Lovely hostel, amazing building. Really good facilities, awesome lounges. My only 'complaint' would be the looong corridor; walking from our room (at the far end of said corridor) to the kitchen always seemed to take an eternity.
Apollo Bay is an essential stop along the Great Ocean Road, nestled between the rainforests of the Otway Ranges and the Apollo Bay surf beach. Apollo Bay Eco YHA offers a unique seaside getaway, combining guest comfort and stylish dcor with a range of innovative features to reduce the impact on the environment.Our hostel is an excellent alternative to motel accommodation, giving priority to guest comfort with seven family rooms, twelve double/twin rooms and a maximum of four in multi-share rooms. All linen is provided. Apollo Bay Eco YHA has two spacious communal lounges, two fully-equipped kitchens, several outdoor balconies and a rooftop deck offering spectacular views across the bay and coast in one direction and the Otways in the other. This visually pleasing hostel utilises passive solar design and clever zoning techniques to reduce the level of energy consumption, with the aim of using 50% less water and energy than conventional accommodation.Apollo Bay Eco YHA is a stones throw from the main street and the beach, with a great range of activities including the rainforest, waterfalls, surfing, kayaking, seal colony, paragliding, horse riding on the beach, the Otway Fly treetop walk and the Great Ocean Walking track.Reception is open between 8am - 10am and 5pm - 10pm.

I'm not all that much of a fan of the town of Apollo Bay itself, but it makes for a useful stopover along the Great Ocean Road, and this hostel definitely makes it a lot better than it could've been. Be sure not to miss the lovely short Mait's Rest rainforest hike (about a 15 minute drive west).
