This was the only hostel in the Mornington Peninsula area and therefore the cheapest option. We paid for a double ensuite room as it was only a little more than a shared double. It was about $80 each per night which was comparable to the other accommodation options which were starting from $150 per night but these were luxury places with breakfast included.
We arrived at the hostel, it was tucked away and slightly hidden by a large hedge. The driveway led downwards where there was a big puddle from the torrential rainstorm the day before.
There wasn't much parking space but we managed to squeeze into behind the kitchen.
The lady who greeted us was really friendly and helpful. Top marks for her!
She also recommended the spa to us for cold and wet days like this.
The hostel had a really nice and MASSIVE communal kitchen, dining and lounge area. There was a log fireplace, magazines, TV, DVD player and plenty of space to store your food in the fridge. There was also cupboard space to put your dry food.
Outside there was a wooden decked patio that led out into a cool bushland garden. There was a bbq and some chopped wood outside - it was not the weather for a bbq so we didn't get a chance to use it. The view was fabulous though.
The ensuite double room was lovely. Big queen size bed (least it felt like it), 3 or 4 different kinds of pillows/cushions, a chair, a radiator, cupboard space, dressing table and blinds on the windows.
The bathroom had a tiled shower, toilet and sink with hand soap. It also had a cool skylight - the place was awesome! There was also a big fluffy bath towel each, face towel and a bathmat towel.
The noise was not a problem at this hostel as there was hardly anybody staying there over the winter. However, we could hear people from the kitchen so on busy nights I imagine ear plugs would come handy. There is a door between the communal area and the rooms that helps keep the noise down but this is often left open.
There is NO WIFI internet so bring your own! We couldn't find any internet access anywhere nearby either during our travels but lived without it.
The place was ALWAYS cleaned by staff, perhaps a bit too much but I guess there's not much else for them to do on off-peak times!
Enjoyed our stay and would definitely come again!
