Like tiny huts in the forest sourrounded by tons of animals. Really good expierience. Only tiny turn off the kitchen facilities.


Great place to stay. Clean, simple cabins with fridges. Efficient and friendly staff.


This place is good. Staff were quite nice, friendly and helpful. The toilets were a bit nasty at times. Has a really good bar!


Great hostel with chilled atmosphere and 2 minutes walk from the beach.


Nice hostel, great surroundings and friendly staff. Very relaxed environment and the facilities in general were great - kitchens the cleanest kitchen I've seen at a hostel! However our toilet was leaking quite a bit so I reported it to the reception and no one came to fix it - that's the only issue I had.


The private cabins and snacks etc. were expensive compared to elsewhere on the east coast. The hostel is beside the animal sanctuary, a few minutes walk to one beach, has a bus stop outside, has a café and pool on site with a nice lounging area (beanbags).


Great place and great staff very helpful location is fantastic


Very clean and lovely. Great pool area with hammocks and loungers, beanbags in the bar area. Food served all day. Wifi available if a bit expensive! Friendly and efficient staff. Great aircon in the rooms. Kitchen is clean and spacious. There are ants and geckos in the kitchen but this is Australia, just don't leave food uncovered on shelves!! Lots of wildlife, wallabies and parrots etc :) feels more like a holiday camp as opposed to a hostel. Very quiet and chilled, suitable for all ages.


The 6bed dorms are lovely! They're quite new, clean and have aircon. Pool area is nice. Kitchen is alright, lots of stuff broken (only 3 gas pits work, both toasters didnt work, although one was replaced after telling this to reception). A quiet place, if you're expecting parties, go to base! You go to this place to relax and cuddle with a koala (koala park right next door).
