Fantastic hostel. Very new, clean and breakfast is nice. Did a platypus tour. Very easy to book at the hostel. Michelle, the tour guide was the nicest. Receptionist however had an attitude from the beginning. She was annoyed and seemed bothered by any question you might have. Location is painful though. Far away from supermarket, airport, bus stop an everything else. There is no Uber and buses are not of any help really. Taxis do operate!

Really the only bad parts were location to the stores, but an Aldi will be built close to it soon that should change that. Was like a mini hotel and a great place to rest/break up your journey
