Just stayed one night but an excellent budget choice for Appollo Bay. Clean, affordable, and a great building. Nice common areas for relaxing. Most certainly one of the best hostels I've ever seen. Short stroll into town. Highly recommend staying here.

Wow! I was so impressed when I came in this beautiful hostel. It looks like on of these houses you find in magazines. Huge kitchen with a terrace, a roof top with sun loungers and the bedrooms are basics but clean and quiet. What an amazing stay! The fact that it's an eco hostel just make it even better. Do...

Really lovely hostel. Very clean, great location just one street back from the beach. The girl working on reception was very friendly & helpful. I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm, really comfy bed, big locker and good bathroom facilities. Nice sun deck on top of the hostel. Parked my car just outside our dorm.

One of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed. Room was nice and simple and bed was comfortable. We even had a little balcony. Shared bathrooms were impeccably clean. Facilities were spacious and clean- 2 huge kitchens and a big deck upstairs with a nice view of Apollo bay. Also in a great location.

Lovely location, facilities and superb hosts - nothing too much trouble. Highly recommend this place, great value and very memorable. A lot of attention to detail and extra touches from the hosts John and Gail - and from Amber the hostel dog who loves everyone!

I stayed on my own here for three nights and can honestly say you'll be hard pushed to find something better for the money. It's super clean and tidy and 5 minutes walk from everything. The only problem is that the hostel reception isn't open all day and you have to wait till 5pm to check in but otherwise a... More

We were travelling as a family and my kids had stayed at this hostel before so we booked it for all of us. It was very clean, and very well organised. There were a couple of large kitchens, and communal sitting rooms. A roof terrace, a shower and bath available. A good stop over on way to 12 Apostles.

This hostel is a very nice building with nice rooms and clean facilities. There is enough space for all guest, including 2 kitchens and 2 living rooms. The owners are very friendly and helpfull. The building has a very nice atmosphere. This is one of the better places in Apollo Bay for budget accomodation. I liked it there.

While hosteling is definitely an activity for students and retirees this Eco hostel breaks the mold and you will find all manner of travelers here. The common living room with cosy fireplace, great clean equipped kitchen and TV room make up for Spartan rooms. Your conscience is soothed by knowing you are only low impact contributing to any environmental degradation... More

We have stayed at this hostel 5 or 6 times over the past few years - each time we have booked the family room for ourselves and our two children. The family room has a double bed and bunk beds, the rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The facilities are shared but are fantastic - two bathrooms - upstairs... More
