Hoatel was ok. Not that many facilities. But good cheap option


A really great Hostel, so close to all amenities .....we will definitely be staying there again


Receptionist was super nice and it was great that we could park our bikes right infront of the cabin.


I wouldn't bother to be honest.


We stayed here on our way south and loves the little cabin we stayed in. Very clean and neat, probably one of the best rooms we've had in Australia. The staff are really friendly, with one awesome lady even dropping a number of us off at the late night bus even when reception was closed. Beware though, there isn't much around the hostel itself, there is a nearby shopping centre and supermarket but is a little way out of town.


Lovely, clean, peaceful hostel.


Coffee buy per herself.


Very relaxing friendly place


Great stop over place.showers good and fairly large. Large kitchen and dining room. Bedrooms good size.


nice and friendly staff!! Manager offered me a lift to greyhoundstation at 3 am


Great, especially the welcome from counter staff. Hard to find perhaps due to local street quirkiness! Could do with bedside lamps in the cabins.
