Best hostel stay for my trip
It was the best hostel stay for my trip as i compared it to the other 4 that i stayed in. :Pros - friendly staff - towels rent available - proper and comfortable room size, 2 double decker beds with a toilet in the room. - only hostel that has a wall mounted heater provided. - shared tv room and lounge available - fully equipped kitchen with decent and proper storing area for food items. :Cons - self making of bed and pillow sheets - no convenience store around the area, closes on is a 15mins drive - night time the area surrounding the hostel is dead, no car and you are screwed (lucky I rented one), no taxi or uber avaliable as i have checked for fun so if you are hungry than your best option is to sleep thru the night. Stayed this hostel to catch the Penguin Parade. Cheap and good hostel.

Great stay, I didn't notice it was a family hostel when I booked. Location wise, it's barely on Phillip Island, but again my fault for not researching. Staff were lovely, the queen sized bed was so comfy!
