    Bells Beach Backpackers was great for our one night stay, and I could definitely see myself staying there longer. All the staff and guests were very friendly. Our six bed mixed dorm was big with comfy beds. The kitchen was clean and lots of pots, pans, utensils, etc... the bathroom was clean too and the hostel dog Bella was ADORABLE. I would definitely recommend this place to people stopping through or staying for a while.

    Honestly one of the best hostels I stayed in Australia. Rooms and bathrooms fresh and clean, cozy living room, well equipped kitchen, nice area outside for a drink and a chat... But most of all, great atmosphere with the host, the dog Bella and the other guests. Everyone was very friendly and I felt comfortable at all times. Thank you!

    Stayed for 1 night with group of friends in a mixed dorm when travelling GOR. Fantastic staff. Friendly and helpful. Bella the dog was an amazing addition. Facilities clean and tidy. No frills. Did not use the kitchen/living area ourselves but facilities looked reasonable and other guests had no problems. Good location. 15-20 minute walk from surf beach, free parking on site, close to town centre with plenty of supermarkets, restaurants and bars. No food/alcohol in the rooms. Serves its purpose.
