    • Liked: Cleanliness

    Stay was ok

    We were transfered to their sister hostel on arrival, it was quite disorganised. Room was ok, Im fine with stripping the beds in hostels, but was surprised to see we even had to take the bin out! Breakfast was ok, as basic as can be.


    • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Umm Not what I expected

    This was an interesting stay. It is in a house in a neighborhood that they have converted into 4 separate private rooms and a central kitchen for share. 1 bathroom and 1 shower also to share. This would be expeccted for a hostel. we had to go through a room that was cluttered with cleaning supplys and equipment to go outside to get to our room or to go to the main part of the house or bathroom. For the price, this place really fell short of our expectations.



      Room and shared facilities was ok. Reasonable for a night stay.

      4/5 Good

      Great Value for money

      The place was clean and comfortable. Very friendly and welcoming manager. Would definitely go there again if i need stay at Apollo bay

      Pros: Very good value for money

      Never been to a backpackers before. But it was ok!

      So i wouldnt take the family... but for a cheap stay over just somewhere to sleep it did the job and more! The bloke who checked my in was friendly and accomodating. He let me check in 3 hours after check in closure. They has tea. Coffee. Breakfast cerial. And a tv to watch the footy. She was rough around the edges but overall for wat i needed and for the $$$ worth it!
