    I had a great stay. The hostel is super clean and tidy, close to beach and lake, and also a walk across the causeway from the town centre. The manager was good to deal with and helpful. Highly recommended.

    Nice spot close to the beach with plenty of common area spaces. This has potential to be a good meeting area if youre around the right people.

    The staff is very sweet and helpful. Quite a few options within the facilities, like a tv room, pool and a large kitchen. The room was very tiny.

    Staff was very friendly. Got some good tips to eat out. I only stayed one night so I don’t know how the hostel is normally but I was one of 2 people staying there. Was very quiet. Rooms and Bathroom was clean. The shower did take extremely long to get warm that I ended up having to wash myself with freezing water before it eventually got warm. If you come by car the off road parking is very convenient. I would come here again. Thanks for the stay Wayne

    The hostel was close to the beach and had car parking. The room itself was basic but had everything you needed. The kitchen facilities were good and the bathroom was clean. The office hours were unusual, and the staff were not chatty, but polite. It's close to the highway, and near a cafe and fish and chip shop.

    we found two bed bugs, one jumped and disappeared whereas we managed to get the other with a shoe, so we decided to leave and left a message with the lodge. After sending through images they tried to tell me it was a cockroach that had been dead for some time which we knew wasn’t the case haven’t killed it ourselves. Nothing has been done to rectify the issue and the lodge has done nothing to terminate the pests as they believe there was none. Not to mention there was also a spider. DO NOT STAY.
