We booked this early and upon arrival found our room not cleaned. We were then shown another room (the guy running the show didn't even know someone stayed there last night!) Which was clean. Then to the lounge where it didn't look like a cleaner had been for months. Then the cherry on top - the kitchen. I wish I... More

I've stayed in that hostel few years ago for a while. I liked the owners Alan and Stephanie who were really nice people but unfortunately aren't working there anymore. However, I wanted to see the Grampian NP again and decided to stay at that particular hostel once more. It was great to be able to arrange the accommodation even if... More

Halls Gap can be very expensive during the school holidays so due to price,chose to stay at Brambuk with my son, in a twin room. Not the most modern of facilities and yet it had everything we required, ensuite, good kitchen facilities, linen provided and a good deck area to sit on and watch the wildlife. Good location as a...

I wanted to stay at a different hostel in the area, but they were booked so I found Brambuk on google. Though reception was closed, the guy told me where to find a key and to help myself. I stayed in an 8 bed dorm with ensuite. It was nice there was a heater in the room, as I would... More

I stayed in a 8 person dorm at the hostel in June for a long weekend for some hiking in the Grampians. The woman at the reception was really nice and showed me around. The room and the ensuite bathroom at the dorm was clean. There was a oil heater in the room and also additional blankets if you needed... More

We stayed at Brambuk in a double. I was very excited because the room was en-suite, but then saw that the bathroom had not been cleaned at all. I gave it a wipe over, and it was very obvious to me that the sink, toilet, and shower had not been touched since the last guests had used them. There was... More

We did the rock art tour with our guide Rooney and it was really wonderful and would recommend this to anyone who wants a taste of this wonderful culture. Rooney not only gave us an insight into the area but cooked us a bush tucker lunch that was amazing. Cheers to Rooney and Brambuk

This place was more than just a hostel. It has a large and cozy lounge for you to rest and relax. The fireplace helps a lot too during cold nights. The couple who own (or run) the place were really nice, friendly and helpful. Rooms were also very clean. If I were to visit Halls Gap again, I will definitely... More

The cozy lounge gives you a great place to watch tv or read a book on rainy days or evenings. It is very clean for a hostel and the manager bends over backwards to help everyone coming in. The location is great, just outside the town of Halls Gap, with the cultural center on the other side of the road.... More
