    Excellent service and personal touches such as free whiskey on a couple of the nights. We stayed in the Jedi Huts in the garden and they were amazing. Definitely worth booking - they very cosy with lots of lovely touches including disco lights and a guitar if you want to have a more unique experience still. Very good location for visiting the Fairy Pools. The dome in the garden is very pretty and well lit at night time. Very clean and great facilities.

    One of the best hostels we have stayed at. We were in a private twin room so not sure what bunk rooms are like. Kitchen lounge and bathroom facilities are awesome- very clean and well stocked. The hostel walls are covered in memes and facts. Made for a fun stay.

    Nice hostel, which does not show too much from outside, but when you enter, you fell immediately it's special atmosphere. The staff is very kind and helpfull, they even recomend less known places to visit. There are funny pictures and textes everywhere on the wall, even in the restroom! Which made me smile at least hundred times a day. The whole hostel has a very positive energy, that makes you smile and happy. It is well equipped, cosy and nice, the lavatory part is big, clean and nice as well.

    Such a fantastic hostel. Accommodations are above and beyond from instruments in the common room to garden games and a dome to sit for if it rains. The hostel owner is such a fun and welcoming man very excited to spend time with and get to know his guests. Would recommend to anyone

    Had a great stay at the hostel. It's clean, has ample parking, friendly family run business, good lounge and outdoor area. The only thing I didn't like was the bedding. The duvet cover, fitted sheet were really worn out and need replacement. Also, the hostel is shut from 11 am to 3pm for cleaning (which in itself isn't an issue) but despite this, the guests have to make their beds put the duvet cover, pillow cover and fitted sheet on on arrival after travelling/driving long distances.

    I have 2 major problems the female hostel owner. First as 2 of us were checking in for a 5 night stay, our friend (who was staying there 4 nights but couldn't check in until the following day because the first day was full) was sitting by the front door waiting for us to finish, and the woman came over and told him to leave the property because it was guests only. Bad first impression. Also they kick everyone out of the entire hostel from 11-3 for cleaning every day which is ridiculous.
