    Chris is the life and soul of this hostel - runs this hostel solo and he is amazing!!! Picked us up and dropped us off at the Greyhound bus stop, even going as far as driving Tokyo Drift style and chasing down the bus when it left early!! He slaved away at the BBQ for a delicious free meal, staying at this hostel was so brilliant. We got put into a room with no space at check-in as a lady and her kid had overstayed and not informed him so not his fault - he moved us to a nicer room! Thank you!!

    I stayed here for 3 nights and had to comment on the wonderful staff and running of this hostel; I arrived just on time for their weekly Monday BBQ, a fantastic surprise, and the rest of the time proved just as delightful ! A great stop if you have headed out of Sydney and want to continue up the coast. 😊

    Nice place undergoing upgrades at time of stay. Will be better once completed. Staff were helpful and friendly. Unfortunately, as with most places in the country, insulation is non-existent, and winter nights are not comfortable.

    Ordinary. Not a lock to be found. Couldn't find staff in the morning. My room couldn't of been more gross. S*** everywhere, no respect given to space. I was out into a overcrowded room originally.
