Quirky hostel with regards to toilets and showers being on landing but really works well. Dorm size for 4 bed really good. Bed comfortable. Pizza for $10 ace. Saves worrying about cooking. However did look like a good kitchen if wanted to cook.

Stayed in a spacious, airy 4 bed dorm. Sleeping quarters (all upstairs) were quiet. Lovely relaxing big lounge downstairs. free wifi. Easy walking distance to centre of Port Campbell. I will definitely stay again.

Had a wonderful stay here! While I'll admit that the reason we stayed here is because we booked late and were looking for accommodations for New Years Eve and this was literally the only one showing up on agoda.com, I'm glad we ended up there! Booked a private double bedroom for my girlfriend and I. The room itself was no-frills,...

I am an accommodation owner in a nearby town. Stumbled across PCH and was seriously (blown away-inspired). It is serious WOW factor, If you are staying in Port Campbell you are missing out if you don't stay here.The owners have decorated this place so that every nationality is represented in some way. This whole concept kept me mesmerized for the...

We arrived just in time for dinner (8.00 pm) to the hostel, but it was basically closing its bar we had to have some cup noodles (there was nothing else)--- I know in Australia people eat early, but I think you should stay open for a couple of hours in a hostel, and give the people a chance to have...

Absolutely loved this hostel. We met great people instantly and had a blast. All facilities were awesome with a big kitchen. Every hostel NEEDS a half done, 1500 piece puzzle! I spent ages going back and forth contributing to it. AmaZing book collection too!

Stayed here for 1 night as part of an organised tour in September 2016. We arrived at the hostel in the evening and were checked in fairly quickly. I'd agree with AFA007 that this is one of the best hostels I've stayed in - we were given one of the dorm rooms and these are all really large with plenty...

We absolutely loved our stay at the Port Campbell Hostel - this spot is everything an excellent hostel should be. The PCH had a great vibe with fun and cozy decor, a large, lovely common room - and a big, well equipped kitchen. They served pizza at night and coffee and breakfast in the morning (for purchase) - and are...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hostel is located at the heart of the idyllic coastal village of Port Campbell, on Victoria’s famous Great Ocean Road. Set in a picturesque horseshoe shaped bay in the pristine Port Campbell National Park on the aptly named Shipwreck Coast, some of Australia’s most iconic tourist attractions are less than 10 minutes away; including the world renowned 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, London Bridge and the stunning Bay of Islands. Our hostel enjoys superior ratings and reviews on key backpacker booking sites, has sustained an excellent rating on TripAdvisor and enjoys ratings that place us among the top Victorian hostels. Plus, we are regularly ranked as one of the cleanest facilities in Australia. Our hostel is a modern, custom designed facility that provides travellers with all the mod-cons to provide the very best budget accommodation for people seeking an affordable Great Ocean Road experience. It was meticulously designed and purpose built to cater to the needs of backpacker guests on over-night or short-stay visits. Its design provides a contemporary and vibrant accommodation experience, with 15 rooms offering a range of bedding types. While we are located close the heart of Port Campbell (with all the conveniences a traveller needs, along with a great range of shopping and dining venues) the hostel feels wonderfully remote. With breathtaking views across the Port Campbell National Park and northwards, up the Newfield Valley, natural light fills the hostel and provides both a unique and welcoming atmosphere. Being located less than a two minute stroll to the pristine Port Campbell beach, many guests can enjoy slipping off to sleep to the dull roar of the mighty Southern Ocean, pounding the cliffs of Port Campbell Bay. ... more   less
