I stayed at this backpackers for 3 months in 2008, I arrived with 97 days left on my visa, and $40 left in my bank account, and was desperate for somewhere to stay and some farm work. Cathy was amazing, she let me stay in staff quarters and help clean and look after the hostel to earn my keep until... More

The cardboard house is a joke. 25$/night for a mattress coloured by stain, in a 6 beds dark room with only one power socket, and squashed cockroaches on the walls. It smelt beetle juice. You need to pay 5$ for a linen, or a pillow, or cutlery lol ! There's nothing in the kitchen, one toilet for everybody, and all... More

The worse hostel i've ever seen, the owner is rude and liar, she'll say that she'll find you a job but she never not even try to find it! the place is very dirty, full of cockroaches and there is only one toilet for everyone and no equipment in the kitchen..

Very average backpackers. Very small frame of reception hours. It is close to town and the river is very closeby. Refurbishments are in progress but it looked as if they already were in progress for a while. Reasonable overnight hostel On your way through the coral coast.

The fact that this place is even still open is a suprise to me. I stayed here two weeks and the owner didnt do a thing to try and help me get work. I cannot begin to describe the incompetence, laziness and rudeness of the owner. Kitchen can barely be called that and there were cockroaches running around. Overpriced aswell.... More

Havin' to pay extra for a kissen on my dorm bed? The kitchen is not equiped at all: cups, plates and cutlery are missing out! In general the place is quite run-down. Last but not least the office is not occupied most of the time so you must call a mobile phone to check in or out! Value for money... More
