The hostel is quite worn down, but it was more or less clean (not my sheets, they were pretty much stained). There is a four-bedroom as well as a fourteen-bedroom. In the four-bedroom you have access to a terrace with a nice view. I missed free WiFi - there was no WiFi access at all. The location is pretty much...

Nice property with great communal facilities (kitchen & bathroom). Conveniently located close to a nice little pub. All in all the 13th Apostle is a great option for a one night stop over on the Great Ocean Road route!

Stayed here whilst visiting the Apostles. We couldn't make out what the owners were trying to achieve. The showers were terrible. The kitchen area is tiny and no way a large enough for a tour group. The living area was clean and tidy but not enough space to everyone to sit and relax and therefore some people were confined to...

When we booked this hostel we were expecting basic facilities but not quite to the level we found. Our room was extremely basic but we couldn't lock the door to the outside. Basic provisions for breakfast were promised but there wasn't enough tea or coffee for everyone. The cooking facilities looked to be very basic. The beds weren't very comfy,...

It's a wonderful and quiet place. 15 minutes driving from Port Campbell. The owner is also the owner of the opposite-of-street bar 'The 12th Apostles Inn'. Every room of the hostel is well-established with heater, French window and balcony. You can enjoy DVD in the big living room at nght or spend time with friends in the Inn. The Inn...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT We are the closest hostel to the 12 Apostles, Australia’s most picturesque and iconic tourist attraction, a 5 minute drive or an hour and a half hike along the Great Ocean Road Walking track. Leaving Melbourne, it is a scenic 3 hour drive along the Great Ocean Road. Great accomodation, clean and simple at reasonable prices, a common room, fully equipped kitchen and lounge area. Large balcony with beautiful views and an outdoor cooking area perfect for those wanting to cook their own feast and enjoy the atmosphere. A few hundred metres to the Gellibrand River for a swim, and a short walk to Champagne Heads, a giant secluded beach with magnificent views, which offers the opportunity to see some of our most famous wildlife including kangaroos, ecidnas, many types of birds and even seals. We offer free breakfast and off street parking and we are just across the road from the local pub which also offers great meals. We have 24 hour contact, so feel free to call and arrive late. ... more   less
