*PLEASE READ ME* hostel could be perfect - located in the greenest part of Wilderness, where both locals and backpackers meet in a great bar with life music. But as a receptionist myself I felt ashamed, how guests are treated there. Don't expect any help from them no matter if it's an extreme Situation (two girls needed to go to Hospital and were basically told not to expect any refund because of this "problem" ) while the other staff is hiding in the kitchen. No one should be treated that way

Nice family run place. Really great staff. For the environment, they had a nice campfire, family dinners, and on some nights live music. Lower points were no lockers and the dorm room building and facilities were quite old.

Located out of town which is great for hiking. But the location also poses a security problem. My dorm room was broken into and my bag ransacked and a few things stolen. When I alerted the owner/staff they were unsurprised and simply noted that this had happened many times before. Yet no security measures were in place (no lockers in the dorms, doors left open). If you have a private room or a car to lock valuables in it's a nice place, but beware of the poor security.

Great staff that are friendly and helpful. Real fun communal bar area and good activities near by that can be booked thru the hostel.
