I've stayed at many hostels in my day, this was one of the nicest. The 4 person dorm room was clean with lockers and a back door leading out to a little patio. The bathrooms were clean with hot water. There is a huge double kitchen fully stocked and lots of space to store your food. The lounges have fire places and lots of couches. It was cold during my stay, but they also have lots of outdoor seating and a BBQ. They have chickens on the property as well as free bike hire. The location is superb.

This is one of my favourite hostels in Australia. It was designed as a purpose built eco lodge and features loads of comfort and many world class energy saving features. The Grampians is a fantastic area with extensive bush walking, a major aboriginal cultural centre and its half way between Melbourne or Adelaide. The hostel has a sophisticated but laid back feel. If you are not an experienced bush walker be sure to see the National parks information centre for maps and advice to suit your interests, fitness level and time. Be careful of fires and stay tuned to local radio in the warmer months. A major fire occured here 2 weeks after I stayed here: but fires are a natural part of the Australian bush and cause amazing regeneration and renewal to many plants. So like most natural hazards be aware, take care and you will be fine. Fresh & supermarket food options in Halls Gap are a little limited & pricey: stock up in Stawell or Horsham before you get here if you plan to self cater but there are nice pubs for meals a couple of km away from the hostel.
