    Two words, "Great Place"
    William C May 2017
    It's really a gem! There isn't much around but a great spot if you want to go hiking at Wilson Prom. Loved the remote area and it gave us a chance to relax.

    I was happy about the service I had from YHA foster! The place was clean and tidy!

    Very nice hostel, just 3 small rooms, so quiet, personal and clean. Tidy kitchen with lots of equipment, outdoor seating in the back garden, TV, free laundry! The only small negative point: No key for the room's door.

    A little purple wooden home with squeaky floors in a small town. Pleasant little break, so recommended. Wi-fi on old XP computer is free and uncomplicated, though no word processing program. Clean kitchen, etc, and surrounds. A street sign in town may help, and chop the bushes away from the sign near the front gate.

    Basic but nice hostel in the centre of Foster, only 30 minutes driving from Wilsons Promontory national park.

    Small cottage in a small village. There's no reception, but if you pick up the white phone next to the front door it will connect automatically to the owners phone. We had some difficulties to check in as no one picked up the phone. But after a while the owner turned up and let us in. Facilities were a bit old but good enough. There's free wifi, which is good. Location is good if you want to visit Wilsons Promontory. Make sure you bring your own towel.

    Friendliness of staff is poor because we didn't see any staff member...
    Valer November 2016
    We stayed for one night in Foster after a day at Wilson's Promontory. We were the only ones there so that challenges the idea of a hostel experience a bit, but we enjoyed having a lot of space in the end. The place was clean and very functional.

    Excellent place from where to go explore Wilsons Prom. Very comfortable with everything you need for a comfortable stay.

    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.
