This place just reopened as a backpackers hostel. Since I was their first 'backpacker' checking in, they put me in a 2 room apartment for myself as a surprise! The staff is super friendly, actually the best I met so far during my travels in Australia! I felt at home right away and booked a third night. Location is excellent, 1 minute from the Strand/sea. The building has a historic feel. The area outside is really cosy. I came here to dive the Yongala shipwreck. The meeting place for that dive was only a 10 minute walk, also very convenient.
I liked everything about this place!
