We stayed here in the private double room/family room, for 80 AUD a night, for a rest during our great ocean road adventure. The hotel is a bit away from the centre, but it did not matter to us since we just needed a place to stay, and we had a car. Free parking is available. We received one hour... More

We stopped here on our Great Ocean Road trip as a recommendation through Wicked campers, you get a great deal of only $12 per person and you get to park in a big grassy area in the back of their yard, with access to all of their indoor facilities. They had a great kitchen, nice showers and a huge common... More

Never actually stayed in the rooms but got parked outside for the night and was given use of the facilities for a mere $12pp. Perhaps a bit biased due to the opportunity to charge devices after driving most of the day but the hostel itself is excellent. It has its own bar (big plus) and a pool table all in... More

Only stayed one night while travelling the ocean road. didn't get to see warrnambool itself but this hostel was surprisingly better than it looked from the outside in the dark :) Very friendly staff, clean and spacious bathroom. Comfy enough beds and clean. Only downside is there aren't plugs next to every bed but this did not bother me too... More

Very good value for money accommodation, we stayed in a family ensuite room which was very clean, however the room is positioned in the corridor, with no exterior window only into the corridor and even though there is a no smoking sign outside the door people took no notice of this so you could not have any ventilation in the...

I stayed at this place after driving along the great ocean road. Very nice place , not expensive , very clean... So lovely ! The manager ( I think she was the manager ) was so nice and helpful and recommended to me a cute backpacker in Grampians national park for the next day.

stayed the night outback in the carpark in our campervan, obviously had access to the bathroom/showers and kitchen inside. Was very tidy and clean for the short time we stayed. We were there on the Saturday night so was very lively which suited me fine, so we made friends with a few people staying there and went out clubbing. They... More

I stayed here with two mates after we'd finished driving the Great Ocean Road. The place was clean and the owners/managers friendly. We didn't use it but the place has a massive kitchen. The common area is huge with a pool table, TV and X-Box setup. Next to the pool table is a little bar and the prices are cheaper... More

A very large backpackers hostel which made it seem quite empty during our one-night stay in wintertime. But there was still a nice atmosphere amongst the guests. Ok kitchen facilities, but quite small for a hostel of this capacity. Comfortable beds, free tea and coffee. No lockers in the rooms. Cheap!
