Despite deliberately booking & paying online with ample notice with arrival time of 10pm. I then was left to knock on lounge window & despite a room full of people, I was ignored. I then was unable to be let through the front door & was told through the lounge window. That they knew I was coming, but that I... More

If you like ultra modern, then this is not the place for you! However, if you like somewhere with a good bit of history then this is a great place to stay! Yes the décor is a bit dated, however, the rooms are quirky, theres a lovely small garden area and a BBQ, the shared spaces are clean and tidy... More

This hostel is located in an older building and so it has charm. There is a nice cozy sitting area and the common areas are quite attractive and charming and it has a very quiet feel to it. There were not many people staying here during my short overnight stay so getting into washroom and showers was no problem. On... More

Stayed at this hostel for one night only - thankfully. As soon as I walked through the door the place was very depressing. This YHA clearly believes that their word "youth" doesn't apply to him. The hostel was set out as an old persons home. The netted curtains and uncomfortable furniture really did not make you feel at home. The... More

I've stayed in this hostel a few times on my way from Adelaide to Melbourne. It's out of the way, but it's worth it. The kitchen is really well-organized with everything you could need. Sometimes there are home grown potatoes or mint etc for your use. There is also a chest freezer for use (as week as 2 fridges).. The... More

This hostel has to be one of my favourites so far. It feels very homely and everything is very tidy, well equipped and ready for your convenience. The manager/ owner is incredibly friendly, helpful and full of useful advice about the local area and what you want to do during your stay or your onward travel. The only downside was... More

Port Fairy is a lovely little place and the hostel is a great place to stay. It's quiet, well-equipped and has off-street parking. Bathrooms and bedrooms are clean, though be aware that there aren't a lot of showers as in other larger hostels. The lady who runs it is friendly and helpful; it's a very easy, laid-back place to stay.

Stayed for one night and booked online. When we booked there was only a twin room left, when we turned up we were offered a double without asking so that was cool. The room was really clean and so were the bathrooms/showers. I would stay there again happily.

Being a smaller hostel and out in the country, this place lacks the modern, stylish look and feel of the city YHAs. But it's also half the price. The country cottage feeling was lovely. The window creaked all night and the bed was rather hard, but the heater kept the room gloriously warm and for $26, it was better than... More
