Being a smaller hostel and out in the country, this place lacks the modern, stylish look and feel of the city YHAs. But it's also half the price. The country cottage feeling was lovely. The window creaked all night and the bed was rather hard, but the heater kept the room gloriously warm and for $26, it was better than...

Rather than repeat another review I rate the "Little Gem" review a few reviews back. It is fair and accurate in my opinion. Port Fairy YHA is an ideal place to stay a night or two while exploring this delightful town or starting or finishing the Great Ocean Road. Historic and friendly.

The road finally turns away from the sea, and it was a 60 km dash in front of the setting sun to the historic town of Port Fairy, where I am to stay the night at the Port Fairy Hostel. This seaside hamlet was settled in 1835, making it one of the oldest on this part of the mainland. Whalers...

We stayed here for one night on our road trip from Adelaide to Melbourne and loved the quaint outbuildings in which we stayed. We had a double room at the top of an old barn/stable which was a good size. The bathroom facilities were a little dated, but all in good working order, as was the kitchen. The staff were...

Nice hostel, a bit run down, in a charming little village. The lady at the front desk was nice and our room was clean too. It was a nice stay for one night. There is a beautiful little island nearby, you should check it out!

Definitely recommendable. Very friendly and helpful staff. The hostel has nice shared areas like kitchen, BBQ site and a garden. I had a double room for myself in what seemed like old stables or some storage shack, renovated obviously. It felt really nice to sleep there.

Hidden way and placed back from the street this Hostel was perfectly located in the middle of town and round the corner from the high street, with all the local amenities and restaurants! The Welcome was first rate and our room was cosy and warm! We were given a small room in one of the old coaching sheds at the...

This hostel is situated in the picturesque town of Port Fairy. When I arrived there I was a little bit early for checking in. The manageress was not very friendly but she did let me in my room already. I had the 4 bed dorm to myself for the night, which was a nice little extra. The beds were on...

I choose YHA Port fairy as because it is YHA. Not really outstanding accommodation, but very value for your money. The room very modest, but the bed was comfortable. I think the place pretty much clean like other YHA hostel. Best of all, the Lady in the reception was very very friendly and show you the best part of port...

I only stayed for one night. But if I had more time I would have stayed several days. There was much to see around Pt Fairy, Portland, Cape Bridgewater, Tower Hill Gamer Reserve, Griffith Island to name a few.

“I had no problem with the place. Although the people in the room next door were a bit noisy but otherwise it was fine. It has a garden setting to sit and relax. Great area for cooking meals and an area to watch TV with fellow travelers. Eating places are within walking distance as is the Moyne RIver Pt Fairy Wharf and Griffith Island where mutton birds can be seen at seasonal times.”
