This place has a super friendly vibe to it, really communal which makes it feel like home. The people are great here and so is the food! Chief, the hostel's dog is the best ever and will play with you. Lots of activities provided on the hostel grounds and elsewhere. I would recommend the platypus sighting at night.

Me and my girlfriend had a great couple of days here. The town of Yungaburra was so chilled out and the accommodation was excellent. A cool little hostel in the town with good food along with excellent and clean facilities. The beds were extremely comfortable which makes a nice change for a hostel. It felt more like a cabin we...

Had a great time here when we stayed for 1 night on a trip up from Townsville. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. We also did a kayaking tour which I would recommend. Great way to see the lake and the wildlife. Hostel is clean with a good common area and cooking facilities. No wifi but they do have a... More

Turn off your computer/smartphone and enjoy the moment. Staff very friendly and full of good advices. It's nice, clean, a place to stay if you're in the area. Good activities to do and a good departure for other trip around the Tablelands. You can't miss it. Home sweet home...

The staff was really nice, patient, friendly. They spent time to explain everything we asked. The facilities (bathroom, toilets) were clean as well as the rooms. Good price. The night canoeing tour is magic.

I've took the tour and stayed for some time in the lodge. It was an impressive tour and did friends with other friends from other countries. Our tour leader broke the ice and we shared our experiences in Australia. Very nice tour.

I just came back from my two day one night trip. I didn't expect to have so much fun during the tour, to be honest. The hostel is really clean and the food is good and enough. The stuff is very friendly so that you always feel welcome. The best part of the tour was probably the second day, where... More

Firstly the hostel is excellent, with very friendly staff and good facilities, there's a nice feeling about the place. Secondly, they have plenty of activities too, we hired bikes for half a day and went on a night canoe. The night canoe was excellent, we saw so many animals by torch light including tree kangaroos. Would highly recommend. Yungaburra was... More

We only stayed one night, but the hostel was very friendly. Great kitchen. Enjoyed meeting Dean and Chief - thanks for the beers. Excellent welcome from Bridgette. Private double room was good and the bathrooms were really clean. Real fireplace in the common room which was a great touch. Would stay again if we were in the area.
