    The staff were very nice, and the rooms very clean. The giant TV was a winner. We had a lovely courtyard out the back where we had dinner. The manager was very helpful. Overall, it was a pleasant experience for us. Carys

    The Hostel looks & is a historic building, but is a bit tired decor-wise! The kitchen facilities were good, the large BBQ in the courtyard was great- very hot to sear our burgers! Staff friendly! The twin room we had above the stables was a good use of an old building , but was a bit draughty- due to the westerly gales! Port Fairy has a beautiful river boardwalk/moorings and island situation!

    This hostel was just like a home away from home. The kids were warmly welcomed which is always very comforting for a parent. The kitchen for me was the hub of the place where conversations amongst strangers took place and travelling ideas exchanged. What a gem this place is. I will defiantly be back!!!

    Fan heater in the room was very dusty and did not seem in good electrical condition. Seemed a bit of a safety hazard to me. Otherwise a pretty good hostel with good bathrooms / hot water / common areas.

    The walls of my single room were just not adequate. I could hear everything that was said in the next room. Sleep was impossible until I banged on the wall and then they kindly stopped talking. Mould on the window frame was not acceptable plus the heater in the room was very dirty and very, very old. Having to get dressed to go to the toilet as a fore mentioned was in another building. Not good!

    Good location. Warm room. But the lady at the reception was not very welcoming or friendly. And she made a fuss when I asked her for some matches to light the stove in the kitchen!
