We stayed at this place over a couple of days in a 6 bed dorm. We had the room to ourselves which was unexpected and won't happen everytime we know but it was really nice! There was quite a few people around the hostel but generally people kept themselves to themselves. The showers and toilets were always immaculate and well... More

This was the first YHA my family consisting of primary school-going children stayed in when we reached Australia. It was a good experience. There is a lift which was useful because we had heavy luggage and the room was on the second floor. Ours was a family room with an attached toilet which is useful when you have young children....

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

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.
