Only stayed here a couple nights (and this review is long over due since it's been a few months since I was there) but I found the place to be clean, quiet, spacious, and in a relatively good location. Rooms felt modern and clean, and staff were really helpful. Nice kitchen and common areas too.

The location is perfect. There wasn't much around that I quite like in the area that's got the right price. The hotel prices in Phillip Island was surprisingly expensive but the staff were very friendly, helpful and were always smiling. Our room was very basic - small window, tiniest TV I've ever seen, modest bed, barely any furniture but it...

The entire hostel was very well organised, clean and the staff lovely. The location is perfect to be able to visit all the surrounding attractions and Wilsons prom is not far! Bed's were more very comfortable and I would highly recommend The Island Accommodation to be your first choice if you are travelling anywhere near the area.

The hostel has two levels and a sundeck (beautiful...

My stay at The Island was brief but pleasant. In short it's one of the nicest hostels I've stayed in (and there've been quite a few!) Very clean and pretty quiet - but then everywhere on Phillip Island is. At first it seems a bit cut off from everything but you soon realise that the attractions are spread out all...
