A few mates and I were up for the Ballarat Beer Festival (worth a look into) from Melbourne for the weekend. We arrived in the afternoon and had a beer. Lil & Darren made us feel at home instantly. They're great fun and put up with us being more than a little too rowdy at times

"booked out the whole hostel and had no complaints from anyone that stayed in any room."
"Try to get one as far away from the bar if you want to go to bed early on a Friday or Saturday night."

$50 - $64 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
