    Very old building in a quiet town

    Old house with a nice atmosphere.
    Jean Francois K November 2015
    Lovely room with a beautiful 'sun roof'. Very helpful land lady on tourist spots and food options.
    Christie S November 2015
    Ok conditions. It will work but the place could really use a remodel and cleanup.
    Erinn L November 2015
    It is a shame that the reception closes so early, it makes it difficult for people doing the Great Ocean Road to enjoy the sunset at the Twelve Apostles ;-)
    Julie B November 2015
    Perfect location in small town. Go to Griffith Island to see wallabies and other wildlife.
    John V November 2015
    Expensive, compared to other hostels, but there's nothing else in the area.
    Judith v November 2015
    There seem to be many people living full time in the hostel, not quite the environment I have experienced in other YHA's in Australia. Ok experience but would not stay here again.
    Erin S October 2015
    A building with lots of history and consequently full of character. Very handy for the Main Street, port, beach and Griffiths Island. Handy for a dawn visit to Tower Hill National Park to see emus, kangaroos, koalas and numerous birds. Lovely outdoor area for dinning. The staff were wonderfully helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

    we were given semi detached cottage style room in the garden. we were staying with an infant and room was extremely cold and room looked like a dungeon. Check out time is too early. Very old building without any sound proofing and I'm not sure if it had any health and safety checks.

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
