“Worth Stopping In”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2011

This place is great. The manager, Tony, is very friendly. Bunks are comfortable!

Even though this is officially classified as a wilderness hostel by Hostelling International - it isn't the normal wilderness hostel. The place has been renovated recently and has full facilities: kitchen, flushable toilets, showers, and laundry. No Internet.

I would recommend staying here to anyone passing through.
