Ants everywhere including the top bunk, bedrooms floors, communal spaces and shower rooms. Not much of an atmosphere. Some of the staff were rude eg kicking people out of rooms to clean and kitchen before shutting for cleaning time. The walk from the greyhound is predominately in the dark, no shuttle provided unlike other hostels. Free breakfast was offered, Netflix and chill out spaces in the wilderness were nice. Several people commented to us that it didn’t deserve the rating it had on website and a few moved out early.

No hand soap or towels in the women's dorm. In the morning the tables and chairs were covered with rainwater. There was no dry place to sit to have breakfast. Large shard of beer bottle glass in the downstairs toilet floor by reception. During my two week road trip from Cairns to Brisbane this was the place with the most uncomfortable mattress.
