Did a quick overnight stay and loved the place. Great vibe, friendly staff, convenient location, clean rooms but homely at the same time. Love Bella the black Labrador! Quick drive to the main street of Torquay. Would definitely go back again, especially when the surf's up!

It is the place to stay in Torquay, nice atmosphere, great and clean accommodation, lovely and friendly staff. Variety of beach for surfing very closely. Nice town to hang out or just walk arround. Close to supermarkets, cafes and outlets.

Great location, great space and relaxed atmosphere. I always stay here and its great everytime. They have a strict noise curfew which is good. If you need an early night you get one but easy access to bars if youre feeling more social!

It has a nice location and the facilities are clean and adequate. The hostel does not have the modern comforts which adds to its homely feel. Friendly and helpful staff. I would suggest more ode to surfing designs and more activities.

Cleanest kitchen I've ever seen in a hostel. Very welcoming owner and he has a lovely dog. All of the guests were very welcoming and the location was fantastic! I would recommend the stay to anyone starting the great ocean road!

It was tidy and we had a pretty nice room! It is near the beaches, so you can choose to which of these do you want to go. Also the supermarket is 5 minutes from the hostel. You had a familar feeling. The dog is great!

This was a really great place. Very clean, the staff was so friendly and the beds were comfy! It was also good as the guy there (I wish I got his name), i'm guessing he was the manager, was so chill and laid back and he made us feel at ease! He also didn't care how we had a little...

I stayed in the van-backpackers place : facilities are good - I really appreciated the fresh growing aromatic herbs at disposal :) Near the city center and quick access to surf beaches around by a small drive. Very nice place to stay in Torquay!
