Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The Hostel itself is great,and the staff are more than welcoming. Very clean, amazing facilities, ample kitchen, confortable terrace and living room. Simply awesome. There's also a great Café just downstairs with really friendly people. However, do keep in mind that Newhaven is not at walking distance from Cowes or any of the main attractions (beaches, penguins), and public transport is very scarce in the island. If you don't have a car, think twice about staying here. There's bikes for rent at Cowes (highly recommend "Bicycle Repair Man" - Wayne) but they can only help you to a certain extent.

Fantastic experience. The rooms are great and had a great nights sleep. We had breakfast in the cafe twice and the coffee and food was amazing. The location is also great. Couldn't recommend enough!

Well stocked kitchen with great views. Very clean and very functional. Nice simple rooms and ping pong table. Good information about the surrounding area. Beautiful balcony and clean bathrooms and showers. Easy to check in if you’re late checking in and easy to check out if you’re leaving super early like I was.

Friendly Staff and the facilities really good. The location is nice, you are a couple of minutes to everything. I stayed in a shared room and it was clean and tidy as was the rest of the common areas.

I wouldn't recommend staying here, there was just beds in the rooms, the hot water in the male showers were warm at best, people are loud in the hallways making it difficult to stay asleep even though there are signs everywhere to keep quiet. For the price which was charged I don't think it was worth it, there was a $60 price inflation just for staying on a Saturday night, very disappointed with this stay.

Clean, well thought out hostel with kind staff. Good Wi-Fi coverage across the hostel and fast internet access on it. Easy check in. Location is good for visiting Phillip Island and for access from the mainland.

I was in a 2 bed with ensuite and it was comfortable and secure. Plenty of car parking around and the shared kitchen area is excellent. The coffee shop beside the accommodation is outstanding! While I did not do backpacker style accommodation, it looked clean and safe.

Ideal location for us to attend music festival at Churchill Island. We could not fault the accomodation. We stayed in a 12 bed dorm. It was clean and comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom facilities were also very clean and very spacious. I would happily stay here again.
