It was good for a night, as it was convenient for our stop heading down the coast. Arrived at 1030pm and it was good the key was available and staff were accomodating and friendly. It was disappointing to have no sheet or bedding on a plastic mattress which engulfed you while sleeping. It would be nice to have in the... More

We were disappointed by the condition of the cabin and it could do with a good clean. It is great to be able to take your pet to the cabin but shouldn't mean you have to compromise on quality or cleanliness. The bed was hard and uncomfortable, the mattress protector was not fresh and the shower water was hot but... More

Needs a complete overhaul. Also wasn't very clean. Also, not the type of place you want to hang during the day. Did not like having to go outside to use showers & toilets. Wouldn't recommend. A very basic caravan park at best.

We've just returned from a 2 night stay in one of the 2 pet friendly cabins. The cabin was clean but very dated. Had we not had our dog with us then we would of found somewhere else to stay. We couldn't get any channels on the TV from Saturday evening onwards (after reception had closed). On the positive side... More

Worst hostel I've ever been too. The cabins had no heaters, we were freezing during the night and I even got sick. It was smelling cigarette , this was terrible. My clothes smelled cigarettes for the next few days. The people at the reception were rude and unfriendly. I would not recommend you to go there.

Thought I'd have a quick, cheap stop over in Batemans Bay and booked an ensuite cabin. I had trouble just opening the door as it was stuck, walked through cobwebs once I got in, it was so dirty I had to sweep the floor twice, barely any water came out of the shower head, the TV didn't work properly, the...

The caravan park itself is very well kept and clean, the playground, pool and bbq area were clean and tidy, the staff were friendly and helpful. The cabins are very small like a bed sitter and were not like the picture advertised. There was mould in the bathroom and water damage on the ceiling. There were ants and cockroaches running...

Spent 1 nights (booked for 2 but couldn't stay any longer) there in January in one of the 2 cabins on site that were dog friendly. The cabin itself was very small with no separate sleeping area.

“You may wish to negotiate a private room, or double room, if available. Cabins at the back of the main hostel are quieter, and have their own parking. There is a small open air swimming pool, available for hostel guests.”
