Staff were super friendly and helpful. Air con at reception was nice.. shame it was so hot in the bedrooms though with just one little fan. Also, the water in the shower didn't flow well down the drain, it ended up like a bath tub that it took so long to drain - not great.
We were amazed and delighted with our hoey moey experience. We were traveling as a group of 4 girls and absolutely loved our stay. The rooms were basic but had everything we needed (specifically a place to cool our drinks). The hoey Moyes pub was a blast every night the people we meet were great fun and the beach was perfect. I would recomend this motel for anyone looking to have fun and socialise. Loved it
Dirty, noisy and smelly. The dorm was shared with working holiday Visa that have been living there for months, and I'm sorry to say they live like pigs, and the hostel staff doesn't care at all about cleaning the dorms: the carpet hasn't been vacuumed for ages, room and toilet smelly and dirty, floor covered with clothes and bags and shoes, and really loud noise until late night. I've been in so many hostels in Australia and around the world, and That one could easily be the worst one!
It could be a very cool hostel but the rooms and bathrooms are to small, the floor in the bathroom was always wet and the kitchen is bad. Beds are comfortable and clean.
The Hoey Moey is next to the beach, but quite far away from the high street and unless you have a car is quite isolated. The staff I found were not that helpful and you had to stick tightly to the 3 day rule if you wanted to extend your stay. I was moved room because I did not give enough notice, which was unnecessary as I could have stayed in my bed as it was not booked up, very frustrating. The cleanliness was ok but most of the showers were blocked and a lot of the rooms were really messy!
