Great stay, I didn't notice it was a family hostel when I booked. Location wise, it's barely on Phillip Island, but again my fault for not researching. Staff were lovely, the queen sized bed was so comfy!

Great, cheap, clean and easy. Love that it's just over the bridge on the island and only minutes away from incredible beaches and activities. Will stay again and again!

Just what I needed, warm comfy bed and hot shower

Loved it. Just the ticket for Motorcyclists. Just what I needed, warm comfy bed and hot shower. Great for exploring or just passing through.

Convenient and nice for what I required

Rarely stay in hostels but required cheap convenient accommodation for the weekend. Arrived late Thursday night and found my key card waiting for me at reception. Room was easy to locate, clean and locker space quite large. Facilities are nice consisting of a kitchen, dining, lounge and separate TV room. Other people were friendly, respectful and I felt comfortable there. Was perfect for my requirements and the cafe attached to the bottom was good for my morning coffee.

Excellent facilities, good location.

Pros: Friendly staff, very knowledgeable too. Well equipped kitchen. Spotless amenities.
Cons: Consideration to the provision of free wifi, and somewhere else to socialise after the kitchen and outside seating area is closed in the evening.
Location: Penguin Parade, Oswin Roberts Wildlife Reserve and Koala Sanctuary. Hostel is located close to an IGA and bakery & 300m from other information centre.
Very friendly welcome on the no-hassle check-in, brand new facilities, clean bedrooms and bathrooms. The only slight negative was the lack of free wifi (tokens were available to purchase reasonably cheaply) though granted it did encourage much more interaction between guests! The shared kitchen was very well equipped, though it got locked up at 2230ish (meaning people had nowhere to go after this time to continue socialising except their rooms - disturbing other guests in the rooms then became an issue.)

Clean, spacious and comfortable.

Location: Location is fine if you have your own transport to get to places.
Clean and spacious. Family room could do with a small lounge for added comfort.
