Really good hostel. Probably the best one I've done in Australia. Clean, quiet, comfortable and nice staff. The situation is pretty cool, 10 minutes far away from the city (town), the market and the bus station. Free wifi and 3 computers are available for the guest. In this hostel I really feel like at home. Thanks so much.

Thanx Josh/Trevor/Myra. Have stayed here before. Relaxing hostel. Small capacity gives a homey feel. Parks nearby for exercise. Free WiFi/Computers/coffee/tea/sugar/milk/washing powder/hair dryer. Free bikes to cycle down to the beach for a swim or through the parks and gardens. Attracts the pleasant, quiet guests. Definitely coming back.

I almost liked everything: good staff (especially the big boss Trevor, best staff member I met on my whole Australia trip, Joss is a good guy but its better for him if he stops to sigh when you ask him something ;) ), nice bed (even some singles), nice people (from young till old), nice facilities (almost everything you want)...

Really nothing wrong with all the review.. But it is like leaving in a tent .. You can hear everything around the next 4 rooms ... Clean , well situated , people around good, but if I want to be in a dormitory with all the bangs than it is not worth while to pay the extra for the single... More

Really good hostel, clean with plenty of facilities. Walls maybe a little on the thin side but the quality of the rest of the hostel makes up for it. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Balcony isn't bad too!!

I've stayed at this Hostel twice in the past two months and have had nothing but excellent experiences. Per, "Nick H's review sometimes things can happen for unknown reasons, his review is not at all representative of my experiences. The rooms are backpacker or hostel rooms: they are adequate in size and the beds are very comfortable, linen was good... More

The quality of the hostel itself was average. The walls are thin, so you hear other people rather quickly and the beds where not that comfortable. However, the facilities where good enough. Good showers and enough opportunity to cook and eat. The service was the best. Free bicycles and we could rent a car for only 70 dollars a day,... More

This Hostel was really something. Nothing was too much trouble, It was spotlessly clean and there were 4 Computers on Wi fi for anyone to use free of charge. I would have no reservation recommending it to anyone. One thing to consider though is, if you have problems walking it is quite a walk to the nearest Bus... The double... More

Arrived and paid with 11 year old son for a weekend a long time in the planning. Manager opened the door to our tiny room and foul stale air rushed out. The room was like a cell, no windows, no clean air, disgusting smell. My son jumped on his bed to find greasy stains on the pillow and sheets. He... More
