Owners made us feel unwelcome as though we were intruders in their personal space. Very particular about how things are kept. We arrived at 7pm and had booked a female dorm. Upon arrival, we were told that our room wasn't ready yet. When we finally checked in, it was not a female dorm as we had requested. When bought this to the owners attention, we were rudely told that there was nothing they could do because they were fully booked. There must be better hostels in 1770. Wouldn't recommend.


At cool bananas, they don't need a security guard as Greg the owner knows when someone isn't living there and he is also the cleanest person in the worlds and so is the hostel!! The staff are all lovely and wild! Location could not be better if they tried. Supermarket, gas station, tattoo & piercing studio and info centre and main beach are literally 5 minutes away. Kitchen has everything you need and spacious. Can't fault this hostel.

Honestly my favorite hostel so far and I would have loved to have stayed for a lot longer! The people staying there were the nicest, friendliest people ever, the lounge room with free wifi was awesome for hang outs with everyone and everything was very very clean especially the kitchen - great stay!

Very nice indoor and outdoor communal area which is very good for socializing, super clean, close to the beach and shops in town. Best hostel I've ever stayed at.


Cool bananas is one of the best places ive stayed in Australia! staff are really helpful and the hostel overall was really clean! i think the owner has a little OCD ;) I Loved the whole atmosphere of the place! i would recommend cool bananas to anyone! =D


Best hostel on the east coast! This hostel is perfect for meeting people and has a real good atmosphere. Booked an extra night to chill out a bit more. Beach and supermarket nearby. Only thing is everything is wide open always and all the time, no place for your valuables!


Very nice hostel with a good atmosphere. It's a great place to relax for a couple of days. Would recommend it to everyone.
