I booked for 3 nights first of all but extended to 8 and brought my friend over as well. Very friendly staff, they can help you finding nice excursions for lower prices. The rooms are clean and the common area (garden) became my new 'living'. It's a good place to make friends!

Really nice athmosphere! A place where it is easy to make friends, because of the events organised in the evenings. Good looking and clean rooms, best bathroom in my hostel experience in Australia! Nice and helpfull staff.

Dreamtime is the best hostel I've stayed in so far. It is definitely not a party hostel, however everyone is very social. If you want to talk to people, they're there, if not, that's fine too. Most people who stay here are looking to relax and just chill. The staff is very friendly too! They will help you if you... More

Initially booked a few nights but extended my stay, as does everyone who stays here. This hostel is one of the best I've stayed at. Clean, relaxed atmosphere, friendly, home away from home. The staff are super friendly, Erin was especially helpful in answering all of my hundreds of questions! I would definitely stay here again, didn't want to leave!

Fantastic hostel - clean, spacious, plenty of good showers, lovely and helpful staff, organised evening events, free wifi allowance, airport shuttle, lots of fridges, only $1 for 3hrs of good aircon. Would 100% recommend staying here. Large shopping complex just across the road and great deals on tours etc. Brilliant atmosphere

Stayed 5 nights at Dreamtime. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Chris was super in booking trips for us at great prices. Entertainment in the evenings - the courtyard is a great place to relax and chat. Bedroom was immaculate as was the bathroom and kitchen. Nice powerful showers! Big shopping complex across the road with Coles/train station/cinema. 100% stay... More

Feels like a home from home with super comfy rooms, laid back atmosphere, great areas to chill out and great music in the courtyard. The dorm room I was in with en-suite bathroom was spotlessly clean and tidy. The staff were all so helpful and friendly and Erin on reception was really knowledgable and helpful with booking my trip to... More

A perfect, clean, nice Hostel. Was there 2 times for one night. Chris was recommending and organizing in advance. Perfect. The hostel is really nice, a old house nice decorated with all what I needed. The offer as well single or double bed rooms for an affordable price, for people who don't like to stay in a shared room.

This is my favourite place we stayed in our 3 month trip! Staff were great, Sian in particular was so helpful with booking us with diving/snorkelling stuff, thank you for everything! Loved our room, it was cosy and homely. Great outdoor area and pool are perfect. A/C is $1 for 3 hours, you just put coins in in the room... More
