My first stay in a hostel for a few years and couldn't have been happier. Great kitchen with near complimentary coffee (20c) and all the utensils, pans, etc you'll need. Never overcrowded even at peak dinner/breakfast time.
The quiet sitting areas either side of the kitchen were a godsend, my partner and I having one room to ourselves with a bottle of wine (or three) and a roaring log fire. Tres Romantique!
Room was quiet but perfectly adequate with a second door that opened to the garden and five steps from where our car was parked and our bikes securely locked. The TV room seemed to double as a 'kids room' while we were there, so we avoided that, but really not an issue at all.
Halls Gap itself could do with a few more vegan options as far as dining out is concerned (even the vego pies had milk on them) so we went a bit hungry when away from the hostel but a nice spot to sit and have a coffee or gorge yourself on retro lollies.
Great time to visit too - rainfall keeps the tourists to a minimum and the waterfalls in full flow. :)
