The hostel was located right next to the mountains. It's a perfect place to stay to explore the Grampians. You can even find kangaroos hopping about in the backyard. The place was generally clean and quiet. You can meet all different sorts of people there. If you wish to climb the Pinnacle and do not have a car, the other...

I was here with a friend for 2 nights to see the Grampians National Park. Friendly wife and husband that run the hostel. They live on-site with their kids. Their man friend is a very lovely fellow. It was my first time staying in a hostel and I felt very safe there. I have heard a lot of negative things...

I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights. Facilities are clean and well kept and the staff are very helpful. The location is picturesque and peaceful. I saw several kangaroos and an emu at the back of the hostel and there are chickens in the garden. I would highly recommend this place as a base whilst touring The Grampians.

I stayed here one night while on a small group tour. I was pleasantly surprised at how clean it was. It was hands-down the cleanest Youth Hostel I have ever stayed in. The beds were comfortable and the atmosphere very welcoming. Loved the chickens hanging out in the front yard, and the kangaroos across the road gave it a very...

I love this hostel.There're many chickens and a cute and friendly bunny in backyard. I'd been there for 2 nights traveling around Grampian which wasn't enough. The kitchen was nice and facilities were great and clean. The supermarket and shops weren't far. There're a lot of kangkaroos come out in early evening and emus aswell. I'd like to feed chickens...

Stayed there 1 night with a group. The hostel is very comfy and cosy. There is free wifi in the common area! There is a kitchen to cook and some books to read. The rooms are quite simple but clean. Too bad we couldn't open the window properly as we were just a little bit too warm. The bathrooms and...

Hi Laurence Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay! Sorry about the issue with the window - if you spot problems like this at any of our hostels please let the managers or reception staff know - so we can jump right on them and get them fixed up. Hope to see you again at another YHA.

This hostel and those that run it embrace the YHA ethos. It is clean and accommodating. I loved my morning's egg which came courtesy of one of the many resident hens.

The township of Halls Gap is small and quite walkable, and the YHA is pretty easy to find. It's one of the first buildings you see after turning into the main street, however if you catch the local bus from Stawell the bus driver should be able to drop you at the front door if you ask. Overall the YHA...
