Go buy some drywall mud and sandpaper from the hardware store (someone there will be able to help you if you're not sure what you need). Smear the mud over the hole until filled and let it dry (may have to do this more than once if it's a big hole), then sand it until smooth. Paint over the mud spot with whatever paint you used on that particular wall.

I tape the broken vapour barrier with red 'Tuck' tape then put a wood backing in the hole and use small pieces of drywall to patch.

Use drywall compound, or a 'drywall friendly' caulk like Alex ll. This is easy to apply and sets in about an hour, does not shrink in small holes and can be sanded.

If it's small, fill it with mud (drywall compound. ) or caulk like Alex ll. If large, make a backing patch from spare drywall and fit into the hole, hold it with 2 screws, then tape it with mesh tape, then mud it.
