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

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

While areas of the hostel are very outdated the vibe fits the small quaint town. A good place to stop along the great ocean road but not fit for a long stay.

This is a basic hostel but comfortable and a great location a short walk from the beach. They have two kitchens, free BBQ and lounge area. Comfortable beds and newly refurbished toilets/showers. Perfect for a short stay in this small coastal town.

Super nice hostel, directly located at the great ocean road, some small houses that make up a hostel! Lots of space outside and in the kitchen/chill out room , though our 6 bed dorm was pretty small and not a lot of space to open your luggage. I loved the peaceful atmosphere between the people, still would have liked to find a locker to store my belongings safely. There were enough kitchen facilities , but had to wait several times for using the bathrooms.
