Koala breakfast was delicious and worth the $30, although to hold the koala was an extra $18. Good chilled atmosphere, nice pool and cheap drinks at the hostel bar.

Good location, near beaches and walking paths that are good fun after borrowing snorkelling equipment from the hostel. Rooms had perfect air con and kitchen was pretty clean. Having the koala sanctuary onsite was definitely a novelty but was annoying having tourists coming through and clogging up the same desk that hostel guests had to use too meaning you could wait for ages but that was the only downside.

Great Koala Sanctuary next door, but apart from that buses or a car are needed to get to anything else on the island. Good relaxed atmosphere at the hostel, but security needs to be improved as there is no luggage storage, bags are just left in the bar area, and no lockers.

The dorm cabins were very nice and clean. They also appeared to be recently renovated which was a nice treat! The koala sanctuary on property was also a cool bonus, and was totally worth going to see. The one issue I had was that the cabins didn't lock automatically when you left the room. There was a sign on the door, but I didn't notice it the first couple times I went out and so I probably left the cabin unlocked. But otherwise a great hostel!

Not to bad. There isn't really Michael to do on the island anyway. There's a beach and some restaurants 5minute walk away so that's good. You need to hire a 4x4 if you want to see the island, the staff at reception can arrange it all for you. The koalas are in the hostel, it's at the back bit you need to pay to go inside the sanctuary and extra to hold the koala so just know. If you're only staying here for the koalas it doesn't really matter, anyone can come in and visit the sanctuary.

Lots of families, would not recommend if you are solo travelling and/or looking to meet people and party. However, short walk from Horseshoe Bay and cafes/restaurants which is great. Hiring a 4x4 is a must here!
