We stayed in a van in the car park at the back and paid $10 each a night. We had full use of the hostel facilities, which were immaculate. The bathrooms are beautiful and obviously cleaned regularly as they were spotless. The kitchen is very well stocked with free tea/coffee, I would maybe add a few more hobs as there... More

Stayed for two nights, surrounding area and beach was great and very peaceful. Hostel was nice and well looked after, especially the communal areas. Unfortunately though the staff were a bit strange, not your usual hostel workers. Whilst reasonably polite during the day I found more than one of them a bit strange. Part of the deal with staying with... More

clean, friendly and chill. wanted to stay for only 2 nights but hat to extend our stay for another 2 nights (next tour was already booked. if we wouldn't have had to move on, we'd definitely have extended our stay for at least 2 weeks!) all in all: best hostel I've ever been to! feels like home. :-)

The hostel is just phenomenal. The kitchen and bathrooms offer a lot of space and are very practical. The atmosphere is very laid back and the owner, Greg is just a really great guy. He's full of energy and always ready to help. When I got stung by a Stingray, he applied a compress and called the ambulance. The Internet... More

I only stayed here one night on my trip around Australia. Very relaxed and enjoyable environment. Pretty sure they had free wifi. Would stay here again if I ever went back. Walking distance to the beach and you can easily hitch a ride to the Town of Seventeen Seventy (I opted to walk)
