After several years I tried a hostel. Simple reason, I joined some backpackers for a trip and this was arranged by them. Everything is good about this hostel but the room that we stayed. We got a 6 bed dorm. The room smelled so bad that you will puke. I sprayed some deodorants but it didn't help. The caretaker said... More

Hi Travellinga1000 miles, Thankyou for your honest review. We are happy you enjoyed the hostel in general but clearly need to look into why the room smelled so bad, as I believe this is a one off.We actually had the carpets cleaned a couple of days prior to your arrival and I can't help but think maybe they had got...

I lived in the beachhouse for two months during my gap year in Australia. It's by far the best hostel I stayed at in Australia (been in perth, adelaide and melbourne as well) During the week it's quiet until noon or midday because everybody is working, but then the whole family arrives home. It's such a great community feeling there.... More

My first experience in an Australian YH and was shocked by the lack of cleanliness and orderliness I would find in YHA elsewhere. The hostel seemed under-managed and cleanliness was a big problem. There were flies everywhere in the kitchen, benches and dinning areas. Fellow travellers failed to keep the kitchen clean and left their waste everywhere. It's not helping... More

This hostel is situated a few kilometres away from the town but they offer a free pick up service to and from the coach stop and also offer a daily drop off and collection from the supermaket which is very welcome as it saves the long walk with all of your shopping. The manager here runs a very tight ship... More

I only stayed here one night (friday to saturday), and it's my first time staying at a YHA. I can't really share much but the first impression went well. Quick service during check in and check out. At the time of stay, there are some backpackers around. I can tell that some of them found some casual job nearby and... More

This hostel is for the young crowd. I am 65+ and for the 3 days there saw no one over 40. That said, everyone was quite open about the place and they left their computers around with no losses. Someone even retrieved mine and I got it back the next morning. The hostel is clean, but some folks do not... More

Friendly staff, right on the beach, tidy rooms nice beds all up its good. We stayed for one night and unfortunately due to rude guests next to us we didn't get any sleep, they decided to play trance music all night until 5am only because I finally got them to turn it off which was accompanied by a rude/smart comment...

Thanks very much for your review. It is disappointing that the actions of some unthinking people detracted from what otherwise should have been an enjoyable stay. We do try to encourage a vibe of "respect for others" in the Hostel and in general most guests embrace this.I would like to think this is a one off. Hopefully we will see... More

Great place, really enjoyed it. It is a bit out of town though. What made it for me was the helpfulness of the staff / owner. In particular there was a (French?) gentleman who was very helpful to me with regards to storing a bike and helpful with many other things. I have posted elsewhere about issues with foreign staff...

Stayed only one night. Dated rooms but clean and the mattress was comfy. Shower was awesome! Fantastic water pressure. Nice outdoor area, volleyball net, basket ball hoop and super close to the beach. Can see it from the hostel. It is a backpackers and that is what you get. I wish I could've stayed more than one night.
