What a beautiful place to stay! This is not your average hostel! My introverted self generally doesn't like staying at hostels. It's more like a big house with a lot of character and a chilled, one big family vibe. I stayed in my van, so can't comment on the rooms, but there's plenty of living areas to find your own space, a well equipped kitchen and good bathroom facilities. People of all ages staying here and even a family. Jess was super helpful explaining attractions in the local area.



Loved this hostel! One of our favourites on the East coast! Jess was so helpful on check in with so much information! Kitchen is so well equipped, feels like home! Can't recommend enough



Highly recommended, awesome facilities and platypus viewing along the creek was as unique a Australian nature experience as you'll ever get Fantastic
