YHA Potshot Resort Reviews from the Web

Ive stayed at the potshot twice, during the week it is quite a chilled area and the bar is really great. On Fridays there is live music which is fun however youll hear it from all the rooms if you are not into it! The facilities were always clean. Mostly workers were staying here and not travellers. Would suggest some security lockers of some kind for the rooms! I would stay again :)


Great hostel with lots of fantastic facilities. Rooms have a fridge and ensuit. Met some great people here. The English lady in reception was fantastic, she was very welcoming


Great place to stay! Met amazing people! Very clean and comfortable beds. Really liked having a bathroom and a fridge in the dorm. The only thing that could be improved would be the kitchen utensils in the shared kitchen.


Over all stay was good, was definitely expecting more considering how expensive it was but considering there isnt a lot of accom in exmouth they can get away with high prices. Room was small, it was like a metal shed with no windows but with an en-suit. No towels so remember to bring some.. they did have cooking facilities but we didnt use.


Shower door felt like it was going to break when I opened it, rubbing hard on the bottom of it. Shower cubicle needed maintenance, soap tray broken off wall, no mirror in bathroom. Walked in and floor was covered in sand/dirt. Wanted to get a late check out due to having a late flight but wasnt allowed and I get the reasons but the way it was spoken to me seemed quite rude and it wasnt like they were busy that the room could be cleaned the next day.


Terrible experience.


Very friendly Staff.

Thanks for the good service during my stay.

The hostel itself is pretty good, but security could be better. Camper vans park just in front of the rooms, if for any chance somebody forgets to lock the door, a random person will get into the room and have a shower.

The kitchen and common areas are quite simple, pretty different from other YHA. But the price my friend, is the same


Very pleasant staff


It is a very expensive hostel and you expect better things. The kitchen is quite often very dirty and it is difficult to find what you need to cook there. In addition you have to pay 5 dollars per hour to have wifi. Good location an nice swimming pool but the price should be lower taking into account what it is offered.


Good location not too far from everything. Friendly staff. The room smelled and at first I assumed it was the other travellers but it was actually the bedsheets/quilts. They probably never wash the quilts and it's disgusting.

Also one ensuite bathroom for 10 beds is not enough and gives no privacy.


Basic dorms but large, clean ensuite. I found the beds uncomfortable and lots of light coming in the rooms as outdoor lights are left on all night. Only 3 power poinrs for a10 bedded dorm. No lockers in room but can use safe at reception (access during reception hours). Everyone leaves the kitchen in a mess but thankfully a cleaner comes in every morning. There were no bowls or mugs and only 1 fork for my whole stay except the day i checked out. Hotel bar next door with music, bring earplugs.


Room was very nice, having the dorm fridge was great. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Kitchen was awful, no cutlery and all pots/pans had warped underside so wouldn't stand on the hob


I enjoyed the space, air conditioner, small fridge and bathroom in the room, and having the hotel next door for meals (although quite expensive). Lovely environment around the pool.


The place is nice. Rooms are alright, could be cleaner. But the staff is not that friendly and has a weird/uncommon attitude. Its usually a management problem


Average at best


Prime location


Worst stay in a hotel EVER! Didnt get any sleep because the backpackers like to play extremely loud music at 2:30 am, when confronted still didnt turn it down. Checked out early and wont be back ahain. Only good thing was the lady at the front desk was very understanding and gave us a full refund. The food was great and the service of the bar was great!!


There is a massive outdoor area for the hostel with a well equiped kitchen. It is in a very good location near shops and city centre.


Liked: It was cheap and quality accomodation at last minute notice.Very friendly atmosphere and caters to the needs of every type of customer from business exec, family, tourist, shift worker to backpacker. Didn't like: Had to pay for towels, key return service not avail so wasn't able to get my deposit back as had to depart out of check-out operating hours
