My friend and I stayed here the night before we set off to do the Grampians Peaks Trail. We got a private room which has a full bed and a set of bunk beds. They have fans but no A/C (not really a problem unless you have a really hot day). Free wifi in the public areas downstairs and a...

A great place with helpful and friendly managers. The kitchen was awesome, the beds comfortable and the overall vibe fun. Would definitely recommend this place to travellers and family. I went with my husband, brother in law and 80 year old father!

I found it this hostel clean and easy to get at from halls gap town centre. Has one guest comman room, tv room, kitchen and outdoor chairs. Though the owners do have pythons on premises you wont see them at any time unless you ask owners to show them to you. They are out of reach and kept away. I...

Beautiful hostel with great outdoor area, big commune area and kitchen. Very clean. Small rooms of max 4 people, quiet. Lots of games and movies and the best of the entertainment is the owners reptiles! The staff will help you out with anything you need. Great stay and prime location.

I have been staying at this hostel once or twice per year for the last 10 years and it has always been a great experience. However, I won't be staying there anymore. Other reviewers have mentioned the reptiles...yes, one of the two guest lounge rooms is now full of reptile enclosures, snakes particularly. At times the snakes could be seen...

Don't get me wrong this is a decent hostel with good facilities and good prices, but I just found it all a little frustrating. Typical YHA older crowd, cold common areas and never anybody ever on front desk. The family room (1 bunk 1 double) is certainly good value at $27.50 pp however

If you are looking for a basic place to just spend your nights then this will do. The rooms are generally quite clean and standard. The staffs are pretty rude and unhelpful. As mentioned in another review, you can not get any staff support before 5pm. If you do not expect to spend much time there and are happy with...

What a disappointment ! We had a wonderful stay here in 2013 but this year's experience has been woeful. This hostel seems to be on the skids - cleanliness in bathrooms and kitchens not up to standard, missing door handle into lounge meaning awkward opening of door , smelly freezer section of fridge with frozen , dead mice used as...
