I stayed for one night end of January and had a great time! As far as hostels go I rate this as one of the best in Australia. New, spotlessly clean and providing pretty much everything you wil want. It's got a huge, open-plan common area and one of the best kitchens I seen in any hostel. Bring your own food and cook your meals here - eat cheap and save your $$$ for seeing things and doing stuff.
Like an earlier reviewer suggested, this hostel is clearly NOT a party palace filled with drunken backpackers screaming and lurching around the place, so if you are looking for that sort of Ibiza experience I'd suggest looking elsewhere. The owners have a couple of very reasonable restrictions on when and where you can consume alcohol on their premises, and that seems to do a great job of helping stifle boozey, drunken yobo behaviour inside the place, at least from what I experienced. On the night I stayed there were tons of other guests and a really good social buzz, but the peace and quiet the hostel provided once people had hit their beds was great, allowed me to catch plenty of ZZs. Appreciated.
The free Wifi (1 hour) was a welcome bonus.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our hostel is located at the heart of the idyllic coastal village of Port Campbell, on Victoria’s famous Great Ocean Road. Set in a picturesque horseshoe shaped bay in the pristine Port Campbell National Park on the aptly named Shipwreck Coast, some of Australia’s most iconic tourist attractions are less than 10 minutes away; including the world renowned 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, London Bridge and the stunning Bay of Islands. Our hostel enjoys superior ratings and reviews on key backpacker booking sites, has sustained an excellent rating on TripAdvisor and enjoys ratings that place us among the top Victorian hostels. Plus, we are regularly ranked as one of the cleanest facilities in Australia. Our hostel is a modern, custom designed facility that provides travellers with all the mod-cons to provide the very best budget accommodation for people seeking an affordable Great Ocean Road experience. It was meticulously designed and purpose built to cater to the needs of backpacker guests on over-night or short-stay visits. Its design provides a contemporary and vibrant accommodation experience, with 15 rooms offering a range of bedding types. While we are located close the heart of Port Campbell (with all the conveniences a traveller needs, along with a great range of shopping and dining venues) the hostel feels wonderfully remote. With breathtaking views across the Port Campbell National Park and northwards, up the Newfield Valley, natural light fills the hostel and provides both a unique and welcoming atmosphere. Being located less than a two minute stroll to the pristine Port Campbell beach, many guests can enjoy slipping off to sleep to the dull roar of the mighty Southern Ocean, pounding the cliffs of Port Campbell Bay. ... more less
