  • The Great Ocean Road is a definite must-do for anyone travelling through Australia, so it's good to have a decent backpacker at the start. Makes for a nice start and/or end to the trip. The location, staff, and price make it a great value. And their dog, Bell, is lovely as well.

  • Lovely place, good conditions, tide and clean. Perfect. Amazing atmosphere, looks like a big home with many brothers, i made good friends over there. Very good place to stay in that area.

  • I am in my 50's and had never stayed at a hostel until this one. My experience was top notch. The warm welcome when my group arrived, the common areas, the bathroom, the room I slept in, the bed, the people, everything was wonderful. I was a little worried about staying in a hostel. Bells Beach Backpackers showed me that there is nothing to worry about.

  • Had an awesome time at bells beach backpackers. the common area was fantastic and had a great vibe, the kitchen was well stocked and had space for everyone and the outside area was fantastic just for hanging out and if you wanted to chill. there was also a large shopping mall/coles nearby which was great as we cooked when there. would definitely recommend if you're heading towards the surf coast/great ocean road
