  • Great hostel. The staff is exeptional friendly and the showers exeptional clean. The kitchen is clean too and really nice, as well as the terrace and the hammocks The hostel is a little bit far off the track, but like this it is really quiet. Still it is in walking distance to the beach, but unfortunatelly not to bigger supermarkets. We pretty much enjoyed the daily trivia-night. It was a great fun!

  • Typical Australian Hostel. However, if you did not book your sailing trip with the hostel the owner is not very pleased and leaving your baggage until return will cost you 6 AUD pp. Washing mashine only cold and 4 AUD. 1 page printing 50 cent. On the day of your departure baggage cannot be put in the locker room except you pay 6 AUD again. Aircon switches off at 9:30 am. Therefore although the rooms are nice we felt a bit ripped off.
