I had a very nice time staying in this hostel. It's clean and very small and therefor very personal, what i really enjoyed, after having stayed in big hostels in the city where no one knows your name. The hostel is literally right in front of the ocean, you can have a direct look at it from the room. I'd... More

My friend and I had planned to stay only one night, but decided on staying an extra. The place was very clean and had everything we needed. You also can't beat the views. This place has better views than the hotels in the town! The front porch was the best place to have dinner and some wine. We enjoyed it... More

Ocean House Backpackers is by far the best option if you're spending some time in Port Campbell. Aside from the beautiful view of the water from the front porch, the accommodations are very clean with free towels for your use, as well as a kitchen that's always accessible. The host, Caroline, is such a sweet British girl, and she knows... More

My friend and I stayed here one night on our road trip of the Great Ocean Road. It is at an ideal location, just across from the beach and around the block from main street with all the shops and restaurants. Very clean and has great kitchen facilities. Cute little house that is quite spacious. Rooms very clean, we had... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this cosy place! The view is excellent with a little terrace with beach view. The rooms (mostly 6 shares with bunk beds) were clean as well as the kitchen and toilets. It was not fully booked so we got a room for the 3 of us. I agree that if you are there just... More

I drove into town and this was the first hostel I saw so I stopped. It's across the street from the beach, so a very good location. You have to walk up the street to a different hotel to inquire/check in. I paid $25 for a bed and went back to the hostel. I was the only one there so... More

This hostel has not been decorated or cleaned since the 1970s. I even saw a rat in the kitchen. Bathrooms are frankly grim. There was nobody there to give us the key when we arrived so we had to drive to a different hostel to get it - there was nobody there either, just a key in an envelope. Its... More

“The rooms at the front have a nice beach view. The rooms at the back are a bit quieter. If you are in need of internet, probably not the best place to stay as you need to go up the road to get access. But who needs it when you are on vacation?”
