We really liked it. Just such a good set up and good atmosphere. Plenty of space for everyone to sit comfortably. Free wifi. Comfy beds. Kitchens well equipped. Friendly staff. Lovely playful black lab called Bella. Couldn't ask for much else!

Stayed here with my partner whilst driving on the great ocean road. The guy on the front desk was friendly and really helpful. We stayed in a private room which was pretty basic (bed, bedside table) but that's to be expected when booking budget accommodation, the room was very clean as were the communal showers/bathrooms. Would definitely recommend this hostel.

Bells Beach Backpackers is a very nice place to stay. Organised, yet relaxed, clean, peacefull, not too crowded, free wifi and nice prices. I`ll recommend it to everybody who want a easygoing on the road stay. We stayed for one night, and had breakfast at a restaurant nearby.

Me and my friends came to Torquay for the weekend. We've all travelled and stayed in many hostels and admitted this is one of the nicest, clean and tidy hostels we've stayed in. The owner was nice and helpful along with his helper Bella the beautiful black lab. Definitely recommend this place if your visiting Torquay!

It was my first time at hostel, the place was very clean and comfortable. It is possible to see ocean view from the lounge, the kitchen was very clean and staff were very helpful. It was an amazing surf break for a couple of days. The place is highly recommended.

I've never stayed at a hostel before and was quite nervous to. There was no need for that at this one! It was amazing. The staff were very friendly and appreciative of others. There's a lovely back garden with BBQ and seating areas - nice and chilled on a Friday night. The beds were extremely clean and comfy! Could not... More
