A really lovely home run backpackers that makes you feel very welcome, especially from Bella the puppy dog who just can't wait to meet you! Very clean throughout, well equipped kitchen open plan with a comfy and relaxing TV lounge. Comfortable mixed dorms and a decent clean bathroom! Just a short trip to the beach and surf shops. Definitely recommend... More

This is a quiet, friendly and clean hostel that I have used regularly over the past year to surf at weekends. You couldn't ask for any more. It's not busy but still very friendly, and the owner ensures everyone gets a good nights sleep (kitchen shut at 10pm etc.) Cheers Sean

Most important, a comfortable bed! Good facilities, very clean, good kitchen, good price and the owner is lovely, and his dog is lovely too! Great spot for surfing, or a stop along the great ocean road. I would highly recommend this hostel.

We add a lovely stay, the owner is really nice and his dog is just adorable. Clean room and bathroom, there's nothing to complain about, except maybe that the room is not well isolated - but that was not really a problem as everyone was quiet.

We entered the hostel only to see a grown dog run at us without a leash or anything and the owner was nowhere near. One of us had to hide in the bathroom because she was so scared. Kitchen is disgusting. All the rooms smelled like weed. My advice: Dont go there!

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.
