Friendly and helpful staff. I was originally put in one room with two other people who are arriving late so she changed my room to another one with two travelers so I won't be woken up in the middle of the night. Room and common space are both clean and tidy. What I love the most is that the kitchen... More

We spent over a month travelling up the east coast of Australia as a group of 3, so stayed in a fair few places but this was our favourite. A smaller hostel with neat and roomy 6 bed dorms, but it was the service and added extras that set this place apart. They have a free shuttle to and from... More

Very good hostel well managed, very quiet here in winter, would highly recommend. The kitchen has a cool set up. Not very close to the beach would be a longish walk, 5 minutes by car. Couldn't really fault this place. If you're here in winter bring warm clothes

Had a great time in this hostel! Comfortable bunkbeds, clean rooms and bathrooms. The big kitchen, living room and pool area are inviting places to hang around and easy to meet other people. Staff is great and helpful!

As the title implies, this charming hostel is clean, quiet, and comfortable (although goon is actually banned too). The staff was friendly and accommodating, the bathrooms were clean, the beds are comfy, and the water from the showers was hot when demanded. The staff even picked me and my oversized backpacks up from the bus stop and gave me a... More

I spent really great time in this hostel. Staff are friendly, helpful and sympathetic. Hostel is clean, with good location and a parking. Staff organize trips to the hospital for koalas and feeding the kangaroos. I would definitely recommend!
