Our hostel facilities were designed and purpose built with the needs of backpackers in mind… so we’re confident we provide the sorts of things you’ll be looking for.
Our dorm rooms are large, simple, and clean areas designed for maximum comfort/minimum fuss. They provide a place for you to kick back, relax and catch a decent nights sleep.
Each dorm is mixed-gender (unless you arrange a single-sex room with the hostel prior to your arrival) and offers beds in 4, 6 or 8-bed configurations.
Each dorm provides bunk beds so, for instance, a 6-bed shared dorm will have three sets of bunks in the room. And the bunks are solid structures… they’re not like some bunks which squeak everytime one of your room mates clambers up onto the top bed!
Each bed comes with a comfortable doona (aka: ‘duvet’ or ‘comforter’, depending on where you hail from) and we provide you with crisp, clean motel grade linen.
Finally, all our larger dorms offer great views across the Newfield Valley, and our largest dorms have beaut little private balconys, with brilliant views up the valley, over the Campbells Creek estuary and into the Port Campbell National Park. They’re a perfect late-afternoon spot to crack open a bottle of your favourite bubbly, and scoff some cheese and crackers (and you’ll love some of our local cheeses) as you catch up with your roomies!
The hostel has a couple of family rooms that, while still providing basic, clean accommodation within the hostel, are a little more “up-market”. Each comes with their own ensuited bathroom and a private balcony that leads directly onto the hostel’s front lawn.
While each room is configured slightly differently, they both provide a king-sized master bed and a couple of sets of bunks, so are able to comfortably sleep a family (or, group) of up to six people. Prices for these rooms start at $90.00 (low season), with additional charges costed on a per-person basis.
The hostel’s got a funky dining hall. It can seat 78 people at once.
We’re pretty proud of the fact that most of our guests have only good things to say about the hostel’s kitchen. It’s a beauty, equipped with everything you’ll need to cook up a storm (except food… you’ll need to bring your own!), with enough cutlery, plates, mugs, cups, cooking utensils (etc) to cater for everyone.
While power to our kitchen’s stove-tops and ovens automatically switches OFF every night at 10.30pm (…so the (potentially) “behaviour-impaired” (…drunk?) wanna-be Master Chefs don’t burn the place down if a late-night cooking adventure goes horribly wrong!), it remains ON to all the rest of the kitchen amenities such as the ‘fridges, microwave oven and hot-water urn. Power to the main cooking amenities is switched back ON (upon request), to suit breakfast times.
We also supply FREE tea and coffee, and you can purchase milk from our reception if you need that.
Finally, our sole kitchen rule is very, very simple: if you’ve used the kitchen to prepare your meal YOU are responsible for cleaning up after yourselves. Which means washing, drying and putting away the dishes, cutlery (etc) you used. We do NOT allow guests to let their dishes ‘drip dry’ on our dish-racks. Anybody found doing that (may) get tarred
and feathered and WILL be hauled into the kitchen to clean up their mess. And while all this sounds wayyyy too serious for a hostel… this matter really is as simple as cleaning up after yourselves.
