We stumbled across this hostel in Lorne, and because it was low season, we were offered a private room for $70/night. The room is obviously usually used as a dorm as there were 5 beds in there. It was great for the 2 of us, but with 5 in there it would have been very crowded!

Good location, just outside the main town, right near the supermarket/bottleo. The owner is very nice, and is more than happy for you to have a few beers on the balcony with a lovely view of the water. However, he does have VERY strict rules on smoking - when we were there 8 guys were being chucked out early the next morning after the owner found baccy on the kitchen counter - you have been warned!!

A lovely location, quiet and laid back. I stayed in a dorm for a couple of nights and it was comfortable, clean and had a real vibe that's missing in so many other places. All the people I met were friendly and down to earth. Also make sure you try the Erskine river tea house which made the best cuppa I have ever had!

We stumbled upon this place by chance and it was just excellent. Walked up the stairs and found a sign with a phonenumber to call. The nice owner said that sure we have a room, key is in the door, just move in and pay when I get back.

Really cosy room and nice kitchen + toilets/showers, Best part was of course the veranda with wild Cockatoos all around.

I would really recommend this place for anyone looking for a nice place with great atmosphere for a good price.
