    Was a great stay, it was a quiet weekend guest wise but it was lovely and relaxing in the lounge and I enjoyed my tiny bedroom as it meant I didn't spread out to much. The staff I dealt with were all lovely and friendly and will stay there again if I'm in Port Fairy during the quieter time of the year and I would book the same room again.

    Port Fairy has a lot to offer, even in the middle of winter. The family room was really cosy. We met some friendly overseas travellers with interesting stories.

    Helpful staff and clean, well-maintained facilities. Room was a bit cold at night though, and there wouldn't have been a lot of manoeuvring room if all four bunks were filled.

    Heritage here means small, cramped rooms with walls super thin. You'd get much better value for money at more modern hostels. I also think it's outrageous you have to make your own beds.
