This place is actually not a hostel. If I had to describe it I would say this is an adventure-bungalow-almost-resort! In the outdoor and open kitchen you meet a wide range of creatures: curious possums, cuddly koalas, Mannie, the kookaburra, hungry backpackers and many more. Cooking here becomes an unique experience. The rooms are clean and because the bed frames are made out of solid wood you won't feel like during an earthquake when your bed-mate turns around. Owners = family; just lovely!
GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS hostel. the setting is like a 5-star resort. The hosts are fun and friendly. LOVED the kitchen. A tip: this hostel is in the forsest, so be prepared to encounter LOTS of bugs and possibly even a snake or two in the trees while you stay here. I personally didn't mind, because the setting is so beautiful...also, it's in a forest, so a bit of wildlife is to be expected!
Very nice hostel with a good atmosphere. Outside town so you need to take the bus, bike or car to activities. Very nice outdoor kitchen and always clean. We heard koalas through the nights, a good place if you like nature and wildlife.
