Fantastic place to stay. Good facilities but more importantly great staff who make you feel very welcome. We stay three nights in a double room. Great central location on the Tablelands to base yourself to visit the many local tourist sites.
Youngaburra is a small historic town with all basic facilities, supermarket, pub, cafes, restaurants, etc.
I have been hosteling since the late 60's and this rates as one of the best, if not the best thanks to the staff, especially Tracy and Dave. Thanks again guys.
