    One of the best hostels i’ve stayed in. We came for a weekend, there was a dj spinning vinyls on the Saturday + live music on the Sunday. The bar and music are closed at approx. 11pm which was great to sleep also. The food and cocktails Abby made were of very high standard and the staff super friendly. We booked the volcano tour through them, unfortunately the weather wasn’t ideal but the service incredible. Thank you again, we will be back.

    The Doozy Koala is the best!! Beautiful courtyard and the best atmosphere- there is an area to chill out or an area to cut loose, whatever you’re into. The staff is amazing- they were fully booked up when I showed up and went out of their way to get me a mattress so that I would have a place to sleep that night. The food is also incredible. I loved my stay here and will definitely be staying here again and recommending to all my friends!

    Everything is designed around you paying money at the bar. Frustratingly so. Apart from the blatent ways to force you to pay, its a good hostel.

    We weren’t here for long but it’s a good place to stay social and very laid back the bar area could do with some work but that will come in time apart from that we had a good stay here

    Very Good

    Super comfy beds, good bar, good Sunday night entertainment. My issue with this hostel was that I couldn’t choose when it was time to stop the party and go to bed; my first night there were about 15 people in my 8 person room still parting till 3am. I love a party but just know that if you stay here, it doesn’t really end. In terms of security, your room is open for anyone to walk in, you’re provided with a locker (byo lock) but I came back one day and my locker had busted open

    Check how much you owe on your booking and do the conversion yourself!!! You've already paid a deposit. Staff are always charging you their standard rate when you arrive at the check in so make sure you say something! - otherwise cool hostel, chill vibes, laid back with a typical Aussie crowd
