    Hi all,

    I have a seasons pass and am aiming to head up to Falls in the coming weeks (mostly weekend trips) and looking for any recommendations for any on or off mountain accomodation for one person. Happy to share a bunk room (I have stayed in backpacker hostels overseas) but havent found much luck in finding such accomodation yet. I looked at University Ski Club however they do not take guest bookings.

    Thanks everyone!

    We used to get an unpowered site at a caravan park and sleep in the car. Hot showers, drying room, common room - what more do you need?

    More upmarket, try motels in Mt Beauty or Tawonga. On mountain try feathertop lodge and maybe halleys. Not sure if halleys still has bunk rooms.

    Alpha may have a bunk room, not sure

    You could try Chorki's. Bogong lodge have a system of membership where you can join just for the year, could be worth contacting them, although I suspect it's a bit late.

    Given bookings would be down and the school holidays have been poor they could be happy for the revenue.
