Staff were lovely and the location was perfect for an overnight stay doing the NC500. Not the nicest hostel I’ve stayed in but perfectly adequate for the price. I was in a 4 bed female dorm and unfortunately bumped my head on the ceiling a few times being on the top bunk. But other than that everything was fine. Breakfast and kitchen facilities were great.

This hostel was OK…it’s pretty basic compared to others I have stayed at but the price was also cheaper. I used it as a one night stop off and it did the job. There was no specific parking, and parking on the road as restrictions, I don’t know how strict that is. Nobody was there when I arrived, someone had to call the man to come check us in. The room was basic and really needs some refurb. There was a free breakfast included. I won’t stay here again.
