We run as a BYO alcohol hostel so nip next door and get some beers and join us to meet other travellers in our outdoor living area or around the fire. Cook up a storm on our BBQ or in the fully equipped kitchen. If cooking isn't your thing, sit back, relax and join our communal meal made with fresh local ingredients and homegrown herbs!

PREMIER BUS: If you're coming in on the Premier Motor Service, please contact the property when you make the booking so we know your time of arrival and can inform you of the late arrival check-in procedure. You should know that the bus drops you around 30km out of town, you will need to organise a taxi into town and let them know you're staying with us. Simply come and see us the next morning to pay.

GREYHOUND BUS: If you're coming on the Greyhound, you will be met by one of our volunteers who will walk you over to the hostel which is less than a 2 minute walk from the bus stop.

Cool hostel and a good stopover for a long bus journey. It had a very cliquey vibe and the staff weren’t the friendliest. The kitchen was so so hot and not very clean and the bathrooms weren’t the cleanest either. But it was alright for a nights stay!

I’ll start with the positives. Close to greyhound bus stop, and in the middle of town. But be warned, a tiny town with no phone signal. Our hostel door was kept open all night , so didn’t feel safe. Also no air con so heat was unbearable. The vibe was very off, we weren’t even told to be quiet over a light conversation, we were just hushed. Felt very much for long term stayers only, and made to feel quite unwelcome if you weren’t. Our food bag was also removed out the fridge, so had to chuck it.
