The hostel is set on quite large grounds, so plenty of room to laze around. It's quite old and tired, but this really suits it. Security is lacking, but it doesn't feel like it's much of an issue as it's such a relaxed atmosphere. No lockers in our dorm. Kitchen and bathrooms where both old, but pretty clean. Definitely would return

Robyn (the host) is aaaaamazing! 4 bed family room was comfortable. There's a kitchen in each house, only a 10 minute walk to town, right on the beach. Super relaxed!

The facilities are pretty old and slightly run-down, could be cleaner.

Very chilled and nice place to stay! The perfect small town beach house, full of cool people. Very nice common areas, also nice outside garden and area, perfect to have a few drinks and chill while listening to the sound of waves. Apollo Bay is a lovely town, recommend!!!

Pros: Good location on the edge of town and short stroll to the beach. Lots of parking available. Friendly and helpful front desk. Great cooking facilities. Cons: Little security, no lockers in room, and room was left unlocked.
