I was so amazed with this amazing & cheap place! The owner is a genuinely nice person who's looking after you and not just after your money. After getting there quite late with no food, he didn't hesitate to call his wife who was on her way back to bring some food from the supermarket since the one in Halls... More

I found this hostel to be peaceful and relaxing. It was nice to get away from the loud party hostels you find in Melbourne. I liked the fact it was within walking distance of the supermarket, Venus baths and the Pinnacle. You got lovely views from the outside area of the hostel. I found it frustrating that staff were rarely... More

The hostel was located right next to the mountains. It's a perfect place to stay to explore the Grampians. You can even find kangaroos hopping about in the backyard. The place was generally clean and quiet. You can meet all different sorts of people there. If you wish to climb the Pinnacle and do not have a car, the other... More

I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights. Facilities are clean and well kept and the staff are very helpful. The location is picturesque and peaceful. I saw several kangaroos and an emu at the back of the hostel and there are chickens in the garden. I would highly recommend this place as a base whilst touring The Grampians.

I love this hostel.There're many chickens and a cute and friendly bunny in backyard. I'd been there for 2 nights traveling around Grampian which wasn't enough. The kitchen was nice and facilities were great and clean. The supermarket and shops weren't far. There're a lot of kangkaroos come out in early evening and emus aswell. I'd like to feed chickens...

Hi Laurence Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay! Sorry about the issue with the window - if you spot problems like this at any of our hostels please let the managers or reception staff know - so we can jump right on them and get them fixed up.
