From nightly bonfires, trivia... More

Where do I start? I have been in and out of the OFS for over a year. Awesome friendly staff, something to do every night, huge chill out areas and a massive back yard for some of the best parties I've had yet in Australia. The hostel is clean, spacious and has something for everyone. Be warned, you will check... More

Staff are fantastic-they will help you with everything, are really friendly and make you feel like you are at home here. I stayed in the girls dorm, which has three rooms and it's own bathrooms and kitchen so it's almost like having your own little flat in the hostel and there are plenty of mixed rooms in different sizes with...
