My friend commented that this is one of the better hostels that she had tried so far. It's my first time staying at hostel and the stay is definitely better than my expectation. We booked 4-bedder with private bathroom. It's clean and convenient. Just a note to bring your own towel. It was just a little unlucky that the elevator... More

The Island Accomodation is awesome. It's a really great place in a really nice location and we could spend ages there. The Hostel is very clean, spacious, staff is always friendly and helpful. This place actually has a big kitchen where quite a few people can cook at the same time. We already visited two times and would love to... More

Only stayed here a couple nights (and this review is long over due since it's been a few months since I was there) but I found the place to be clean, quiet, spacious, and in a relatively good location. Rooms felt modern and clean, and staff were really helpful. Nice kitchen and common areas too.

The location is perfect. There wasn't much around that I quite like in the area that's got the right price. The hotel prices in Phillip Island was surprisingly expensive but the staff were very friendly, helpful and were always smiling. Our room was very basic - small window, tiniest TV I've ever seen, modest bed, barely any furniture but it... More

The entire hostel was very well organised, clean and the staff lovely. The location is perfect to be able to visit all the surrounding attractions and Wilsons prom is not far! Bed's were more very comfortable and I would highly recommend The Island Accommodation to be your first choice if you are travelling anywhere near the area.

I've been staying at the Island accommodation for almost 3 months now. It's a very clean hostel with very nice facilities. The kitchens are very well equipped and also provide an oven and a deep freezer. The TV rooms are good place to hang out whenever there is a rainy day. The hostel has two levels and a sundeck (beautiful... More

We arrived here early one day and were told to go to the information centre to get information and tickets to local attractions while waiting for our room to be ready. This was the first YHA that I was at that did not offer desk tour planning or tips. The facilities were spacious and okay but nothing special - beds... More

My stay at The Island was brief but pleasant. In short it's one of the nicest hostels I've stayed in (and there've been quite a few!) Very clean and pretty quiet - but then everywhere on Phillip Island is. At first it seems a bit cut off from everything but you soon realise that the attractions are spread out all... More
