We stayed here for one night mid feb and it was the worst hostel I have ever stayed at. We turned up to the backpackers to check in where there was not really a reception area and told to drive down the street a few houses. We pulled up outside a derelict house with a for sale sign outside and... More

Where to begin? Rude staff? Dirty? Rooms not what's advertised? Abandoned rusted cars and cats everywhere? We were "greeted" on arrival, more like she didn't even care we were there. When we walked down the street to the trashy house, we had to walk through then outside to our small, and bad room. Offered another room, with no flywire or... More

The "receptionist" took no interest in our arrival, we did not feel welcome. She was unenthusiastic, struggled with english, and rude. She gave us a hand drawn map and told us to walk down the street to our room which was tidy although the lamps on either side of the bed didnt work. The other visitors were friendly. Our bed...

We stopped in for one night whilst travelling the Great Ocean Road and we enjoyed ourselves. The facilities were all very clean and tidy, a simple breakfast and tea and coffee was provided. I particularly liked the resident cat! The mattress was just a foam one so it wasn't super comfy and the curtains didn't cover the windows but we... More

Odd, unpleasant, noisy & sinkage are the main words we would use to describe the Apollo bay backpackers. While it seems a good idea in theory to convert a run down little house in the suburbs & charge people money to sleep there, the house lacks any charm or homey feel you might find in a similar set up. This... More

We stayed in a very small 4 bed dorm, which barely fitted all our backpacks. The room was dirty with spiders in one of the beds, the mattresses were humid, very old and worn out. Plus at night the rooms get very cold. So we had the worst night ever! Next to this, the hostels staff (owners?) were very very... More

We stumbled across this place as its well signed from he main street we hadn't booked on line and there was a room available 65 bucks and breakfast included! The rooms were a bit dated but not a problem and the breakfast was really good a choice of 5 cereals plus toast with loads of different jams fresh milk and... More

Spent one very stormy night in this cosy, colourful and well-heated backpackers. Quite basic facilities, but all clean. Breakfast of cereal and toast provided. Free coffee and tea. Could imagine it would be very crowded during summer, but it was lovely and peaceful for us 2!

The hostel was very nice for the price we've paid. Beds were confortable, clean bed sheets, toilets and showers work perfectly. When we were there it was not noisy either. The space for meals is alright too, the kitchen is fully equipped and the hostel offers self service breakfast. Only problem is there is no wifi.

We stayed for one night in a twin share room. We were three people in one room and shared the bathroom and the kitchen with another couple. The room had two really old beds in it and it smelled as if nobody had ever opened a window before. The matresses were really worn out and the rest of the furniture... More
