Jason how could we forget you! Every time somebody drives to the National Park, I say "If your not back by 8pm I will call the Police" and they all laugh at me. When I take guests for a drive to Sleaford Bay I always tell them about you how you walked from the YHA to the National Parks and... More

Just to let you know I do not push tours as we do not get commissions for anything we suggest, we just want everybody to have a good time. Most guests let us... More

Cleanest hostel that I have ever stayed in, Debbie and Robert are lovely hostesses, they go above and beyond their duty to make sure you have a present stay. a large movie room with free rental of movies to watch and games to play to keep you entertained in your downtime. Excellent value for money.
