Stayed recently whilst visiting friends on Phillip Island. Friendly, warm welcome, comfortable clean room & amenities, good prices. I highly recommend TheIsland. It's odd to see a recent negative review, that person is not describing the same place I stayed! Believe all the positives, this is a great place.

Had to come back for a few nights and it was as good as ever. The staff were friendly and efficient, my room was clean and quiet and it's the best value on the island. The communal kitchen & lounge is well set up and spacious. Far better than staying in a shoebox room in a motel. The cafe next... More

Travelled with 6 others, my boyfriend and I were given an unexpected upgrade to a room with an ensuite which was lovely. We were just expecting an 8 person room. Very clean and modern, our room had a very nice TV and the local IGA (3 min walk) rents out movies so that was great. The heater in our room... More

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
