Good location just one block back from the beach.

Pros: Location, price
Cons: Better cleaning of doors and entry ways
Location: 1 block from the beach
Great place to stay if you are on a budget. The room we stayed in was tidy and clean and fresh linen and towels were provided. Overall, the place was good with one exception - the cleanliness (or lack thereof) of the doors in and out of the various break rooms - they felt sticky and looked dirty.

Great location, but not the best stay.

Pros: Location, helpful staff.
Cons: Bathroom facilities.
Location: The views from the lookout point up on the hill was fantastic.
Good location. Helpful staff. The sheets weren't clean when we got into the room. The guy at the reception was really apologetic and immediately changed the sheets. Talking about males' bathroom, the facilities weren't satisfactory. Two basins, one was blocked. Only one toilet cubicle with almost cardboard like toilet paper, not really helping with cleaning. One urinal with no water system, really stunk. Showers were ok, but dirty floor mats were hung right on the door in your face, not feeling good. Disappointing. KItchen was nice with sufficient facilities, pots and pans, tables, nice deck outside, which was great. However, nothing to do with the hostel or its management, and it's the general fact with hostels overall. There was one guy early in the morning in the kitchen whilst we were preparing our breakfast, in his 30s or 40s. He washed a bucket load of his dishes without using any kitchen sponge, brush etc... but then he washed his stupid (cheap looking) white shoes in the kitchen sink with dishwashing brush, and then scraped every single groove of their soles with a kitchen knife, and then dried them out using a tea towel. He probably spent good 15-20 mins to clean those stupid shoes using kitchen utensils and facilities. This is the level of respect a lot of people give to others in this kind of environment. We personally wash every single kitchen dish, utensil before and after we use, but every time we see that kind of behaviour, we are put off by the experience.

Hostel in Apollo Bay

This was a disappointing experience. I was not happy with the overall cleanliness of the hostel ..both my room and the corridor were smelly. The bed was not comfortable. The hostel is well equipped and in a good location, but I thought it was overpriced considering the condition of the facilities.

Nice affordable accommodation.

It is possible to check-in early and just collect the key when arriving. It worked really well. The hostel is placed very central and only a 5 minute walk from the beach.
