“Just a one night stop over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

We arrived late and with no reservation got the last room left with just a bunk bed. The place seemed more family and couple orientated than the other backpackers which we went to first and didn't like, also this was much cheaper for the two of us.

The owner is very laid back and runs a one man show, he wasn't even there when we arrived just a number on the door but we gave him a ring and he let us know all we needed to know. The house was safe and clean, kitchen had the lot and there was food for breakfast in the morning.

Next day we met the owner who was very friendly and gave us a few tips on what to do, I personally always like the smaller hostels run by the owners even if they aren't as flashy as the YHA or other big hostels they are more friendly and have a better vibe

Room Tip: the front rooms are nicer and quieter but are more expensive

The hotel owner told us there will be a light breakfast in the next morning, our plan before was to eat out early but now we changed our mind to accept the welcome.

The next morning, 7h30, we got up, nobody in the reception - office room, maybe too early, we waited, until 8h30, still no one in reception, I thought eating at hotel can save our time and leave more freedom on the day travel but actually the host didn't commit what he said, we went out to eat in the restaurent, the restaurents all have been served with many people sitting inside, finally we didn't see "light breakfast in the hotel" and this fake commitment wasted our time.

We drove from Sydney down the Great Ocean Road and hit Port Campbell at night, asking in the local bar for a place to stay. Luckily a local recommended Mark's place (Port Campbell Guesthouse) You will easily find it opposite of the police station, with a little sail outside. Very comfortable rooms, and home atmosphere, managed by Mark, who is truly a great host, has good recommendations where to go (after port campbell) about wine, very helpful in planning our route. One of the rooms has ensuit bathroom, very comfortable bed, others have shared facilities. We stayed in the Guesthouse part of the facility, there is another motel/guesthouse complex in front as well. We then decided spontaneously to stay another night (after spending the day in Timboon, absoultely great recommendation also by Mark) which is about 15-20 further north of Port campbell and has a destillery, that also sells wines, local produce etc. Andy (a friend of Mark) who is also sometimes there gave us a great off path tour on the cliffs, showed us which plants the Aborigines eat and use for healing. Spend another great day there absoultely great people, very personal atmosphere, they truly take care of their guest with a special value added and special attention! There is no wifi, but we were offered to use the internet on their computer. Light Breakfast included!
Never felt so home and staying like with friends with people we just met! Price was about 70-80 australian dollars (off season), in comparison to many other bad places we stayed abosultely bargain!

Room Tip: double room with ensuite bathroom!
