Staying at bells beach was an absolute joy - we didn't want to leave. The hostel is very clean and has a well equipped kitchen (even an oven!).

Very nice, cozy and CLEAN hostel. Host is very kind and cool, dog is totally cute. You can hire surfboards here. Very relaxed place to stay if you want to start or end your great ocean road trip or stay in Torquay for surfing. One of the cleanest hostels I've ever been to and very cozy atmosphere.

Loved my stay at Bells Beach Backpackers. Owner Sean and his beautiful lab Bella are very welcoming. This backpackers is very well run and very very clean. Short walk to the beach and even shorter walk to the Town Centre

the only down fall really is that its a lil drive from bells beach, and a short drive to the city beaches. walking distance to enough restaurants. i never took public transit, but apparently easybto use and a short trip to the esplanade and pubs! rooms are nice and clean. have small lockers for valuables which is nice.

A mate and I had a good experience at Bells Beach Backpackers. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the common areas (kitchen, lounge, bathrooms) provided the necessities. The owner / manager was friendly and happy to chat. I would recommend this hostel.

We only stayed there a short night, arriving quite late and leaving early next morning. However, the hostel looked cosy, clean kitchen with everythin you need, nice lounge area und parking spots right next door. Would definitely stay here again if I come visit Torquay again!
