Positive Reviews

Lovely beach holiday location

The hostel is within easy walking distance of local shops, cafes and restaurants. The beach and Neilsons Park are within eight-minutes' walk. The hostel also provides an area shuttle service during set times. A mini-supermarket is close by and a Woolworths supermarket is 20-minutes' walk away or five-minutes by bus.

Homely accommodation that's great value for money

Designed with the theme of an Aussie wood shed, the hostel has a unique character and is set in a quiet location with inviting gardens that feature hammocks where guests can relax in. The communal areas include a guest lounge and fully equipped kitchen which are kept clean and tidy. The rooms have been described as clean and spacious with comfortable beds and homely decor.

Friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere

The staff contribute to creating a welcoming environment and have been described by guests as friendly, helpful and accommodating. A movie and pizza is organised every Tuesday where guests can relax and socialise together.

Negative Reviews

Noisy neighbours

As in most hostel environments, your sleep may be disturbed depending on how quiet or noisy your neighbouring guests are. Guests advised to bring earplugs.

Unreliable free Wi-Fi service

While a free Wi-Fi service is offered, the connection is unreliable and guests reported that it can be slow and a connection is not guaranteed.

Hot and stuffy rooms

Particularly during the summer months the fans are not sufficient to prevent the rooms from getting hot and stuffy. It may be difficult to sleep at night and guests recommended budgeting for air conditioning which is available at a surcharge.
