Most lovely woman owns this place, she gives you a personalised guided tour on arrival and still does everything by pen and paper. Very cute place, you can drink in the common room as late as you want with the other 15-20 guests. Make your own entertainment or go to bed early its up to you

If your granny woke up one day and decided she was bored of retirement, and converted her seaside cottage into a hostel, this is pretty much what you would get. The owner was very nice, and the hostel is just a few minutes walk from the town's main (and pretty much only) street. There are two large common areas, excellent kitchen and showering facilities (there's even a bath!), and there is even a pool table. Recommended stop if you're doing the Great Ocean Road.

Hi, The lady that gave us the keys was a lovely person, very delightful. The room, the share spaces and facilities are to be desired (cold, pretty dirty and not really inviting) even if the host had electric blankets and a electric radiator for us.

Quite a cute little place, but a bit of an old and warn feel to it and its was pretty dead when we stayed for a night. However the staff were friendly, there was a good kitchen space and its good enough if you're looking for somewhere to stop along the GOR, we would book again.

Robyn is lovely and very helpful. Nice lounge with warm fire and plenty of things to keep you occupied on a quiet evening. Bathrooms were not the cleanest or most modern I've come across on the road but could be worse

We went in May so it was quiet but a great spot to stay when doing the Great Ocean Road. Would stay again.

Really friendly staff and great beachside feel. Every kitchen facility you could want, pool table, free wifi, heaters. Great stop on the great ocean road and walking distance of great cafes/ restaurants. Would definitely recommend
