I loved staying at this hostel! It's very cozy and friendly. You actually see the staff cleaning daily, so you know the place is clean. Bathrooms are a little outdated, but nothing to be concerned about. I met a lot of nice people at this hostel, including the person I ended up travelling with for 5 weeks. They are very... More
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Heaps of free stuff including free WiFi, computers, greyhound pickup, surfboards and more. The closest hostel to the town centre, beach and koala hospital. The only hostel in town that does not shut off its lights at 2230. A quirky hostel owned and run by young friends who met on the backpacking trail. Our location is perfect; we are by far the closest hostel to the beach as well as the koala hospital, the closest hostel to the bars and town centre. Just check out our location compared to other backpacker accommodation in town. It is the only hostel in town that does not turn its lights off at 2230. We love the night - we love to boogie. So 24 hour kitchen and lounge area are yours. It is a funky hostel owned and run by 3 young surfers, who loved backpacking so much that they would do anything to get-back-out and explore the world; Nicael even sold his life on eBay. We have created a hostel we would have loved to stay in. It is alternative with great music and art everywhere, including plenty of art from an old friend of ours who just won the 2013 RAWards AUSTRALIA Visual Artist of the Year!!!! She is pretty cool. But there is also a large amount of art from talented backpackers like you, who were nice enough to paint beauty on our walls. We are alternative and quirky people doing what we love, and we want you to be a part of it. We want this to not just feel like another sterile/big hostel where everything is about money, but rather like a home where you always feel welcome and a part of any adventures we are planning. So if we are going for a surf, we will invite you. If we are doing a food shop or alcohol run, you can jump in. If we are playing a drinking game or going to a bar, we love it if you join. So if you are a little adventures, a little quirky, and want something different than your average 'Mr Monopoly' hostel, then come join us.

So if you are young at heart, arty and alternative - please join us, However if you are looking for a more big chain type hostel where the lights go off at 1030 at night - then please seek accommodation at one of the other great hostels in town. ... more less
