We stayed in Bells Beach Backpackers on our way back from doing the Great Ocean Road. Rooms were great, beds were super comfy and the kitchen had everything you'd need to cook up a great meal! The owner was incredibly helpful and came out and had a great chat with us about everything and anything there is to do and... More

A hostel's a hostel, busy kitchen area, busy living area, showers and bathrooms do the job. The beds here though, ridiculously comfy and soft, clean sheets... and in a perfect surf town! Not too far a walk from a couple of the beaches and there's a pretty sweet fish n' chip place just down the road!

Staffs were friendly and the location's great! However, the building is a bit too old and I think it need some sort of renovation. Personally, I don't like the environmental friendly 10 minutes times out shut off light in the washroom. If the lights were on when you walked into the bathroom, you should pressed it again or you might... More

I stayed overnight as part of a tour group. Facilities were excellent with the comfiest hostel beds I've ever experienced, a large BBQ area, well equipped clean kitchen and living areas and good bathrooms. Really relaxed atmosphere and it felt like one big happy family. Would love to come back!

Cheapest but clean accommodation in Torquay. We did enjoy the two nights we spent there, possibility to make a barbecue, free coffee in the morning ... But be careful because the staff goes surfing between 12 pm and 5 pm, be sure to check in before or after

At 55, I hardly fit in with the hippy, surfie dudes. But they were polite and welcoming, and I didn't feel at all uncomfortable. The 3rd floor accommodation was a bit tricky with the only bathroom on the ground floor, but all was well. The bed was comfy, the bathroom clean, and it was close to all that I wanted.... More

If you like the laid back and friendly atmosphere where the host will be your friend and the other visitors will easily ge into conversation with you, you need to visit this place. It's small but great and cosy and in good location in Torquay!

Great place with great people! Made me feel like home with family only on two days. The hostel keeper is nice and you can feel he enjoys what he's doing which makes the atmosphere really good. If you are doing the great ocean road, this is the place to stop in.

Great little hostel, comfy beds and very clean throughout. Great kitchen to cook in which is also kept very clean. Only negative thing is that they charge for wifi - seems a little odd in this day and age! Sean is very friendly and a great guy. Would happily recommend this place!
