    We had an absolutely fabulous stay at the Bells Beach Backpackers. We stayed in a 6 person dorm for two nights during the Rip Curl Pro. Probably some of the most comfortable beds we’ve had at a hostel. Very clean and chilled vibe. The owner and his dog were great hosts and made everyone feel at home. Highly recommend staying here if visiting Torquay. We will be back.

    Totally recommend. The owner is great and super personable. Got a chance to talk with him for awhile and made it feel like I was staying at a friends place. It’s right off the main road near the surf shops and a had a great little coffee shop nearby. About 10-15 min walk to the ocean and restaurants. The room I stayed in only had one plug in for 6 beds.. but the beds themselves are comfy and clean with lockers in the room. Overall- go for it! Comfy stay in a cool little town
