This place was pretty nice! Me and two other friends stayed in a 4 person shared room. The common spaces were clean and comfortable, and so were the kitchens. It all seems pretty new, definitely one of the nicest hostels I’ve stayed in! Would recommend!

Good facilities, great location, and pretty clean. We only stayed one night here but would have been happy to stay a bit longer. The gentleman who checked us in also gave us good recommendations on where to eat.

Hi Monika, The best place for information about the Great Ocean Walk is their official website. Google 'Great Ocean Walk' and it's the first link after the two ads (TripAdvisor doesn't allow me to post links in my answer)
