I am always a bit worried when I book a hostel stay. However the price was way lower than other local properties so for one night it was worth the risk. i was unbelievably surprised. Booked a double room. Room was large and had ensuite. There was a kitchen on our floor that had everything. It was quiet which was pretty reflective of the times right now, but perhaps we got lucky. The bed was comfy, there was ample parking and I could make food and/or a coffee at will! It was very quiet and it was cheap! The only issues is that the property goes by a few different names and unless you know what you're looking for you may have a few different attempts to work out where it is - it is pretty poorly signposted. Check-in was literally picking up an envelope with our keys. Couldn't have been easier, although "security" was non-existent as the envelopes were just sitting in the reception area! All in all I would recommend although at the peak of tourist season I hear it can get pretty raucous, but I did not have that experience!!!!

We stayed at the island accommodation for about six months in total, we were classed as long termer which meant we were able to work for accommodation which is really useful when your a backpacker. The hostel just felt / feels like a second home. It is clean, all the common areas are well kept and has nice bathrooms. The dorm rooms are clean and you are provided with nice bedding. All the staff are friendly and helpful. We will be back one day, hopefully!

Excellent choice , staff on phone and at reception very friendly and helpful.I took a room and it was spotlessly clean.Very good value for money and the bus stop from Melbourne is meters away as having your own wheels is definitely a bonus on the island!! The Tourist Informtion is just a short walk away and you can walk across the bridge to San Remo and it’s amenities in 20 minutes. The desk staff arranged a car with Dianne’s Tours to take me to the penguins parade and back and that was a real bargain with excellent service, highly recommended.
