Our stay here was fantastic. We had the entire floor to ourselves which offered both privacy and space for our group of 23 people. The large balcony was an added bonus that gave us the option of sitting outside for breakfast and dinner. All facilities were in working order with a large shared kitchen and bathroom. I would definitely stay... More

My dad and I stayed in a ten person dorm on the second floor and it was great. The spacious kitchen was always clean, the patio off-side the kitchen has lots of seating as well as a free bbq. There is an IGA a five minute walk away to get food and a large enough fridge to store at the... More

Just came back from a weekend here with a large group of people, we all had a great time and where extremely well looked after by the friendly staff that work there.

The hostel is relatively clean. We had a late check in but it was done with ease. There is a common TV room and kitchen for you to cook your stuff. The toilet is clean but there is only a common toilet which I felt a little upset as when I booked through a 3rd party website, they stated there... More

Thanks for your kind words. Over 50% of our room have a private en suite in the room. Its a fantastic to come down to Phillip Island in Low or Mid season and avoid the summer crowds. Love to know which 3rd party website you booked so we can check listing to ensure no confusion. If you happen to read... More

Fantastic hostel! We stayed overnight in an ensuite room with 2 twin beds. It was everything we needed. Very quiet (especially for a hostel) and we slept with the window open. Thank you for your hospitality.

The hostel was really clean and organized. The amenities were also good. They have a nice TV, computer and study room. The toilets were also new and clean. However one negative point was that the TV and study rooms were locked by 1045pm.

Stayed for 1 night in 12 bed dorm. Was very clean and comfortable. The facilities are good and the staff were very helpful and friendly. 1st floor balcony was closed which was a shame but 2nd floor was open and there were kids running up and down the corridor which is strange for hostels but over all had a great...

An outstanding place for groups with the ability to hire a whole floor with self catering kitchen and lounge areas. Rooms are very clean and the staff are only too willing to help. Also great for a cheaper accommodation option - particularly with kids. I will use again.

I’ll close this entry with some pictures and a little bit on the Big Wave Complex Hostel that I have stayed at for the past two days. It is considered one of the nicer ones that one can stay at in Australia. It has all the modern amenities - a huge kitchen for making meals, common spaces on each floor... More
