Booked a twin room was very cheap for the Easter Long Weekend. Had two beds and ceiling fan. Great for sleeping curtains blocked out all sunlight. Had a share kitchen and bathroom. Kitchen and Bathroom were very tidy and clean. Did have a bistro but we did not eat there. Very close to the beach just about a 100 metre... More

This is a mediam scale hostel. The rooms are good but not great. The kitchen is clean and enough space to cook. We slept in a double room, it was very small and hot. Overall the whole place was abit messy. Also the dining area closes around 9.30. This is abit early. There is free wifi and free PC's to... More

This hostel was in my opinion very horrible. The only thing this hostel was thinking about was their bistro. If you wanted to play a pool game with your friends, or play ping pong, you could not bring your own drinks. you had to buy a coke at the bistro. Which is a lot of money for just backpackers. Besides... More

The rooms are cool, the facilities are good and the family friendly atmosphere generated by the... More

We stayed here camping for one night. The facilities were good and the place was beautiful as described in the others reviews. Wi-fi worked okay. There is breakfast for 6 AUD, which was good. Some points that decreased our rating: no hairdryers, no lite milk (in the breakfast). We stayed too short to take notes about other stuff.

Didn't have the best nights ever here. I had a room to myself which was nice but sadly enough I couldn't sleep because the curtain didn't cover the door and everyone could see in at all times and the rooms were ridiculously humid as there was no air con. The staff was really friendly though so that gives the place... More

Gorgeous grounds with amazing staff who do anything and everything they can to help. The bistro is really cheap with really tasty good quality food. Animals everywhere! So many ducks, different breeds of ducks too, peacocks, guinea fowl, chickens! Lovely pool area and huge tennis and basketball courts. Not like a hostel at all, more like a resort! It is... More
