With so many options in halls Gap it's hard to believe one of the best is the backpackers. We've been coming for years and stayed heaps of places with a range of star ratings and keep coming back here for easy, simple clean and relaxed cheap accommodation! Staff are awesome!

This place is probably the best backpackers Halls Gap has to offer. Like many others have said, it could do with some basic maintenance. Management is care taker style. The key is in an envelope and phone goes to message bank. One bonus is getting to see the film free of charge in the Brambuk Centre by staying here. The... More

We were a group of 46 in Halls Gap for a gymnastics competetion in Stawell. 20 teenage girls and their families. The backpackers has a great combination of dorm, double, trip and quad rooms perfect for our group configuration. Every room has it's own bathroom, which was great. Linen supplied, Very warm heating and open fire for the cold winter.... More

Depending on when you visit Halls Gap can get very busy and all the accommodation gets booked up. You need to appreciate that this is a backpackers hostel so don't expect luxury. That said compared to other places I stayed at the facility is starting to look a little tired and could do with a refurb. It has a big... More

I really liked how cosy the backpackers was and incredibly quiet as it's nestled among trees out of the town centre. The fire was kept going throughout our whole stay, and the kitchen was spacious and incredibly equipped. It's just across the road from the Brambuk Cultural Centre and a field full of grazing kangaroos! The management of the hostel... More

Stayed for a night with six friends and the manager allowed us to use the 10-bed room for seven of us. Although we arrived very late at night, the manager had already set us up the room with the keys awaiting for us at the reception. The place was well maintained. It's conveniently 2km away from a gas station and... More

We were met with nothing but hostility from the second we walked through the door. Yes we were a group of 26 backpackers which may have set off some alarm bells for the manager, however we caused no hassle at all. In fact we all lived in a hostel together and were perfectly aware of the etiquette. The woman in... More

Great hostel- the dorm was clean and warm and beds were comfortable. The large lounge area with a wood burning stove was lovely too. It was only a flying visit but everything was very convenient and the staff were really friendly although we only spoke over the phone! I'd definitely recommend this hostel.
