travelling by ferry, once docked all passengers leave by the side exit and walk down a ramp. As you’re walking down the ramp look straight ahead and there will be a road that all vehicles leaving the ferry will use, there is a road (parking bay) to the left but don't go that way. Follow the road up a slight incline until you reach the top, once there you should see a couple of shops on the left, a pizza bar and the other a fish & chip shop. The hostel is located behind the shops so you will need to walk down the driveway next to the pizza bar. Total distance is about 100 metre's
