“Amazing accommodation and hosts, a must stay!!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Stayed here on the weekend. Was originally going to book 1 night and decided on booking 2 nights...............wow I am glad I did as there was so much to do in the Grampians - Rock Climbing, more walks than you can poke a stick at (for all abilities), loads of native Australian animals to see (all in the wild), Quad Bikes - and this is only a few of the activities available!!

The accommodation at YHA Grampians is first class - amazing and well stocked kitchen, loads of DVD's/board games to keep you occupied, SUPER SUPER CLEAN and has an amazing/comfy/cozy atmosphere about it.

I have to give a special mention to the managers Stu and Rebecca, they were really helpful, made us feel right at home and I can honestly say that if they were not there our stay wouldn't of been as good!

What a fantastic hostel - stayed as part of a block booking of Morris dancers and the facilities were superb. Spacious but also cosy communal areas, great kitchen facilities and excellent bedrooms. The herd of kangaroos occupying the rear lawn was a bonus! For the energetic amongst you, don't miss a walk up to The Pinnacle and the night skies are a joy for astronomers like me.

travelling with a large group so we had booked up the whole place for 2 nights. reception was brilliant and rooms perfect for us all. They were clean and functional but that was all we wanted. Comunial showers but again it was a Youth Hostel. Kitchen area was fantatstic when trying to do mass cooking breakfasts and the use of the BBQ was brilliant. Added bonus were the Kangeroos that seemed to live out the back - a whole herd, is that the right word, of them.
Stay here it really is brilliant value for money.

This hostel is really great. The rooms are clean and there is a big kitchen and three really nice living rooms. So in the evening we had a living room with a cozy couch for us. The price for the internet is also quite fair, there is a day ticket for 5 AUD. But the best are the kangaroos in the garden. There are about 20 kangaroos just sitting 20 meter in front of the hostel. And there are also a lot of birds in the garden.

If you are in the grampians you should stay there!

Stayed here for a few days after a long haul flight, and a road trip from Melbourne. To be quite honest I couldn't fault it and it was better than many other places Ive stayed at far greater cost. The surrounding area is beautiful and aceess to the trails from here is easy and a absolute must do.

Halls Gap itself could be defined as a bit touristy but it's not surprising and it wasn't as bad as expected. The local supermarket is really expensive so if you are on a budget take as much with you as you can is this may end up being your biggest expense.

I've been to the Grampians several times and have always stayed at the YHA, with constantly satisfactory experience. The YHA is not so large (so it tends to get booked out quickly during busy periods), but always clean and well-maintained. The rooms are cosy, the kitchen large and very well equipped. Add to this a great location - there's a hiking trail and sporting ground nearby, frequented by kangaroos. If you want to go to the center, it's only 15-minute stroll away.

The people at the front desk were really helpful and easy-going (maybe better than concierge at some hotels!). We wanted to go out for dinner and they helped us to make the reservation.

If something could be improved, probably it's the small common room with the TV - it can get a bit squeezy if a lot of people want to watch the TV. There's a larger common room beside the kitchen, I think the TV would be better situated there.

Love the Grampians and we love staying at this wonderful YHA. Spent 3 nights, the weather was not too hot for January and the hostel was not too busy which was a bit of a surprise for this time of the year. This hostel is well kept and comfortable and the managers Jason & AJ are very helpful and friendly. The place to stay in in Halls Gap.
