    Such a nice hostel in an absolutely beautiful location surrounded by mountains! Super clean rooms and bathrooms and well stocked kitchen. Staff I met were also very friendly. It’s about a 2 min drive to the Hooker Valley track or you can walk 30/45 mins.

    Good hostel with a friendly vibe, but unfortunately, the smell of body odour was quite strong in my hostel. Nonetheless, I found that the facilities were good, and I had a good night’s rest.
