All the staff were lovely. The rooms were very clean. We really enjoyed our stay. I wish there were free towels as paying for one is a bit annoying. Other than that I would highly recommend it! Cheers

It was a good option for one night. The hostel doesn't have any luxury, but the shared bathroom wasn't a big deal. The staff is very kind and the private room is OK. I reccomend, manly if your staying is not very long.

This was my first time stay at a back packers. Quite a good experience. Met some nice people. Clean rooms and facilities. Good value for your money. Had a good nights sleep on a top bunk. Next time I would get there a bit earlier for a bottom bunk.

Great value clean and comfortable hostel. Not too far from the best parts of town. It was off peak time and the two of us had a 4 bed dorm to ourselves. Perfect for traveling surfers. Sean the owner is a great guy. Will be back.

The hostel is situated at a 15 min walking distance from Torquay Center, and really close to the great ocean road. The kitchen is well furnished and really clean, bathroom and toilets too. Sean is a great host and knows quite a lot about the area and the town. The small size of the hostel gives it a really good... More

This hostel is amazing, my only problem is I couldn't stay longer. The bed was more comfortable than my own bed at home! Its comfortable with lounges and a nice little kitchen area, hot showers, friendly. Definitely recommend :)

I stayed just one night in Bells. It's an excellent place, technically: well-organised, good beds, clean. But it is also a bit sterile. No backpackers scene. Maybe because there were a lot of people, maybe it is a bit too organised?

Friendly, clean place to stay. Sean is lovely and will do anything to help you - especially if you are travelling along the great ocean road - he will give you great tips on what to see. Plenty of storage space for your fridge items and dry goods items aswell.
