    Free breakfast. Private bathroom. Close proximity to public transport. Lots of cool shops around the property. The rooms were clean and the people were friendly. Bus picks up right in front of the hostel for Ocean Road and Philip Island tour and to the airport

    I would like a better breakfast selection.

    The staff was really helpful and friendly - there was always somebody to help. We had problems with air con in our room but we found the help every time - even in the middle of the night. Tipi app was nice app and gave the freedom to come and go. Laundry and kitchen were nice even in the basement and everything worked perfectly. Breakfast was simple but very well organized. There was couple of choices to have. And the location was just perfect too - easy to get to city center, airport and everywhere.

    Quite noisy place but with ear plugs was easy to sleep. Bar was lively and I think it should be - and the bar was the main reason for noise. But no problem for us. Public areas were quite dirty - especially kitchen floor and the toilets behind the bar.

    Great location. Modern and clean rooms. Good entertainment every night! When we arrived staff helped us organise trips and SIM cards. Everyone was really friendly. We extended our stay by two weeks and the staff helped to accommodate that! Brilliant for groups and lone travellers.

    Nothing - couldn’t recommend more!
