Great Ocean Road

Well I definitely woke up still drunk with like an hour sleep as I had to meet the bus at 7am. I am not sure how I didn't manage to look horrific as I got dressed in the dark and not really how I was feeling. You know when you are lying on your bed and your alarm goes off but you're not sure where it is, so you scramble to find it and once you have …

My stay in Melbourne begins

So I'm moving to the hostel today which I plan to stay in for the whole time whilst being in Melbourne. If it's not good I will move onto a different one or I wouldn't mind staying in St Kilda, the only thing being is that it's a bit out of the city but would be able to get a tram back into the city easily enough.

So the hostel is in a …

Penguin Island

Luckily this tour started later than the Great Ocean Road one so I had a nice lay in. I really enjoyed this tour, however it was a long day as it is based around the penguins coming in from the sea after feeding all day, and going home to their natural habitat and going to their families. I wish the tour was just may be in the evening as I felt it …

    It is now called United Backpackers. I enjoyed staying at this hostel as it isn't as big as the other one I have stayed in. The staff on reception are friendly and they have a good kitchen area to cool food with appliance that work. The only downside is that the rooms aren't air con so it does get really hot at night even with the fans on and window open. There also isn't a laundry room but it is due to open soon. There is large lockers under the bed to store your stuff and the location is amazing.

    Average regarding cleanliness. Big kitchen but underground, no windows. No common area. I arrived before check in time with heavy luggage, I wanted to leave them in the hostel and go for a walk... I did it, but had to pay for storing them. I know I'm "just" a backpacker, but considering I stayed one week it was a very cheap and lame behavior on their behalf. Go somewhere else.
