Quite far from the town and all the bars/shops etc but a lovely hostel. could be doing with a TV in the lounge area.


What a wonderful cozy hostel! Very welcoming atmosphere with an excellent location right in front of the beach! Definitely recommend this place!


A hostel that I would definitely go back to. Beautiful place and excellent atmosphere with all the artwork and bird themed interior deco. Very clean and peaceful hostel. During our stay it seemed to be more to adult taste which was a big plus. Located outside the town center so best reached by car.


Can't recommend this place highly enough, totally chilled out backpackers right on the water with a short drive to town. If you are travelling as a couple ask for the Spoonbill room as you can see the entire night sky from room and balcony, priceless! Naomi was great with info on the town, beaches and lakes and giving us the best backpacker room we have ever had!

Very nice small quiet hostel. Located a bit outside of town but the owner will pick you up. Just ask :-) Very clean and awesome owners


Very nice hostel, very nice. The owners are so lovely, help you out with anything. The rooms and the house are so sweet, very personal note and all those little details. Felt very welcome, almost like home. From the dining room you could see the beach, and the beach was so awesome, even when the wheather was stormy and rainy. The woodfire was very good.
