I am fairly certain this place is a contender for the worst backpackers' in Australia. The place is entirely unsigned (which never a good indicator from the start), in a beautiful old building. Unfortunately, everything is downhill from there. I arrived on a rainy, windy night to find that my room's window was open. I lifted it up to close... More

Very disappointing. I agree - sad to see such a beautiful building in such a state. This could be an amazing place. The building really has potential, and it wouldn't even need much/any work, just some staff that give a #$%^. I arrived to a room which had messy, dirty sheets on the bed (I could literally make out where... More

I been in this Hostel for 2 months and the atmosphere was like a family, probabily beacause the hostel is not really big and also because the people that work there are special, always smiling and really friendly.. if you want spend a good time and have a fun don't think go to Veranda Valley

I've read the references that other travellers left a few years ago and felt like I have to leave a good word for that beautiful old place. I don't know why it changed, but it definitely did! Like some of the others already mentioned, it's a beautiful old building and definitely NO PARTY HOSTEL, which I definitely appreciate some times.... More

The new manager has bought a severely run down, yet glorious, old house. There is building work going on presently and the amenities are better. When i arrived i had paid for a single room only to find it was taken, they very kindly put me in a 4 bedded room on my own, unfortunately no breakfast was offered as... More
