We were travelling through from Sydney to Brisbane and decided that we needed to get off the road for the night. When we came across this place I was amazed at how cool the place was!

For the grand total of $0 we were able to surf, kayak and paddleboard. No other hostel competes with that value. The owners and staff are incredible and help create a unique vibe. They offer a plethora of activities to keep you busy. I personally recommend the "look at me now" headland at emerald beach for a sunset or dorrigo... More
