It was full atmosphere. The wood stove was a treat each evening after walking. Plenty of rooms to relax in and good kitchen facilities.

What a beautiful environment! Great building, location, services, rooms, and staff. I found all I needed for cooking in the kitchen, a warm fire to sit by on the chilly nights, big comfy couches and able to walk to the shops and beach. Highly recommend this hostel. I would definately go back.

We stayed during off peak season so there weren't many other guests. Rooms are basic - what you would expect at backpackers, but still spacious and warm. Lots of shared spaces like 2 kitchens, 2 lounges, a tv room and an office space. The rooftop was cool.

There were only two negatives about this hostel.Firstly, check in at 4pm is ridiculous.You should be able to check in at least by 2pm.I personally found this extremely inconvenient.Secondly, the showers were lukewarm at best. After being forced to spend the afternoon out in the township because I couldn’t check into my room,I’d gotten soaked and was so cold. I was so looking forward to a hot shower, but it never got hotter than lukewarm.That was disappointing.other facilities were excellent

Overall the hostel was clean and the double room was good value. The location of the hostel was excellent and there was plenty of information about attractions in the Otways.
