One of the most beautiful hostels that I've visited in Australia. Only 20 minutes away from the visitor center of the Wilson Promotory Nationalpark. Very clean hostel, great hospitality, awesome kitchen, beautiful backyard, laundry and fast Wifi. Shops and petrol station, etc. around the corner. All you need! Hostel is suitable for single travelers, friends, couples or families. Definitely not...

The host is super unfriendly and all about money. (Sadly/luckily) he is not in the hostel during the day. Just collects the money.. The Hostel itself is decent (bathrooms, kitchen, living room, etc.) and Foster is closeto the Wilsons Prom which is really beautiful. The beds are small. Wifi is good. free laundry

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
