We had a private double for two nights. The lounge areas are good but the place is let down by the old kitchen (and not the best equipped) and the ladies toilets which have a damp problem. The mattress in our room was also not the greatest, we saw it when we took the sheets off and it was a... More

This YHA is really great. The dorms, the common rooms, the kitchen, the bathrooms everything is high standard. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the hostel is located perfectly...quiet but only a five minutes walk from the shops, restaurants and the beach.

This hostel has an excellent modern design and the common areas are lovely, however the private room we stayed in was extremely smelly (mouldy smell?) and the bathrooms were constantly flooded with water, making them very unpleasant to use. The manager was graciously accommodating for our late arrival. However, I was surprised towels were not provided for a private room... More

The hostel is one of the best i have ever stayed in. The rooms are basic and kind of small, but the two kitchens, 2 living rooms and the rooftop compensate that easily. The hostel is clean and the staff very friendly. The location is perect right behind the main street and the beach. Defenitely a place to stay

The noise level as with any hostel is still a problem. This one is better because of the thick bricks. Nice kitchen facility . Sadly the people using the kitchen don,t always clean up after thensekves. There is a great mix of travelers coming through which is great. If you want a sunny room with a balcony ask for a... More

This was a great place to start our holiday. We felt welcomed and relaxed thanks to the excellent managers. The rooms are good size and the living areas spacious. In addition there was an amazing view from the roof. We were here on New Year's Eve and the atmosphere was tranquil and not noisy. We were inspired to cook as... More

Stayed here overnight in a double room with my boyfriend on our Great Ocean Road trip. We were impressed with the quality of the YHA and the rooms for the price. It is very modern and the rooms were quiet with a comfy double bed and a nice big window with balcony. There was also a good size fan on... More

A very nice pack packers. We got a private double room which had a comfortable bed and small fold out desk. The extra rooms is what makes this place. Great large and clean kitchen. And a t.v, computer room, and a couple lounge rooms. Great location as well.

This has to be the best designed hostel Ive ever stayed in! Great facilities, comfortable and friendly people. The room is a little cold but we stayed there on a cold rainy night so it probably is warmer on other days. Bathroom is clean and well maintained. Kitchen has the full works and we happily cooked for dinner. We got... More
