This hostel was fantastic!! The owner, Sean, really makes you feel welcome and at home. The place is spotless, the kitchen has ample space and accessories and the rooms and beds are comfortable! I came for a night and ended up staying for 4! Made some great friends there and was sad to leave. I'll definitely be back! Thanks Sean!!!

I don't normally do reviews but this hostel needs recognition for its excellence! This hostel can only be described as a home away from home! me and a friend planned to go Torquay for just 1 night for abit of surfing but because of this hostel we ended up staying a week! The people and owner (Shaun) were very welcoming... More

I stayed here for a weekend surf trip. The rooms were clean and tidy and the owner Sean was a great bloke. Sean gave us good recommendations of where to eat and surf and shared a few tales from his experiences in the tourism industry. I would recommend this place to anyone. Paul

A good place, nice and clean. A few hundred yards from beach and town centre. Facilities are OK and wheni was there it was busy. Should bear in mind that this is a back packers. To be honest not the best I stayed at but I have been to far worse!

Called this Hostel pretty late and still managed to get in for the night, when we arrived the staff were so friendly and gave us free Wifi for the night. the living room is really comfortable with a decent TV. the cooking facilities aren't the biggest so can get a little cramped but there is cheap takeouts available near by....

We stayed in this place for one night as a stopover in our great ocean road journey. We choose the couple room to have more intimacy. After I read good reviews on it, I wanted to try the experience especially for the good price. When we arrive, the manager (I believe) was very friendly and the place was clean (including... More
