This place needs some tlc - desperately! We stayed in the 'private with shared bathroom' house, which is seperate to the main accommodation. There were 8 people in this 'shared house', with capacity up to 9...and there is one toilet and one shower. Need I say more? Possibly not, but I will: The house hasn't seen a renovator/decorator/handyman in many... More

We booked a double room for 1 night while visiting GOR. Upon arrival the owner said that we will stay in a different house, that consisted of 3 bedrooms with 1 big living room. The house was very basic, but it had everything you need, bed, clean shower, kitchen, breakfast.

This was a nice place to spend a break from Melbourne and I ended up booking 3 additional nights here. The room was clean, there was a good mix of people and although the location is a bit far from the beach, the water is a reasonably short walk away and you get a nice impression of the landscape around...

My boyfriend and I, have just spent a lovely weekend at this nice hostel. We rented a room in the cottage. It was nice, clean and perfect for a short vacation! The place is really clean and that's very cool! This is probably one of the nicest hostel in Australia, only a few min from the beach and very cheap!... More

We were booked in for one night. Upon arriving we could not locate the manager. The building was dirty, messy and did not resemble the photos on the website. We left as the management was not around and found somewhere else to stay. Called management who insisted they were 'out e back' and stated we would be charged the full... More

We stayed in September 2012 in a 5-shared bedroom: old mastresses, dirty room and broken window (which we had to cover with curtains and towels in order not to get frozen). Moreover, there was no wireless in the room, and the heating was minimum. In addition, we were shocked to see a couple of bugs in our room, most of... More

We stayed in a separate house where 8 people could stay. There was no wi-fi here, we had to go to the main house. The mattress was a bit old and there was no heating in the bathroom, which is VERY cold if you stay here in winter. Nice, fully equipped kitchen. TV and lots of sitting space in the... More

A clean, tidy and well maintained backpacker inn. What makes it even better is the friendly uncle who runs the backpackers! A place that welcomes with arms wide open! Two thumbs up!
