Relaxing laidback place, reception was very welcoming / friendly / helpful, decent location right near bus stop between Newcastle & Nelson Bay & beaches, showers & toilets were good. The dorm room was cold, but there's plenty of blankets around to use. I got lucky with a rare double bed for no extra cost! Fridge in the room was handy, kitchen was spacious. TV has a USB slot if you want to bring your own movies, as there's limited DVDs & no local TV. Loads of activities, I'll be back in summer!
