Fixing a hole in my door

Hey guys I have a 2 inch long 1/4 inch high hole in my door. How do I go about fixing it? Its also got a wood finish so that may be tricky.
This is a photo of it from the front

And this is from the other side of the door

I'm completely clueless on what to do, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to the forums!

Ideally you replace the door. You could push in the rough areas and use a filler like Durham's Rock Hard Putty to fill the hole and the try and replicate the finish texture. I doubt you can patch it and make the repair disappear but you can make it not as noticeable.

..Its a hollow core door with a hardboard skin..and a whole like that is pretty hard to repair unnoticeably..especially since it is 'textured', but Marksr suggestion is probably the way to go, without replacing the door..(which wouldnt be that expensive..for a flat finished door. You may not find the same style/texture door nowadays.) tho may bestill available in your 'Non-US' area...?!?
