Stayed for one night in shared room with family. Room was good size, clean and comfy. Had benefit of ensuite shower and toilet - small and adequate. Other communal showers/toilets available. Big lounge, free tea and coffee and lots of information about things to see and do. Wifi not brilliant, but managed to squeeze enough out to send emails -... More

Good place, nice atmosphere. The common area huge plenty of space to chill! 16 bed dorms, was abit hot when we slept unfortunately. Comfy beds though. Male bathroom only one toilet. Only 2 hours free wifi :(. Shops are 10 min drive away. Not really walkable. Staff friendly. Overall was happy with our stay!

Adequate place to stay for the night. Everything that you'd expect from a backpacking hostel. The range of dorm sizes (6,8,16) was good. My only reservation was the woman at the reception who wasn't helpful or friendly at all. She was also very controlling of the wifi and the kitchen equipment.

Be aware you share a locker with your travel buddy, good size but still a bit tight If your very weary of leaving things about. Common room at one end... More

Hiring bikes and thrashing it out around Thunder point Mountain bike tracks and catching a wave they did a great... More

Stayed here one night with friends and it was great. Surfboard and bike hire, on site bar, spacious, clean dorms and helpful staff. Shame we shared the dorm with some rowdy, late night drinkers though.

We stopped here for 1 night on our drive through the Great Ocean Road. The style of the hostel is a little older, so it's not super clean, however the staff (owner?) is really friendly and the price is good. There is free tea/coffee and the beds were comfortable. a nice place to rest for a night. Very large common... More

By now it should be or will soon be undergoing an expansion - which will be good for it. The kitchen could really do with being bigger, as in the winter it was nice, but the summer when it's full I can imagine it being pretty overcrowded. Anyway, free tea/coffee, great little location to get down to the bay and... More
