Probably one of the best hostel I've visited so far. Clean, quiet, on a great island! They have great. The staff was fine, and polite. Location is ok. Highly recommended, can't expect more from a hostel.

This place is awesome. Early check in for us free of charge. M'leia was amazing. She knows her stuff, recommendations and directions. The people are super friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean, mordern and comfortable. For a backpackers/hostel it certainly exceeded expectations. Cooking your own dinner as an option was actually a plus, as we could control our budget...

Super nice and budgetplace to stay in. Slept in a 6 bed room, and later on in a 12 bed room both were equally comfortable. The rooms are really clean, cleaned once a day, the rooms have big lockers to store your important stuff. There are two kitchens, one on each floor and they both are big and clean, so... More

This hostel is one of the best I've seen so far. The accommodation itself is very new, tidy and clean. The rooms have comfortable beds, a locker for everyone and also a socket on every bed. I never had a reason to complain about the bathrooms, because they got cleaned every day and they are light and new. The kitchen... More

The whole place is clean and tidy, the staff are friendly and helpful, the facilities are nothing short of fantastic, and the location is a very short stroll to the beach or some great cafe's, pubs, surf shops, etc. the building is fairly...

Could not ask for more from a budget accommodation! Brand new only 5 years old and equipped with everything you could want. The entire building is immaculately clean. Huge bathrooms with several showers and toilets. Comfy beds. Enormous kitchen on each floor with lots of appliances, dishes, and storage space for long term and short term guests. Two verandas -...

I am staying here now as I write this review.  Its is the noisiest worse unclean place I have ever stayed. Music and TVs are pumping well after midnight. Every door in the place including the central bathroom slams shut waking everyone (if you even managed to sleep in the first place). My private family room was not clean when... More

I stayed in a 6 bed dorm at the YHA on Phillip Island for two nights. The YHA was easy to find and in a good spot. I found the hostel to be clean and comfortable. I do recommend that you have a car with you on phillip Island because San Remo is one of the only places you can... More
