Light House Hostel
The Light House Hostel is a loving, caring and sharing place to be - when you stay with us, 10% of your booking is donated to a charity to help provide home for people in need. We believe in sharing our success to help others.
The Light House is a truly awesome place to stay, bursting with character and charm. We have created a fusion of contemporary living space with good old fashioned family inspired hospitality. Our guests often say it’s more like a family home than a hostel, with a laid back attitude and cosy friendly atmosphere. The Light House is the place to chill out, relax and make new friends.
We host regular campfires and BBQs in our large back garden so bring your guitars and best (or worst) singing voices and join us for a good old sing along around the fire; dancing is optional! Or if it’s too wet outside you can relax in our spacious comfy lounge and enjoy a wide selection of movies on our home cinema system with HD projector and surround sound.
We have a fully equipped self catering kitchen including a dish washer......so no need to wash up, Yey! We offer a free breakfast and complimentary tea and coffee all day, high speed Wi-Fi, access to a desk top computer, free lockers, linen, towels and shower gel. We operate a no shoes policy in The Light House to keep the house in spotless order, a shoe rack and slippers are provided at the entrance making it feel like a real home from home.
We offer a variety of bright and spacious rooms ranging from 4-bed to 10-bed mixed dorms. Each room has a double bed to accommodate couples or families. Any guest under the age of 18 can stay in the private room with a family member who is over 21. The communal living areas are clean and cosy providing a great space to relax and unwind after a busy day of sight seeing.
There is a no smoking policy throughout the hostel with smoking area out front. We are not a party hostel, so the communal areas are locked at midnight to ensure every guest gets a good night’s sleep.
