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!

A friend and I stayed for one night before doing our great ocean road trip. It was amazing having a bunk bed that didn't creak and I had the best night sleep that I had had in a very long time. The staff were beyond helpful, giving us info on the best surfing information and other hostels that we could... More

Basic, and the person took card payment before I arrived which was rather annoying as we wanted to pay on a different card. free tea & coffee is good. Owner appears happy to help with questions. Slightly away from Torquay beach but a quick drive. Very nice Thai restaurant next door

Starting from the location, to its ambience , and host this place is simply great. Highly recommended for every traveler. Short walk to the beach, clean and comfortable rooms. Great common area. And love the bench on the outside.

My biggest concern is the staff who try and befriend the guests. Dan who was working at the desk when we were there made a show of a french guy who spoke very little English. Insulting him in the lounge for the other guests benefit. He was also persistently hitting on younger girls (guests) half his age and when I... More

Bells beach backpackers was the perfect place to stay as a younger traveller, but even as an older you would still enjoy the fantastic hospitality and welcoming atmosphere of this clean, comfortable and conveniently located backpackers, the staff and fellow guests were very welcoming, and if I was to head to Torquay again, they would be my first choice. Cheers!

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!!!

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
