We only stayed one night but we loved the place. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The lounge is huge and has good facilities. We stayed in the biggest dorm and although the lockers were small we did not feel at all uncomfortable leaving our bags in the room as it could be locked. The beds themselves were definitely... More

I know, you will search hotels nearby and this one will be the cheapest one. But it is not worst it. We stayed at the Standard Double Bed Private Ensuite. It is outside of the main house, it was really cold and noisy. The common areas were smelly. The breakfast that they offer is really simple, not good at all,... More

Warrnambool beach backpackers We turned up after reading about it in the Lonely Planet books. We had no reservations and managed to get a room very easily. It was cheap and in a nice quiet part of town. It was only a couple of minutes drive to the town centre and had parking spaces at the back. The beds were... More

No 'wow' factor but not terrible either, an average stay with an average atmosphere. Close to the beach but out of town so you'll need a car or a rental bike if you want to venture out of the area. We brought our own wifi, it is not free here...They should seriously consider not charging for it to give the... More

I stopped at the hostel on my Great Ocean Road trip. The place was pretty clean and the beds in the dorm were quite good. There is a large communal area that can be good. I went in the low season, so not much going on there then. I would have given 4 stars if they did not charge you... More

I stayed here for 1 night for a stopover as I drove from Melbourne to Adelaide. Roughly halfway it was a ideal location. Plenty of parking down the side, close to a large park and beach. staff were really friendly and helpful. Pointing out the best locations to whale watch nearby. 6 bed dorm was spacious, I got the impression... More

Stayed for one night while driving through the Great Ocean Road. The rooms were very basic but Western standards but very clean and the common area warm and comfortable.A very good budget option. One knack is the thin walls, hence we could hear when neighboring occupants talk.

We stayed here for 1 night, our last night of our Great Ocean Road trip. We did not get much sleep as there was a group of youngsters on a night out, we even recognised one of them from a restaurant she worked in Port Cambell!! So it was not a good experience, management needs to address this issue more... More
