It's a cottage turned into a backpackers, so the small size means it's very humble but cosy. Kudos to the hot water in the bathroom, as I visited in winter. The TV is good and the Internet on the PC reasonable. Didn't try to use the wifi as the hostel was so quiet I had the PC to myself. Kitchen... More

The Hostel for the evening was the Prom Coast Backpackers. I had reserved a single room (not ready for the multiple person room yet – that comes tomorrow in Phillip Island!), and I settled in to the very comfortable home to catch up on some work items. The backpacker has three rooms – mine with a single queen-sized bed, a... More

We arrived mid-afternoon and found no signs of life. Followed instructions and used phone on front veranda and this went to voicemail. Sat around a bit. Nothing. Managed to rustle up a friendly helpful neighbor who eventually contacted the owners and let us in. The YHA is rustic and as noted there were no locks on the twin room door... More

This little hostel is very quaint, being an old bungalow converted to a hostel. It was more or less full when we stayed but didn't feel crowded. There's a nice place to sit and eat outside so people can spread themselves out if need be. There is free wifi which is a bonus. No locks on bedroom doors, which was... More

This hostel is a small house located just outside of the downtown area of Foster. While it is convenient to visiting Wilsons Promontory Park, I can't recommend staying here. This is a review of the single/double room: The house itself is fairly run down and shows wear in a lot of places. The single/double room does not have a lock... More

Although Foster is 60km from Wilsons Prom, you have to book really far in advance to stay at any of the lodging actually within the Prom. We found this YHA a really good alternative- not too far to travel to the Prom, but also very close to a range of amenities, too, which you don't get at the National Park.... More
