This place is a very welcoming hostel compared to some of the bigger party type hostels i have stayed in. The atmosphere is relaxed but even more welcoming are Tracey and Bart. They are so willing to help you out and because we had a campervan with us they suggested lots of places to visit. Bart makes excellent pancakes too- ask him to challenge you to get a clear picture of a platypus so if you do he will cook you a pancake! If the dogs are around they are just as welcoming as the staff. The rooms are a good size and plenty of warm showers available after trying the night canoe- we didn't spot much on our night because it was so foggy but we did see possums, and heard plenty of tree kanagroos. The platypus viewing area is just a stroll down the road and is a must if you stay in Yungaburra.
