Stayed with my family in a family room for 1 nite. Super happy about our choice. This place was super clean, quiet and everyone friendly. We did not use the kitchen. Kids watched a movie. Great choice on the great ocean road.

Great place! Two kitchens! Great hangout spaces and roof top spot. Did my laundry here and they gave me soap! The rooms were perfect with four beds and locking lockers. Clean, perfectly located! I booked well ahead and they were full but I never felt like it was crowded. Dropped a guy I met hiking at another hostel and was... More

This was the first time I was staying in YHA. It was a great experience. The stay was very cheap, further we almost got a private room as we were three friends, and there was no fourth person to share the room. Kitchen had all the utensils, we cooked our food without any problem. Toilets and kitchen are cleaned frequently.... More

This place changed my definition of hostels. It was so clean and spacious. Rooms were spacious too. Facilities were all under one roof. Good thai restaurant nearby with delicious food as we reached in the evening. Fireplace was very cosy and was the perfect place to make new friends. The only drawback was there were 2 people hogging the tv... More

We enjoyed our one night stay here. The measures taken by the designers and owners to minimise the environmental impact of a backpackers were heartening to see and did not decrease the comfort of the experience in any way. The building's architecture was fantastic in a modern 'Eco-inspired way'. Service at the front desk was ok, the kitchen and bathrooms... More

After staying in the Grampians Eco YHA we booked another stay at a YHA in Apollo Bay. We found the hostel to be extremely clean and well looked after, with great facilities especially in the kitchens. There is plenty of parking and it's a very short walk to the main street of Apollo Bay. The staff were very helpful, especially... More

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.
