I have been to this YHA for about the last 6 years in a row. Each year we book it out for a weekend and enjoy everything Foster has to offer. Foster is a great little town and we love the pub, the cafes, the little shops, a game of golf and an afternoon at the local football match. The... More

My husband and I stayed two separate nights at this hostel with a couple of nights backpacking at the Prom in-between. John was very accommodating and we were able to use the code we were given on our first visit for the second visit, so 'let ourselves in', That's pretty nice when you return sweaty from a couple of days...

I have been to this hostel once a year for the past 5 years. We book the place out for a weekend and spend the weekend in and around the small town, including a game of golf and a trip to the local football. The hostel is really comfortable. It has excellent heating, which is great given we go in... More

A great hostel - only 3 rooms. Clean with fast wifi .... what more can you ask for ! Hostel is in closest town to Wilsons Promontory (The Prom), but this is still about 60 km from the main centre in the park. There isn't any public transport to the park. But this sounds like it is a general meeting... More

Originally, I planned to stay only one night - due to the weather I couldn't do my complete hike and so I stayed 3 nights. The hosts are very helpful and nice and try to help wherever possible. It doesn't feel like a hostel, more a home which are sharing more people. It was a really great stay and the... More

I loved this micro-hostel in Foster, the gateway to Wilson Promontory. It only has three bedrooms; a four bed dorm, a three bed dorm and a double. There is a lovely kitchen and TV room for guests. There is also free wi-fi, a computer to use for free and they let you use their washing machine for free. At $30... More

This YHA is a small jewel. It is located in Foster, a small town near of the Wilsons Prom Nat Park. It is a very small hostel (I think just 10 beds) in a beautiful small old house. Check-In works very easy and fast, the owners are very friendly and helpfull. Everything is very clean and there are no "party... More

My experience at this hostel was truly bizarre. I stayed here because it was the only cheap accommodation I could find near Wilson's Prom (campsites during the month of Jan are insanely difficult to get). When I arrived they told me that the hostel was full and that I would be staying in one of the two bedroom apartments next... More

this is probably the smallest hostel i've ever stayed in, with only three rooms. we stayed in a very comfortable double room, which was very clean - same as the kitchen and the bathrooms. the owners are very nice and can organise transport to the prom national park, i've you're travelling by bus.
