Staying at Tim's Place was definitely one of the highlights of my seven months journey in Australia. The rooms are clean and tidy, the mountains are just a few minutes away for those who like hiking and Tim is really an amazing host. There are roos in the backyard EVERYNIGHT, seriously! And the place is surrounded by cockatoos and kookaburras.... More

Tim's place is a great budget place to stay. And close to all the walks and attractions. We stayed in a private dorm with ensuite bathroom which was perfect for what we needed. Beds were clean and comfy. Tim is very helpful and knows a lot about the surrounding area. On an evening the kangaroos come very close to the... More

Did a solo trip through Melbourne and Victoria in 2009 and was a newbie to the 'hostel' experience. Took a single room at Tim;s Place and loved the warmth shown by Tim, the comfort and community of the people there, and the beauty of the surrounding natural walks and hikes. And Tim was a pal when he recommended another great... More

I can't speak highly enough of this place; I've stayed here three times (always on the easter weekend) and it's always lovely. The staff are friendly, including Tim the owner. I like how environmentally friendly it is - they even have a compost bin in the communal kitchen.

One of the most beautiful hostels that I've been to in Australia. It's located in the middle of the National Park, a perfect location to discover the Grampians. We slept in a 5 bed dorm in a hut with own shower and toilet and even a double bed. Room and kitchen were clean. Tim was very friendly and helpful. There... More

My cousin and I had been meaning to make a proper return trip to the Grampians; she wasn't all that eager in staying in a hostel again and I didn't want to spend too much so we compromised and got a private room with a bathroom. What we got was really good. The Tim welcomed us and was a good... More
