One night camping, one night room. Friendly local knowledge. Water was always hot. Kitchen had everything needed. Easy walk to town centre. Relief manager Sweeney knew everyone by name and kept the place clean and orderly. Kangaroos on the back lawn.

Tim's place was a really nice place, comfy beds and Tim the owner was such a great host. He spoke French to us and advised us wisely on how to discover the grampians during the day. I really felt like home.

Maybe a bit worn out but still nice and cosy hostel. Location is good so you can easily go shopping by foot and cook your meals in the kitchen. There are bikes for you to use and you can find kangaroos in the backyard! Tim has a dog.

Feels a bit worn and utilitarian when you first walk in - but give it an hour and it suddenly feels very cosy and homely! Nice little kitchen, free tea and coffee always a bonus! Good wifi. Great location - would definitely recommend.

Staying at Tim's Place was definitely one of the highlights of my seven months journey in Australia. The rooms are clean and tidy, the mountains are just a few minutes away for those who like hiking and Tim is really an amazing host. There are roos in the backyard EVERYNIGHT, seriously! And the place is surrounded by cockatoos and kookaburras....

Tim's place is a great budget place to stay. And close to all the walks and attractions. We stayed in a private dorm with ensuite bathroom which was perfect for what we needed.
