The room is clean and tidy. There is a warmer, which is extremely useful for chilling weather. The table tennis in activity lounge provided us fun time. The only complaint is about the sound insulation. The corridor access door to bed room made loud sound and it could be heard from room.

Not value for the money, irresponsible reception ”

Room is nice but it's not value of the money and dont even wifi in private room. Irresponsible reception, we called twice wanted to make my paymnt when checking out but the receptionist didnt come down and asked us just leave. after 9days we received email keep asking us to send them our credit card detail to process the charges of the night we stayed. How nonsense could this happen? I've done my part ask the staff to collect money but you refused to get down and ask me to do double work. wish you can improve your immature system or mayb others will just dont bother

Very clean and beautiful”

It was like a hotel. Everything was clean and tidy, nothing like a backpackers at all. The kitchen was well-furnished and we could use all the plates there. There was also a movie room and a table tennis table. On the walls were the tourist attractions on the island and the ways to get there. Except for the slightly high price, I’m contented with everything there :)

1 con would be the messiness of fellow housemates in the kitchen, not cleaning sink properly and leaving the stone on. Another also was not having enough blankets in our room when it was a very cold night. Cheers

Value for Money Stay ”

If you arrived in Philips Island without driving .. (Congratulations, there are going to be ALOT ALOT of walking. And I am talking bout miles and miles) Public transport are hard to see. We rented a car to drive to ohilip island and on our way, we dont see any buses on philip island. So if you are planning to go Philip Island, please do your research well. 1) Plan the itenary 2) Rent a car (It takes bout 4 to 6 hours to travel by public transport, but 1 1/2 hr to drive from the city) 3) There are several parks around on the island, so purchase a 4 parks or 3 park passes (it's cheaper that day) 4) You dont need more than 3 nights on philip island. (we stayed for 3 nights and we finished visitng all the park within 2 days) 5) It can get REALLY BORED at night, so dowload movies at your country before visitng. Cuz they don't provide FREE WIFI.

Just be aware it's a backpackers.”

Room was basic and didn't have much use for the facilities. I thought the place was much nicer than it is, it's a backpackers hostel primarily and the backpackers can be awfully loud and knock on your door in the night. It's a good place for a low price, just be aware of that.

Convenient, friendly service, quiet hostel”

Huge kitchen on each floor, all utensils provided, huge fridges & freezer to store your own food. Room was clean & simple, had everything we needed. No air con, fan only- could be really stuffy in hot weather. Super friendly & helpful staff. Can walk to chocolate factory & San Remo about 15min walk back over the bridge. Bit far from Cowes, which is the main town, definitely need a car to get there & The Nobbies/ Penguin Parade. Quiet hostel, not a lot of noise to be heard so good for families.

We booked this last minute due a family BBQ. We go there late but it was easy to find our way in. Room is very simple and clean has everything you need. The only disappointment was a hair dryer. In the morning when check out, the staff greeted us with big smile. Probably the easiest stay ever. Pokemon bonus- 4 poke stops here and caught lots of Pokemon's.

Nice, Clean & Good location

A very clean hotel and very short driving distance to San Remo or other tourist attraction places like Chocolate Factory, Koala Conservation Centre, etc in Phillip Island. The staff was friendly and so kind of him recommending us the places to visit with a complimentary map of Phillip Island. The reception counter is opened only from 9am - 5pm but if you wish to check in late, they may leave your room key at the reception & no worries for early check out too! Internet/WIFI available but chargeable. Overall, we had a pleasant stay, thanks!

Fully equipped gourmet kitchen, rooms are clean and nicely designed

Very pleased with Agoda offering lower rates compared to booking directly through The Island. We are very satisfied with the clean rooms nicely designed rooms, large and newly refurbished bathrooms, kitchen and BBQ amenities offered there at the Island are all top notch. We did not utilise the TV room as we have a TV in our room. The fully equipped gourmet kitchen shall be the highlight with basic pantry ingredients such as oil, salt, pepper, flour, foils are all available for free (leftovers from previous travellers).. Will definitely recommend The Island to friends and family!
