Unfortunately only stayed here for 1 night. The managers Jason and AJ gave me a very warm welcome, on a cold evening. Some nice stories, a nice barbecue and some delicious beer guaranteed a very nice backpackerish experience (even though I came by motorcycle). Clean, neat bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom. Nice living room and veranda with a tv and computer...

Our stay at Tim's was enjoyable. With a fully fitted shared kitchen, we were able to have a nice breakfast on our last day there. Tim is very friendly in giving advice on how to travel around the Grampians which made sure we did not miss any landmarks while there. A table tennis table outside also made our stay fun...

Tim welcomed us and gave us a tour of the facilities. All very nice, clean and welcoming. We had the ensuite room which was nice and comfy. Tim also suggested a bush walk that starts from behind his place. This was great as we were there on Good Friday and Hall's Gap was absolutely packed and the car parks at...

One night camping, one night room. Friendly local knowledge. Water was always hot. Kitchen had everything needed. Easy walk to town centre. Relief manager Sweeney knew everyone by name and kept the place clean and orderly. Kangaroos on the back lawn.

What a great place to stay. Lovely accommodation, everything you need for a weekends hiking and stuff. Graham looked after us as Tim was away. The hiking is awesome, we saw lots of birds and lizards. Stunning scenery. Tims place is right next door to a cricket pitch where the kangaroos can be seen close up and there are lots...

Tim's place was a really nice place, comfy beds and Tim the owner was such a great host. He spoke French to us and advised us wisely on how to discover the grampians during the day. I really felt like home.

Maybe a bit worn out but still nice and cosy hostel. Location is good so you can easily go shopping by foot and cook your meals in the kitchen. There are bikes for you to use and you can find kangaroos in the backyard! Tim has a dog.
