I would just like to say that the people that have left bad/unpleasant reviews of this place obviously haven't stayed in many places in Australia (that's explained buy I've been traveling for 1 month or 2 months) I was only planning on staying in this hostel for a few day but after meeting all the lovely and pleasant people there...

I recently had two visitors travelling Australia contact me for accommodation in my town so I directed them to Adventurers Resort. I regret making this decision. Every evening I visited my two friends at the so called resort, only to witness how unclean and poorly managed the place is. Random drunks just walk in and help themselves to sitting with... More

You get what you pay for. We luckily had our car so any valuables were kept in there. We didn't feel like the place was secure, in fact it felt like being in a slum area. Anybody could walk off the street, especially once reception closes. The whole downstairs area - lounge and kitchen - is left open and accessible... More

This is easily the worst hostel I stayed in the 2 months I've been in Australia! The whole place felt really unsecure as anyone could just walk in off the street, and the doors on the rooms looked like they would give way with a push! The rooms were big but nothing was in them so felt really weird, the... More

I only planned to stay a night or two but ended up staying for a week. Its a cool hostel. Really friendly staff, clean, great showers, fridge in each room, big kitchen, pool table... but the best thing is the pool and decking area. Its cleaned regularly (had a chat with the pool cleaner today) and just has a really... More

Room was clean and tidy. Lovely big kitchen. Helpful staff. Fridge in room was broken. All in all value for money. It is about a 10 minute walk to town where there are very nice shops and a couple of colonial buildings. Waterfront is very beautiful near the hostel where there are a couple of museums. There is a vending... More

of course this is a hostel and not a expensive 5-stars hotel! But everybody is welcome and the team helps you with every problem! the room is spartan but clean as well as the bathroom! With the pool and a good location I can just recommend this hostel!

We stayed here from 29th of June till 6th of July 2015. The Hostel is very loud and there's a lot of noise and loud people at night. We couldn't sleep most of the week because of the noise that came from downstairs. Then the one night (saturdaynight) when people went to the pub or something, we decided to play... More

Been here for over a week and never been more glad to see the back of a place! Yes the sheets were clean but thats about it! Think the bathrooms and toilets got cleaned once during my stay! An whilst they advertise as having a kitchen you can use there is conditions, like if you need to use any pots... More

ive been travelling through Australia for a month now and this place is the worst I've stayed in. The rooms are just that, rooms. The floor is concrete and the bunk beds are uncomfortable and feel unsafe if you're sleeping underneath. The shower was cold. The whole place has a motel feel with some people there who do not appear... More
