“Come Home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2012

hey Guys!

The Home @ Bells Beach Hostel is definitly one of the best Hostels of my whole Trip.
I really enjoied the familiar atmosphere in this small, cosy and very tidy Hostel. There is a very comfortable television room with several couches, a big television and a dvd player best spot To chill out after a day of surfing. This area and the good equippid and clean kitchen are the points where the whole hostel meets which allows you to get to know other guests really quickly.

The staff is very friendly and helps you with everything. Its like here just working mums.
I felt already home the day I moved in which is the reason why I've stayed 2 weeks instead of 1 or 2 days like planned.

The home hostel is really clean and the stuff is very friendly. You feel at home straight when you come trough the door! It is in a really central location, so you can reach the library, the supermarket, clothing shops and the beach in less than 10 minutes on foot.
In my personal opinion, it is one of the best hostels I've been in so far!

Location: Just out side of town. Around 10mins walk to supermart and eateries. 5 more mins and you will find yooueself at the beach.

Set Up: Parking is no problem. TV and Kitchen area is well kept. Has lots of sitting space out doors. Toilets are clean. Locker in the room, bring your own lock. Only a small fan in the room so rather warm during my visit in summer.

This hostel is one of the best I stayed in in Australia. It had a really chilled and relaxed atmosphere, was spotlessly clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We booked about a week ahead here as knew that it was one of the best places to stay at that end of the Gt Ocean Rd. Highly recommended. We also organised a brilliant mornings surf lesson through these guys.

Great hostel, I stayed with my girlfriend in a private room with shared toilet. It was spotless clean, excellent bed and good sleep quality. Good kitchen with all you need. 7 min walking from the town center. Good service, we were very well received and would definitely come back.
