This is a top class hostel with everything you need to have a relaxing and fun stay....
On arrival we were greeted warmly and was instantly impressed by the look of the property....lots of hand drawn art work, and a reception communal area with lots of choice for excursions etc...
The room itself was great. We shared a private double room (room 10) which had a tv in, and was incredibly clean....cold not fault. Bed was comfortable and the room had a fridge and aircon ($1 for 3 hrs) for your convenience. For those who are safety conscious the room also had a safe. For us the location was perfect right by the kitchen, toilet and shower room - and no complaint of noise seemed well sound proofed.
The communal areas are what really made this hostel for me. Outside picnic tales (shaded and lit in the evening), plenty of hammocks and grass areas, outdoor BBQ and a pool area with plenty of sun lounges. All of which were immaculately clean (the staff are regularly keeping on top of things without being "imposing")....the only thing I would say is that it cold do with maybe one or two more picnic tables as they often get full early and as there is such a lovely community spirit you don't want to miss out on the evenings fun and laughter.
The Aussie BBQ was great and Gabrielle really knows how to win a crowd over from all corners of the globe, really funny with great food for $12 a bargain !!! ( I also won a prize to an brackets an added bonus)
The clientele was really mixed, from children to people in their 70's....but mainly backpackers this being said it never got rowdy, always a chilled out vibe. The meal in the woodshed is great if you're travelling on a budget, but not so great if you want to upgrade....difficult to find a seat....however if its free you can't really complain. I would more so recommend the green ant Mexican...beautiful fajitas which you can get vouchers for money off at reception.
Finally, the staff were excellent, special mention to Laura on reception who could not do more for you and the other guests, always happy to help with bookings etc...and still friendly after the long working day!!! And also mike, a god send in the bus to and from the city centre....and was meticulous in cleaning and tidying. This place is a credit to the owners....thank you!!!
We had room 10 great for couples and convenience of facilities.
