Terrible condition for expensive price
The room we were put in cost $28 AUS which bought us a shoe box room we barely had room to walk in with two bunk beds two of which had huge holes in them and were simply not fit to sleep in and the room was so extremely hot we wouldve expected some sort of attempt at cooling it down but all we had was a fan that had literally no effect at all. This room also was right next to the reception/kitchen/lounge area so we could hear everyones movements from our bedroom. The host seemed unmotivated and basically not going out of her way to get to know us or tell us about the area at all. To top it off the kitchen and bathrooms were closed from around 10am-midday which is ridiculous as that is when normal people wake up and want to get ready for the day. Its a hostel where people are relaxed not a hotel for businessmen where they get up at 7am. On our last night everybody held a movie night where everyone clearly knew each other and there was no attempt at inviting us, we felt like we had crashed someones home. We have stayed in numerous hostels across the world so i know when im getting ripped off and thats what happened in my own country without a doubt. And when i complained before we left the lady pretty much almost laughed in my face just to put the cherry ontop of the cake. This place is a joke and shouldnt be in business. If its $22 a night i would've expected this poor condition but it was completely over priced. Now i read that the staff looks at these reviews before putting it onto their website so of course no other tourists can read the real reality before doing the same mistake we did. Hope you take this on board and put a bit of effort into improving this hostel for future travelers.

Homey but not too clean
Everyone was very friendly but the bathroom in the "cottage" we stayed in was gross. There was mould everywhere and the walls were dirty with God knows what. The people who ran the place were very kind and friendly. So bring your thongs if you want to shower!

  This is a great little hostel. More like a home away from home as opposed to a backpackers. Fantastic value for money too, and that's before including the free breakfast. Apollo Bay is a great stop-off on the Great Ocean Road, and the town centre is only a 5 minute walk away from here.

  It's a small place - you feel like you're staying at a friend's place instead of a hostel. It has a great atmosphere and hosts, pleasant rooms, and a clean, well-maintained bathroom. It's a bit of a walk from the town center (it is right on the town boundary) but it's substantially better than the competition. I would happily recommend it.
