The managers at the Batman Fawkner Inn made me feel at home as soon as I came through the front door. Right off the bat they offered me to use their car to get some groceries (which was brave on their part, since Im Canadian and we drive on the other side of the road....). They were friendly, helpful and willing to do whatever they could to ensure I was comfortable and felt welcome. They work around the clock and seem to always be there when I had any questions. The ensuite bathrooms were spotless on arrival, as was the kitchen and the common room.They even offered free wifi internet, which is almost unheard of! I truely cannot say enough good about this hostel. I have been travelling around Australia for 4 months now and this has been, by far, the best hostel experience yet.
