We arrived just in time for dinner (8.00 pm) to the hostel, but it was basically closing its bar we had to have some cup noodles (there was nothing else)--- I know in Australia people eat early, but I think you should stay open for a couple of hours in a hostel, and give the people a chance to have...

Absolutely loved this hostel. We met great people instantly and had a blast. All facilities were awesome with a big kitchen. Every hostel NEEDS a half done, 1500 piece puzzle! I spent ages going back and forth contributing to it. AmaZing book collection too!

Stayed here for 1 night as part of an organised tour in September 2016. We arrived at the hostel in the evening and were checked in fairly quickly. I'd agree with AFA007 that this is one of the best hostels I've stayed in - we were given one of the dorm rooms and these are all really large with plenty...

We absolutely loved our stay at the Port Campbell Hostel - this spot is everything an excellent hostel should be. The PCH had a great vibe with fun and cozy decor, a large, lovely common room - and a big, well equipped kitchen. They served pizza at night and coffee and breakfast in the morning (for purchase) - and are...

I was impressed by how clean the hostel was, the first impression felt like a hotel. The staff is also really friendly, they help you planning your trip, i even got a free lift. Thumbs up guys! The area is really quiet and peacefull. For a backpacker I would recommend to buy food beforehand, the shop in the town is...

I've stayed in a lot of hostels across the world and this one would have to be up there as one of the best. Very clean, spacious rooms, soft mattress. The hall way of the dorm feels like a fancy hotel! I also want to say I'm pleased to see that this hostel only has mixed gender dorms and no...

It was a good hostel, big clean rooms, lots of things in the kitchen, nicely decorated. Showers were ok, but I have had better (the waters went to wide). $32 per night is the cheapest. Stayed here for 1 night. Did not get the social vibe that I got in other hostels. And the internet sucks.

The hostel is located in a very strategic location, it only takes 7-minute drive to reach the 12 Apostles. In addition, hostel staffs were friendly and cheerful, not to mention that the room was tidy and clean. In my opinion, the plus of this hostel is its proximity to the beach of Campbell Bay(it only takes 5-minute walk), which is...

During my visit to Melbourne, Port Campbell Hostell is the most unforgettable place I've visited. The beach is just infront of our room. The view, the interior of the hostel is amazing. Not to forget the owner is very friendly and helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hostel is located at the heart of the idyllic coastal village of Port Campbell, on Victoria’s famous Great Ocean Road. Set in a picturesque horseshoe shaped bay in the pristine Port Campbell National Park on the aptly named Shipwreck Coast, some of Australia’s most iconic tourist attractions are less than 10 minutes away; including the world renowned 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, London Bridge and the stunning Bay of Islands. Our hostel enjoys superior ratings and reviews on key backpacker booking sites, has sustained an excellent rating on TripAdvisor and enjoys ratings that place us among the top Victorian hostels. Plus, we are regularly ranked as one of the cleanest facilities in Australia. Our hostel is a modern, custom designed facility that provides travellers with all the mod-cons to provide the very best budget accommodation for people seeking an affordable Great Ocean Road experience. It was meticulously designed and purpose built to cater to the needs of backpacker guests on over-night or short-stay visits. Its design provides a contemporary and vibrant accommodation experience, with 15 rooms offering a range of bedding types. While we are located close the heart of Port Campbell (with all the conveniences a traveller needs, along with a great range of shopping and dining venues) the hostel feels wonderfully remote. With breathtaking views across the Port Campbell National Park and northwards, up the Newfield Valley, natural light fills the hostel and provides both a unique and welcoming atmosphere. Being located less than a two minute stroll to the pristine Port Campbell beach, many guests can enjoy slipping off to sleep to the dull roar of the mighty Southern Ocean, pounding the cliffs of Port Campbell Bay. ... more   less
