We stayed 3 nights and it was wonderful! The location, the staff, the hikes, the atmosphere.

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.

This is in a very nice location in Wilderness. The only issue is the bar which stays open till 2am and can get rowdy. It's a distance from most of the accommodation, though. The communal dinner is a nice idea and the meals are cooked by the volunteers. It's pretty clean and comfortable.

This place is very chill and cool. However the security is bad and while I was there several guests had their backpacks stolen from the rooms. The staff seemed to not really care or be bothered. Because of this, I left early.
